Joker with Levelling Board

Tillage-Live visitors will see Horsch’s new Joker 6 RT with levelling board in action for the first time following its debut at Cereals 2014. Available in 6m and 8m models, the new Joker RT features a hydraulically operated levelling board that enables stubble and ploughed land to be cultivated with the same machine.
The board comprises a row levelling paddles at the leading edge of the RT’s frame and adds greater flexibility to the machine. “We’re not just seeing a move to greater working widths but also a desire to do more operations with one machine,” explains Stephen Burcham, general manager of Horsch UK. “With the latest Joker RT, you can cultivate stubble and then lower the levelling board to use the same machine on directly onto ploughed land.”
The new Joker 6 RT and 8 RT also feature a longer frame to provide room for a double packer while more space behind the cultivation discs provides more time for the soil to settle. The transport wheels have been moved from the rear to the centre for a more balanced machine when moving on the road.
