Roots out problems

Written by  Staff Reporters

Austrian manufacturer Pöttinger has introduced the new Durastar narrow share for its Synkro and Synkro-T, mounted stubble cultivators.

The new share is 40mm wide, with an elongated profile, which negates the need for separate guide plate that is typically required for a narrow share.

In use, soil can be intensively loosened to a working depth of 35cm, which means that plough pans or compacted sub-surface layers are broken up. This action results in the long-term improvement of the soil structure, drainage, oxygen absorption and root penetration.

Also introduced in late 2020, the Durastar Plus duck foot share, features a highly wear-resistant cutting edge fitted with cemented carbide tips. Available for the three gang SYNKRO 1030 stubble cultivators, service life is said to be up to four times greater than the Classic duck foot share.
