CTC - Frame

  • The CTC can be equipped with 3 rows of tines with 270mm spacing ensuring optimum mixing and intensive cultivation.
  • A maximum working depth of 30cm is possible
  • The wing shares, when fitted, ensure that the entire working width of the machine is cultivated even when the machine is adjusted for shallow work.
  • The high inter-row clearance up to a maximum of 150cm and the underbeam clearance of 87cm ensure blockage-free operation under any conditions.
  • The outer wings are pre-loaded by hydraulic accumulators and can be adjusted to suit the various field conditions

CTC - Tines and Shares

  • The unique and robust design of the tines incorporates a special, heat treated hollow “C” profile.
  • The heat treatment is of the same standards as the beams on the Kverneland ploughs.
  • For lighter conditions, Kverneland offer the "C" tine with shearbolt overload protection releasing from 2 tons.
  • The Kverneland "C" tine equipped with the "Auto-reset" leaf spring safety system is the perfect choice for hard and stony conditions.
  • The auto-reset tine leg can withstand sideway movements of up to 20cm. This means lower stress to the tine holder and frame structure.

Tines can be combined with a variety of share systems allowing working depths between 5cm and 30cm.

  • The "C"-tine: with the standard reversible plough point made of high quality steel for maximum service life. This allows the CTC to work at great depths even in stony soil - eliminating plough pans and in this way encouraging natural drainage.
  • For stubble cultivation the "C" tine can be equipped with 30cm wing shares.
  • New Quantum share 345mm - always in combination with Knock-on® or Tiger carbide point 80mm. It has been designed for use especially in hard soil. The 80mm point combined with the 345mm wing share ensures perfect penetration and complete flat cutting for a homogeneous weed regrowth.
  • Two types of carbide points – 80mm and 150mm Tiger point. The special design ensures progressive and high penetration and requires low pulling force. The special shape of the carbide plate resist against aggressive stony conditions. All points available with Knock-on® deflectors too
  • The "C"-tine system is maintenance-free.

CTC - Front disc system

Kverneland has developed a front disc system to cut or incorporate crop residues in front of the cultivator tines.

The disc system has central screw depth adjustment and individual rubber disc protection. This overload system allows the disc to follow the ground contour very well.
As the working depth of the disc section is limited to 5cm, the required pulling force is insignificantly low.

Front Mixing Disc (FMD)

The front mixing disc (FMD) option is the ideal equipment that avoid any boiling effect in front of the tine especially with short wheat straw. The FMD system has notched hollow discs which are ideal when working in high amounts of crop residues. The FMD system pre-mixes any straw standing on the top of the stubble to ensure thorough mixing by the stubbling tines for improved incorporation.

Front Cutting Disc (FCD)

The FCD system has notched straight discs which are mounted in front of the first row of tines. The FCD system is ideal when working in maize straw for example, where the disc is cutting the straw directly in front of the tines. The straw is cut to improve the flow of material and prevent the machine from blocking.

CTC - Rear Accessories

There is a full range of levelling equipment and rear rollers available for CTC

Levelling discs:

  • Rubber spring loaded, to follow the ground and protect against stones
  • Border discs as standard

Levelling tines

  • Good levelling capacity and good following of the ground contour

Combi disc harrow:

  • Combination of a single disc gang with all roller type
  • Hydraulic depth adjustment by spacers
  • Adjustable angle depending of the mixing intensity required

Cage roller Ø 550mm - 90 kg/m

  • 10 bars for a good loading  capacity and operation in wet conditions
  • Effective crumbling action

Double cage roller Ø 400mm (tube/flat) - 160 kg/m

  • Good crumbling
  • Precise depth control

Actipack Ø 560mm - 220kg/m

  • The Kverneland Actipack roller displays its superb working qualities especially on medium to heavy soils and also in wet, stony and sticky conditions thanks to the independent skids and knives.
  • The cutting discs break the larger clods whilst the adjustable knives cut the remaining clods resulting in optimal clod breakdown and fine seedbed preparation

Actiring Ø 540mm - 160 kg/m

  • The Actiring roller is a lighter variant of the Actipack, using the same frame structure and knife system.
  • The discs have been replaced by a “V” profile ring, this is saving 60kg/m, which is of critical importance for reducing lifting requirements for mounted equipment.
  • Actiring is not recommended in stony conditions

Actiflex roller Ø  580mm - 160 kg/m

  • The Actiflex roller has been made to create an intensive mixing under all conditions, even stony ones
  • The rings are made of spring steel to have a high resistance agains stress at high speed
  • Actiflex rings are separated by skids to prevent any accumulation inside the roller
  • This roller is the ideal tool to create a nice seedbed and enhance the weeds' regrowth after harvesting
