Research shows evidence that in some particular soil conditions, shallow ploughing is recommended. Kverneland Ecomat is then the answer.
Kverneland Ecomat, a revolutionary concept in tillage methods
Kverneland Ecomat is a lightweight implement that tills the soil extremely efficiently via shallow ploughing (10-18cm). New short bodies available in steel or plastic for low wearing.
Compared to conventional tillage, the farmer saves time and energy. The result: an equally good crop with less efforts. In comparison with reduced tillage system, the farmer gains a more secure and stable cultivation method for better results. The problem of weeds, fungus and other diseases also decreases. The farmer becomes less dependent on the weather and can work if the soil is relatively moist. Seeds will germinate and grow better in a clean, fine soil layer.

Unbeatable in stony conditions !
Kvernelands fully automatic non-stop Auto-Reset System is unbeatable when it comes to trouble-free ploughing in stony conditions. The clever multi-leaf spring system allows the plough legs to release over stones and other solid objects in a smooth and efficient manner. This avoids sudden jolts and possible damage. Once the obstruction is passed, the plough body automatically returns to the correct ploughing depth.
With today's demands for higher output, both tractor and plough are expected to perform quicker than ever. This makes more arduous demands on the equipment, particularly on the safety systems designed to protect tractors, ploughs and drivers against the dangers encountered whenever the plough meets hidden obstructions in the ground. The Kverneland Auto-Reset system guaranties this safety high standars requirements.
Adaptable to varying soil conditions
Depending of the type of soil all Kverneland ploughs can be equipped with different leaf springs packages. For soft soils, a normal spring with 5 leaves is the best choice to obtain the perfect ploughing in stony conditions. Today, most Kverneland ploughs are delivered with the Heavy Duty springs package (HD) with 7 leaves. This will perform well in most conditions. If the soil is very hard and stony - a double leaf spring package is recommended.
Extra leaves when needed
The standard Auto-Reset system includes 7 Kverneland heat treated springs (640Kp).
For heavier to extreme soil conditions, extra leaf springs are added for up to 1400kp.
The leaves are easily fixed with one central bolt only.
Individual body release !
The Kverneland mechanical Auto-Reset system enables very plough body to release independently. A quality ploughing is therefore guaranteed.
Minimum wear and high second hand value
Kverneland's Auto-Reset System is a quite simple construction that withstands the punishing forces year in, year out, with a minimum of maintenance. Save time and money !
Moreover, the Kverneland auto-reset system guarantees a longer life to the plough. When hitting an obstacle, the pressure on the point, frame, plough parts, decreases. The stress on Kverneland ploughs is therefore reduced. Consequently, second hand Kverneland ploughs sell at a higher value than competitors ploughs.
*by using an Hydraulic system, pressure would increase
Kverneland Heat Treatment Technology:
Problems always happen when the plough is being used, when the work must be done!
A Kverneland plough is a peace mind!
