Gregoire Besson re-launch new cultivator at Cereals

Gregoire Besson will unveil its new Combimix one pass stubble cultivator, aimed at small to medium sized farms, at Cereals. The min-till Combimix is designed for use with medium to high horsepower tractors and combines tines, discs and a packer in one mounted unit. The Combimix has a working width of 2.9m and transport width of 3m. Following feedback from customers, a major new feature of the revised Combimix is a hydraulically controlled packer that is capable of being folded on top of the machine for ease of transport; this allows the Combimix to be used on smaller hp tractors from just 150hp.

Up front is a row of 5 tines to loosen soil below the pan to a maximum depth of 14 inches – depending on the tine selected. Choice of tines includes Michel 'Heliplow', standard Discordon, Eurocult or straight subsoiler and fixing choices include shear bolt, spring loaded or hydraulic auto reset.

Secondly an independently-mounted double row of 575mm discs, with 2 discs mounted per bearing for improved traction, chop, cultivate and mix trash residue. The discs have a spacing of 23cm and create a level tilth ready for the packer.

The final stage is the hydraulic packer which consolidates the ground leaving a level seedbed. As standard, the Combimix features a new 'Emopak F' roller with V Profile which is based on the standard 745mm Emopak but which offers better consolidation from a lighter weight. A 600mmm Crumbler roller for dry, cloddy soils or 540mm Diamond roller for sticky soils are also available as options. The depth of the tines is controlled by the hydraulically adjustable packer. With 'stepless' control of the machine depth an accurate working depth is achieved.

The Combimix will be available from £20,000.
