Supporting the existing 4.0m to 7.5m trailed models, depth adjustment is controlled hydraulically from the front cylinders, and turning on the front wheels and rear rollers reduces headland compaction.

Working at speeds of around 15km/hr, potential outputs are up to 18ha/hr. Disc diameter is 510mm, underbeam clearance is 550mm and transport dimensions are 3.0m (width) and 4.0m (height). Both can travel at 40km/hr.
