Kverneland EG - LB

Save Time, Fuel And Money

3 to 6 furrows

Highly efficient ploughs for medium to heavy soils

Unique Kverneland steels and heat treatments for the complete plough ensure trouble free working conditions and the highest market second hand value for Kverneland ploughs.
Robust ploughs, lighter than competitors'.

The EG/LB ploughs are available as a standard 3-4 furrow version with a 100 X 200 mm main frame. 
The heavy duty 4-6 furrow version features a 120 X 200 mm main frame, a reinforced front section and the 300 series headstock.

Advantages :

  • unrivalled Kverneland Auto-reset system, no maintenance for EG. Shearbolt protection for LB
  • Variomat, Vari-Width® system for easy On the Move working width adjustments, and efficient and better ploughing performances 
  • optional automatic front furrow adjustment. Mechanical front furrow adjustment is standard
  • unique memory system that maintain desired furrow width setting after the reversing cycle
  • Packomat compatible
  • wide range of accessories
  • extendable by 1 furrow from 3 to max. 6 furrow plough

Unique frame robustness EG / LB

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 200mm with head stock 200
  • Heavy Duty version: 100 x 150mm with head stock 300
  • available in 3 to 6 furrows, depending on interbody clearance; extendable by 1 furrow max. 6 F.  

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!
