At SIMA 2019 Kongskilde presents the ploughs XRWT 6980 & MRS 4975 for wide furrow ploughing and a new Side Mounted CombiWheel for improved weed control
Kongskilde ploughs are designed to offer farmers quality ploughing results, easy operation and advantageous operational economy. All this is built upon many generations of experience in developing ploughs. This places Kongskilde ploughs in a league of their own. Heavy duty dimensioning and high-quality material ensures a long service life!
Kongskilde offers a wide range of fully mounted reversible ploughs, semi-mounted reversible ploughs and on-land ploughs. A number of plough bodies are available for almost all ploughing conditions, including the new XLD plough body or the XSD slatted body for wide furrows and deep ploughing, or the AX body with the lowest draft requirement on the market.
Kongskilde is introducing the new Side Mounted CombiWheel developed to extend its wheel offering for the heavy-duty ploughs. The new wheel has the advantage of working inside the furrow already at a ploughing width of 40 cm, leaving no unploughed soil at the headland, resulting in improved weed control.
Kongskilde ploughs can be equipped with the hydraulic stone release system for efficient non-stop ploughing in areas with many stones. Each plough body can be adjusted individually. The hydraulic stone release pressure for first furrow plough body can be individually adjusted separate to the other plough body’s, – meaning the pressure can be set higher for the front furrow to keep it in the soil without exposing the plough or the tractor to higher loads.
All Kongskilde ploughs are manufactured in Överum, Sweden. The factory has been a leader in industrial production and processing of steel for more than 360 years. The finishing of the steel has always been a core competence, including processing of the mould boards made of carbonized hardened steel.
Among mechanical weed cultivation solutions, the plough has through centuries been acknowledged to be the most reliable machine for cultivation. Threats of herbicide resistant weeds getting more and more abundant is forcing today’s farmer to rearm and again choose the plough as key strategy for weed control as last resort. A Kongskilde plough requires less energy than a tine cultivator considering the cultivated volume of soil, due to the geometry of the plough body.
The Kongskilde ploughs offer features like:
- XLD – the new generation of plough bodies with excellent turning for wide-furrow ploughing and plough depths of 12-30 cm
- New slatted plough body for all soil types, particularly impressive in sticky soil
- Type AX plough body with an extremely low draft requirement
- A new lighter and stronger modular frame tube design for the medium range of ploughs – made out of one piece, without weldings
- Manufactured for more than 165 years in Småland, Sweden, using the highest standards within materials, for instance the frames are manufactured from 100% Swedish quality steel
The XRWT 6980 is a 6 furrow reversible fully mounted plough with hydraulic operated working width. The point to point clearance is 90 cm, and the under-beam clearance is 80 cm.
The Kongskilde XRWT range represents the heavy-duty class of fully mounted reversible ploughs for tractors up to 300 hp. Kongskilde XRWT range consists of models from four to six furrows, with fully automatic hydraulic stone release system.
The new Side Mounted CombiWheel extend the wheel offerings for the heavy-duty ploughs. The new wheel has the advantage of working inside the furrow already at a ploughing width of 40 cm, leaving no unploughed soil at the headland, resulting in improved weed control.
The shift from road transport to ploughing position with the Side Mounted CombiWheel is done without any special tools. You just need to pull out one pin, move the wheel slightly to the side and put the pin back, quick and effective.
The Side Mounted CombiWheel also have hydraulic depth control for easy adjustment of ploughing depth during ploughing. Thanks the big tire, dimension 11,5/80-15,3 and a diameter of 87 cm, the wheel always keeps rolling and never blocks.
The sturdy main frame on the XRWT has dimensions of 220 x 120 mm, suitable for a plough which is designed for tough ploughing conditions.
The range of ploughs is also available with shear bolt stone release system, version XRWS.
The MRS 4975 is a 4-furrow reversible fully mounted plough with shear bolt stone release system. The point to point clearance is 90 cm, and the under-beam clearance is 75 cm.
The Kongskilde MRS ploughs feature a modular designed beam support and draw frame allowing all the stress to be evenly distributed over the full length of the plough. The result is a simple strong and clean design with logical and easy adjustment.
The Kongskilde MRS ploughs are manufactured from high quality steel for strength and reliability to work in the toughest conditions. 90 or 100 cm clearance between plough bodies and generous under beam clearance allow space for effective skimmers to give good weed control.
The range of ploughs is also available with fully automatic hydraulic stone release system, version MRT.
