Kverneland Knock-on System
Fast and easy metal exchange
Knock-on is the easiest way of exchanging parts on a cultivator: either in order to adapt the machine for the job to be done or to exchange wearing parts.
Kverneland always use steel of highest quality. Thus allowing the Knock-on system to be based on a simple locking technique: requesting only a hammer to knock on and off the parts within seconds.
The Knock-on range offers four cutting widths with shares of 80, 150, 250 and 320mm to match with various tine spacings and depths requested. This user-friendly system is able to work from 5 down to 35cm in a very economic way.
The wide choice of deflectors and tine protections allows the flexible adjustment to changing soil and weather conditions for optimum results maintaining the soil structure and saving fuel. The deflectors are locked by a single bolt.
- 10" quick exchange system per share = 90% less down time
- Easy, fast and solid design using only basic tools like a hammer
- Only one tine with a full range of shares
- Exchange of wearing metals can be done in the field within a few minutes
- Fuel consumption to be optimized
- Breaks up soil compaction and plough pans down to 35cm
- Effective incorporation of organic material
- To engage or disengage a share from the holder, it takes only a few hammer blows and 10 seconds.
- Changing 10 shares on Enduro 3.00m will take less than 1.30 minutes - instead of 20 minutes with bolted reversible shares.
- 90% down time saving
- The upper part of a share system is playing a big role in the work done in terms of incorporation, power requirement and top layer profile.
- Humidity of the soil can also be determinant for the cultivator performance; therefore adapting the tines with appropriate upper equipment is a must.
- Only 1 bolt is holding the deflector to allow a rather quick change if necessary.
- For the CLC/CTC/Enduro cultivator range, there is one point for each depth or tine spacing with the choice of shares in 80, 150, 250 and 320mm.
- For the Turbo Range, shares of 80, 150 and 250mm are available.
- From full cut or true depth, using the right share at the right depth will contribute to save fuel and money.
- FCS (Full Cut System) providing a very flat bottom profile at shallow working depth(ref. DLG Fokus test N° 6029F for CLC pro Classic).
- High quality steel of 55HRC, 80mm point of 12mm thickness, all other parts of 10mm, designed for long life.
- Knock-on parts can be used up till 75% of the initial material has gone, with about the same lifetime as a bolted system. This is a very high ratio compared to bolted wearing parts solutions for which usually only 60% can be used.
- These characteristics will encourage saving steel and energy to do it (to produce 1T of steel takes 5600.kWh – ref. Siemens)
- The Knock-on has also proven to be a low power eater by requesting a low pulling force (ref. DLG Fokus test N° 6029F for CLC pro Classic). Large economies on fuel can also be expected.
