To help expand the working spectrum of the wedge ring roller, Amazone has developed a version with a new Matrix tyre profile. The special feature of this roller is the specific longitudinal and lateral profiles of the Matrix tyres.
Amazone says that the longitudinal profile of the tyre creates the desired strip-wise reconsolidation of the soil, meaning the narrow cross bars on the profile provide more fine soil, resulting in optimum growing conditions.
When attached as the following roller on the rear of the Certos TX heavy compact disc harrow or the Cenius TX mulch cultivator, the new roller offers several advantages. The combination of this new profile and the 650 mm diameter tyres, reduces the rolling resistance and thus the pulling power required in the field. The intensified adherence of the tyre profile with the soil results in an improved self-driving effect for the roller that again reduces pulling power as well as fuel consumption.
