The following harrow tines, fitted to multiple Väderstad machinery, are upgraded with a long-life alternative. By strengthening the following harrow tine with hard metal at the critical point of wear, the working lifetime of the tool is substantially increased.
“To finish the seedbed preparation, the vibrating following harrow tines create an evaporation barrier whilst sorting larger aggregates and weeds to the surface”, says Magnus Samuelsson, concept developer at Väderstad.
“Comparing the new following harrow Marathon to the standard following harrow, demonstrates a prolonged lifetime in the field of up to 6 times. Since the length of the tine remains constant it maintains its same vibrating, and therefore, soil sorting capabilities. The initial set angle also stays the same, guaranteeing a perfect working result year after year, maximizing value adding time.”
The following harrow Marathon tines can be fitted to the Väderstad harrows NZ Mounted, NZ Aggressive, NZ Extreme, the seed drills Rapid and Spirit as well as the Carrier and Swift cultivators. It is also available to retrofit to existing machines.
The new following harrow Marathon tine is available as an aftermarket upgrade to new and existing Väderstad machines from January 2024.
