CHERVONETS TRAILED SEEDBED CULTIVATOR

Zelenaya Energiya Agro in Odessa Region is a young and perspective farming, which is increasing and developing and directed by Aleksander Bubelich. The farming is actively expanding and gradually replenishing the arsenal of new agricultural machinery. The main production direction of the farming is growing of wheat, sunflower, barley and peas. Today the area of the farm is 800 hectares. For the last three years 21 units of equipment were purchased for the farming. One of the latest purchasing became CHERVONETS trailed seedbed cultivator. CHERVONETS TRAILED SEEDBED CULTIVATOR According to Aleksander words, firstly he looked out the implement with working width of 8 m and contemplated several similar variants, including models of French KUNH, American СASE and Ukrainian «LOZOVA MACHINERY». The choice was made in favor of the domestic producer. «I saw CHERVONETS of LOZOVA MACHINERY several times at the exhibitions», – explains his choice Aleksander. – «Therefore, the decision was made quickly and weighed on the base of technical and financial reasons. Previous years I rented a cultivator from another farmer. First of all, I have to wait for my turn, as at first he tills his fields. Secondly, I considered that it is more profitable to buy own implement and not to depend on anybody and the price for rental». This spring the cultivator has already worked on the field. «It works perfectly and has almost done the first track of cultivation. I am satisfied with its work, - shares the farmer the emotions. - It performs all the necessary operations: copes with the tillage and loosening of the soil, cuts down the weeds, and smooth the surface of the field perfectly. And the most important, it does everything quickly! What ordinary KPS complete for two or three passes, CHERVONETS does at once. We will get optimally prepared soil for the second track, what land leveler at the cost of USD 85 thousands can do. But I didn’t pay for my cultivator this sum. Thus, it was the best price offer with a set of multi-tasking implement for us». The farmer also noted that the purchase of CHERVONETS justifies itself, as it presented itself well. It isn’t clogged and works perfectly on the over-wetted soil, respectively, there is almost no sticking and clogging of the implement working tools. He added that while others complain about the economic situation in the country, they look forward, work, buy reliable equipment from proven producers and are ready to get a positive result and good harvest.

LIRA HARROW
The soil is the most reliable and gratifying source of income.

LIRA HARROW

The soil is the most reliable and gratifying source of income. The soil fertility and its yield depend only on its thoughtful owner. The reasonably invested money in the development of new technologies of soil tillage allows farmers to increase productivity and improve the quality of the yield, reduce costs and increase profits, and most important – to preserve soil fertility. «Ecological» agriculture becomes widespread. TOOTH SPRING HARROWS: WHAT DOMESTIC FARMERS PREFER. Today, more and more domestic farmers refuse to use herbicides in favor of mechanical soil tillage. The Ukrainian farmers apply spring tooth harrows for the early spring harrowing for crust destruction and encouraging the weeds germination, even distribution of stubble remains on the field, destruction of weeds in the «white thread» phase etc. What is the difference? Which producers do domestic farmers prefer? We tried to understand, addressing to the producers. The head of the farming ZLAK (Sumy Region, Krasnopolsky district, Krasnopolsky village) Fedor Klimashevsky admits that he prefers mechanical technologies, completely refusing from the use of herbicides in soil tillage. The spring tooth harrows, produced by Lozova Forging-Mechanical Plant (Lozova, Kharkov Region), help him to cope with weeds. «Previously we used composite harrows, but they aren't absolutely suitable for seedbed cultivation and don't cope with the weeds. The implements become blocked and broke up. They also didn't perform the necessary result», – tells Fedor Klimashevskiy. The farmer got the expected effect after purchasing LIRA tooth harrow. «What can I say? This harrow is almost self-maintenance. It is distinguished by metal of good quality. The tooth work 3-4 years, as against to majority tooth harrows, where they should be changed annually. One more advantage: it is portable. Moreover, it copes with weeds during pre-seeding, post-seeding and 2-3 soil tillage in one season». On the fields of the farming VESNA (Dnipro Region, Shirokinskiy district, Andreevka village) Viktor Kovalenko grows oilseed crops, mustard, flax, rape and sunflowers. The farmer regrets to admit that he doesn't have tooth harrows in his own machine and tractor park. However, during the season, the farmer takes equipment from the agricultural company TAVRIYA-SOYUZ. "Before I used ploughs, but they didn't cope with clods smashing, – says Viktor Kovalenko, – Today I till the soil, using tooth harrows of LOZOVA MACHINERY. They perfectly cope with harrowing and destruct the weeds due to vibration effect of spring teeth. It can be sometimes that the soil is prepared for seeding, but there is no moisture, and weeds are still growing. All the weeds in the “white thread” phase are destructed with the help of tooth harrow tillage. I also prepare the soil for winter crops seeding, using this implement. Moreover, the tooth harrow of LOZOVA MACHINERY has perfect efficiency, and convenient in transportation and exploitation. Only one person can fold and unfold the harrow. The fact wasn't surprise that LLC AGROSVIT-K (Dnіpropetrovska Region, Krivorіzkii district, Radushne village) prefer LIRA spring tooth harrow of LOZOVA MACHINERY. Another advantages of tillage implement are well thought-out compact transportation and the ability to be serviced by only one operator. "We have two harrows produced by LKMZ with working width of 15 m and 24 m. We purchased the first harrow in 2004, – tells engineer of LLC AGROSVIT-K Boris Berezhnoy. – In that time nothing similar was produced in Ukraine. It was innovative machinery. For 13 years the harrows has been working perfectly. For the exploitation time I didn't change the full set of teeth. If it was necessary, I just changed the separate teeth, which operation life was ended. The welding works were also done perfectly in the implement. I can point out excellent technologies of production of the other tillage implements of LKMZ, not only of tooth harrows. LKMZ established itself on the Ukrainian market as a qualitative producer, understanding the farmers needs". We tried to understand why farmers in the segment of tooth spring harrows prefer the implements of LOZOVA MACHINERY. As it is turned out, LIRA is the first spring tooth harrow of the Ukrainian production, established itself on the country market in 1999. Almost immediately LIRA (before – ZPG) gained popularity among farmers. It is cheaper than foreign analogues and isn't worse in quality. After it entered the market, the other producers of agricultural machinery in Ukraine started production of such implements. No one could overcome the popularity of LIRA. The big experience of Lozova Forging-Mechanical Plant in production of spring harrows is reflected in deep preparation for production, in keeping strict quality control of metal and all production technologies. The spring teeth are made of high-quality steel, which two-level heat treatment, what make the spare parts solid. As practice shows, domestic harrows require replacement of teeth once a year, LOZOVA MACHINERY has an extended life span up to 3-4 years. Our survey among farmers has shown that the life span could be longer with the replacement of only individual teeth. The crosses in LIRA, used for turning, are made like the metal of one piece, as against to the majority of other domestic producers, where the cross is a welded part. And welded seams are the concentrator of the tension and the potential risk of the implement braking up. The more accurate approach to hydraulic technicians is embodied in the spring harrow of LOZOVA MACHINERY. The elements, placed in the hydrosystem, are rated at the pressure of 200 atmospheres, what excludes the risk of leakage. Many other domestic producers set hydraulic cylinders, designed for 160 atmospheres. Today, many farmers purchase LIRA wide-level harrows together with REAL complex for the application of the plant protecting agents and complex fertilizers, produced by LKMZ.

