Kverneland LO

High performance plough

On-land & In-furrow 

4 - 7 furrows

High output and low maintenance costs 

Designed for In Furrow and On Land operations, the LO are robust ploughs requiring lower lift requirements than other brands. The 300 heavy duty head stock provides the necessary strength for smooth reversing. The Kverneland unique steels and the heat treatment of the complete plough guarantee the longevity.

In its on-land configuration the plough’s massive offset (adjustable up to 3.4 – 3.7 m, depending on furrow width and interbody clearance) allows the tractor to be positioned exactly to the drivers’ requirements.

Advantages:

  • simple conversion from In furrow to On land operations. The driver has fingertip control
  • low lift requirements thanks to Kverneland steels and to the ingenious design
  • easy and smooth turnover action thanks to an efficient parallel linkage system which hydraulically moves the plough into a balanced position
  • ideal for tractors having dual wheels or rubber tracks
  • increase output, save time, fuel and money with the Vari-width® for infinite hydraulic furrow width adjustments or manual adjustments in steps of 5cm (2")
  • shearbolt protection
  • wide range of accessories 
  • all models can be extended by 1 furrow, max. 7 furrow plough

Unique frame robustness LO

Importance of heat treatment

  • The frame is an essential part of the plough construction. For Kverneland quality standards, a non heat treated part is a weak part!
  • Kverneland frames are heat treated by induction twice. The temperature transfer to the steel is closely monitored. The frame gains 3 times as much strength. This unique Kverneland induction processes provides robustness and flexibility while ensuring an outstanding durability.

Stronger but not heavier

  • For the equivalent Kverneland robustness, competitors would use more steel in thickness or in dimensions, therefore producing a heavier frame.
  • Heavier frame impacts negatively pulling forces, wearing of parts, lifting capacities, tractor life time, and fuel consumption.

Long lasting

  • Weldings are also a critical weakness for a plough frame. Kverneland frames are supplied as one sole part!

Frame availability

  • 120 x 200mm with head stock 300
  • available in 4 to 7 furrows, extendable by 1 furrow max. 7 F ploughs  

Vari-Width® (Variomat) System

Stepless Vari-width® system for infinite adjustments of working width. Kverneland’s world patented system is available either with hydraulic or mechanical furrow adjustments.

Benefits:

  • Easy variation of ploughing capacity
  • Perfect match at all time between tractor capacity, implement and soil conditions
  • Time saving: up to 30% more capacity
  • Cost saving: up to 18% reduction in fuel consumption in relation with increased ploughing capacity
  • Better work: plough up to the hedges, fences, trees and ditches
  • Minimum wear: unique non-wearing linkage joint between the beams and the mainframe section
  • Perfect line of pull at all time. Kverneland’s Vari-width offers the correct parallel linkage along the whole plough. Therefore, lower draft requirement, minimum wear and tear.

 

Shearbolt leg protections

Robust legs with 80cm underbeam clearance.
Ideal leg protections for light to the heaviest soils without stones.
Shearbolt protections with 4200 kp release force.

Plough Bodies

Excellent Ploughing Quality

They are renowned all over the world for their:

  • excellent ploughing quality
  • outstanding wear resistance
  • low draft requirements

Bodies of a unique steel.

Heat Treatment

Kverneland Heat Treatment Technology:

  • more than 140 years of experience
  • steels that withstand the toughest of conditions
  • best robustness/weight ratio on the market
  • for equivalent robustness, competitors would add more steel and therefore more weight, quicker wear, dissappointing ploughing results

Kverneland Steels:

  • Benefits from less weight:
    easier to pull/lower fuel consumption/lower lift requirement/reduced wear and stress for the tractor/more economical …
  • Benefits from more resistance:
    minimum breakage/less maintenance/lower rotation for wearing parts/time saving/highest 2nd hand plough value/longer life for the plough/more economical…

Problems always happen when the plough is being used, when the work must be done!

A Kverneland plough is a peace mind!
