Roller harrow – adding additional reconsolidation to the soil

Rollenstriegel(1)_rdax_103x300.jpg

The Roller harrow additionally consolidates the soil above the seed furrow resulting in the optimum germination conditions. This is recommended especially for light, dry soils when sowing spring crops or rape. An undulating surface profile that reduces erosion is the result. The Roller harrow, adjustable separately from the coulter pressure, can follow the ground contours over a range of ±100 mm. (1) Roller harrow in operation: the drag tine harrow covers the seed with soil which is then pressed by the Roller harrow. (2) Roller harrow pulled out of work: the drag tine harrow continues to cover the seed with soil.
