Väderstad introduces two new MixIn shins for the Swift, Cultus, Opus and TopDown cultivators. The new MixIn shins have a conical shape, with a wider top and narrower bottom which gives several extra advantages in field.
Väderstad’s unique MixIn shin come equipped on all Väderstad tine cultivators, and drastically extends the mixing action of the machine. A true Väderstad innovation, the MixIn shin throws the material forwards instead of upwards, which forces the material to pass the tine twice – thus doubling the mixing intensity both in depth and lengthwise.
”The MixIn shin creates a forward moment of the soil that provides an intense lengthwise distribution of the crop residues. It also transports more soil in the driving direction and levels uneven parts of the field, such as wheel tracks, reducing the need for additional levelling passes which saves the farmer both time and fuel,”
says Magnus Samuelsson, Concept Developer at Väderstad.
The new conical MixIn shape, which is new for model year 2021, provides additional benefits for the farmer. The wider top of the shin increases mixing intensity and improves the lengthwise distribution of residues even further.
”With 50mm in the bottom and 80mm at the top, or 80mm bottom and a 120mm top, it also provides improved crumbling of clods in heavier soils. The new MixIn shin is another step in our pursuit to provide farmers with the best conöditions for an outstanding emergences,”
says Magnus Samuelsson.
Summarizing the main features:
Doubles the mixing effect
The MixIn shin throws the material forwards instead of upwards, which otherwise is the usual direction. This forces the material to pass the tine twice, doubling the mixing intensity both in depth and lengthwise.
The forward movement provides an intense lengthwise distribution of the crop residues. The mixing effect compensates for a limited straw distribution after a combine. This provides same conditions over the entire field, increasing the yield potential for the coming crop.
By doubling the mixing effect, the MixIn shin provides superior mixing throughout the working depth of the machine. This means that the cultivator takes full advantage of each centimetre of its working depth. The MixIn shin saves diesel, while improving mixing results in the field.
