Horsch was eyeing up a bigger market in Eastern Europe when it previewed the 10m and 12m Terrano FM tine-based trailed cultivators at Agritechnica last autumn, but the two models, which are now available in the UK, could also appeal to CTF farmers. The two newcomers use the same Revolver transport system as the larger Joker 10 and 12 RT. This enables both to fold to a transport width of 3.0m. The four-bar design and 28cm tine spacing is the same as that used on the smaller 5.0m to 7.0m Terrano FM models. Horsch reckons the design is ideal for shallow and deep cultivation in a wide range of conditions, and says the high clearance prevents clogging even in large quantities of harvest residue. With a recommended tractor power from 430hp to 600hp, the two cultivators join Horsch’s growing portfolio of 10m and 12m machines, and a range that also includes the Joker disc cultivator, Sprinter tine drill and 12m Pronto disc drill, which like the new Terrano cultivators all fold to 3m for transport. “Although a wide range of widths can be used in CTF, 9m, 10m and 12m systems are proving the most popular, with combines, cultivators, drills and sprayers all working on a common track width and spacing,” says general manager Stephen Burcham at Horsch UK.
