Kverneland AB and AD

Strong and efficient

2 - 5 furrows

For easy and efficient ploughing.

Conventional mounted ploughs equipped with stepless furrow width adjustment, manual or hydraulic. Increase your capacity by 30 % while saving 20% fuel!
Under difficult conditions one or more bodies can be locked in a parked position.
The plough can grow with the size of your tractor by adding 1 extra furrow.
Mechanical front furrow width adjustment is standard. However, a hydraulic cylinder is recommended for ploughing on side slopes to control the front furrow width "on the move".

The advantages:

  • Kverneland steel and heat treatment technology for the complete plough
  • robust and reliable construction
  • auto-reset system for non stop ploughing
  • equipped with the Variomat/Vari-width® system, 30-50cm (12”-20”)
  • furrow width adjustment is mechanic for AB and hydraulic for AD from tractor seat
  • easy to operate
  • extendable by one furrow, 2 to max.5 furrow ploughs

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!

Frame availability

  • 100 x 200 mm
  • 2 to 4 furrows, extendable by 1 furrow. Max. 4 furrow AB plough
  • 3 to 5 furrows, extendable by 1 furrow. Max. 5 furrow AD plough

Vari-Width® (Variomat) System

Stepless Vari-width® system for infinite adjustments of working width, from 30 to 50 cm (12 to 20”) depending on models. Kverneland’s world patented system is available either with hydraulic or mechanical furrow adjustments.

Benefits:

  • 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.

Shearbolt leg protections

Robust legs with 80cm underbeam clearance.
Ideal leg protections for light to the heaviest soils without stones.
Shearbolt protections with 4200 kp release force.

Heat Treatment

Kverneland Heat Treatment Technology:

  • more than 130 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, disappointing 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!
