Interceptor 8055

The KUHN Krause Interceptor 8055 delivers high-speed conservation tillage to control stubborn, chemical resistant weed growth, while sizing and evenly distributing tough residue throughout the worked soil profile. This action kills weeds, limits potential movement of wind driven residue, builds soil organic matter by contributing to residue breakdown, and helps prevent formation of a residue mat on or below the soil surface which could inhibit seed soil contact and movement of moisture and nutrients throughout the profile. The proven Star Wheel™ treaders with 24/7® finishing attachments provide a consistent, uniform field finish.

Your benefits

Residue Incorporation

8055-Excalibur-CT-Blade-2.jpg

Excalibur® CT Blades

Higher residue quantities from increased planting populations, tougher stover from GMO hybrids with stay-green traits, varying soil moisture and volatile weather conditions: these are all examples of challenges North American producers face during the tillage season every year. Designed to maintain a sharp cutting edge throughout service, Excalibur CT blades cut and size residue. These 22” diameter blades are mounted on 9” spacing to achieve a full cut of soil across the machine, and each blade features 32 flutes to reduce clod size. The Excalibur CT blades are configured in a tandem layout to prevent tracking and ensure a more uniform distribution of soil and residue across the field compared to machines utilizing an offset design. The Interceptor’s depth of frame provides ample distance for residue and soil to flow, allowing it to settle between the two parallel rows of blades and reduce the risk of plugging compared to short-coupled designs.

Angle of Attack

Excalibur® CT blades are mounted on a shallow compound angle to ensure optimum soil penetration while limiting weight carried on the backside of the blade. This reduces compaction and smearing of soil, especially in wet conditions and helps ensure that residue is distributed throughout the soil profile and not simply buried at the bottom of the seedbed.

Trains Star Wheel™

Les trains Star Wheel™, fixés à des angles de 6 degrés, nivellent le lit de semences et dimensionnent les mottes, tout en mélangeant et en ancrant les résidus dans le sol meuble. La pression hydraulique descendante à débit constant sur le train Star Wheel permet à l’accessoire de maintenir une pression de travail uniforme sur une surface de champ variable, ce qui donne un fini uniforme et constant. De nombreuses unités de la concurrence dépendent de leur accessoire arrière pour contrôler la profondeur de travail de la machine et lui transmettent ainsi un poids important, ce qui peut tasser et comprimer le lit de semences.

Quality Finishing

Star Wheel™ Treaders

Star Wheel treader gangs, mounted on 6-degree angles, level the seedbed and size clods, while mixing and anchoring residue into the loose soil. Constant-flow hydraulic down pressure on the Star Wheel treader allows the attachment to maintain even working pressure across a varying field surface, resulting in a consistent, uniform finish. Many competitive units depend upon their rear attachment to control machine operating depth and thereby transmit significant weight to their rear attachment, which can result in a tight, compressed seedbed.

24/7® Conditioning Reels

Available with flat blades for maximum clod sizing in hard soil conditions or round bars for increased soil firming in loamy soil conditions, this effective component contributes a superior finish in any field. The reel may also be raised hydraulically using the tractor SCV to increase field run time in wet conditions.

Quick and Easy Adjustments

8055 Depth Handle highlight2.png

Single Point Depth Control

Working depth is adjusted from a single point at the front of the machine and controlled using the walking beam mounted tires in the middle of the frame. With this configuration, front/rear levelling is not affected during depth changes and so changing machine depth is quick and easy and does not necessitate additional adjustments.

Stabilizer Wheel Down Pressure

The Interceptor 8055 uses stabilizer wheels with a constant hydraulic down pressure system rather than a fixed position system which work in combination with the mechanically sprung leveling linkage. In effect, this provides the machine with a suspension system that dampens machine bounce and helps to ensure a level field finish. Because the stabilizer wheels are not set in a fixed position, they do not normally need to be adjusted when changing working depth, further reducing the number of potential adjustment points. When stabilizer wheel down pressure adjustment is necessary, it is set using a single valve block at the front of the machine.

Wing and Star Wheel Down Pressure

Down pressure on wings and Star Wheel treaders is adjusted using valve blocks at the front of the machine. Varying wing pressure helps ensure even penetration across the width of the machine and will not normally require additional adjustment between seasons unless moving between extremely hard and soft conditions. Similarly, Star Wheel pressure is set to give the desired degree of residue anchoring and clod sizing and will not normally require additional adjustment unless moving between residue types.
