Efficient tillage technology with a large range of use
The HORSCH cultivator Terrano FX is a compact universal cultivator which can be equipped with different points. It is used for a shallow whole area stubble cultivation or for intensive loosening and mixing of straw to a working depth of between 5 and 30 cm. Its 3-bar, robust frame design with high clearance ensures uniform mixing in of residues even in difficult soil conditions. In comparison to 2-bar cultivators, the Terrano FX keeps the soil within the cultivator for a longer time, thus ensuring an excellent mixing performance. Even levelling and deep consolidation ensure a perfect finish and produce an optimal seedbed.
Already in 2003, the DLG Fokus test confirmed the low horsepower requirement of the Terrano FX. Maintaining best working quality, the Terrano FX consumes 20 % less diesel compared to the average consumption of all tested candidates.
The point systems can be changed easily. Each is individually optimised for its specific task (whole area / shallow, intensive mixing / deep). This makes the Terrano FX versatile, not only in working depth but also in performance. The working depth of the Terrano FX is controlled by the hydraulics of the tractor and the packing system. The depth is set with ClipOn spacers (AluClips) that limit the lowering depth of the cultivator frame in relation to the packing system.
The robust TerraGrip tine provides constant point control at the required working depth. The MulchMix points guarantee intensive mixing of the soil without damaging the soil structure. The levelling discs are optimally placed and can be adjusted so that the surface is level. In addition to its weight, the Terrano uses the down force of the tines for an even and deep consolidation.
What are the excelling features of the Terrano FX?
- Works in crop residues superbly, under all conditions
- Really easy to pull, tractive power requirement starts at 120 hp
- Robust, even for the most stringent requirements
- Working depths between 5 and 30 cm
- Short, compact design
- Equipment versions to suit all conditions
Terrano FX – Universal cultivation without compromise
The HORSCH Terrano FX is a compact 3-bar cultivator with a wide range of use – whether for shallow stubble cultivation or intensive soil cultivation.
The all-rounder Terrano FX mixes perfectly in all depths between 5 and 30 cm. Thanks to the frame height of 85 cm (on the 3, 3.5, 4 and 5 FX models) and a tine spacing of 30 cm, the Terrano accurately mixes in all crop residues, even under the heaviest of conditions.

HORSCH Milestone – Farming without a plough
During the 30-year-old company tradition HORSCH – like no other manufacturer – contributed to the breakthrough of tillage without a plough . In 2013, these efforts were awarded with the “ Milestone of Agricultural Engineering ” award. A lot of products, e. g. the Terrano, Tiger and Joker models and last but not least the universal seed drill Pronto DC, allow for farming without a plough on the highest level. According to the Federal Statistical Office by now 40 per cent of the arable land is cultivated without a plough. For wheat it amounts to even 60 per cent. 20 years ago no-one dared to believe that. HORSCH played an important part in getting this far. With this background other milestones in agricultural engineering will be developed.
The TerraGrip is a very powerful tine with overload protection. The trip height amounts to 30 cm without triggering a shear bolt. This saves time and money. Due to the effective stone protection the tine moves quickly in case of overload and due to the spring force penetrates the soil again quickly and exactly – without the usual side movements.
When avoiding an obstacle, the force of the spring decreases from 500 kg to 175 kg. The force that acts on the frame is thus reduced considerably. The optimised spring kit allows for an exact point control in the desired working depth – even in heavy soils and large working depths. Due to high-quality material and large pivot points any greasing points become unnecessary.
Point versions for any use
The MulchMix point with its steep angle is designed for the intensive mixing of harvest residues and deep cultivation. Due to the large diameter (600 mm) of the HORSCH MulchMix point the soil is not pressed and its structure remains intact. Regardless of the working depth: The point never penetrates the soil vertically. This reduces the horse power requirement and saves valuable petrol. Even if there are high amounts of straw, it achieves an excellent mixing quality. The MulchMix points consist of three parts (point, guide plate, wing) which can be changed independently. For a very shallow stubble cultivation and all-over cutting the wings can be set to a shallow position. If deep loosening and at the same time an excellent mixing of the soil is desired, the wings can simply be dismantled.
The newly developed HORSCH TerraCut wing is used for shallow, all-over tillage at a maximum depth of 8 cm. The 40 cm wide wing is combined with the well-known LD or LD+ point and can be used on all HORSCH TerraGrip tines shafts. The shallow setting angle of the TerraCut point guarantees a safe cutting effect and a low mixing effect for an efficient drying of growth or catch crops.
If a deep loosening is sufficient and mixing is not required, HORSCH LD points can be mounted that loosen excellently subterraneously up to 15 cm and do not move much earth. Another option is the HORSCH ULD point which due to its shape does not take clods to the surface, but only loosens deeply.

Another option is the HORSCH ULD points that due to its shape does not takes clods to the surface, but only loosens the soil deeply.
FOR THE OPTIMUM RESULT
HORSCH can supply the appropriate packer version for deep as well as for shallow consolidation. The choice of the packer depends on the soil and HORSCH has a reasonable solution for any type of soil. Due to the consolidation excessively loose soil is compacted, clods are destroyed and an ideal environment with an optimum ratio of water- and air-bearing pores is created.
The following packers are available for the Terrano FX:
Winter packer, DoubleCage packer, FarmFlex packer, RingFlex packer, SteelDisc packer, tyre packer, cage drum roller, RollCut packer, RollFlex packer and RollPack packer.
Why is the appropriate packer so important for your machine?
- Central element to determine the work quality
- Depth control
- Different consolidation depending on the requirements
- Perfect work quality in wet and dry conditions
- Appropriate germination bed for volunteer crops and weeds
- Rough, loose soil structure for medium and heavy soils
- Final finishing of the seed horizon
Accurate efficiency for catch crops and Greening
The HORSCH MiniDrill is a completely new development. It is equipped with a 400 l hopper and the well-proven metering unit of the Pronto. The seed is injected directly into the distribution system. The MiniDrill can be combined with all Terrano FX and GX machines.
To guarantee an excellent lateral distribution there are six evenly distributed outlets in front of or behind the packer for 3 m machines and twelve outlets for 4 m working width upward.
