Bednar SwifterDisc XN3000

The Bednar SwifterDisc XN3000 is a mounted disc cultivator used for seedbed prep by loosening surface layers, uniformly cutting and mixing crop residues, and disrupting settlement and compaction to minimise conventional tillage.

Featuring the Twin-Disc system in which each arm is fitted with a pair of discs individually anchored on rubber mountings with zero maintenance bearings, the SwifterDisc XN is designed for lifetime reliability. It’s lightweight with a working width of 3m and depth of 2-12cm. The shallow tillage means greater humus content in upper soil creating more permeable soil, which fast stubble tillage maintains greater humus content in the upper soil , resulting in more permeable soil with fine crumbling characteristics, a flatter field and no clods.

The SwifterDisc XN truly is an all-purpose tool for stubble tillage, soil press and intercropping and there is an Alfa Drill option to drill covering crops. It’s high speed and one-pass efficiency means fewer hours on the field and reduced costs.

The machine tilts on the linkage making it easily transportable.

The Bednar Swifter SO_Profi is a modern single pass seedbed cultivator with a suspended working frame capable of working speeds at speeds up to 15km/h. It also benefits from replaceable internal working sections and an optional finish cross-kill for better seedbed consolidation.

The machine can be used both in a conventional farming regime and in minimisation systems.
