Väderstad CrossCutter Disc Wins Machine of the Year 2018
The new and unique Väderstad CrossCutter Disc is awarded the honourable prize, Machine of the Year 2018. The award was presented at the world’s largest agricultural fair, Agritechnica in Hannover, Germany on November 14, 2017. The CrossCutter Disc is awarded as Machine of the Year in the Tillage category.
The award, Machine of the Year 2018, was handed out from a jury of European agricultural journalists. Crister Stark, Chairman of the Board of The Väderstad Group, accepted the award at the official ceremony at Agritechnica.
“At Väderstad, we are very proud and glad that CrossCutter Disc is awarded as Machine of the Year 2018. Equipping CrossCutter Disc on the disc cultivator Väderstad Carrier gives a very intensive ultra-shallow tillage, providing great agronomic benefits to the farm”, says Crister Stark.
The unique CrossCutter Disc is intended for intensive ultra-shallow tillage at 2-3cm (3/4” – 1 1/4”) working depth. Because of its disc shape and high quality Swedish steel, the CrossCutter Disc provides a full cut-out and intensive mixing at ultra-shallow working depth.
“The CrossCutter Disc performs outstanding in canola stubble and in cover crops, while also enabling great advantages in grain stubble, as well as on cultivated land”, says Mattias Hovnert, Sales & Marketing Director at Väderstad AB, Sweden and continues:
The CrossCutter Disc works very intensively with a low horsepower requirement, it is a versatile implement that can work at shallow working depth in oilseed and cereal stubble at a high speed of up to 20 km/h.
The Väderstad CrossCutter Disc was presented as the winner for Machine of the Year 2018 at the official award ceremony at Agritechnica on November 14th.
