|Auto-reset shanks||Each shank is equippend with a 3" ¼ or 4" tips that shatters compact soil layers (up to 12") and 3" ¼ curved deflectors to improve residue incorporation and soil leveling. Deflectors are arranged in an X layout among shanks in order to increase soil mixing and a crumbling effect. Spring dumpening system has a 2100 lb pre-load. Shank placement on three lines and spacing (19" ? among each line) promotes a perfect flow with no clogging issues.
|Narrow on the road||Dracula is only 10 ft wide in transport mode, regardless of working width in the field. The large transport tyres (550/60-22.5) ensure excellent manoeuvrability during transport on road and when turning at field heads.
|Heavy-Duty Frame||Dracula’s frame is extremely sturdy! The main frame is made of a 14" x 10" heavy duty beam where wings are connected and operated by 4 hydraulic cylinders which ensure a constant working depth preventing frame oscillations, torsions and damages. The great clearance guarantees no-stop tillage working in high trash conditions at high speeds.
|Power-less soil refinement||Rear discs levelers (diameter of 18") smooths the soil profile. Discs are equipped with silent-blocks to prevent damages and their position can be easily adjusted by hydraulically.
The ring roller (diameter of 23" ¾) has an aggressive profile that crushes clods and sub-consolidates the soil.
|Superb chopping and mixing||Front individual mounted notched discs have a wide diameter (24"). They are made in high tensile boron steel and have a soil contact which is four times wider than the smaller diameter discs. The discs concavity ensures better soil-residue mixing even in the presence of very high residue density, superb tough stalk management.
The 22° cutting angle, the disc shape and spacing ensure an optimal cutting quality even in the toughest working conditions.
|The Dracula's concept||Cut and mix: The front double discs gangs size residue, dislodge roots and get the residues in contact with the soil for a faster decomposition.
Loosening: three rows of shanks designed to break up compacted layers, promote aeration, limit erosion and runoff, and improve water infiltration which helps the soil to retain moisture.
Levelling: disc levellers eliminate any ridges left by the rear row of shanks.
Consolidation: the rear ring roller reconsolidates and firms the seedbed.
