CREATE THE IDEAL SEEDBED
Create the Ideal Seedbed
The 5635 field cultivator provides increased residue flow through the five rows of shanks in high residue conditions.
Uniform cultivation with the split-the-middle sweep pattern removes green growth leading to better seed-to-soil contact
- Enhance Seedbed Condition
The 24/7® leveling systems create a smooth, level seedbed surface for reduced planter row unit bounce, providing consistent seed spacing and planting depth.
- The first three ranks of shanks till the full sweep width, while the fourth and fifth ranks till the middles creating a split-the-middle sweep pattern
- Six-inch shank spacing provides maximum tillage action and uniform soil, residue and herbicide mixing
- Front-to-rear frame clearance of 139” allows the 5635 field cultivator to handle high volumes of residue.
The exclusive KUHN Krause floating hitch system precisely gauges tillage depth for rolling terrain resulting in fast, even emergence. Uniform tillage depth creates consistent soil moisture in the seed zone allowing seeds to draw moisture from the surrounding soil at the same rate. This enhances even seedling emergence, which is critical for maximizing yield potential. Conventional hitch designs do not contour to rolling terrain, gouging deeper on hilltops and running too shallow in valleys. This can cause uneven emergence and immediately affects final yield potential.
Floating Hitch Advantages
The KUHN Krause floating hitch features up to 57% fewer wear points than conventional designs. Fewer moving parts mean less chance for a breakdown during the critical seedbed preparation season. In field position, the 5635 contours over rolling ground conditions, then transforms to a rigid, self-leveling style when raised to transport position. The floating hitch system raises the gauge wheels off the ground during transport. This provides greater machine stability and control as compared to conventional floating hitch designs. Conventional designs generally produce “caster wobble” and may become unstable during transport, especially at high speeds.
