SWIFTER SE

A wide seedbed cultivator for seedbed preparation in one pass

A WIDE SEEDBED CULTIVATOR DESIGNED FOR HIGH DAILY OUTPUTS

SWIFTER SE is a wide seedbed cultivator designed for high daily outputs thanks to the working width of 8.2 to 12.2 metres. Like any other BEDNAR compactors, the SWIFTER SE product line has exchangeable working sections to meet the requirements of soil preparation for a specific crop. Including the combination of up to eight operations in one pass. An advantage of the SWIFTER SE is the independent suspension of the working sections for perfect terrain tracing. Safe transport of the machine, even with the width of 12 metres, is ensured by folding the side frames forward to the drawbar.

Key properties

A professional cultivator with a standard design suitable for traditional soil cultivation, as well as minimization systems.

UP TO 8 OPERATIONS IN ONE PASS

Creating a seedbed for proper and even crop emergence.

Combining several operations into one means fewer passes through the field and lower costs of soil preparation. The front levelling bar or leveller perfectly levels off any unevenness. The front crumbling roller crumbles the clods. The main working section undercuts, aerates and warms up the soil layer. The final clod crumbling is provided by various types of rollers in combination with other equipment behind the rollers.

EXCHANGEABLE WORKING SECTIONS

Adjusting soil cultivation to the needs of the crop.

A sweep working section (summer and autumn soil cultivation – winter cereals, oilseed rape)

This working section can be used for summer and autumn preparation when soil needs to be loosened, undercut and mixed after the previous harvest. The 270 mm sweeps in two overlapping rows undercut the soil profile along the entire machine width, creating a firm bottom. At the same time, soil is aggressively processed thanks to the working angle of the sweeps, creating a loosening top layer. Each sweep is mounted on a flexible tine that provides a 3D effect (horizontal and vertical movement) which protects the sweep from damage.

SB sweep section with spring sweeps (spring soil cultivation – sugar beet)

The section is especially suitable for spring cultivation before seeding sugar beet where it is required to adequately manage spring moisture, but still prepare a precise seedbed. The sweep angle does not mix soil vertically, but the soil is still undercut in the whole area thanks to the overlapping sweeps that are 170 mm wide. Another benefit is the reduced demand on the towing vehicle power.

Gamma-point working section (spring soil cultivation – spring cereals, corn)

This section is suitable for early spring operations, such as required before seeding barley. The four rows of gamma points at a negative angle aerate and warm up soil without bringing wet particles to the surface, which preserves winter moisture. It is important for a fast start of growth of spring crop. The spring-loading of each tine enables working at high speed. The gamma points for this section are also available in the LONG LIFE version.

WAVE-FLEX SYSTEM

Maintains even cultivation depth along the entire machine width.

The Wave-Flex system means that the individual sections (width of 2 or 3 metres) are independently suspended on the side frames using the towing arms in the front and tracing arms in the rear. The system helps maintain the set working depth. The soil profile is evenly cultivated along the entire working width.

PROVEN DESIGN

Do not lose time, work at headland without having to lift the machine.

The design of the SWIFTER SE cultivator enables turning the machine at headland without having to lift the working sections. Even so, we recommend turning on the headland with slightly excavated working sections and a larger turning radius. The telescopic connecting rods stabilize the side frames not only when turning, but also at higher working speed.

PROVĚŘENÁ KONSTRUKCE
FORWARD FOLDING OF SIDE FRAMES

Smart folding for safe transport.

The SWIFTER SE wide cultivator can be easily folded into the transport position from the tractor cabin. The fully hydraulic folding of the working sections forward to the drawbar provides compact transport dimensions of up to 3 metres of transport width, required for transport on roads in EU countries.

Drawbar

The long drawbar safely folds the side frames forward.

Tractor track cultivators

Used for loosening hardened tractor tracks.

Front leveller

The hydraulically controlled Crushbar is used for levelling unevenness and breaking the rough furrow.

Front crumbling roller

Provides initial crumbling of larger soil particles and clods.

Working section

A selection of three different versions (2 rows of sweeps/ 4 rows of gamma points / 2 rows of SB sweeps) as needed for soil cultivation for the crop.

Levelling bar after sweeps

It levels off the soil surface after the sweep or gamma-point section.

Rear rollers

The double-row crosskill rollers contribute to perfect crumbling of clods created by the sweep or gamma-point section.

Rear equipment

The finish roller creates a fine soil structure and completes the entire operation.

Support wheels

Used for stabilizing the side frames and provide perfect tracing of terrain unevenness.

OUR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

COMPRESSING SPRING

Most seedbed cultivators equipped with crosskill rollers incur slackness between the individual crosskill segments after working for some number of hectares. We use a compressing spring in SWIFTER cultivators, mounted on the shaft where the crosskill rollers are as well. The spring continuously presses on the crosskill segments and eliminates slackness between the individual segments.

STLAČOVACÍ PRUŽINA

CRUSHBAR LEVELLER

The front hydraulic Crushbar leveller allows the operator to ideally adjust the working angle of the leveller according to the field conditions in the comfort of the cabin. When compared with a mechanically controlled leveller, it is possible to achieve savings of up to 1 litre of Diesel per hectare.

CRUSHBAR LEVELLER

FLOATING FRAME MOUNTING

The floating mounting of the side frames allows tracing terrain unevenness (swinging +/- 20 cm from the horizontal plane at the ends of the side frames).

WAVE-FLEX_System

SLATTED ROLLER WITH A REPLACEABLE PIN

The slatted roller with a diameter of 370 mm and with a replaceable pin consists of a casing with an internal cone and a pin with an external cone. When the pin is damaged, it is not required to replace the whole slatted roller, but only the pin.

LIŠTOVÝ VÁLEC S VYMĚNITELNÝM ČEPEM

MAINTENANCE-FREE BEARINGS

Roller bearings are adjusted to the high circumferential speed and are maintenance-free. The operator thus does not have to regularly lubricate each bearing, which there are many on a seedbed cultivator. Multiple gaskets prevent contamination of the bearing and the reinforced gasket design reduces its damage.

MAINTENANCE-FREE BEARINGS

WHAT DO THE FARMERS HAVE TO SAY?

“The BEDNAR seedbed cultivator works perfectly in our conditions, the fields are prepared as well as gardens, and I can only recommend the machine. BEDNAR SWIFTER SE 8000 processes about 40 to 50 ha per day, but it all depends on the number of passes and size of the fields. Soil is cultivated at a depth of 8 cm and the set travels at a speed of around 12 km/h.”

Rear rollers

Double-row crosskill rollers with a diameter of 350 mm for rocky soils

An ideal design for all types of soil with rocks. The large spacing between rows prevents rocks from getting stuck and blocking the rollers. The universal frame enables increasing the spacing between the rows of rollers – a smaller distance provides a self-cleaning effect even in wet conditions, a larger distance provides a sufficient space in rocky soils.

AGRONOMICAL GUIDE

SEEDBED CULTIVATION
Soil preparation is an important operation for the formation of a uniform and balanced seedbed prior to crop establishment. Each crop and field requires different soil preparation based on the climate, or the chosen date of cultivation. The aim of the seedbed cultivation is to create an ideal soil structure in the field, with a harder bottom and loose top soil layer, to level the field after previous operations, and to open, warm up and aerate the soil profile for even crop emergence.
