Trashcutter

  • Breakthrough in trash and stubble management
  • Simple, fast and efficient
  • Low horsepower requirements
  • Minimal soil disturbance
  • Even distribution of trash
  • Low wind erosion

HOW THE K-LINE TRASHCUTTER™ SYSTEM WORKS

The advanced design of the Trashcutter lays the stubble to one side and then slices the stubble with self-sharpening discs into short lengths.

Traditional mulching methods leave stubble lying on the ground’s surface, making it extremely prone to wind erosion. By using the Trashcutter, more stubble crown remains in the soil which becomes a barrier for shielding cut stubbles. This is the key for retaining your stubble and minimising wind & water erosion.

Due to the fact that the Trashcutter simply cuts & drops, stubble & residue are left evenly distributed over the ground’s surface. This is very important for increasing trash flow through seed drills.

A unique advantage of the Trashcutter is its adjustable disc angle and down pressure, which can be altered for different applications including:

  • minimal soil disturbance in zero-till operations
  • cutting stubbles
  • shallow tillage for chemical incorporation and light weed control

The K-Line Trashcutter™ System has been extensively developed by K-Line Agriculture in conjunction with agronomists and farmers requiring a better system for stubble management.

TRASHCUTTER FEATURES

Feature

What it means for you


Self-sharpening dics on 130mm spacing

Sizes residue into shorter lengths, increasing decomposition and seed drill trash flow

Excellent for cutting through medics (or Medicago), clovers & viney weeds

Lay-bar System (patented)

lays the stubble to one side, maximising the superior cutting action of the self-sharpening disc

Low Horsepower requirements – 15hp/m*
*approximately – varies with soil conditions and operating speeds

Efficient & easy to pull, minimizing fuel costs

Hydraulic disc gang adjustment coupled with accumulator system

On the run adjustment (down pressure) for maximum cutting action

Accurate contour following

Ideal rough, undulating terrain

Simplicity of design

Low maintenance, easy to setup and reduces time in the field

Heavy-duty Bearings

Increased bearing life, low maintenance, minimal downtime

Narrow transport width

Easy road travel

OPTION OF RUNNING STRAIGHT OR ANGLED


Adjustable disc angle – when operated straight

Minimum soil disturbance, excellent in zero-tillage applications

More stubble crown remains in the soil, key for stubble retention & reduced erosion

Adjustable disc angle – when operated angled

Gives ability to do a shallow working of the soil, encouraging germination of weeds for maximum spray-out before winter seeding (running it angled)

Excellent for application of pre-emergent chemicals

“Stubble retention leads to increased microbial activity; resulting in improved retention of moisture, reduced fertiliser requirements and increased carbon content of soil.”
