The Veles-Agro cultivator KPG-11 is actively used by farmers for treating the upper layers of soil before planting and cultivation of leas. The design of this agricultural equipment performs two processes at once: a harrowing and packing of soil. Cultivator KPG-14 is suitable for use in areas where soil resistivity is up to 0.05 MPa, and its humidity is not more than 27%.
Design features of KPG-11
On request of a client, KPG-11 can be equipped with lancet type shanks with dimensions of 180 to 330 mm. The size of shanks will vary the amount of working parts that are placed in rows. Such a thoughtful placement of working parts ensures a smooth work of cultivator without clogging even if there are a number of residues of thick stalked crops.
The spring cage roller of KPG-11 helps to level the surface of field. The angle of attack of the teeth can be easily adjusted depending on conditions. This functional element is located in the rear side of working parts of cultivator. The KPG-11 also has tubular rollers that completely level the surface of field by crushing clods of land.
