Schwenkbares Mittelfahrwerk – laufruhig und wendig! (1) CatrosXL8003-2TX_GD501_Valtra_d0_kw_P7170607_d1_210816

Centre bogey chassis – smooth running and easily manoeuvrable!

The base execution of the Catros-2TX trailed machines, in 7 m, 8 m and 9 m working widths, includes a central transport axle. This is characterised by its smooth travel because the weight of the running gear is split evenly between the disc modules and the rear rollers. Catros-2TX machines are extremely manoeuvrable due to this central running gear.

Komfortable Arbeitstiefeneinstellung (1) Catros-plus-8003-2TX-Super_Case_d0_kw_iDJI_0062_d1_160901

Comfortable working depth adjustment

The working depth of the Catros-2TX is adjusted hydraulically as standard, or manually as an option. The stepless setting of the cylinders causes the mounting point of the disc modules to turn, thereby changing the working depth. So, when changing the working depth, any readjustment of the support wheels is not necessary.

CatrosXL 03-2TX

XL efficiency brought to stubble tillage

The CatrosXL 03-2TX means that an XL variant with a working depth of up to 16 cm is also available in the trailed compact disc harrow segment with a bogey chassis. Due to the large 610 mm discs and the large distances between the rows of discs and between the last row of discs and the roller, the XL variant of the Catros 03-2TX is characterised above all by its high level of passage for organic matter.

  • CatrosXL 7003-2TX, 7.0 m working width
  • CatrosXL 8003-2TX, 8.0 m working width

Smart Frame System for Catros 03

The Smart Frame System from AMAZONE is a completely new form of working depth adjustment for compact disc harrows. The complete row of discs is turned to adjust the working depth. The discs are either turned away from the frame to work deeper or up towards the frame to work shallower. In this respect, the main frame always remains parallel to the ground.

Smart Frame System für Catros 03 (1) Vektor_1_16_9
Simple and uncomplicated setting and adjustment of the working depth

  • Completely independent depth adjustment of the front tools and main working section
  • The first and second row of discs always work at the same depth
  • Convenient for a quick change of the working depth, e.g. in order to work deeper in tramlines or on the headland

Smart Frame System für Catros 03 (3) Vektor_2_16_9

Huge through passage, always perfectly adapted to the working depth

  • The distance between the discs and the main frame automatically increases the deeper you work. When the working depth is increased, the discs are turned away from the frame and the rear roller.

A top argument for the Catros 03 is the Smart Frame System with flexible working depth adjustment of the individual tools

  • Independent adjustment of the front tool and the disc
  • Independent adjustment of the front tool and the disc in relation to the frame

  • The Smart Frame System offers maximum comfort in combination with the infinitely variable hydraulic working depth adjustment
  • There is no need to leave the cab to change the working depth
  • The scales display the current settings and are perfectly visible from the tractor seat

Perfect interaction of the front tool, discs and roller!

1. Easy depth adjustment of the base machine
Models in the Catros 03 series feature a unique of working depth adjustment concept. The roller has a fixed connection with the main frame. The two rows of discs are completely rotated to adjust the working depth.

  • Comfortable working depth adjustment, as the main frame remains in the same position.
  • Blockage-free in extreme conditions. Turning the rows of discs leaves more space between the discs and the frame and roller.

2. Flexible working depth adjustment of the front tools
AMAZONE offers the right tool combination for all conditions with a wide selection of front tools.

  • Independent adjustment of the front tool and the disc
  • Independent adjustment of the front tool and the disc in relation to the frame

3. Independent depth of the roller and the rear harrow
With more than 10 different rollers and therefore probably the widest roller range on the market, AMAZONE offers the ideal roller for every soil type. The various rollers ensure optimum reconsolidation according to individual requirements. The working depth of the roller is independent of the working depth of the discs, so there is no need for time-consuming setting and adjustment of the height!

Äußerst niedriger Kraftstoffbedarf (1) CatrosXL8003-2TX_GD501_Valtra_d0_kw_P7170692_d1_190731

Outstandingly low fuel consumption

Working speeds from 10 to 18 km/h are not a problem with the Catros and Certos compact disc harrows. This enables you to achieve incredibly high work rates and keeps the working time down to a minimum. However, the low costs for fuel, wear and tear and repair are also key factors for profitable farming.

CatrosXL-Scheiben – für große Pflanzenmassen (1)

CatrosXL discs – for large amounts of organic matter

The 610 mm serrated and fine serrated CatrosXL discs allow a deeper cultivation but still offer maximum mixing. The perfect penetration even under most arduous conditions guarantees working depths up to 16 cm so that a homogeneous mixing is achieved.

  • Working depths from 5 to 16 cm
  • 610 mm disc diameter/fine or coarse serrated
  • Large spacing between the second row of discs and the roller
  • Optimal for incorporating catch crops and grain maize residues

No lubrication ever again – thanks to the maintenance-free disc bearings

With no need to lubricate the disc bearings, this results in a significantly reduced overall maintenance time. Face seals have been used for decades in road construction equipment where rollers on the running gear of caterpillar-tracked vehicles have to be effectively sealed and work with complete reliability under the toughest of operational conditions. 

The benefits

  • Maintenance-free disc bearings with face seals and life-long lubrication
  • Maintenance-free overload protection via rubber spring elements
  • Individual disc suspension for optimised contour following and excellent through passage

  1. 2-row angular contact ball bearing
  2. 2 x seal ring (O-Ring)
  3. 2 x cast rings with face seal
  4. Face seal built into conical seats
  5. Gear oil filled housing
  6. Proven 1,000,000 times over!

Aggressively angled discs

The Catros+ and CatrosXL discs are mounted especially aggressively with an angle of 17° for the front row of discs and 14° for the rear row of discs. This ensures a smooth transfer of the soil/organic matter mix from the first to the second row of discs and results in first-class mixing of soil and plant material. Compared with flat angled discs, the discharge angle in this aggressive disc arrangement is noticeably smaller. In this way, the moved soil/organic matter mix is redeposited on the soil surface well ahead of the rear roller.

  • Utilising the slotted holes, the outer discs can be adjusted for depth to ensure a clean join up between one pass and the next.

Perfect – the individually suspended discs

On all models, be it a Catros+, CatrosXL or Certos, each individual disc is suspended from the frame on elastic sprung rubber buffer blocks. This is much better than in machines with a rigid disc suspension, as each concave disc can individually follow the ground contours, meaning that wheel tracks are not simply just filled in but worked intensively. This makes for a consistent shallow tillage, even if the soil surface is uneven. At the same time, the individual suspension of the discs enables the optimum passage of large amounts of organic matter in comparison to machines where the discs are mounted in pairs, thereby increasing the through-flow.

Sicher und absolut wartungsfrei! (1) Catros_Boden_Stein_170818_2

Reliable and absolutely maintenance-free!

The elastic sprung rubber buffer blocks for suspending the discs, not only ensure optimum contour following, but also act as overload safety protection on each individual disc. The large-dimensioned sprung rubber buffer blocks are maintenance-free and feature a long spring deflection that provides you with peace of mind, even in stony ground.
