Another new product coming, this time in the tillage sector is an Isobus mounted reversible plough.

The Kv 2500 i-Plough enables any relevant plough settings for perfect furrows from the tractor cabin. On board, the Isobus screen clearly shows how to adjust the plough within finger tips.

There are four essential operations carried out by the Isobus connection; ploughing, transport, marking and parking.

The i-Plough concept refers to the newly born Kv 2500 range of mounted reversible ploughs for tractors up to 280hp.

All the ploughs in the range are made from one-piece, induction heated treated main frame (120 x 200 x 6.4 mm) for optimal durability. The range is available from four to six furrows.

Self-propelled sprayers

One of the more surprising announcements was that the group is entering the self propelled sprayer market with its two model Kverneland iXdrive range. There are around 50 self propelled sprayers working in Ireland at the moment with a higher turnover of second-hand rigs compared to new ones.

It will be interesting to see if any of these new ones make it across Irish borders.

The iXdrive will be available in combination with the HSS spray boom from 27 up to 40m or the HSA 24 up to 30m aluminium spray boom.

The HSS three-part-folded spray boom profile combines a minimum of weight with maximum strength and stability. A choice of 4,000 or 5,000 gallon tanks is available.
