ENGINEERED FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUR SOIL
Promoting good soil health is essential for productivity and sustainable profitability in agriculture. Minimal tillage has gained popularity due to advancements in cultivation equipment design, contributing to improved environmental benefits and soil health. New Holland's SDM and SDH compact disc cultivators are a part of this progression.
Designed to meet the needs of combinable, forage, and root crop producers, the New Holland SDM medium-duty and SDH heavy-duty disc cultivators offer exceptional versatility. They are engineered to perform effectively across various soil types and working conditions. SDM and SDH discs provide an efficient balance between operational cost-effectiveness and high productivity. These cultivators find key applications in minimal tillage, slug control, over-wintered stubble management, secondary cultivation, crop residue management, post root crop soil leveling, and seedbed preparation.
NEW HOLLAND SDM MEDIUM-DUTY DISC CULTIVATORS: LOOKING AFTER YOUR SOILS AND BUDGET
New Holland's SDM medium-duty compact disc cultivators offer a wide range of working widths, catering to farms of various sizes. Starting from 3.0m and extending up to 7.0m, these cultivators are designed to suit both small and large farms. The mounted SDM 300 R model is highly efficient and can be operated behind a tractor with just 100hp. Its uncomplicated design and straightforward setup provide accessible and cost-effective performance. For larger operations, the trailed SDM 700 T, the widest model in the range, is ideal. It can be used behind tractors with power ranging from 240hp to 320hp. The shallow concave disc design ensures low draft relative to its impressive working width, and the wide 250mm disc spacing enables efficient clearance of crop residues. Additionally, the cultivators maintain low lateral soil throw, even at operating speeds of up to 15kph, resulting in high work rates while minimizing fuel consumption across all models.
NEW HOLLAND SDH HEAVY-DUTY DISC CULTIVATORS: REDUCED TILLAGE, LONG-TERM BENEFIT
With models from 3.0m to up to 6.0m working width, New Holland SDH heavy-duty disc cultivators represent a simple but modern approach to sustainable crop production. Designed to operate at sub-soil friendly depths of 6cm to 12cm, there is a choice of three models, the fully mounted SDH 300 R and the trailed SDH 500 T and 600 T. All are fitted with large, 610mm diameter concave discs with an aggressive tilt angle for effective mixing and penetration. Operating speeds of up to 15kph can be achieved with no compromise in levelling or crop residue incorporation. The mounted SDH 300 R can be operated behind a tractor of just 140hp, its simple design and ease of set up delivering easily accessible performance economically. The widest model, the trailed SDH 600 T, is suitable use behind tractors of between 260hp and 360hp. A key advantage of the New Holland disc cultivator models is their low draft relative to working width. This, combined with wide 250mm disc spacing for good crop residue clearance ensures all models can deliver high work rates matched to reduced fuel use.
NEW HOLLAND COMPACT DISC CULTIVATORS: CONSISTENT DEPTH CONTROL. RELIABLE SOIL MANAGEMENT.
SDH disc cultivators are built to allow fast operation at speeds of up to 15kph. This can be achieved thanks to a number of design features. These include heavy-duty bearings supporting the 610mm diameter discs, robust independent disc suspension and a strong frame with a high clearance to ensure a reduced risk of blockages in extreme conditions. The build strength of SDH cultivators is part of the design story. New Holland works with growers and soil experts to ensure the entire SDM and SDH range can help improve soil management. By working just the topsoil, these disc cultivators reduce the disturbance of the soil lower down but can still operate at a depth that is sufficient to bury higher levels of crop residue, level the soil surface and improve surface aeration to promote worm activity and microbial action. The discs can also help promote the germination of weed and spilt crop seeds.
