The Versatill from Ovlac, designed as a 3 in 1 cultivator, suitable for stubble as well as pan eradication was in action at this year’s Tillage-Live.
With the ability to perform three tasks in one pass, it has three rows of solid shanks (87cm under beam clearance-78cm between rows) which gives it the ability to handle large amounts of stubble under virtually all conditions. The high twisted guide board (RH and LH) mix and incorporate all trash.
A gang of independently-mounted notched discs then mulch and leave a level seedbed.
Lastly, a wide range of rollers to choose from assures a correct depth control as well as an optimum finish and consolidation. Halse say it performs extremely well working anywhere from 2-14inchs.
The detachable wearing parts components on the tines, make it possible to work with wing parts or without them. The first case would be suitable for perfect stubble incorporation, as the total machine working width is covered. These side wings (RH and LH) can also be taken off in order to go to 35cm deep.
Both the leaf spring shank and assembly as well as the hydraulic option have been designed to offer an initial trip –out force of 670kgs, which result in effective penetration while always keeping the right angle when working. The tine will trip out when an obstacle places 670kg force on the point in order to clear the obstacle. The tripping force will then drop, gradually tapering off at 450kg at its maximum tip height.
The hydraulic version allows the setting of its trip-out force according to soil conditions; increasing it under difficult circumstances and decreasing it when ,for example not wanting stones to come to the surface.
Ovlac’s Product range has been expanded with the introduction of the Semi mounted Plough range into the UK.
On-land and in-furrow, Mono wheel reversible semi mounted ploughs up to 9 bodies, point to point clearance of 105cm, with the choice of 72,78 and 90cm underbeam offer excellent trash clearance.
The biggest of its class. One-wheel reversible semi mounted ploughs with three different protection systems to choose from, Shear bolt, Leaf spring and hydraulic. All of them can also be specified with either hydraulically adjustable working width, or manually adjustable working width in 4 positions. Depth and first body width can also be hydraulically adjusted. Electro-valves are also an option.
8mm case hardened mouldboards
Featured throughout Ovlac’s plough range are the 8mm case hardened mouldboards. The case hardening process gives the mouldboard increased strength and extended life. The number ‘56’ wide tyre mouldboard has been the popular choice on the mounted plough range and we are expecting the same on the semi mounted range, where a 710mm wide tyre fits comfortably when ploughing in furrow with excellent inversion. Double mouldboard support stays are fitted as standard due to the board’s length. A variety of other mouldboard’s are available to suit soil conditions including plastic and slatted.
