Carrier XT 525 Trailed

Carrier XT 425-625 - Trailed

Optimized tillage performance

The trailed models of Carrier XT 425-625 is a foldable disc cultivator with discs positioned in an x-shape, available in 4.25, 5.25 or 6.25 metre working width. With an easy machine setting as well as rotating disc axles, Carrier XT is built to optimize the tillage result depending on the working depth.

Part of the Carrier concept

Carrier is a disc cultivator used for high speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. The wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables Carrier to handle the versatile challenges of modern farming – from ultra-shallow cultivation to a deeper incorporation. The versatility it brings to the farm saves passes, decreases machine cost per hectare and provides the best start possible for the coming crop.

It's all about angles

A main feature of Carrier XT is its hydraulically rotating disc axles. Thereby Carrier XT is able to optimize the cut-out performance at shallow depth, while increasing the depth precision at deeper working depths. Reducing the amount of soil moved and optimizing the machine weight, is important to deliver best possible results as well as minimise the diesel consumption. By adapting the disc angles to the working depth, Väderstad Carrier can do more with less.

For the farmer, this is seen in a full cut-out at shallower working depth, as well as an excellent depth keeping and reduced soil flow at deeper working depths.

Väderstad Carrier with discs according to requirement

Discs according to requirement

Carrier XT 425-625 can be fitted with either 450mm discs or 470mm TrueCut discs. Both discs produces fine tilth optimal for a stale seedbed.

The 450mm disc has small cut-outs, resulting in an intensive cultivation even at a very shallow working depth. The 470mm TrueCut disc has larger cut-outs which can handle more crop residue with increased penetration.

Intensive ultra-shallow tillage with CrossCutter Disc

Intensive ultra-shallow tillage

CrossCutter Disc performs outstanding in oilseed rape stubble and in cover crops, while also enabling great advantages in grain stubble as well as on ploughed land. Because of its disc shape and high quality Swedish steel, CrossCutter Disc provides full cultivation and intensive mixing at shallow working depth. This means that an extensive stale seedbed is created over the entire field.

Väderstad X-disc runs straight behind the tractor

X stands for x-disc

The discs are positioned in an x-shape, which enables the lateral forces to cancel each other out. The x-disc format guarantees that the machine will always run dead straight behind the tractor. This saves diesel but is also essential when using a GPS guidance system or when driving in hilly conditions.

Intensive knife roller CrossCutter Knife

CrossCutter Knife adds versatility

By equipping Carrier XT with the intensive knife roller CrossCutter Knife, crop residues can be cut in two directions.

Weeds and small-seeded crops, such as oilseed rape, profit from an improved germination. A benefit after grain or sunflowers is the intensified chopping of the straw, giving a faster decomposition. Additionally, cover crops can be crushed and incorporated cost efficiently.

Väderstad Carrier CrossBoard heavy for perfect levelling

CrossBoard Heavy for perfect levelling

With CrossBoard Heavy, clods are crushed and the soil is levelled. A double acting stabilising bar increases levelling capacity.

The CrossBoard is equipped with master and slave cylinders, which ensures a level work result by maintaining the position of each CrossBoard section.

On ploughed heavy land, CrossBoard Heavy enables Carrier to prepare a well prepared seedbed which in turn reduces the number of passes required.

CrossBoard Performance

Maximum CrossBoard performance

The double-acting stabiliser bar connects the CrossBoard tines to one single unit, preventing separate tines to move either forward or backward. This radically increases the suspension power and in turn the capacity to both level the field, and crush clods.
