The new FlexGrip tine on the Cruiser 9 XL, a new version of the Horsch ultra shallow cultivator, is designed to maintain a precise working depth even in most difficult conditions.

The FlexGrip has a 180kg trip force on a slightly wider spacing of 17cm, and the six-row tine machine is designed to work down to 10-15cm. The cultivator can be equipped with 5.0cm, 8.0cm or 10cm wide points with or without carbide, and Horsch is adding a 24cm wide point to the range at Agritechnica which will ensure all of the soil is moved across the working width.

Roller choice includes interlocking channel rings or press style rings and for lighter land there is a new Optiroll which is 640mm in diameter with 16cm high rubber rings.

On one of the two tandem roller setups, you can use the hydraulics to raise the rear row for a more open finish or applying pressure for greater ground contact.

There will initially be 7.0m and 9.0m models with 5.0m, 6.0m and 10m being added next year.
