Hydraulic Land Wheel for Kongskilde Ploughs
At SIMA 2017, Kongskilde Agriculture launches two features for the fully mounted ploughs. The hydraulic lifting system for land wheels improves the work performance and eases the operation. It also comes in a version with tractor patterned tyres. The upgrades are available from June 2017.
Kongskilde Agriculture has developed a new hydraulic lifting system for their combi and pendulum wheels on a selected range of their fully mounted ploughs. The hydraulic lifting system meets a request for more comfort and improved performance, especially on headlands, due to changing conditions during ploughing.
Improved operator comfort and finish
The hydraulic lifting of the land wheel is an add-on feature that can replace the manually adjustable land wheel. It allows the operator to continually adjust the working depth of the plough during operation when required by changing conditions in the field. A further advantage is the even finish on headlands achieved by lowering and lifting the plough. Ploughing can be completed without leaving big furrows.
“The operator can adjust the ploughing depth on the go, enabling him to leave a perfect and even surface for the next operation,” says Søren Thomasen, Group Product Manager at Kongskilde Agriculture.
Version with less rolling resistance
The hydraulic land wheel comes in a version with tractor patterned tyres for reduced rolling resistance. The pattern avoids blockages, even in the toughest conditions with field residues and loose soil. Tractor patterned tyres will also be available for combi and pendulum wheels without the hydraulic feature.
Availability from June 2017
All new Kongskilde XRWT and XRT ploughs can be equipped with the hydraulic lifting version of the combi wheel. The pendulum wheel in the hydraulic lifting system will be available for the Kongskilde MRT, MRWT and HRWT versions.
The tractor patterned wheel is launched as optional equipment for the Kongskilde XRWT and XRT range of ploughs, ordered with combi wheel.
