Always a trump card in your hand

Strengths of the Joker

  • 5 to 8 m working width
  • Produces high quantities of fine soil within the germination zone
  • Efficient consolidation in the germination zone
  • No problems with long residues and shallow cultivation. High clearance because of mountings in pairs.
  • Improved operational results with increased speed
  • High working performance with little draft requirement
  • High working speed in general
  • Good penetration with aggressive, serrated discs and maximum machine weight
  • All-over cutting at low working depth

In which working conditions does the Joker perform well?

  • Shallow and fast stubble cultivation for quick germination of lost grain, interrupting capillary and ensuring incorporation of straw
  • Effective seed bed preparation after plough or cultivator
  • Incorporation of long straw and difficult residues (cover crops, corn stubble)
  • Smooth incorporation of organic fertilisers (manure, cover crops)

Joker 5 – 8 RT

Can be combined with additional tools

Optional knife roller for the Joker 5 – 8 RT

The roller covers the whole working width. Its diameter is 300 mm and it is equipped with 6 knives per roller for a very high rotational speed, thus additionally improving the crushing effect. The knifes are arranged in a slightly diagonal way to guarantee that the force is distributed evenly. The knife rest against the rotor to guarantee top stability. The whole system is pre-stressed hydraulically with up to 100 bar and protected hydraulically against overload. The new front tool is perfect for example for chrushing catch crop populations in spring or autumn as well as for a ultra-shallow stubble cultivation in rape, sunflowers or silage maize. The knife roller can also be used to fight the corn borer in silage maize stubbles.

Crossbar

  • On intensely cultivated and ploughed fields
  • Additional levelling after plough and before sowing
  • Hydraulically adjustable
  • Simple handling

Joker 10 / 12 RT

  • Despite large working widths compact folding to 3 m
  • Soil-saving turning on the packer and the front support wheels. This also helps to protect the frame of the machine additionally.
  • Produces high quantities of fine soil
  • Excellent operational results
  • Cone-shaped discs for a constant cutting angle of 17°
  • Compact machine with high levelling capacity
  • Discs are mounted in rubber elements, thus increasing the operational life and improving the contour-following qualities
  • Double RollPack packer with U-profile rings (Ø 55 cm). Very sturdy and suitable for all types of soil. Resistant to stones even at high speeds. Linked packer rings for excellent self-cleaning.
