For todays modern farms the demands for cultivation have changed. Tight time slots have to be balanced with higher machine performance. Restricted crop rotations call for an adaption in techniques that accomplish all requirements of modern crop cultivation. Kverneland proposes different configurations depending on the conditions of use, but also the power ability:
The CTC has a well-organised tine arrangement over 3 or 4 tine rows. The capacity with long residues has really been a focus during the design process ensuring optimum mixing and intensive cultivation. The row distance varies between 270mm and 200mm; the tine position has been optimised to ensure a smooth soil flow across the entire working width but also around the transport wheels.
• CTC with 3 tine rows and 270mm tine spacing
• CTC with 4 tine rows and 200mm tine spacing
|Model||Working width||No. of tines||Min./Max. HP|
|CTC 427||4.0m||15 (spacing 270mm)||145 / 300|
|CTC 420||4.0m||19 (spacing 200mm)||145 / 300|
|CTC 527||5.0m||17 (spacing 270mm)||175 / 350|
|CTC 520||5.0m||23 (spacing 200mm)||175 / 350|
|CTC 627||6.0m||21 (spacing 270mm)||205 / 400|
|CTC 620||6.0m||29 (spacing 200mm)||205 / 400|
Triflex 700: High stability at deep operations
The auto-reset Triflex tine uses the well-known Kverneland leaf spring system to ensure a high point pressure of 700kg in work and a smooth release curve when the tine hits an obstacle. The Triflex tine with narrow design and special shape reduces the pulling forces while ensuring a perfect penetration in most compacted soil. It is the perfect choice for deep loosening and working on heavier soil types strewn with stones.
The Triflex 700 tine can be equipped with different shares to adapt to different working depths and tasks. 7 types of share equipments are available with the patented Knock-on® system. It is the easiest way of changing parts on a cultivator, either to adapt the machine to the job to be done or to change wearing parts.
The Quantum share 345mm - always in combination with Knock-on® or Tiger carbide point 80mm - has been designed for use especially in hard soil. The 80mm point combined with the 345mm wing share ensures perfect penetration and complete flat cutting for a homogeneous weed regrowth.
Two types of carbide points – 80mm and 150mm Tiger point. The special design ensures progressive and high penetration and requires low pulling force. The special shape of the carbide plate resist against aggressive stony conditions. All points are also available with Knock-on® deflectors.

For the CTC 3 rows, Kverneland has developed a front disc system to cut or incorporate crop residues in front of the cultivator tines.
The disc system has a centralized hydraulic depth adjustment with master slave cylinder system and individual rubber disc protection. This overload system allows the disc to follow the ground contour very well.
As the working depth of the disc section is limited to 5cm, the required pulling force is insignificantly low.
Front Mixing Disc (FMD)
The front mixing disc (FMD) option is the ideal equipment that avoid any boiling effect in front of the tines especially with short wheat straw. The FMD system has notched hollow discs which are ideal when working in high amounts of crop residues. The FMD system pre-mixes any straw standing on the top of the stubble to ensure thorough mixing by the stubbling tines for improved incorporation. The adjustment of the pressure can be done on the move from the cab hydraulically.
Front Cutting Disc (FCD)
The FCD system has notched straight discs which are mounted in front of the first row of tines. The FCD system is ideal when working in maize straw for example, where the disc is cutting the straw directly in front of the tines. The straw is cut to improve the flow of material and prevent the machine from blocking.
