Vicon Compactiller

Available in working width of 3 to 7m, the Compactiller is ready for high performance.

Stubble cultivation is of major importance within conservation tillage: It incorporates weeds and volunteer cereal seeds into the soil with an intensive mixing and promotes their germination for a more efficient subsequent treatment.

The even incorporation of the straw presents a key factor for seed germination.Therefore, Vicon has designed the Compactiller to comply with these requirements, but also to offer the farmer a versatile machine which is ready for shallow as well as for deeper cultivation.

There are three different models:

Compactiller mounted

Compactiller F as folding mounted model 

Compactiller T as semi-mounted model: 4m to 7m

The Advantages:

  • Compact and sturdy
  • Good penetration and cutting quality
  • Simple adjustment
  • Perfect cutting angle
  • Long lasting discs
  • Maintenance-free bearings

Highlights

Sturdy Frame and Reinforced Headstock

  • Extremely sturdy - the Compactiller is fitted with a frame well-proven with the Vicon cultivator range.
  • Reinforced headstock and a frame size of 100 x 100 x 8 mm, the Compactiller can be equipped with the heaviest roller.
  • The brackets of the roller are fixed at the front bar of the frame for a better weight transfer during road transport and also at higher driving speeds.
  • Due to the small distance between the disc sections, the Compactiller requires reduced lifting capacity.

Maintenance-free Bearings

  • Each angled arm is fitted with a large maintenance-free double ball bearing and 35 mm axle. This high-quality bearing is able to carry heavy radial and axial loads.
  • Special protection on the side of the arm is achieved by a special seal of 5 sealing lips and by the joint protecting the bearing.
  • On the other side the disc is protected against dust by an O-ring.
  • The disc hub is fixed onto the arm by a bolt and special washers that prevent any loosening. The bolt is protected against soil by its position inside the arm

Perfect Cutting Quality

  • The upper part of the arm is fitted with special brackets to avoid any lateral movement: the cutting angle is fixed to ensure an optimum cutting quality even under the driest conditions.
  • The rear disc section operates offset to the front unit to provide optimum performance and trash incorporation
  • A rubber shock system adjusted to the size of the disc and working speed.
  • The maintenance free arms are mounted between rubber buffers to absorb any shock loads from contact with unforeseen obstacles.
  • A disc of large diameter (570mm) in order to achieve a perfect cutting quality even at a shallow working depth
  • This increase in diameter allows ease of operation in the highest volumes of vegetable residues.
  • The notched discs improve its penetration and rotation irrespective of any plant residues.

Rear Rollers

There is a large choice of rear rollers.

  • To meet the various soil specifications
  • To re-consolidate the soil
  • To mix the soil, straw and residues
  • To meet the lifting capacity available
