Explor, the disc harrow, plant destroyer

Designed for clearing rhizome crops such as sugar cane, miscanthus or small emerging forests, the Explor can also be used for pseudo-plowing under extreme conditions: heavy soils or very dry soils. Their frame supports very powerful tractors.

Designed for clearing land

Specifically designed for clearing rhizome crops such as sugar cane, miscanthus or new growth forests, Explor can also be used for deep tillage in extreme conditions: heavy soils or very dry soils.

Whether it’s the smallest or the biggest model in the range, their chassis can accommodate very powerful tractors.

Robust design
All types of beams
The Explor is a machine that has worked in extreme terrain and plant conditions. Its imposing structure is a guarantee of solidity and durability.

In addition, by using the weight carriers you can make the machine even heavier.

Heavy duty disc gangs
The disc gangs are designed to deal with stones, holes and plants.

Square shaped and between 50 and 60 mm wide, the shafts drive all the discs at the same time.

Machined bearings
The bearings are machined in a steel block. They range from 50 mm to 60 mm and have a double tapered bearing and 6 seals. This guarantees a long service life in despite rough conditions.

The optional bearing covers further extend service life.

On-board spanner
If you need to change your discs, you’ll find the spanner on the machine. As it is a 91 mm wide hexagonal nut, we chose to fit it on the chassis.

Thanks to its extra long length, you can use more tightening power. You don’t waste time, you get back to work quickly.

Suspended axle
To improve comfort in the cab and on the road, we have added nitrogen cylinders.

These provide suspension to the wheel axle and limit tractor coupling load.

This increases the life of your equipment.

Depth control is possible by wheels
The working depth can be adjusted via the angle of the disc tracks. In this case, you do two things in one go.

On the other hand, if you want to control the aggressivity of your discs while working superficially, you can adjust the depth thanks to the stop on the axle adjustable cylinder.

Penetrating curve and mixing
Explor discs allow deep soil penetration and sufficient burial to ensure rapid soil breakdown and enrichment.

Work in hard, stony soil
Explor discs are treated to increase their resistance and durability on flint and abrasive soils while losing a minimum of material and minimizing wear.

Scrapers
Fitted as standard, scrapers are available to work in very wet conditions and on sticky soils. They scrape the soil surplus and vegetable residues which remain stuck to the discs.

Simple adjustment of
disc gang angles
Land clearer soil preparation tillage simple adjustment of disc gang angles
With just a few turns, an adjustment to the mechanical tie-rod changes the Explor working depth and pull-out capacity.

This really increases reliability and ensures easy adjustment in all conditions, without any training.
Elastomer safety
on the drawbar
Land clearer soil preparation tillage elastomer safety on the drawbar
The 2 elastomer washers at the drawbar head cushion road irregularities during transport and provide flexibility between the Explor chassis and the tractor hitch in the field.

They don’t break and they don’t need any maintenance.
Drawbar angle adjustment
& traction optimization
Land clearer soil preparation tillage drawbar angle adjustment & traction optimization
Using the the hydraulic adjustment cylinder, users can correct the drawbar angle from the cab to continuously optimise traction and keep the Explor in line with the tractor.

This cylinder can be protected by a housing shield for clearing operations in forests where trunks could hit the cylinder.
Optional forestry wheels
Clearing rhizome crops tool Optional forestry wheels
You can choose between 3 types of wheels. They are available in different widths or specifically dedicated to forestry use.

Forestry wheels are armoured to reduce risk of punctures for use in new growth forests.

In addition, the valves are siuated behind a protection to avoid impacts.
