Dracula Hydro tillers for difficult soils

December 2020 | Back

New Hydro version for the Dracula combined tiller by Maschio Gaspardo, now equipped with hydraulic pistons that replace the traditional double spring shock absorbers. This constructive solution has been studied above all for tilling tough soils, since the anchor remains stable up to a maximum of 900 kg of thrust on the tip, against the 700 kg of the double spring version.

The tiller’s high power - reads a company note - ensures a constant working depth of 8 to 30 centimetres under all conditions, and is hydraulically adjusted by the operator. The tilt of the anchors has been designed to penetrate even the toughest terrain, while the frame’s high clearance offers a continuous flow of soil and residue.

The final section consists of a set of tilted discs that eliminate any ridges left by the rear row of the anchors. The final tillage is carried out by the rear roller, which levels and consolidates the soil for an optimal preparation of the seed bed. The Dracula Hydro capped discs have a large diameter of 610 mm and a thickness of 6mm; they are made with high-strength steel and provide uniform processing over the entire work surface. In addition, the concave shape of the discs ensures better mixing of the soil and residue.

The advantage of the Venetian brand’s new tiller that stands out from the others is its manoeuvring agility, both in the field and on the road, provided its the compact size (in transport mode it is 3 metres wide) and by the tyre size (700/60-R22.5).

The hydro-pneumatic control of the 3 sections allows for immediate and precise adjustment from the tractor, with the option of using the machine in different conditions and for different purposes.

Lastly, Dracula Hydro is available in the free axle versions and in the versions with pneumatic braked axle and double hydraulic line braked, in compliance with the provisions of the Mother Regulation.
