Carrier XT 425-625 - Mounted

Heavy duty depth precision

Carrier XT 425-625 is a mounted foldable disc cultivator with discs positioned in an x-shape, available in 4.25, 5.25 or 6.25 metre working width. It can be fitted with 450 or 470mm diameter discs. It has excellent contour following and impressive penetration ability for its weight. The working depth is set from the tractor cab, enabling adaptation to varying conditions in the field.

Part of the Carrier concept

Carrier is a disc cultivator used for high speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. The wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables Carrier to handle the versatile challenges of modern farming – from ultra-shallow cultivation to a deeper incorporation. The versatility it brings to the farm saves passes, decreases machine cost per hectare and provides the best start possible for the coming crop.

It's all about angles

A main feature of Carrier XT is its hydraulically rotating disc axles. Thereby Carrier XT is able to optimize the cut-out performance at shallow depth, while increasing the depth precision at deeper working depths. Reducing the amount of soil moved and optimizing the machine weight, is important to deliver best possible results as well as minimise the diesel consumption. By adapting the disc angles to the working depth, Väderstad Carrier can do more with less.

For the farmer, this is seen in a full cut-out at shallower working depth, as well as an excellent depth keeping and reduced soil flow at deeper working depths.

Väderstad Carrier with discs according to requirement

Discs according to requirement

Carrier XT 425-625 can be fitted with either 450mm discs or 470mm TrueCut discs. Both discs produces fine tilth optimal for a stale seedbed.

The 450mm disc has small cut-outs, resulting in an intensive cultivation even at a very shallow working depth. The 470mm TrueCut disc has larger cut-outs which can handle more crop residue with increased penetration.

Intensive ultra-shallow tillage with CrossCutter Disc

Intensive ultra-shallow tillage

CrossCutter Disc performs outstanding in oilseed rape stubble and in cover crops, while also enabling great advantages in grain stubble as well as on ploughed land. Because of its disc shape and high quality Swedish steel, CrossCutter Disc provides full cultivation and intensive mixing at shallow working depth. This means that an extensive stale seedbed is created over the entire field.

Väderstad X-disc runs straight behind the tractor

X stands for x-disc

The discs are positioned in an x-shape, which enables the lateral forces to cancel each other out. The x-disc format guarantees that the machine will always run dead straight behind the tractor. This saves diesel but is also essential when using a GPS guidance system or when driving in hilly conditions.

Carrier X offers full control from the cab

Full control from the cab

To gain full control, the working depth is controlled hydraulically from the cab. This provides Carrier X with high precision and versatility on varying soil types.

The depth setting is easily carried out, without the need for top link adjustments.

Väderstad Carrier XT for harsh environments

Carrier XT for harsh environments

By incorporating slurry at the same time as it is applied, more nutrients become available for the subsequent crop. Väderstad has designed solutions to connect a third part slurry distributor head. In order to adapt to the harsh environment associated with fertiliser delivery, Carrier XT can be delivered as a slurry edition. 

The kit includes a galvanised frame, piston rod protection, a hydraulic wing lock and stainless steel hydraulic couplings. 

The result is a machine with a very long life in extremely demanding environments.
