Kuhn’s new Performer deep tine-disc cultivators are ultra-versatile machines designed for surface or deep work in ‘one pass’.

Kuhn's new Performer range of deep trailed tine-disc cultivators provide maximum cut and straw incorporation even after grain corn.

One of Kuhn’s flagship developments in the minimum tillage domain, the Performer range of cultivators is capable of tilling in a single passage in diverse conditions. 

The new Performer 4000 and 5000 deep trailed tine-disc cultivators provide maximum cut and straw incorporation even after grain corn.

Kuhn says Performer cultivators are highly versatile, with the ability to adapt to requirements. They can work using either discs or tines and can also function without the roller.

Available in widths of 4 and 5 meters for tractors up to 500 hp, the Performer has an articulated drawbar, 2 rows of independent discs (10cm working depth), 4 rows of tines (35cm working depth), a row of levelling discs, and a new HD-Liner 700 roller. All settings are hydraulic.

The 2 rows of independent, 510mm, small notched front discs are hard wearing for high performance cutting and independently adjustable from the tractor cab.

They are designed to cut up residues and roots in order to facilitate the tines’ role of soil mixing, and improve trash burial.

The disc gang boasts 560 mm under-beam clearance which enables it to pass in any type of residue.

The tines are spaced at 28cm for optimum mixing and the 8cm under-frame clearance provides maximum passage capacity.

Curved shaped tines optimise mixing capacity.

In addition, a wide range of wear parts is available: the 50 mm point, for example, which enables the tine to carry out deep down soil loosening with no power requirement. A tine is located behind the wheels when working without the roller.

The levelling discs can be adjusted from the tractor cab.  They are mounted on a curved arm which is equipped with an elastomeric safety system for protection in stony ground.

The new HD-Liner 700 roller has been designed for the most extreme jobs (residues, sticky soil). With its heavy weight of 225 kg/m and its V-type profile it ensures a deep down effect.

It leaves a non-pressed area between the roller discs to increase water infiltration and reduce run-off.

Its notches and large 700 mm diameter (biggest on the market), make it economical in terms of power requirement.

All discs and tines are mounted without lubricator. They are made of forged steel for extra strength.

All Performer adjustments are made hydraulically, and it folds down to a width of 3 m for transport.
