With operating widths of five and four metres, the machines can be configured with a range of shares, discs, rollers and drills to enable everything from shallow stubble incorporation through to one-pass cultivation and drilling.

Suitable for towing by mid-range tractors, both models feature four rows of tynes arranged in a staggered layout to achieve a 28-centimetre row spacing.

The 80cm frame height ensures good residue flow.

Amazone product manager Craig Hopkins said Cenius TX could be configured with two tyne overload systems: the C-Mix Super and the C-Mix Special.

“C-Mix Super tynes incorporate a pressurised spring assembly with a release force of 600 kilograms and a 300-millimetre lifting height, thereby ensuring uniform performance even under tough operating conditions,” he said.

“C-Mix Special tynes have a shear bolt safety device, making them more suitable for medium to light soils.”

Both systems can be equipped with a range of hard-wearing shares, including 350mm wing shares, 80mm tips and 80mm tips with guide plates, to suit a range of cultivation options and working depths from 8 to 30cm.

An additional row of serrated levelling discs mounted behind the tines creates a smooth soil surface.

The levelling discs can be adjusted quickly via two side-mounted spindles.

Depth guidance is achieved via the support wheels at the front of the implement and the rear-mounted roller.

“Depending on the soil conditions, TX models can be fitted with either a wedge ring, knife, tandem or cage roller, to crumble and/or reconsolidate the soil,” Mr Hopkins said.

“The depth adjustment of the support wheels and roller are synchronised via a double-acting hydraulic system.

“Alternatively, the running gear can be used to control depth if the roller is not fitted.”

The machine is raised via the hydraulic drawbar.

An optional traction control system improves traction for the rear tyres of the tractor.

“When activated, this system transfers up to 1500kg of the machine’s weight to the rear axle, thereby improving traction and reducing fuel consumption,” Mr Hopkins said.

All four models in the Cenius TX series – 4003-2TX, 5003-2TX, 6003-2TX and 7003-2TX – feature integrated centre-mounted running gear for improved manoeuvrability.

“In combination with the 550/45-22.5 tyres and hydraulic braking, road transport speeds of 40km/h are possible,” Mr Hopkins said.
