Kverneland Qualidisc Farmer

The lighter model within the range of Kverneland short disc harrows for effective cultivation

The Kverneland compact disc harrow, Qualidisc Farmer in working width of 2.0 to 6.0m

Shallow and deeper cultivation, stubble cultivation, seedbed preparation or cover crop seeding. All these different tasks require excellent penetration, cutting and consolidation quality. The Qualidisc Farmer is the right choice to carry out these operations at high forward speeds of 18 to 20km/h. 

The Qualidisc Farmer is the lighter version of the Qualidisc Pro for more shallow use, up to 10cm deep. Consequently, the machine is 15% lighter on mounted version and 7% on trailed version, easier to lift, ideal for reducing soil compaction and energy saving as it is lighter to pull.

There are 3 different models of the Qualidisc Farmer:

Rigid models from 2.00m to 4.00m - up to 200hp
Fold models from 4.00 to 6.00m - up to 300hp

Qualidisc Farmer: Sturdy frame

  • Extremely sturdy - the Qualidisc Farmer is fitted with a frame well-proven with the Kverneland cultivator range.
  • Due to the strong headstock and a frame size of 100 x 100 x 8 mm, the Qualidisc Farmer can be equipped with the heaviest roller.
  • The brackets of the roller are fixed at the front bar of the frame for a better weight transfer during road transport and also at higher driving speeds.
  • Due to the small distance between the disc sections, the Qualidisc Farmer requires reduced lifting capacity
  • The working depth is easily adjusted by spacers situated at the depth cylinders
  • The lateral deflectors are folded to keep the transport width in line with road traffic regulations

Maintenance-free bearings

  • Each angled arm is fitted with a large maintenance-free double ball bearing and 35 mm axle. This high-quality bearing is able to carry heavy radial and axial loads.
  • Special protection on the side of the arm is achieved by a special seal of 5 sealing lips and by the joint protecting the bearing.
  • On the other side the disc is protected against dust by an O-ring.
  • The disc hub is fixed onto the arm by a bolt and special washers that prevent any loosening. The bolt is protected against soil by its position inside the arm.

Perfect cutting quality

Due to the aggressive discs and the considerable weight (up to 150 kg/disc), the Qualidisc Pro and the Qualidisc Farmer ensure an excellent working quality even under dry conditions.

The ground is completely cut, the stubble broken apart and correctly mixed on the surface for a good emergence of weeds and volunteer cereal seeds.

A constant cutting angle
Whatever the diameter of the disc, the cutting angle is always constant due to its conical design.

Long lasting discs
Discs of 6mm thickness and  Ø600mm for the Qualidisc Pro.
Discs of 5mm thickness and  Ø520mm for the Qualidisc Farmer.

The discs are given a special heat treatment for a long durability and strength. Thus the machine's longevity is increased and the maintenance costs reduced.

Big notched discs
Kverneland proposes discs with big notches to enhance the rotation in fluffy soil and for a better self-cleaning of the disc with more than 20% of clay. Small notches are kept to maintain the very good cutting quality.

Rear rollers

A large choice of rollers

According to the soil specifications, the consolidation required, the mixing of the soil and straw, the surface of the soil requested and the lifting capacity available, Kverneland offers a choice of rear rollers.

  • Cage roller Ø 550mm - 90kg/m
  • Double cage roller Ø 400mm - 160kg/m
    (available on mounted rigid and mounted folding models)
  • Actiring roller Ø 540mm - 160kg/m: active with the adjustable knives, ensuring a good mixture of soil and straw and consolidation.
  • Actipack roller Ø 560mm - 205kg/m: heavier, for clod crushing and very firm recompaction of the soil. Adapted also for heavy and sticky soil conditions.
  • Actiflex roller Ø 580mm - 160kg/m: intensive mixing effect combined with a good recompaction makes this roller the ideal tool for best volunteer's regrowth.
  • Actipress Twin Ø 565mm - 220kg/m without soil:
    (available on mounted rigid and mounted folding models)
    u-profile for high carrying/rolling capacity in light soils. Clod breaking also in heavy conditions. High and homogenous consolidation.
    Weight when full of soil: 250kg/m
