Lightweight plough completes blue plough range

  • Lemken Jewel 6 to replace the EurOpal and VariOpal 5 and 6 ranges

With the Juwel 6, LEMKEN is now introducing the little brother of the Juwel 7, 8 and 10 mounted reversible ploughs. From next year, this particularly low-draught model will replace the EurOpal and VariOpal 5 and 6 ranges, which for 25 years have been trusted companions for farmers who value good work results and durability.

The new Juwel 6 with a 110 mm frame box section and an underframe clearance of 80 cm is available in versions with three to five furrows. The M version offers four different working widths per body which can be adjusted mechanically. The Juwel 6 M V features an infinitely variable hydraulic working width adjustment and hydraulic frame swivelling is available as an optional extra. When combined with the iQblue Connect electronics kit, the implement can be easily transformed into a smart plough with ISOBUS control and connected to your farm management system.

The basic equipment includes the tried-and-tested Dural bodies. Made from specially hardened steel, DuraMaxx bodies are also available and meet maximum requirements in terms of durability. Mechanical non-stop overload protection is recommended for stony soils. As with all LEMKEN mounted reversible ploughs, the Optiquick adjustment system for side draught-free work is already on board.

All LEMKEN mounted ploughs are equipped with the new pendulum wheel, the height of which can be adjusted without tools via a series of holes. For material protection and greater working comfort, hydraulic suspension is also fitted to the depth wheel. A simple conversion kit is available if you want to upgrade to a Uni wheel for road transport.

The Juwel 6 is suitable for tractors from 70 to 130 hp and will be available from specialist agricultural machinery dealers from March 2023.
