Originally launched in 2003, the HE-VA Disc Roller is a popular shallow disc cultivator on UK farms, and while the new Disc Roller Contour uses the same disc elements, it also incorporates the Special Active Transfer (SAT) system from the Roller range. Opico says this allows the machine to follow field contours, even on undulating land, and ensures even consolidation across the full working width of the machine. Contour model sizes also tie in with guidance and Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) systems. Disc section working widths of 3.25, 4.25, 5.25, 6.25m and 7.75m are available, with each machine utilising a press roller 0.25m wider than the disc section for an even, consolidated finish. Alongside the standard single row of V Profile Rings, the Disc Roller Contour ‘Twin’ model incorporates different roller options, and a twin V or twin U profile ring can be specified to suit different soils. These new roller options provide different consolidation for specific situations, which says Opico, should ensure that there is a machine suitable for every customer’s needs. Trailed and mounted versions are available from 2.25m to 7.75m with larger models due later in 2017. The trailed 6.25m machine heading for the Opico HE-VA stand at LAMMA, in January, retails at £39,104 + VAT.
