Amazone Catros XL 3003: XL with extras

Amazone has added some extra versatility to its mounted compact disc harrows (Catros Special, Catros+ Special and Catros XL) by offering leading tools such as a straw harrow, knife roller or a levelling board. We try them out on the XL for our practical test

If you want to buy an Amazone Catros XL, your options are 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0m rigid mounted or 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0 or 8.0m semimounted, the latter having either trailed or integrated running gear. For this test we opted for the popular 3.0m version and then tooled it up with the firm’s new straw harrow or knife roller depending on what type of ground we were tackling at the time.
