KVERNELAND PACKOMMAT SOIL PACKER

The perfect seedbed is made while ploughing.

The Packomat® is an integrated soil packer which is directly coupled to the plough. This combination is both efficient and environmentally friendly. By applying a pressure of 1.000 kg, the wedge-shaped discs cut their way through the furrows, crush clods, push down stones, level and pack the soil. This ensures a quick re-establishment of the capillarity water conductivity.
