KUHN’s EL power tillers are designed to loosen the soil’s surface and crumble it to improve surface water absorption. It is essential to choose the right time to work the soil and adjust the work intensity in order to achieve flawless results and avoid erosion. The helical blades of the KUHN EL power tillers are specially designed to perfectly shred the residues before mixing them into the soil. The shredding of prunings, the incorporation of mulch into the soil or the burial of a permanent cover established during the winter are easily feasible.
During the growing season, weeds are competing with vines and fruit trees for nutrients and water. Spring or summer tillage with an EL power tiller is an ecological alternative to chemical weeding. Soils are preserved while weeds are destroyed.
The shape of the power tiller rear hood is ideal for a uniform soil flow and to adapt to a variety of conditions: shallow or deep work, dry or humid soil, different volumes of residues. If the rear hood is closed, the soil is recycled to create a finer tilth. In humid conditions or in the presence of plant debris, the machine will be more efficient with the hood more open. The rear hood is mounted on springs for optimal seedbed preparation.
EL 62, 82 and 92 power tillers consist of a large section one-piece casing for high rigidity and for fatigue and shock resistance. The front tube integrated into the casing increases the strength of the assembly and supports the equipment. The EL power tiller headstock have also been carefully designed to make hitching up as easy as possible. Solid and reliable, these components will meet your needs.
On EL 43 and 53 models, the central gearbox is mounted directly on the tiller frame. It is offset, as is the 3-point frame which avoids unfavourable drive angles. This makes it easy to work under trees and along edges.
On EL 62, 82 and 92 power tiller models, the central gearbox is set backward for reduced PTO angles. On the EL 92, the Duplex gearbox offers 4 rotation speeds with the optional gear set to allow the operator to adjust the rotor speed to match the conditions. The EL 62 model also offers a Duplex transmission where two speeds are possible by inverting the gearwheels. The entire driveline is protected by a friction torque limiter.
The linkage offset possibility allows the power tiller (narrower than the tractor), to erase the wheel tracks on the right side. Offsetting the linkage is easy, by sliding the three tiller frame yokes across, the gearbox moves with the linkage and remains in line with the PTO of the tractor. The machine can be adapted to the varioius situations and ensures perfect stability.
The helical shape of the KUHN blades ensures:
– cutting and mixing of plant residues,
– aggressive penetration into hard soils while requiring less power,
– increased clod crumbling.
The EL 43 power tillers are equipped with four blades per flange and all the other models have six for even finer crumbling. In order to perform shallow work, L-blades are also available for the EL 53 and 92 models.
