The Rovic range of Chisel plough implements, with the tried and proven "DLB 12" tine, is ideally suited for the tough adverse conditions found on the African continent. Soil aeration without undue vertical soil movement and the ability to cut through heavy trash and residue with the optionally available coulters, makes it the Conservation Farming Aeration Implement of choice. The advanced steel curing process, coupled with a sophisticated tine production method, ensures optimal strength under the most adverse conditions, right up to the maximum working depth of 300mm. The unique leaf-spring trip-mechanism on the tine (no shear-bolt), with its minimum breakout force of 630kg, ensures optimum working in tough conditions. When the tine hits a rigid object, the leaf spring "arches" and thus trips the tine over the obstruction, while the rest of the tines remain at working depth in the ground. This simple yet effective trip-mechanism permits trouble-free working with little or no downtime (only two wearing parts).
To match the unrivalled strength of the DLB 12 tine, the implement frames are manufactured from top quality, imported high-tensile steel. The models available range from 5 to 27 tines (3-point or trailed) and rated for tractors from 50kW - 270kW. The smaller of the 3-point models is fitted with 600x14 mechanical wheels and the larger folding wing model with 750x16 mechanical wheels. The trailed model is fitted with hydraulic self-phasing 750x16 tandem wheels on both the centre section and wings. A range of optional equipment like coulters, depth control wheels or double rollers and single rollers can be fitted to assist with optimum seedbed preparation under Conservation and Conventional Farming conditions.
