Kverneland introduces new mounted plough series

In response to increasing tractor power, Kverneland has introduced the ES250/LS250 mounted reversible plough series, to sit above the existing ES200/LS200 models.

With improved strength and durability in mind, the new series has been developed to accommodate tractors of up to 250hp. Available in 5, 5+1 and 6-furrow builds, the ES250/LS250 gains a heavy duty, Category III clevis-type lower hitch assembly, complete with a square-section cross-shaft.

The ES250/LS250 also benefits from a fully induction hardened turn-over assembly offering three times the increased strength over the ES200/LS200 models but importantly, without any weight penalty. In addition, a memory-type 100mm vari-width control cylinder is now fitted, as featured on larger ploughs in the Kverneland range.

A higher underbeam clearance is now part of the specification for the new models. The ES250 measures 75cm, while the LS250 is slightly higher, at 80cm. All ES250 and LS250 versions can be specified with 85cm or 100cm point to point clearance, to suit surface trash.

ES models offer auto reset protection, while LS models use shear bolts. Hydraulic front furrow width adjustment, quick-adjust maize skimmers and an 18in plain rear disc complete the package for this new plough series.

The five-furrow ES250 is priced from £30,789, with the shear-bolt protected five-furrow LS250 starting at £27,918.
