Kverneland re-introduces the trailed cultivator Kverneland Turbo in working width of 6.5m and 8m.
The Kverneland Turbo has been designed with 5 rows of tines for all kind of soil cultivation: stubble cultivation after harvesting from 3cm to 15cm, seedbed preparation after ploughing and also shallow working in spring or 2nd stubble cultivation after manure/slurry and after green fertiliser crops.

The Kverneland Turbo has 5 rows of tines to avoid any blockages in case of high 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.
The tines are followed by levelling tines to close the furrow made by the last rows of S-tines.
The Kverneland Turbo is available with a choice of active rollers such as Actipack 560mm, Actiflex 580mm or Actiring 540mm.
The S-tine benefits from a strong vibration effect: the large coil and the high tine clearance of 700mm ensures robust flexibility whilst ensuring a powerful vibration for cracking the clods.
The narrow tine spacing is made for an active crumbling and even levelling. In addition, the pressure applied to the coil is reduced extending durability.
The tine can be equipped with 2 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.
The frame has been performed by FEM (Finite Element Method) calculation to comply with the highest lateral and longitudinal forces. It has been designed for tractors up to 450 hp but also to be equipped with the heaviest roller like the Actipack roller.
To reach a perfect levelled surface, the Turbo has levelling tines to bury the furrow made by the last row of tines. The angle can be adjusted at any time according to the working depth.
There is a full range of levelling equipment and rear rollers available:
Cage roller ø 550mm - 90 kg/m
Double cage roller ø 400mm (tube/flat) - 160 kg/m
Actipack ø 560mm - 220 kg/m
Actiring ø 540mm - 160 kg/m
Actiflex roller ø 580mm - 160 kg/m
4 front wheels and the rear roller ensure a perfect depth control of the machine whatever the soil profile is. In this way, the machine is able to work with an accurate working depth from 3 to 15 cm.
The conception of the frame and the position of the wheels have been designed to ensure a constantly positive load on the drawbar. So even when turning on the headland and reversing with the machine, there is a positive weight on the drawbar.
For safe transport, the Turbo can be equipped with hydraulic or pneumatic brakes. The transport width does not exceed 3m even with the wider version of 8m. Homologation at 40km/h are in process for Germany.
