The KUHN PERFORMER is the tool of excellence for your farm, performing all tasks to the best quality. This tool with discs and tines offers 4 actions in one single pass: chopping up, mixing or loosening, levelling and reconsolidating.

Each field needs to be worked differently according to the texture and structure of the soil, but also according to the previous crop and the requirements of the next crop. The PERFORMER is perfectly adapted to these different possibilities thanks to its ultra-versatility:
The “One Pass system” consists of several cultivation tools to work the soil between 15 and 35cm deep in a single pass.
The two rows of independent discs with a diameter of 510 mm efficiently chop up residues and roots.
The 4 rows of curved tines perform deep mixing and incorporation of the straw. With an 85 cm under-frame clearance, the machines capacity is guaranteed even in dense crop residues.
For a “One Pass” cultivation, the 80mm wide points are used.
For a deep restructuring of the soil, limiting the disturbance on the surface, the 50 mm wide point is used. Soil bearing capacity is maintained and organic matter remains on the surface to increase soil fertility.
The levelling discs ensure the cultivated soil is levelled before the roller passes over.
The PERFORMER can be equipped with 3 different rollers according to the consolidation required:
The “One Pass system” guarantees large-scale savings: one machine, one driver, one pass and less fuel and time compared to conventional tillage systems.
The PERFORMER offers the possibility of using the different tools independently.
The discs can be used independently for stubble cultivation at high speeds up to 10 cm deep. The 2 rows of 510 mm discs allow the residues and roots to be efficiently chopped to promote decomposition.
The tines alone ensure remarkable mixing quality from 5 to 35 cm deep. In this case, the discs on the front of the machine are retracted to allow only the 4 rows of tines to work.
Depending on the point chosen, the PERFORMER offers the possibility to carry out many tasks: shallow stubble cultivation, deeper stubble cultivations or deep loosening.
The independent or combined use of each tool gives you the opportunity to perform many jobs with one single machine.
The PERFORMER is equipped with 2 rows of 510mm diameter discs with small notches.
The discs chop up residues and the root system to promote decomposition and to keep organic matter at the surface to increase soil fertility.
With a diameter of 510 mm, a reduced curvature and a profile with small notches, the discs guarantee a homogeneous stubble cultivation over the entire width of the machine. Their longevity is extended thanks to a thickness of 6 mm, reducing the wear.
The PERFORMER allows the discs to be used independently or combined with the other tools:
The disc safety consists of 4 polyurethane elastomer blocks allowing the disc to clear an obstacle if encountered. As the discs are independently mounted, only the disc in question retracts and the working depth is unaffected.
The hubs are lubricated for life. No maintenance is necessary which reduces downtime and ensures the machine is working for longer. You also avoid any intrusion of foreign bodies when changing the discs.
Just like the discs, it is possible to use the PERFORMER 4 rows of tines alone or combined.
Just like a CULTIMER, the PERFORMER’s tines ensure a remarkable soil / straw mixing quality from 5 to 35 cm. The mixing capacity of the curved tine and its curved deflector is widely recognised by many users.
The distribution of the tines over 4 rows facilitates the flow of residues and avoids blockages.
The working depth of the tines is kept constant by the Non-Stop Hydraulic safety system with a peak pressure of 900 kg.
A complete range of points are available to mount on the PERFORMER legs:
Good levelling simplifies the following operation. The PERFORMER is equipped with levelling discs that are continuously adjustable from the drivers seat. This simple and ultra-precise adjustment makes it possible to adapt to the soil conditions on the move. The discs are mounted on curved arms with elastomer safety for better flow in residues and more versatility in stones. For even greater comfort, the bearings of the levelling discs are maintenance-free.
Homogeneous consolidation of the entire worked surface limits runoff and facilitates water infiltration. Three rollers are available for the PERFORMER:
On the PERFORMER range, all adjustments are made hydraulically and continuously from the tractor cab to save you time and increase your work outputs:
All hydraulic functions are centralised onto the KTH 105 4-function hydraulic selector. The machine only requires 2 double acting spools for the machine functions and 1 single acting spool for the NSH pressure.
The quality of the KUHN original wearing parts is indisputable. They guarantee greater longevity, profitability and work output. The points are forged and refined to push the limits of use.
The 80 mm point is versatile and can work from 5 to 35 cm deep. It is ideal for incorporating large quantities of residues. For shallow stubble cultivation, it can be equipped with 350 mm wings. These are assembled simply and quickly thanks to 2 lateral bolts. The wings ensure an intensive mixing of the residues over the entire working width.
The 80 mm point and the 350 mm wings are available as standard or with carbide. The carbide wear plates guarantee 10 times more wear than standard wearing parts. With 10 times less parts changes, carbide saves the user time.
The 50 mm point is highly recommended for deep loosening. It cracks the soil up to 35 cm deep. With the 50 mm tip, only available in carbide, demand for traction is reduced and the lifting of stones reduced.
The PERFORMER can be equipped with a crop cover seeder to cultivate and seed in a single pass. With a capacities of 200, 380 and 600 litres, the SH 201, 402 and 600 seed drills enable you to be autonomous. They allow the seeding of cover crops such as: phacelia, mustard, ryegrass, and clover. Crop establishment for OSR is also possible.
By reducing the number of passes, you significantly improve the structure of your soil and promote biological activity. Savings in time and money are also significant which can be in the range of 30 to 50%!
