Vaderstad launches Swift cultivator

Vaderstad’s latest offering in the cultivator market sits between the Top Down and Carrier models giving a medium level of ground disturbance.

The Swift is designed to work in medium to heavy soils and the firm says the 5.6m version can be pulled with a 160-180hp tractor.

A bank of staggered heavy duty spring tines work the soil to a maximum of 16-17cm followed by a row of hydraulic levellers and an optional trailing harrow.

The company has moved to a tubular construction which Vaderstad claims increases strength and reduces the risk of welds cracking.

The 5.6m, 560 model will cost about £27,500 and the firms says production will start in April 2011. A 9m version will also be available.
