Exclusive 5-Step Process

Exclusive 5-Step Process

  1. Capture and Slice
    Excalibur® VT (Vertical Tillage) blades, with their distinctive scalloped edge, capture and slice residue into planter-manageable sizes. This exclusive, 32-flute design easily penetrates soil, creates small clod size and begins the soil and residue mixing process. 7 inch blade spacing on front gang enhances optimal soil displacement.
  2. Control and Distribute
    Adjustable mid-mounted tines on 7 inch spacing drive soil and residue to ensure consistent flow of material. During this process, additional clod size reduction takes place, as well as improved residue distribution across the width of the operation, resulting in more consistent soil and residue conditions.
  3. Cut and Remove
    In this high-speed process, adjustable gang angles with Excalibur VT blades (on 8” spacing), remove the maximum amount of uncut soil at shallow depth settings, while minimizing furrowing and ridging for a smooth field finish. The adjustable gang angle gives you the choice to move soil laterally or to leave more residue.
  4. Mix and Anchor
    Exclusive to KUHN Krause, rotary Star Wheel™ treaders aggressively mix soil and residue, pulverize large clods, remove soil from disturbed root balls and anchor residue into the soil surface.
  5. Size and Firm
    The proven 24/7® soil conditioning reel delivers clod sizing and firming for this high-speed operation.

Adjustable Gang Angles

True vertical tillage is maintained with the 1° to 5° gang angle, while the XTended 6° to 8° gang angle offers more aggressive tillage action. Optional on-the-go hydraulic adjustment allows the operator to adjust front and rear gangs on the same angle or independently, varying front to rear angles to match a variety of agronomic goals. These shallow angles prevent soil roll and inversion, distinguishing the Excelerator’s performance from competitive units based on older disc harrow technology with typical gang angles from 10° to 22°.

Excalibur® VT Blade Spacing

Proven 22", 32-flute Excalibur® VT blades cut residue and maintain a sharp edge over time. The Excalibur blades are configured in a combination spacing with 7" front spacing to enhance optimal soil displacement, while 8"rear spacing maintains performance in adverse conditions.  The unique design of the Excalibur VT blades minimizes furrowing and ridging, leaving a smooth field pass-to-pass.

Mid-Mounted Tines

Adjustable mid-mounted tines on 7-inch spacing drive soil and residue to the ground to ensure consistent flow of material.  During this process, additional clod size reduction takes place, as well as improved residue distribution across the width of the machine, resulting in more consistent soil and residue conditions.

Quality Finishing

Star Wheels Field.jpg

Exclusive Star Wheel™ Treaders

Aggressively mix soil and residue, pulverize large clods, level and anchor residue into the soil surface. This action protects residue from blowing winds or washing rains, and begins the decomposition of residue into valuable organic matter.

The Star Wheel treaders assist in breaking out any remaining uncut soil between blade paths providing a smooth, even surface for planter row units to place seeds consistently in the seed zone. Constant flow hydraulic-adjustable gangs are spring cushioned to contour over varying field conditions, evenly distributing residue across the soil surface for a uniform finish.

Heavy-Duty 24/7® Conditioning Reel

The proven 24/7 soil conditioning reel delivers clod sizing and firming for this high-speed operation. The 24/7 reel also offers the convenience of “floating” with a simple in-field adjustment, allowing continued operation in higher soil moisture conditions. Two heavy-duty reel options are available. Choose flat blades for maximum clod sizing in hard soil conditions or round bars for increased soil firming in loamy soil conditions, this effective component completes a superior finish to any field.
