Plough bodies | Soil engaging metal


©plus hardening process

First-class quality for long-lasting wear parts As manufacturers of wearing parts for the soil tillage industry, AMAZONE can look back on a history spanning decades. Continuous advancements in materials and production techniques, as well as our know-how in heat treatment, lies behind the plough wear metal parts of the highest quality. Carbon in its purest form, diamond, is the hardest material nature has to offer. A hardening process involving the introduction of carbon into the steel is used to increase the hardness and durability of ©plus wear parts. AMAZONE achieves, through this unique hardening process, an extremely high level of hardness on the face of parts such as mouldboards and so offers the optimum wear resistance. The reverse side remains relatively soft but at the same time extremely tough and impact resistant. This results in unique ©plus advantages: + Longer service lives + High impact resistance + Less pulling power requirement + Reduced fuel consumption + Less sticking as a result of smoother surface

The advantages of Cayros bodies

+ Complete and consistent incorporation of crop remains promotes fast and effective decomposition, encourages soil life and therefore also helps guarantee greater yields + An even surface with the finest possible crumbling makes subsequent work easier and saves seedbed preparation costs + Broad furrow clearance enables the use of wide tyres which has the extremely positive effect of less soil compaction. The incorporation of large amounts of crop remains is also promoted + A low traction requirement saves directly on fuel costs and therefore makes a considerable contribution to cost-effective use of the plough

Easy pulling from the tip

The basis for efficient ploughing is naturally to ensure the least tractor pulling power possible and thus less diesel consumed. In combination with the unique ©plus hardening process which gives a very hard and smooth surface, the clever design guarantees the ease of pull for which AMAZONE ploughs are renowned.

The Cayros shares

All Cayros bodies are fitted with specially designed shares. The special shape gives less resistance and smoother draft. The self-sharpening area has been made much thicker, thus considerably increasing the life of the plough share.

Interchangeable tip with a special profile

The interchangeable tip of the Cayros wings saves the wing blade and thus reduces wearing costs. Its shallow design, the self-sharpening, pulling power saving penetration range and the 15 mm thick side reinforcements make the interchangeable tip, due to the targeted use of material in the wear zones, extremely robust resulting in exceptional longevity.

Knife coulter

More cost-effective alternative to disc coulter, reduces wear on the plough body and also reduces lifting power requirement.

System with four times the use

All Cayros ploughs have a system from which you get four times the use. The long length ensures optimal cornering stability, which reduces fuel consumption and ensures perfect ploughing.

Deflector plates

A cost-effective alternative to skimmers when incorporating surface crop residues. With additional leg support as standard.

M0 skimmer: For universal use, from freshly ploughed pasture land to maize stubbles. M3 skimmer: Optimum performance with extreme crop residues (especially maize straw), recommended only in conjunction with large point to point clearances of 105 or 115 cm. Not available for NonStop stone safety ploughs. All-round adjustable In addition to the standard version with stepless height adjustment, the skimmers are, as an option, also available with stepless pull-in force and three step throwing angle adjustment (Standard with M3 skimmers). These add-ons are equipped furthermore with a comfortable depth adjustment system plus an additional wear area means a longer service life for the skimmer board and thus reduces the running costs.

Deflector boards

In conjunction with the skimmers, the deflector plates prevent straw (especially maize straw) from wrapping around the leg.

Subsoiler points

Using the adage ‘plough shallow and then deep loosen’ the subsoiler points break through the soil layers below the plough depth. The subsoiler points are adjustable in depth and are easily exchanged to keep the running costs as low as possible.

Disc coulters

The disc coulter also makes a considerable contribution to efficient ploughing. The disc coulter’s precise cutting action helps achieve full turning and complete incorporation of crop remains as well as effective furrow clearance. For Cayros ploughs, notched disc coulters with a diameter of 500 or 600 mm are available. The depth of the coulters can be adjusted very finely using toothed discs, the robust tapered roller bearings are well-protected in their external position and are maintenance-free. These plough models can also optionally be fitted with disc coulters in front of each plough body.

Disc coulter on standard ploughs with shearbolt protection system

AMAZONE has developed a practical toggle lever clamp for this model. This allows both sides to be adjusted at the same time. The system can also be adjusted in the direction of travel, which creates a unique free space between body and coulter (prevents blockages).

Disc coulter on Cayros V ploughs with shear bolt protection system

For Cayros V ploughs, the disc coulter is also longitudinally moveable in the same unique way. This makes for a major advantage when using Cayros ploughs where there are large amounts of crop residues. Needless to say that, during the adjustment of the furrow width, the disc coulter is also exactly matched.

Disc coulter on ploughs with stone safety release (Standard and Cayros V)

With these plough models, the disc coulter is mounted on the pivoting leg of the stone safety release. When the stone safety release system is triggered, the coulter is also released and protected from damage. Land-hold adjustment for both sides is also performed simultaneously with the well-known clamp.
