The Kverneland Turbo T i-Tiller has been designed to provide the best working quality with the highest output, whilst ensuring the lowest costs of operation. For that reason, the depth- and levelling adjustments are directly controlled from the tractor cab by the ISOBUS terminal.
The working depth and the height of the levelling equipment are easily adjusted by pressing a button on the terminal. Automatically the Smart System of the Turbo T i-Tiller starts to set up all hydraulic cylinders! A front/rear depth adjustment can be done at any time and on the move depending on soil conditions.
The On-The-Go Dynamic Traction Control transfers weight from the front gauge wheels to the tractor coupling in order to give more grip and traction to the tractor. In hilly conditions, the pressure is constantly adjusted to maintain always the selected pressure. The result is less fuel consumption, less wearing of the tires by slipping control and a better soil structure by avoiding compactions.
The overload protection system Auto-Protect reacts on obstacles or lateral forces (right/left or both together). The Smart System lifts up the machine if values excess a specific significant level e.g. if the operator misjudges the affected forces on the machine or misuses it by turning the machine without lifting or over reaching the highest pulling force. This guarantees a longer lifetime and a better second hand value.

3 steps to get a fine seedbed ready
Advanced testing program
Before the Turbo was launched into the market, it had passed a whole series of tests to ensure the impeccable quality of the product.
• Sophisticated technologies are used for each development such as static load test, finite elements method (FEM) and shake-lifetime tests.
• Finally the machines are tested in the field under different conditions to reconfirm that the requirements to all functions and strength are met. A strict LOR is defined to meet all kind of soil conditions.
The frame is a result of a long study made by FEM (Finite Element Method) calculation to optimise the steel over the working width and proposing a strong structure able to resist to tractors up to 450hp for the trailed model, up to 300hp for the Turbo F and up to 175hp for the rigid frame.
The complete Turbo range has been designed to be combined with the Actipack roller, which is the heaviest roller in the range. All the most agressive scenarios (deep working when turning, headland turns, transport tests, ...) have been considered to make the different frames as strong as possible and thus guaranteeing the proven Kverneland quality.
High vibration for intensive mixing and crumbling
Reflex tine: versatile for all conditions
The Reflex tine benefits from high vibration effect: the large coil and the high tine clearance of 725mm gives a high flexibility whilst ensuring a high vibration effect to crack the clods and mix the soil. The working depth of the share stays even when the tine release to the back thanks to its stable design. The narrow tine spacing ensures active crumbling and perfect levelling. Thus the pressure applied on the coil is reduced to extend its life time.
The Reflex tine is the perfect solution for using the Turbo in first/second stubble pass or for seedbed preparation. Also for the incorporation of slurry or manure the Reflex tine is the best choice. To make it even more versatile three different shares are available
For stony condition and high penetration
Triflex tine 400: High stability at deep operations
The auto-reset Triflex tine 400 uses the well known Kverneland leaf spring system to ensure a high point pressure of 400kg in work and a smooth release curve when the tine hits an obstacle. The Triflex tine 400 with narrow design and special shape reduces the pulling forces while ensuring a perfect penetration in most compacted soil. It is the perfect choice for deep loosening and working on heavier soil types strewn with stones.
The Triflex tine 400 can be equipped with different shares to adapt to different working depths and tasks. 3 types of shares are available with the patented Knock-on® system. It is the easiest way of changing parts on a cultivator, either to adapt the machine to the job to be done or to change wearing parts.
Leaving an even surface
In order to create an even surface for a fine seedbed, Kverneland offers various options of levelling tools for the Turbo.
There are levelling tines which are a very easy and economic way of levelling and to handle normal straw conditions on light to medium soil types.
When it comes to heavy amounts of residues and also more clay or loamy soils the levelling discs are more suitable.
Both versions are overload protected by a spring to avoid damages in stony or other difficult conditions. Individual springs ensure individual release of tines or discs and keep levelling quality even in stony conditions. The pressure on this spring and also the angle of the levelling discs/tines can be adjusted for a perfect results.
To respect the transport width on the Turbo mounted versions with 3.00 and 3.50m working width the outer tines/discs can be hydraulically or mechanically folded in.
A rear triple finger harrow provides levelling and controls weed development by pulling the weeds out of the ground so that the roots dry out in the sun. This is particularly interesting with rhizome and other weeds that could start growing again if they are pressed by a packer immediately after cultivation. Gauge wheels control the working depth of the machine. The triple finger harrow can be adjusted mechanically and the hydraulic pressure via the parallelogram.
There is a full range of levelling equipment and rear rollers available:
Actipress Twin ø 565mm - 220kg/m without soil
Cage roller ø 550mm - 90kg/m
Double cage roller ø 400mm (tube/flat) - 160 kg/m
Actipack ø 560mm - 205kg/m
Actiring ø 540mm - 160kg/m
Easy conversion from working to transport position.
The three-part hydraulic folding gives a transport width of 3.00m and ensures smooth running and safe road transport.
The Turbo T models are EU homologated at 40km/h with pneumatic brakes. A national homologation (25km/h) with hydraulic brake is also available for specific countries.
