LEMKEN launches Rubin 10, an implement that, despite its large disc diameter of 645 mm has EU-wide road approval for speeds of up to 40 km/h
With the help of a ball coupling or drawbar eye, the new compact disc harrow can be hitched. A hydraulic support is available to ease the process of attachment and detachment.
From a mere soil depth of seven centimetres, thorough incorporation across the full surface width is possible with the help of two rows of serrated concave discs. Moreover, despite the large volumes of organic matter, the 14 cm line spacing ensures blockage-free work. Each concave disc of the Rubin 10/1000 is equipped with an overload protection with damped kickback, which reduces loads on the frame.
Another notable advantages of the Rubin 10 is the pendulum-type suspension that featured its working sections feature, in order to ensure optimal following of the field contour.
While working on uneven or slopey terrain, the optional iQ-Contour pendulum compensation guarantees optimum surface adaptation. In addition, the hydraulic depth adjustment makes it possible to respond to changing conditions and the working depth can be changed while driving. During the turning process, the implement is supported by the roller, which has particularly strong bearings. Furthermore, the wide contact area of the machine enables it to be firmly supported, in turn minimising soil compaction.
An interesting fact about the Rubin 10 is that despite its large working width, the machine does not require an expensive system carrier. This is because the Rubin is folded in from the cab, with the roller’s patented folding system ensuring that the width is reduced to three metres and the height to four metres, to meet the requirements for road transport throughout the EU. Tractor and implement can hence be flexibly deployed and are safe on the road even at a speed of 40 km/h.
