The new Väderstad Carrier XT 525 has a working width of 5.25m.

Väderstad has added the Carrier XT – used for high-speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation – to its portfolio of disc cultivators.

Hydraulically rotating disc axles help to increase the disc angle towards the soil, so penetrability is maximised. This allows a full cut-out at a shallower working depth or reduced soil flow at deeper working depths. Both factors contribute to lower diesel consumption.

The Carrier XT can either be fitted with a 450mm disc, 470mm TrueCut disc or the ultra-shallow CrossCutter Disc. Each disc is built from high-quality Swedish V-55 steel, ensuring a high wear resistance and long-lasting field performance.

The Carrier XT is available in three different working widths: 4.25m, 5.25m or 6.25m, and can be delivered as trailed or mounted versions. All Carrier XT models can be equipped with a range of both single and double packer options.

The new Carrier XT will be available to order from October 2022.
