Carrier X 425-625

Carrier X 425-625 is a mounted foldable disc cultivator with discs positioned in an x-shape, available in 4.25, 5.25 or 6.25 metre working width. It can be fitted with 450 or 470mm diameter discs. It has excellent contour following and impressive penetration ability for its weight. The working depth is set from the tractor cab, enabling adaptation to varying conditions in the field.

Carrier is a disc cultivator used for high speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. The wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables Carrier to handle the versatile challenges of modern farming – from ultra-shallow cultivation to a deeper incorporation. The versatility it brings to the farm saves passes, decreases machine cost per hectare and provides the best start possible for the coming crop.

X stands for x-disc

The discs are positioned in an x-shape, which enables the lateral forces to cancel each other out. The x-disc format guarantees that the machine will always run dead straight behind the tractor. This saves diesel but is also essential when using a GPS guidance system or when driving in hilly conditions.

Discs according to requirement

Carrier X 425-625 can be fitted with either 450mm discs or 470mm TrueCut discs. Both discs produces fine tilth optimal for a stale seedbed. The 450mm disc has small cut-outs, resulting in an intensive cultivation even at a very shallow working depth. The 470mm TrueCut disc has larger cut-outs which can handle more crop residue with increased penetration.

Adjustable disc angles

To further increase the soil searching ability of the discs the disc axles can be rotated to change the disc angles. Tests have shown this technique increases the penetration capacity by up to 50%, compared to traditional solutions with same machine weight. You benefit from an excellent penetration to weight ratio, as well as the ability to adjust the disc angle according to field conditions.  For full specifications visit the Väderstad website here.
