Vaderstad airs new cultivators

AGGRESSIVE by name and aggressive by nature is how Vaderstad describes its new series of NZ cultivators.

The implements are now constructed with a 60mm x 60mm box section frame which is claimed to be significantly stronger than the frame used on previous NZ models.

Soil is levelled by an optional rear crossboard which can be adjusted in parallel with the aid of a crank handle and a telescopic alignment bar.

Between the crossboards, five rows of Agrilla-Cobra spring tines are now 5cm longer and are claimed to be more durable to improve ground penetration and trash burial.

Working depth along the entire cultivator width can be altered horizontally by central and outer hydraulic rams.

Available in 5m-10m working widths, the NZ Aggressive cultivator also feature larger transport wheels with over 45% more carrying capacity. A following harrow with suspension is claimed to be beefier and more responsive.
