Teres 300 mounted reversible plough
A new league of mounted ploughs – higher speeds with minimum wear
With the Teres 300 mounted reversible plough, AMAZONE is offering a new mounted plough with 4, 5, and 6 shares for tractors having a power rating up to 300 HP. The Teres 300 V, with hydraulic working width adjustment, or the VS with hydraulic working width adjustment and hydraulic stone release system, are equipped with the variable furrow width adjustment as standard. The plough is characterised by its simple adjustment, by its exceptional light pull and a perfect working profile. In addition, the new SpeedBlade plough bodies ensure reduced wear costs, even at higher speeds.
Plough bodies meticulously thought-through – SpeedBlade for improved performance
The new SpeedBlade plough body, with its patented extra-large front shin on the mouldboard, makes for minimal wear on the main mouldboard. The main wear point automatically shifts further and further back towards the centre of the plough body as the working speed increases from say 6 km/h up to 10 km/h. As a result, the main wear point of the SpeedBlade body is on the enlarged front shin of the mouldboard and not back on the main part of the slatted or solid mouldboard, even at these higher forward speeds, meaning, therefore, that only the worn front shin of the mouldboard needs to be replaced initially on the Teres when used at higher speeds. This saves enormously on wear costs when compared with traditional plough bodies.
Another detail with great effect: the point covers the wing, meaning that the joint is protected by the point. Thanks to this clever join up, no plant residues or baler twine can get entangled. In addition, the open frog prevents soil from sticking under the frog due to its profile so that the maximum ease of pull on the plough body is maintained.
The unique ©plus hardening process provides the basis for high quality during the manufacture of Teres wearing metal parts and is a result of the additional introduction of carbon. For example, a very high hardness and thereby a smooth surface is achieved on the front of the mouldboard which ensures a long service life. The reverse side remains, however, relatively soft and is therefore extremely tough and impact resistant.
The SpeedBlade plough body range offers a selection of different slatted and solid mouldboard profiles depending on the application and objective. The sophisticated design of the plough bodies combined with the advantages of the ©plus hardening process ensure a low pulling power requirement, thereby reducing fuel consumption.
The wide furrow clearance is another big plus of the SpeedBlade bodies, especially with the increasing use of wider tractor tyres.
Simple, comfortable and precise adjustment for a perfect working profile
The Teres 300 V and VS is fitted with infinitely-variable hydraulic working width adjustment and front furrow adaption as standard. This means that the front furrow can both be conveniently adjusted from the cab, and also adapted to suit varying soils and when working on inclines. The driver can also very easily adjust the working width hydraulically and infinitely-variably from 33 cm to 55 cm per body using the tractor hydraulics. The new AutoAdapt automatic front furrow adjustment offers a huge advantage in terms of comfort and precision. This means that the front furrow is also automatically adjusted precisely when the overall working width is changed on Teres ploughs. This perfect adaption is carried out via the parallelogram and via the hydraulic connection between the working width cylinder and the front furrow cylinder. This generates perfect matching up of the ploughing when changing the working width, thus producing a tidy working profile. In addition, AutoAdapt also has a positive effect on the fuel consumption, since the pull line and the angle between the plough and the lower link cross shaft does not change.
The working depth adjustment is carried out either mechanically or hydraulically via the support wheel. AMAZONE offers the new Teres ploughs with both side-mounted pendulum support wheel and combination support wheels, as well as the pendulum support wheel at the rear. There is a range of various different tyres with differing diameters and tyre profiles in the Teres range to provide precise depth control and reliable self-propulsion.
Overload safety device for extreme applications
There are two variants for the Teres when it comes to overload safety protection. One is the shear bolt overload safety device, having a shear force of 6,200 kg. The other is the optionally available hydraulic overload safety protection which also ensures smooth and material-protective working in arduous operating conditions. The maximum lift stroke is 40 cm, so that the bodies can also avoid large obstacles, even at a deep working depth. In addition, the bodies can also deviate to the side. The plough body is gently pushed back into the soil via the hydraulic cylinder. The trigger force decreases as the lift height increases. Trip forces of up to 2000 kg can be infinitely adjusted either centrally or separately on each individual body, depending on the operating conditions. As an additional safety feature, each plough beam also has a separate shear bolt.
Highest levels of durability and long service life
The sturdy tubular beam, 150 x 150 x 8.8 mm gives the Teres a high level of rigidity whilst maintaining a light weight. The ProtectShaft cross shaft, carried in bearings, with integrated lower link balls ensure low levels of wear and maximum durability. The pivot bearings have a dampening effect and protect the plough on the headland and when driving on the road. Thanks to the integrated balls, the durability of the cross shaft is increased markedly on account of the larger diameter.
The 130 mm turnover shaft, which is hollow, permits the use of two bearings of the same size. This markedly increases durability. In addition, the benefit of the hollow axle is that the hydraulic lines can be routed neatly through it.
On many ploughs with larger working widths, it is necessary to swivel in the plough before turning to increase the ground clearance. The Teres therefore has a frame swivel cylinder. The gentle SmartTurn turning system actuates the frame swivel cylinder according to the specific working width.
Additional special equipment for perfect work
Optional soil engaging tools allow the new mounted reversible plough to be universally adapted to all operating conditions. For example, various skimmers or trash boards are available for the clean incorporation of large amounts of organic matter. Additional landside protectors can be attached to the shares to ensure better plough guidance on slopes.
An optional sword landside, which protects the edges of the front shin of the mouldboard from wear and cuts a clean furrow wall, is ideal for regions with stony and heavy soils. Disc coulters can be fitted to the last body for an exceptionally clean furrow clearance.
For simultaneous reconsolidation, AMAZONE offers the Teres 300 with a swivel press arm for working with a packer.
