Tillage Live: Vaderstad Swift cultivator

This was the first public working demo for Vaderstad’s Swift stubble cultivator. It is the first one from the Swedish firm that is built on a tubular frame and comes in 5.6m, 7.2m and 8.7m widths (though smaller 4m and 4.4m versions are on the way).

Vibrating spring tines do the main work, and can be fitted with 50mm points for deeper working or 80mm ones for regular work. These are followed by a set of levelling discs mounted in rubber suspensions that can be hydraulically set from the cab.

Maximum depth is about 15cm, and the 5.6m version (which is expected to be the most popular one) costs £27,720.
