Product Description

Compact Disk Harrow

A compact disc harrow with an integrated press roll, the versatile X-Press combines high speed shallow cultivations with effective consolidation.

Available as a mounted machine in 2.5m, 3m, 3.5m and 4m widths and as a trailed unit in 4.6m, 5.5m, 6.6m 8m and 10m widths, the X-Press can be used in reduced cultivation systems, to incorporate stubble or to work down ploughing in more conventional regimes.

The versatility of the reliable, well-proven X-Press is further enhanced by the ability to vary the angle of the discs ensuring penetration in hard conditions and eliminating the need to carry large amounts of ballast weight. For those who work consistent soils, all X-Press models are available with limited disc angling via three fixed settings.

The X-Press features two rows of adjustable discs. Mounted individually, 500mm diameter cultivations discs spaced at 250mm offer high rotational speed. The Pro-Active units enhance chopping and mixing and achieve a finer seedbed. With a trip height of 120mm they provide effective protection against stone damage and improved contour following at speed. A rotational armoured bearing housing increases protection. The X-Press range is available with a choice of notched cultivation discs or SoilRazor discs.

The design of the X-Press, mounted and trailed models, results in a massive amount of clearance between both gangs of discs and the rear roller to ensure that it will operate in conditions with high volumes of trash.

The Mounted X-Press comes with a choice of rear rollers. The DDL 550 roller, with its familiar shouldered press rings, consolidates the ground through to depth, leaving a fine, corrugated, weatherproof finish. If preferred, the X-Press can be fitted with an Aqueel II Roller, Cage Roller, Heavy-Duty (HD) Roller, V-Roller or Maxlift Roller. All rollers are fitted with 'sealed-for-life' non-grease bearings.

Trailed models from 4.6 to 6.6 are available with the DD 700, DDL 600 (200mm or 150mm spacing), Maxlift, HD or V Rollers, whilst X-Press 8.0 and 10.0 models come as standard with the DD 700. All rollers are fitted with 'sealed-for-life non-grease bearings.

All trailed machines fold hydraulically for transport and a rear drawbar is offered as an option on models up to 6.6m

The Mounted X-Press produces consistently excellent results, even in the hardest soils, using a tractor from as little as 70hp. The trailing kit for the Mounted X-Press, available for the Folding Wing model, allows a tractor from 125hp to pull the 4m machine.

Add an ST Bar ahead of the Mounted X-Press and the machine is transformed into a one-pass cultivator which can restructure the soil, taking out compaction caused by harvest traffic, down to a depth of 25cms. Use the machines separately or combined on a reduced tillage or plough-based system – that’s real versatility.

Product Features

Two Rows of Discs

Mounted individually, the cultivation discs are 500mm in diameter. The disc spacing is 250mm on both front and rear gangs, giving a net disc spacing between gangs of 125mm. Their rotational speed is far greater than more conventional discs. Chopping and mixing is enhanced and a finer seedbed is achieved.

ST Bar Option on Mounted X-Press

An ST Bar can be fitted ahead of the Mounted X-Press transforming the machine into a one-pass cultivator, which can restructure the soil, taking out compaction caused by harvest traffic, down to a depth of 25cm.

Pro-Active Disc Units

The Pro-Active disc units give improved protection against stone damage. The chrome vanadium steel mounts, with a trip height of 120mm, also offer improved contour following whilst maintaining a consistent depth at high forward speed.

Full disc angle adjustment
Full Disc Angle Adjustment

Disc angling is fully adjustable between 0 deg. and 25 deg. enabling you to vary how aggressively the soil is worked and ensure good penetration. Select an acute angle for maximum mixing of stubble in one pass and a shallower angle to chop down ploughing when required.

Disc Depth Adjustment

Easy front and rear disc depth adjustment provides even more flexibility to suit different conditions and applications.

DD Roller
Wide Choice of Rear Consolidating Roller

All X-Press models are available with a choice of rear consolidating roller. The renowned DD Roller, with its familiar shouldered press rings, consolidates the ground through to depth, leaving a fine corrugated finish that is weatherproof in dry or wet conditions. Other roller options including the ML, HD, Aqueel II and V Rollers are available to suit your conditions and operating needs. X-Press 8.0 and 10.0 models come as standard with the DD700.

Disc angling with 3 settings
Limited Disc Angle Adjustment

The X-Press is also available with limited disc angle adjustment via three fixed settings.
