Gregoire Besson UK to launch the new Helidisc at Cereals 2012

Gregoire Besson UK will be unveiling the latest addition to its cultivator range at this years Cereals event. The Helidisc cultivator will be launched on stand L1312 at the show, which runs from the 13th to 14th June at Boothby Graffoe in Lincolnshire.

The Helidisc uses front and back discs that are hydraulically adjustable and controlled independently, providing a more level finish. This also increases the choice of tines that can be mounted as well as considerably reducing the overall length of the machine.

The new Helidisc is available in two models for differing conditions. The first model for use on light to medium land, has a front row on in-line discs, three rows of spring loaded Eurocult tines, another row of in-line discs, followed by a new double Emopak press. 

The tines can work 300m below the discs and the front gangs run in opposite directions to the rear providing a better mix and precise depth control. The 242mm spacing between the tines and variety of points and wings allows all of the soil to be cultivated. 

The second Helidisc model is built for work on medium to heavy land with the spring-loaded tines being replaced with either Discordon tines, which go 300mm below the discs, or with Helios (Michel) or LD straight tines, both of which go 400mm below the discs. The tines are spaced at 484mm, but the disc spacing remains the same. A choice of a double Emopak roller or a single larger roller is also available. 

“The disc-tine cultivation system on the new Helidisc has been used successfully on the Gregoire Besson Discordon for over twenty years.” Explains Managing Director of Grégoire Besson UK.

“In tests we have found that the flow of the land behind the tines becomes slightly raised, so we developed the independently adjustable depth on the front and rear discs to give maximum control in all conditions and provide a much more level finish.”

The new Gregoire Besson R6 plough will also be launched at Cereals, and a range of Rabe products will be exhibited on the stand. Visit stand L1312 at Cereals for further information or call Gregoire Besson on (01778) 423787. High-res images of the Helidisc will be available from 15th June.
