Kverneland 3400 S

On-land & In-furrow 
New Generation of Ploughs

maximise output and ploughing performance

5 - 7 furrows

High output and low maintenance costs 

The best crops need the best soil preparation.

Ploughing is for the majority of farmers one of the most efficient methods to control weeds, create humus and prepare soil for seeding efficiently. Keeping an eye on the bottom line is equally important. The burial of residues must be perfect and easy to achieve while cost must be minimized: low fuel consumption, low wearing of parts, low lifting capacities, low pull requirements. Comfort in transport and in operations is a must in modern farming. The plough must be robust and lasts long as any profitable investments.

Designed for In-Furrow and On-Land operations. Comfortable with lower lift requirements than other brands.
The headstock No 300 provides the necessary strength for a smooth reversing. Kverneland unique steel technology!

In its on-land configuration the plough’s massive offset (up to 3,85 m) allows the tractor to be positioned exactly to the drivers’ requirements.


  • easy swap from In-furrow to On-land operations. The driver has fingertip control
  • smooth turnover action thanks to an efficient parallel linkage system which hydraulically moves the plough into a balanced position
  • ideal for tractors having dual wheels or rubber track
  • unrivalled Kverneland Auto-reset system for high quality ploughing in tough conditions. No maintenance. Quick adjustment of releasing forces: unscrew 2 bolts 
  • Kverneland steels and heat treatments for the complete plough ensure trouble free working conditions and the highest second hand market value

  • automatic pulling line adjustment (Auto-line) for high performance ploughing and low wear of parts
  • optional automatic front furrow adjustment. Mechanical front furrow adjustment is standard
  • unique memory system that maintain desired furrow width settings after the reversing cycle
  • Safe transport: Kverneland Trailer Transport Solution (optional)

Kverneland “TTS” (Trailer Transport Solution)

  • The plough behaves like a trailer. Turnable cross shaft max. 45° mutual offset during transport.
  • Safe: maximum security for anything/anyone around and for the driver. No tilting out when driving in curves.
  • Easy conversion from transport to ploughing.
  • The Kverneland TTS is an option

Aero-profile legs

  • Special design for best soil flow.
  • 80 cm leg height to prevent potential blockage in heavy residues, manure, cover crops or when ploughing deeper.
  • Robust legs: pre-shaped components limiting weldings.
  • Low pulling requirement and hence fuel consumption thanks to low weight hollow legs.

Auto-reset system

  • Unrivalled Kverneland mechanical leaf spring system for Non-stop ploughing.
  • No Maintenance.
  • Legs, plough and tractor lives are protected and lengthened.
  • Quality ploughing: legs release independently one from another and come back to the correct position.
  • Easy adjustment of releasing forces: unscrew 2 bolts to add or remove springs.

Smart skimmers adjustment

  • Unique: central adjustment of skimmers working depth.
  • Quick operations: right and left skimmers adjust simultaneously.
  • High ploughing performance: the correct adjustment of skimmers contribute to a quality ploughing.
  • Disc coulters also available: plain or notched (18”/45cm or 20”/50cm)

Unique frame robustness

Importance of heat treatment

  • The frame is an essential part of the plough construction. For Kverneland quality standards, a non heat treated part is a weak part!
  • Kverneland frames are heat treated by induction twice. The temperature transfer to the steel is closely monitored. The frame gains 3 times as much strength. This unique Kverneland induction processes provides robustness and flexibility while ensuring an outstanding durability.

Stronger but not heavier

  • For the equivalent Kverneland robustness, competitors would use more steel in thickness or in dimensions, therefore producing a heavier frame.
  • Heavier frame impacts negatively pulling forces, wearing of parts, lifting capacities, tractor life time, and fuel consumption.

Long lasting

  • Weldings are also a critical weakness for a plough frame. Kverneland frames are supplied as one sole part!


Vari-Width® (Variomat) System

Stepless Vari-width® system for infinite adjustments of working width. Kverneland’s world patented system is available either with hydraulic or mechanical furrow adjustments.


  • Easy variation of ploughing capacity
  • Perfect match at all time between tractor capacity, implement and soil conditions
  • Time saving: up to 30% more capacity
  • Cost saving: up to 18% reduction in fuel consumption in relation with increased ploughing capacity
  • Better work: plough up to the hedges, fences, trees and ditches
  • Minimum wear: unique non-wearing linkage joint between the beams and the mainframe section
  • Perfect line of pull at all time. Kverneland’s Vari-width offers the correct parallel linkage along the whole plough. Therefore, lower draft requirement, minimum wear and tear.

Heat Treatment

Kverneland Heat Treatment Technology:

  • more than 140 years of experience
  • steels that withstand the toughest of conditions
  • best robustness/weight ratio on the market
  • for equivalent robustness, competitors would add more steel and therefore more weight, quicker wear, dissappointing ploughing results

Kverneland Steels:

  • Benefits from less weight:
    easier to pull/lower fuel consumption/lower lift requirement/reduced wear and stress for the tractor/more economical …
  • Benefits from more resistance:
    minimum breakage/less maintenance/lower rotation for wearing parts/time saving/highest 2nd hand plough value/longer life for the plough/more economical…

Problems always happen when the plough is being used, when the work must be done!

A Kverneland plough is a peace mind!
