The K-Line Speedtiller is a highly effective disc-tilling machine, ideal for soil conditioning in the presence of high levels of crop residues.
The Speedtiller is designed and manufactured by K-Line Agriculture, a family owned Australian company. The research and development team at K-Line designed the Speedtiller to withstand Australia’s demanding working conditions, creating the strongest and most durable machine for your soil.
The most recent model released in the Speedtiller range is the Powerflex. The 12.5 metre Powerflex took out the prestigious Tractor & Machinery Association of Australia Award at the 2015 Henty Machinery Field Days. Following on from that success K-Line released the 9.5m Powerflex in March 2016.
The Speedtiller Powerflex model combines the Speedtiller concept with many new features and benefits.
The Speedtiller has found a niche in strategic tillage systems, as a one-pass tillage tool. The combination of the adjustable rubber-torsioned jump arm system with disc undercut and the effective action of the levelling crumbler roller makes the Speedtiller ideal for stubble incorporation and seedbed preparation.
Incorporating the stubble then builds up humus levels in the soil profile. The stubble feeds the microbes in the soil, increasing soil organic matter and allowing for much-needed microbial activity. This leads to healthier soils and eventually; less reliance on outsourced nitrogen.
After several years of stubble build-up on top of the soil, there can be an increase in diseases such as crown rot. This can be carried over from season to season in standing stubbles. By incorporating stubble you can mix these stubbles into the soil, allowing them to break down and break the disease cycle.
Herbicide resistance is becoming an increasing issue especially with more summer rains. A lot of farming districts have used a strategic tillage program to help eradicate summer weeds and lessen the reliance on chemicals. This in turn gives the chemicals a longer life cycle before weeds become resistant to them.
