Simple Adjustments and Versatile Options

EL92_DepthControl.jpg

Depth Control

When fitted with a roller, depth adjustment is easily performed using pins inserted into a multi-hole quadrant. The roller is free to drop, maintaining maximum contact with the soil in any condition. This provides optimum firming of the seedbed and helps level the cultivated surface.

MaxiPacker Roller

The large 21-inch MaxiPacker roller diameter reduces the rolling resistance and increases flotation. This roller can easily be combined with heavier drills. Coated scrapers are supplied as standard to maximize the service life, reduce adjustment, and improve cleaning of the roller in sticky soils.

Adjustable Two-Piece Rear Hood

The EL 282 Series power harrows come with an articulated, curved rear hood that can be easily adjusted by hand cranks. This convenient adjustment allows you the ability to recirculate the soil and crop residues to regulate the soil flow for improved seedbed leveling.

Rapid Rotor Replacement

Quick Change Rotor System

This system provides rapid exchange between the Cultirotor rotor and the Cultitiller rotor. You will also be able to safely replace the blades by separating the rotor from the chassis. It takes just a few minutes to remove the five mounting bolts and the rotor is on the ground!

Large Rotor Clearance

The significant clearance between the rotor and casing reduces power requirements and facilitates soil flow. In wet conditions, the machine has less tendency for soil buildup to occur between the rotor and the body.

Double Drive

The double drive (similar design to a planetary gear train) ensures a smoother and more efficient drive than with two individual gearboxes: an exclusive KUHN feature.
