Catros 2TX

Compact Disc Harrow

The Catros compact disc harrow is ideally suited to shallow and intensively mixing soil tillage. Thanks to its easy pulling, and working widths from 7 m to 9 m, especially high forward speeds and impressive work rates are possible – and all this extraordinarily economically with a record-breaking low fuel consumption.

Low Fuel Consumption

With the Catros compact disc harrow, operational speeds of 12 km/h to 18 km/h are achieved problem-free, enabling outstandingly high work rates and reducing the operational time to a inimum. In order to determine reliable figures for these fuel costs, AMAZONE has carried out trials in collaboration with the DLG test centre in Gross-Umstadt. In all the tests, the Catros compact disc harrows proved to be extremely fuel efficient.

ContourFrame for optimum soil horizon following

Each of the three segments follow ground contours individually. The short distance between support wheels and the roller ensures the superb contour following over hills and through hollows.
During operation the wings are hydraulically pre-tensioned via a hydraulic accumulator working as a pressure accumulator which allows individual ground contour following on any of the segments, both upwards and also downwards. In this way, the machine frame optimally follows the ground contours over the entire width. This ContourFrame system provides an even quality of work as the individual ground following, even in difficult operating conditions, ensures the smooth travel.

Perfect working performance

During operation the weight of the centre running gear of the Catros-2TX, impacts completely on the performance of the discs, ensuring a good penetration of the discs into the soil, even under difficult conditions. Thanks to the standard bounce compensation of the drawbar, the Catros travels very smoothly, even under the most arduous conditions. 

Easy pulling for maximum acreage outputs

The basic equipment of the trailed machines Catros+-2TX (with 7 m, 8 m and 9 m working width) includes a centre bogey chassis. Catros+-2TX-machines are characterised by their smooth travel because the weight of the running gear evenly rests on the disc segment and the following rollers. In addition the weight of the running gear increases the even penetration of the machine into the soil. The centre running gear also makes the Catros+-2TX machines very manoeuverable. The Catros+-2TX is equipped with serrated or smooth 510 mm diameter discs and thus allows working depths from 3 to 15 cm.

Extremely precise, extremely shallow

Catros discs with their smooth rims are the ideal solution for the precise, extremely shallow and intensively mixing stubble work at working depths of 3 cm to 12 cm resulting in optimum conditions, for both the germination of volunteer grain and weed seeds, and quick straw breakdown.

For larger amounts of plant organic matter

The serrated Catros+ discs with a diameter of 510 mm are characterised by their aggressive operation and a safe penetration even under difficult conditions. They come into their own when used for the incorporation of maize straw and stubble, rejuvenating grassland or cultivating fallow land. With the Catros+, it is possible to work from 5 cm down to 15 cm deep.

Perfect contour following – individually suspended discs

Each individual disc is suspended from the frame on elastic sprung rubber elements which is much better than machines with rigid disc suspension. Every Catros concave disc can individually follow the ground contours, so that not only are the tracks filled up, but they are actually worked up, ensuring an evenly shallow soil tillage operation even with prevailing undulations on the soil surface. At the same time, by suspending each individual disc it allows the optimum passage of large amounts of organic matter in comparison to machines where the discs are mounted in pairs.

Aggressively angled discs

With a cutting angle of 17° at the front and 14° to the rear, the Catros discs are arranged especially aggressively ensuring the uninterrupted transfer of the soil-straw mixture from the first to the second row of discs resulting in a first class mixing of soil and plant material. Compared with shallower angled discs, the discharge angle of the more aggressive disc arrangement is noticeably smaller. In this way the moved soil/straw mixture is redeposited again on the soil surface well ahead of the following roller.

No lubrication ever again – thanks to the maintenance-free disc bearings

With no need to lubricate the disc bearings, this results in a significantly reduced overall maintenance time. Face seals have been used for decades in road construction equipment where the rollers on the running gear of caterpillar-tracked vehicles have to be effectively sealed and continue to work absolutely reliably under the toughest of operational conditions.

Safe and absolutely maintenance free

The sprung rubber mountings allow for the optimum adaptation of the concave discs to the soil surface. The large diameter of the rubber buffer blocks gives a high spring pressure to prevent impact. 

Travels so smooth on the road

The new Catros+-2TX trailed compact disc harrows, in working widths from 7 m to 9 m, impress with their excellent travelling behaviour on the road, despite of their huge working widths. For safer, faster road transport, the running gear can be equipped with a braking system that permits speeds of up 40 km/h (please observe country-specific traffic regulations).
Due to the flanged linkage on the drawbar of the trailed Catros+-2TX, an individual choice of linkage to the tractor is possible. So, for any tractor, the most suitable linkage can be chosen. From choice, there is available a cross shaft in Cat. III, IV or V, different towing eye diameters or the K80 ball point hitch. 

Options:

Rollers

For seedbed preparation for maize or sugar beet, the AMAZONE compact disc harrows can be equipped with a variety of rollers in addition to a following harrow. The following harrow creates a very fine-crumbled soil surface structure and thus the perfect germination conditions for the following crops. An additional advantage when using the harrow is the optimised straw distribution.    

For reconsolidating the soil a variety of following rollers are available. The right roller can be chosen for any individual application.

1.) SW Cage roller
2.) PW tooth packer roller
3.) TW tandem roller
4.) DW Disc roller
5.) KWM wedge ring roller with Matrix tyre profile
6.) KW wedge ring roller
7.) WW angle profile roller
8.) UW U-Profile roller
9.) DUW double U-Profile roller with rear harrow  

Crushboard

For levelling and better crumbling, a Crushboard in front or behind the disc rows is available as option. In this way, especially after ploughing, coarse clods on the surface can be broken up. The stepless depth setting is mechanical as standard but, as an option, an extremely comfortable hydraulic depth adjustment is available.
