SWIFTER SN

A mounted seedbed cultivator for seedbed preparation in one pass

A MOUNTED SEEDBED CULTIVATOR SUITABLE FOR SMALLER FARMERS

The low towing demands make the SWIFTER SN mounted seedbed cultivator suitable for aggregation with lower power tractors, which are often used by smaller farmers. The working width of these cultivators ranges from 3 to 5 metres. The effective combination of working parts provides intense levelling, mixing, clod crumbling and final field surface levelling. In one pass, you can prepare the perfect seedbed and thus achieve savings in the total costs.

Key properties

A mounted seedbed cultivator suitable for traditional soil cultivation before seeding.

UP TO 7 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 perfectly levels any unevenness. The front 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.

UP TO 7 OPERATIONS IN ONE PASS
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 the 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.

WORKING DEPTH REGULATION

Mechanical or easy hydraulic regulation.

Even the smallest models of the SWIFTER SN mounted seedbed cultivators are easily controllable. You can choose from mechanical regulation of the working depth, or comfortable hydraulic regulation.

REGULACE PRACOVNÍ HLOUBKY
FOLDING ARRANGEMENT

For models with a width of 4 and 5 metres.

The width of the machine is a limiting factor for transportation on roads in the European Union. Therefore, the SWIFTER SN 4000 and 5000 are manufactured in the folding version to ensure safe transport. The centre of gravity of the cultivator is moved as close to the tractor hitch as possible, so the set is stable even at high transport speed.

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

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?

“To be able to influence the yield of the grown crops as early as during the first soil cultivation, we have to use quality machines that make it possible. Therefore, I decided to purchase the SWIFTER SN seedbed cultivator so that I can prepare a quality seedbed in one pass. Yes, someone might object that I only need a simple and cheap harrow for 45 hectares, but every good farmer knows that a quality seedbed is essential for good seed emergence, and I am also aware of that, that is why I chose BEDNAR.”

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.
