Kverneland 150 B Variomat

Perfect choice High performance
in light to medium without stones
"On the Move" working width variation

This new mounted reversible plough aims at intensive ploughing for small to medium size farms. 

The new design of the 150 serie induces low operating costs to the farmer. The unique steel heat treatment applied to the complete plough guarantees Kverneland’s values: high performance, long working life even in the toughest of soil conditions.
Light, robust, easy to handle: Kverneland Technology!

The benefits:

  • Low lift requirements, easy to pull, low fuel consumption
  • Easy furrow width adjustments : Variomat®
  • Simple to adjust and to operate. For instance, the 1rst furrow adjustment via the parallelogram system automatically corrects the alignment of the plough
  • Efficient shearbolt leg protection (3400Kp)  
  • Choice of cross shaft, category II and III or quick coupling option.
  • Wide range of accessories

Kverneland Variomat®:

  • For Optimal match between tractor, implement and soil conditions
  • Increases capacity by more than 40% (12-20”)
  • Cost efficient : when output increases by 40 %, fuel consumption/ha reduces significantly
  • Easier to work straight and close to obstacles like fences…
  • Smart working width adjustments from tractor seat  (optional memory system)
  • Self adjusting pulling line

Unique frame robustness 150 B Variomat

Importance of heat treatment

  • The frame is an essential part of the plough construction. For Kverneland quality standards, a non heat treated part is a weak part!
  • Kverneland frames are heat treated by induction twice. The temperature transfer to the steel is closely monitored. The frame gains 3 times as much strength. This unique Kverneland induction processes provides robustness and flexibility while ensuring an outstanding durability.

Stronger but not heavier

  • For the equivalent Kverneland robustness, competitors would use more steel in thickness or in dimensions, therefore producing a heavier frame.
  • Heavier frame impacts negatively pulling forces, wearing of parts, lifting capacities, tractor life time, and fuel consumption.

Long lasting

  • Weldings are also a critical weakness for a plough frame. Kverneland frames are supplied as one sole part!

Frame availability

  • 150 x 150mm for 3,4, 5 furrows, extendable by 1 furrow max. 5 F. plough.

Vari-Width® (Variomat) System

Stepless Vari-width® system for infinite adjustments of working width, from 30 to 50 cm (12 to 20”) depending on models. Kverneland’s world patented system is available either with hydraulic or mechanical furrow adjustments.

Benefits:

  • Easy variation of ploughing capacity
  • Perfect match at all time between tractor capacity, implement and soil conditions
  • Time saving: up to 30% more capacity
  • Cost saving: up to 18% reduction in fuel consumption in relation with increased ploughing capacity
  • Better work: plough up to the hedges, fences, trees and ditches
  • Minimum wear: unique non-wearing linkage joint between the beams and the mainframe section
  • Perfect line of pull at all time. Kverneland’s Vari-width offers the correct parallel linkage along the whole plough. Therefore, lower draft requirement, minimum wear and tear.

Heat Treatment

Kverneland Heat Treatment Technology:

  • more than 130 years of experience
  • steels that withstand the toughest of conditions
  • best robustness/weight ratio on the market
  • for equivalent robustness, competitors would add more steel and therefore more weight, quicker wear, dissappointing ploughing results

Kverneland Steels:

  • Benefits from less weight:
    easier to pull/lower fuel consumption/lower lift requirement/reduced wear and stress for the tractor/more economical …
  • Benefits from more resistance:
    minimum breakage/less maintenance/lower rotation for wearing parts/time saving/highest 2nd hand plough value/longer life for the plough/more economical…

Problems always happen when the plough is being used, when the work must be done!

A Kverneland plough is a peace mind!
