UFO PIEGHEVOLE

118-265 kW (160-360 HP)
DISC HARROW
FOLDING FRAME

UFO is also available in folding version, from 13' to 20' working widths. Taking the load off the tractor, the folding UFO assures a safe transport onroad, having a reduced 10' overall width in transport position. Folding UFO can also be fitted with different wheels sizes if needed (400/60-15.5, 500/458-22.5, 700/40-22.5) and with an optional air or hydraulic braking system. Moreover the special design lower links attaching toolbar allows great maneuvrability on field heads as well as turning.

Agronomic insight

UFO is designed to accomplish several actions in the field:

  • Residue sizing – Aggressive notched blades slice through crop residue to effectively size it for rapid decomposition.
  • Residue blending – The high-speed rotation of the discs turns the soil while chopping residue. This results in an ideal mixture of tilled soil with properly sized residue.
  • Oxygen introduction/warming – As the soil and residue are mixed, oxygen enters the tilled zone and in cooler soils the action also warms the seed zone for rapid crop rooting and emergence.
  • Activation of soil bacteria – Machinery doesn't break down crop residue as the soil bacteria does. When soil is warmed and oxygen is introduced, soil bacteria becomes active and feeds on crop residue. During this process, the residue decomposes and the nutrients become available for new plantings.
  • Finishing – Consolidating the soil/residue mix helps bacteria break down residue better. The consolidated surface also produces an ideal seedbed, prevents erosion and creates a capillary effect to preserve moisture.

Our cast two point hitch allows for easy hookup and great versatility in the field because of the multiple pivot points.

Easy and safe in transportation, robust and even in the field

Thanks to the four hydraulic cylinders the frame folds up into two sections which makes it very narrow in transportation width (3m/10ft) and very safe to travel down the road.  The locking vales located on the folding cylinders allow for easy transportation in between fields.  This allows you to not have to leave the cab to move from field to field.

Culti-Hub Open Close

Culti-Hub

UFO include maintenance-free disc hubs with metal face sealing, double bearing and oil-filled, thus providing long service life (20,000 acres warranty). Discs are mounted directly to the bearing caps, which helps shield the bearing from damage in the field.

Heavy-duty frame

UFO frame is extremely sturdy! The folding version is equipped with 4 cylinders, 2 per side, that ensure a constant working depth preventing frame oscillations, torsions and than damages

 

 

Hydraulic draw bar Open Close

Hydraulic draw bar

UFO can be equipped with a heavy duty 3 or 4 CAT. drawbar. Drawbar inclination can be comfortably adjusted from tractor seat just acting on the hydraulic cylinder to ensure maximum stability in transport and to adjust discs gangs down-pressure on the run.

Double coil spring Open Close

Double Spring Tine

Double coil spring

Each  disc hub is mounted on an individual heavy duty double coil spring support. The coil support produces a permanent 3D vibration which improves soil refinement and residues incorporation. The spring arm allows an indipendent action of each disc and compensates for varying ground conditions as discs can move upwards and sideways.

Containing side discs

Easily adjustable side discs (in depth and inclination) allow a perfect soil retention even with heavy crop residues, preparing an optimal seed bed and leaving a nice flat finish (no side ridges or furrows).
