Plough Bodies

Excellent Ploughing Quality

A complete range of bodies to suit all types of conditions.

They are renowned all over the world for their excellent ploughing quality, outstanding wear resistance and low draft requirements. Kverneland plough bodies are made of

The unique Kverneland steel. The 12 hours carburising heat treatment process result in:

  • the optimum wear resistance (sharp as a diamond)
  • the necessary flexibility to absorb impacts

Body No. 8
A general purpose body from medium to light soils. Capable of working at varying depths 15cm to 30cm (6 to 12 inches) and widths 30cm to 50cm (12 to 20 inches) with good cleaning and soil inversion characteristics.

Body No. 9
Like the No. 8, but even more highly “tuned”. Designed for wider and deeper ploughing at depths of 15 to 35 cm (6 to 14 inches). Suitable for heavier land where well turned and packed furrows are required.

Body No. 14
A plough body with a plastic mouldboard, for use in organic soils where sticking can be an acute problem. Similar performance to body No.19

Body No. 19
Specially designed for heavy soil, No.19 is also very good for burying large quantities of chopped or stripped straw. The angle of the mouldboard increases the clearance between the bodies in a very efficient manner. It also gives a totally inverted furrow which seals in the trash. The finished work is more broken, making secondary cultivation operations more efficient.

Body No. 28
Body No. 28 suits all soil types. Longer than body No.8, it creates a flatter profile for improved tilth. Its shape and action moves the soil further away from the landside, increases the furrow bottom width by as much as 25%. This allows wide tractor tyres to work in the furrow without rolling down the previous furrow. Suitable for depths of 15 to 30cm (6 to 12 inches) and widths from 35 to 50cm (14 to 20 inches).

Body No. 30
Finger mouldboard especially designed for sticky-stony soils. Capable of working between 20 cm and 35 cm deep (8 to 14”).

Vari-Width® (Variomat) System

Variation On the Move

Kverneland Vari-Width®  is a world-patented system for mechanical or hydraulic furrow width adjustments.. The Kverneland’s Vari-Width® system has been the market leader for many years. The degree of ‘finish’ of the furrows and the capacity of the plough can be adjusted by regulating the ploughing width. Two versions are available : either mechanic or hydraulic for more confort. It is hence possible to plough wider, quicker, better and at lower cost.

Advantages:

  • the system allows the optimal match between tractor, implement and soil conditions
  • increases capacity by more than 30% when varying the width from 35cm to 45 cm (14” to 18”)
  • cost saving : when increasing the capacity by 30%, the fuel consumption is not proportional. It only rises by 12 %.  Saving : 18%.
  • quality ploughing : increasing the ploughing width, gives more ‘clearance’, making it easier to handle stripped or chopped straw. 
  • convenient : it is easier to the work straight, up to hedges, fences, trees and ditches.
  • time saving : by increasing the ploughing capacity by more than 30%, the work can be finished quicker.
  • minimum wear :  unique non wearing linkage joint between the beam and the main frame section (1)
  • perfect line of pull : Vari-Width® system has the correct parallel linkage along the whole length of  the plough. Therefore, you benefit from lower draft requirements and less wear and tear.

 (1) The system consists of a robust 24mm bolt, a distance tube, two special heat-treated cones and hardened replaceable bushes. The heat-treatment of high quality steels, and exacting manufacturing accuracy, guarantee perfect beam and body alignment with minimum wear.
