The Kverneland Turbo is Back!

Kverneland Turbo is reintroduced after several years as a trailed version in 6,5m and 8m. It has been designed for soil cultivation up to 15cm deep such as reopening the soil after the winter time, seedbed preparation or for Summer/Autumn stubble operations.

3 working zones
First, the Kverneland Turbo has 5 rows of tines to avoid any blockages with the biggest amount of residues such as sunflower, oil seed rape, maize, etc… The long distance between the tine rows varies between 510 and 900mm to get the optimum soil flow around the wheels. Secondly, the tines are followed by levelling tines to close the furrow made by the last rows of S-tines. Finally, the Kverneland Turbo can get the most active rollers in the range such as Actipack 560mm, Actiflex 580mm or Actiring 540mm.

High vibration and narrow spacing for high crumbling effect
The S-tine is benefitting of a high vibration effect: the large coil and the high tine clearance of 700mm gives a high flexibility while ensuring a high vibration to crack the clods. The narrow tine spacing is made for an active crumbling and nice levelling. In addition, the pressure applied on the coil is reduced to extend the life time. The tine can get 3 different shares:

  • 55x15mm for deep cultivation, low disturbance, and low fuel consumption. It is mostly used to open the soil in spring time

  • Double heart share 125mm (reversible) for intensive mixing.

  • Share 55x15 Double heart share 125mm

Strong and robust frame
The frame has been performed by FEM (Finite Element Method) calculation to comply with the highest lateral and longitudinal forces, but also to get the heaviest roller like the Actipack roller.

The machines can get hydraulic or pneumatic brakes to ensure safe transports on the road.

High stability at work
To follow the ground contour, the machine is equipped as standard with 4 depth wheels in front. Then, the 3 sections act independently from each other. This gives a really high stability to the machine. The rear depth control is ensured by the roller.

And in transport…
The transport width doesn’t exceed 3m on road.
