ATM SERIES (FULL & HALF TANDEM)

The cutting and soil turning action of the Tandem Disc Harrow varies with the diameter, weight and concavity of its blades, blade spacing and the angle of the Disc Harrow gang relative to the direction of travel, as well as the operating speed. In dry land farming, the Disc Harrow can help prepare overwinter stubble or prepare the land for seedbeds. In a mulch-till system that includes soil-structure improvement as part of de-weeding of lands, a Tandem Disc Harrow with 510 mm diameter discs adequate disc spacing could create a seedbed for a winter cover crop by partially incorporating harvested stubble knocking the stubs down and covering the crop residue creating a rough seedbed of overwinter residue. By managing plant residue, organic fertilizer will be increased in the soil and rain water will penetrate the soil with ease. The Tandem Disc Harrow can also run shallowly just before planting to eliminate all surface weeds and prepare seedbeds. This machine is manufactured from various materials depending on the model. The bearings are heavy duty ranging from flange-type bearings to grease-housing bearings. The gang shafts are high tension steel and the cast iron spacers are very robust. The bearings are heavy duty ranging from flange-type bearings to grease-housing bearings. The gang shafts are high tension steel and the cast iron spacers are very robust. The disc configuration is scalloped discs on the front gangs and scalloped discs on the rear gangs. 

The disc sizes vary from 510 mm to 610 mm depending on the model. Tandem disc gangs are configured like an “X” with the front gangs left and right, lead with the outside ends ahead and angle back toward the centre.
