The Précilitor is a harrow designed to follow a plough to prepare a fine seedbed for root crops. It performs eight operations in one pass.
Stage 1: Furrow levelling
The first row of tines levels the furrows. Each tine works independently and their depth can be adjusted individually, so for example, the tines following the tractor tyres can be set deeper.
Stage 2: Soil levelling
The following row of tines incorporate a blade to create a level tilth in front of the rollers.
Stage 3: Fine levelling
A crumbler roller followed by 3 rows of tines and finally another crumbler roller produce a very fine level tilth.
Stage 4: Reconsolidation
A large diameter crosskill-roller finally reconsolidates the soil and leaves a fine level tilth ideal for seed placement.
