The 12m Horsch Cura ST
The 12m Horsch Cura ST.

The Cura ST from Horsch offers farmers a highly precise and durable machine for different conditions and simple handling. The full line-up now includes mounted models at 6.0, 9.0, 12.0, 13.5 and 15.0m, as well as a 24.0m trailed machine.

The new working widths are 6.0 and 9.0m provided by the Cura 6 ST and Cura 9 ST. These machines are divided into three sections, and it’s possible to fold only one side. The transport height, however, is still less than 4.0m.

The Cura ST excels due to the high hectare output and its distinct stability, as well as the solid and torsion-resistant design. This is mainly due to the closed frame construction made of square tube section. The maximum frame height of 450mm allows for harrowing even in high crops. The Cura ST is one of the core machines for hybrid farming as well as for the organic sector.

The tine pressure on the Horsch Cura ST can be adjusted from about 0.5 to 5.0kg
The tine pressure on the Horsch Cura ST can be adjusted from about 0.5 to 5.0kg.

The tines are attached and spring-loaded individually. Due to their wide bearings, they’re very stable. The working angle can be adjusted via the height adjustable support wheels. The Cura 12 to 15 ST models are carried by up to 11 support wheels. The rear support wheels can be equipped with a following harrow as an option. The tines are cranked so that the force enters in the middle. Thus, the tines keep to their track.

Moreover, there are harrow tines, also available with a carbide coating as an option, that are used as mulch seed tines with a larger tine angle for many harvest residues or extremely light soils. Also optionally, the tine pressure can be adjusted hydraulically in a continuously variable way. A hydraulic tine adjustment is standard. The Cura ST is also available with an electromagnetic valve to save one hydraulic control device. For the trailed version Cura 24 ST, the tine pressure and the position of the support wheel can be adjusted via ISObus in a continuously variable way.

The springs are attached above the frame and allow for a gentle harrowing of high populations with more clearance. The double spring – with one fine spring inside and a more rough one on the outside – guarantees a large working range with the tine pressure ranging from approximately 0.5 to 5.0kg.

The headland position is standard for the Cura 9 to 15 ST models and has several advantages. The customer can turn comfortably with slightly bent side wings without damaging the plant. In the field, the bent side wings are used in floating position. This results in an excellent soil adaption of every single part of the frame.
