Water-logged or flooded fields can prove difficult for farmers as it can change soil conditions and disrupt work in the field. With a range of ground-engaging discs, The Kelly Tillage System is strong and effective and the shallow working specialist that gets into wet fields earlier than other machines to warm up cold soil and dry out the soil surface.
The secret to the Kelly Tillage Systems unique ability in wet conditions lies in the lack of weight applied to the ground tools. The discs are attached to a flexible chain gang that follows the surface contour. It is the strength of the chain gang, the shape and weight of each disc and the angle of attack that allows the discs to run shallow, even in wet conditions. The huge spread of the internal frame has excellent floatation and is relatively lighter than other tillage equipment. Equipment that relies on frame weight to make the tools dig. With all these features combined the Kelly is the ideal tool to access fields earlier than any other.
As well as warming up the soil and airing out the surface, the Kelly Tillage System is able to eliminate wheel ruts. With the Kelly’s Diamond layout, soil is moved from left and right to completely fill in and level out wheel ruts.
The most versatile of the Kelly Disc Chains, the CL1 is a concave disc made from hardwearing cast steel alloy, with a hook and eye to link together.
The CL1 disc is the ideal for levelling soil and working at just the right depth to create the perfect seedbed. It can also be used for residue management
The W36 Disc Chain is a lightly curved disc made from hardened wear resistant steel plate, welded onto a heavy chain. The W36 disc is ideal for wet, sticky, heavy soils. It is also ideal for mulching stubble and levelling soil.
Combining the CL1 Disc Chain at the front of the machine, and the W36 Disc Chain at the rear of the machine provides a low cost and an easy pulling option that handles wetter conditions.
