The LEMKEN Karat 9 – also suited to extra-shallow applications

The Karat 9 intensive cultivator has been used successfully all over the world for many years. With eight different share designs, it can be put to a wide range of uses at working depths of 5 to 30 centimetres, from shallow stubble cultivation to primary tillage. The new DeltaCut shares (KG 35) now enable extra-shallow cultivation at a working depth of up to five centimetres.

Shallow cultivation across the full working width is especially useful for incorporating winter catch crops in spring or for that first pass of stubble cultivation. DeltaCut shares reliably undercut winter catch crops and prevent additional water from being drained from the soil. By incorporating harvest residues at a shallow depth during stubble cultivation, weed seeds and volunteer cereals are encouraged to germinate evenly and evaporation is reduced.

At a medium line spacing of approx. 28 centimetres, the 35-centimetre-wide DeltaCut shares continue to till across the full working width even after extended use. They are available with carbide coating for particularly high area outputs, which enable them to deliver a service life that is up to five times longer. The minimal longitudinal wear of these shares ensures a consistently high quality of work throughout their full service life.

A quick-change system comes as standard with the LEMKEN Karat 9 to facilitate its rapid, tool-free conversion for extra-shallow tillage. The DeltaCut shares are available now.
