SWIFTER SO_PROFI

A professional seedbed cultivator for seedbed preparation in one pass.

A PROFESSIONAL SEEDBED CULTIVATOR

Quality small-seed crop establishment requires a perfectly prepared seedbed. SWIFTER SO_PROFI is a modern seedbed cultivator that is able to prepare the field in one pass, thanks to the combination of up to eight operations in one pass. The innovative design of side frame spring-loading lets you work with the cultivator at higher speed, achieving a better crumbling and levelling effect. SWIFTER SO_PROFI is a cultivator that can be used in any season because it is easily adjusted to the conditions thanks to the exchangeable working parts.

Key properties

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

PROFESSIONAL VERSION OF THE SEEDBED CULTIVATOR

For more frequent use in heavy conditions.

SWIFTER SO_PROFI is the top machine in semi-mounted seedbed cultivators available on the market. We have developed some interesting devices for the SWIFTER cultivator over the course of time. For example, there is the spring-loading of the side frames with a coil spring, the option of using a third crosskill roller after the rear rollers, or the front slatted roller with a replaceable pin.

SWIFTER SO_F
UP TO 8 OPERATIONS IN ONE PASS

Creating a seedbed for proper and even crop emergence.

Combining several operations into one means fewer passes over 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 machine can be equipped with a third crosskill roller with a large specific weight installed after the double crosskill rollers to achieve the maximum crumbling effect and fine structure of the cultivated field.

UP TO 8 OPERATIONS IN ONE PASS
SPRING-LOADING OF THE SIDE FRAMES

Enables the cultivator to work at a speed of up to 15 km/h.

The SWIFTER SO_PROFI cultivator has both side frames spring-loaded with a coil spring. This interesting design contributes to even weight distribution and above all absorbs shocks that are not transferred to the central supporting frame. The spring-loading of the side frames thus contributes to achieving higher working speed and machine durability, together with maintaining a constant working depth. Moreover, the spring-loading of the frames does not require any adjustments – it is a user-friendly and a trouble-free design.

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 over 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.

THIRD CROSSKILL ROLLER

For the perfect final soil structure.

When compared with competitive machines, SWIFTER SO_PROFI offers the widest range of rear equipment, including the levelling bar, harrow, finish roller or the third crosskill roller. The last crosskill roller has a diameter of 350 mm and creates the perfect soil structure, namely in difficult conditions.

THIRD CROSSKILL ROLLER
SPACIOUS FRAME

Even weight distribution brings higher durability.

The side frames with individual working sections are suspended on a robust spacious frame. The supporting frame has a higher durability because the weight of the side frame is evenly distributed. The placement of the transport axle also contributes to that as it has a low centre of gravity, unlike competitive machines.

SPACIOUS FRAME
COMBINATION WITH FERTILIZER HOPPERS

Two operations in one pass save your time and money.

Every pass across the field is important in seedbed preparation to prevent soil compaction. Also, it is essential to provide soil with nutrients in organic or mineral form. An interesting solution can be the set consisting of the front FERTI-BOX FB_F hopper with the SWIFTER SO_PROFI seedbed cultivator. In one pass, you can deliver essential nutrients to the soil, and moreover, incorporate them in a way that prevents their loss. A design that does not only save time, but above all your money!

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.

Rear rollers

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

Rear equipment

The third finish roller creates the final fine soil structure and completes the entire operation with compaction.

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

COIL SPRING FRAME SUSPENSION

The side frames of the machine are spring-loaded with coil springs. All the shocks directed at the main frame of the machine, or the tractor, are absorbed by the springs.

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

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.

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?

“We stopped using the original cultivator a long time ago because it created a lot of clods, and we started using a SWIFTER. Moreover, when we had a SWIFTER here for testing, nothing else worked for the clods because it was extremely dry. The soil here is rocky and it is far from light in many places. A great advantage is that I do not have to level the field twice in these extreme conditions. The machine perfectly levels the field at a speed of 12 km/h, and there is no need to do another pass. I can do almost 45 ha per day.”

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.
