Kverneland PN - RN

Cost efficient, easy to adjust and to maintain

In-Furrow & On-Land

5 - 9 Furrows 

Cost efficient, easy to adjust and to maintain

The PN and RN models are robust semi-mounted reversible ploughs with a 200x200 mm induction heat treated frame. These Kverneland ploughs feature a centre-mounted wheel and an easy manual stepwise furrow width adjustment.

In-Furrow & On-Land operations
Kverneland PN and RN are designed for In-Furrow & On-Land operations.

Adjustments between In-Furrow and On-Land and vice-versa are hydraulic:

  • On-Land PN/RN models can also plough In-Furrow
  • In-Furrow PN/RN models can be retrofitted with an On-Land Kit 

The advantages of the PN and RN ploughs:

  • For the best durability, unique Kverneland steels and heat treatment technology are used for the entire ploughs
  • A center mounted wheel, for easy ploughing out to fences and hedges
  • Safe and smooth reversal of the plough ensured by a turnover mechanism being linked to the wheel assembly
  • Unique headstock for minimum turning circle. Cat. III or IV
  • Gentle movement between the turnover arm and the frame via plastic wear plates. No lubrification needed and less noise.
  • Easy adjustment of the wheel angle when changing the ploughing width, via a turnbuckle
  • Optional hydraulic front furrow width adjustment for In-Furrow models
  • Large clearance up to 115cm for long residues
  • Unrivalled Kverneland Auto-reset system for non-stop ploughing for PN. No maintenance. Shearbolt protections for RN
  • Extendable by 1 furrow to the maximum number of furrows indicated in the chart below
  • Possibility to fit a Kverneland packer arm
  • Optional parking stands for parking in butterfly position

Unique frame robustness PN / RN

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, no welding!

Frame availability

  • 120x200 mm main frame
  • 200x200 mm from 8 furrows

Available as:

  • 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 furrows for 100 cm interbody clearance
  • 5, 6, 7 furrows for 115 cm interbody clearance

Plough Bodies

Excellent Ploughing Quality

Unbeatable in stony conditions !

Kvernelands fully automatic non-stop Auto-Reset System is unbeatable when it comes to trouble-free ploughing in stony conditions. The clever multi-leaf spring system allows the plough legs to release over stones and other solid objects in a smooth and efficient manner. This avoids sudden jolts and possible damage. Once the obstruction is passed, the plough body automatically returns to the correct ploughing depth.

Safety compliance

With today's demands for higher output, both tractor and plough are expected to perform quicker than ever. This makes more arduous demands on the equipment, particularly on the safety systems designed to protect tractors, ploughs and drivers against the dangers encountered whenever the plough meets hidden obstructions in the ground. The Kverneland Auto-Reset system guaranties this safety high standars requirements.

Adaptable to varying soil conditions

Depending of the type of soil all Kverneland ploughs can be equipped with different leaf springs packages. For soft soils, a normal spring with 5 leaves is the best choice to obtain the perfect ploughing in stony conditions. Today, most Kverneland ploughs are delivered with the Heavy Duty springs package (HD) with 7 leaves. This will perform well in most conditions. If the soil is very hard and stony - a double leaf spring package is recommended.

Extra leaves when needed

The standard Auto-Reset system includes 7 Kverneland heat treated springs (640Kp).
For heavier to extreme soil conditions, extra leaf springs are added for up to 1400kp.
The leaves are easily fixed with one central bolt only.

Individual body release !

The Kverneland mechanical Auto-Reset system enables very plough body to release independently. A quality ploughing is therefore guaranteed. 

Minimum wear and high second hand value

Kverneland's Auto-Reset System is a quite simple construction that withstands the punishing forces year in, year out, with a minimum of maintenance. Save time and money !
Moreover, the Kverneland auto-reset system guarantees a longer life to the plough. When hitting an obstacle, the pressure on the point, frame, plough parts, decreases. The stress on Kverneland ploughs is therefore reduced. Consequently, second hand Kverneland ploughs  sell at  a higher value than competitors ploughs.
*by using an Hydraulic system, pressure would increase

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!
