Excalibur® CT Blades
North American agronomy practices, like increased seeding rates, GMO hybrids and even varying soil moisture conditions must be reliably managed. The Interceptor’s depth-of-frame design provides ample distance for residue and soil flow between two parallel rows of 22-inch diameter, 32-flute Excalibur CT shallow concavity blades on 9” spacing. Each blade assembly is individually mounted on a compound angle with 6-bolt hubs and configured into a tandem design. The tandem blade configuration provides a consistent and uniform line of draft for high-speed implement tracking. This tandem design also contributes to a more uniform distribution of soil and residue verses competitive “offset disc” designs that can move residue and soil in a single direction.
Angle of Attack
Compound blade angles have been developed and incorporated to provide optimum soil penetration without applying excessive backside blade pressure to the soil. Ample fore-to-aft space exists between the front and rear rows of blades to allow high-speed soil and residue flow to settle before contacting the rear row of blades. Heavy soil and residue flow from the front blades of close-coupled competitive designs can potentially slow or stall the rotation of the rear blades, causing a “plug” or unevenness in the finished seedbed.
Center-Mounted HD Tines
Center-mounted HD tines incorporated into the frame area immediately behind the first rank of Excalibur® CT blades maintain full contact with the soil surface to initiate residue redistribution and soil leveling. The single row of 5/8” diameter x 30” length x 12” spaced tines feature adjustable angles to force residue and soil flow from the front blades downward, settling loose material before contacting the rear row of blades and finishing attachment.
Star Wheel™ Treaders
Star Wheel™ treader gangs, mounted on 6-degree angles, level the seedbed and size clods, while mixing and anchoring residue into the loose soil. Constant-flow hydraulic down pressure on the Star Wheel treader allows the attachment to maintain even working pressure across a varying field surface, resulting in a consistent, uniform finish. Many competitive units depend upon their rear attachment to control machine operating depth and thereby transmit significant weight to their rear attachment, which can result in a tight, compressed seedbed.
24/7® Conditioning Reels
Available with flat blades for maximum clod sizing in hard soil conditions or round bars for increased soil firming in loamy soil conditions, this effective component completes a superior finish to any field.
No daily grease maintenance required for the maintenance free bearings, incorporated into the Excalibur® CT gang assemblies, Star Wheel™ treaders and 24/7® conditioning reels. Spherical pivot bearing for each walking beam assembly requires no grease, along with rocker and wing hinge pivots.
