Twist points designed to crack and mix the soil can be fitted with wings for added lift and wider soil movement. They are followed by mixing and levelling discs with sealed bearings and individual mounting to the frame using clamps with rubber cushion suspension.

A number of different finishing rollers – including a heavy duty disc roller – are available for the cultivator, which is also available 5m wide and with a trailing kit as an alternative to the standard fully-mounted couplings.