CHERVONETS CULTIVATOR: PERFECT SEEDBED – GUARANTEE OF HEAVY CROPS!

The land resource is a key factor in the agrarian business. Today, the soil is used very intensively, so there is a risk of its depletion. The farmers face the main task – to tillage the soil with the minimum damage and get the maximum profit. The high-quality and reliable agricultural machinery is needed for this mission. CHERVONETS CULTIVATOR: PERFECT SEEDBED – GUARANTEE OF HEAVY CROPS! The quality, energy-efficiency, high productivity, durability and reliability – all these notions describe CHERVONETS seedbed cultivator of LOZOVA MACHINERY. Its versatility allows to carry out loosening of soil at depth of 3-15 cm, incorporating of mineral and organic fertilizers, providing the second stubble cultivation and destruction of weeds germination, and also soil smoothing. The efficient tillage by CHERVONETS is achieved due to a number of design advantages. The implement has multi-functional leveling bars which smooth the backs on the field and create favourable conditions for water-air regime in the soil. Taking into account these design solutions, we can say that machinery is designed with a high percentage of intellectual component. CHERVONETS seedbed cultivator creates perfect seedbed – compacted layer, covered with well-loosened soil on the top (ridgeness of the field surface – up to 3 cm, soil crumbling – not less than 80%). The implement is efficient on the small as well as large areas. There are two staggered rollers of different diameters, rotating at different speeds. This allows to avoid non-cultivated areas during the packing of soil and provides smaller soil crumbling. Often it happens that working tools of tillage machinery become clogged with soil and stubble remains. The LOZOVA MACHINERY designers have eliminated this problem. The roller doesn't have central axis, so there is no clogging even in the overwetted conditions. With working width of 8 m and working speed up to 15 km/h CHERVONETS passes up to 12 ha/h, thus considerably saves fuel consumption (it spends 3-5 l/ha in contrast to machinery of other domestic manufacturers which spend 5-8 l/ha ). The farmers, who have already tested CHERVONETS seedbed cultivator on their fields, are satisfied with it. Aleksandr Bubelich, director of PE Zelenaya Energiya Agro (Belyaevka, Odessa Region), has been using LOZOVA MACHINERY cultivator for two years and admires the speed and economy of fuel consumption. «This cultivator prepared about 500 ha for seeding. Even under wet conditions, it cultivates the soil with quality, perfectly following the ground contours. The weeds and moisture aren't a problem. The cultivator shows good productivity and there is no problems with the working tools. For two years of exploitation, CHERVONETS proved its reliability and efficiency», – commented Aleksandr Bubelich. CHERVONETS seedbed cultivator is one of the best solutions for modern energy efficient tillage. It provides soil proper care, perfect seedbed and heavy yields for farmers.

LIRA XL HEAVY TOOTH HARROWS

The Ukrainian farmers have the first-hand knowledge of LIRA tooth harrows, LOZOVA MACHINERY. For more than 16 years of successful exploitation on the fields of Ukrainian farmers LIRA has received the status of "legendary" harrow for its unpretentiousness, reliability and the highest quality of soil tillage. This year the range of tooth harrows was supplemented with new implements. The long-awaited novelties for farmers became LIRA XL heavy tooth harrows with working width of 15 m and 21 m that can be equipped with drag harrows. LIRA XL HEAVY TOOTH HARROWS – 5 OPERATIONS IN ONE PASS! The LIRA XL harrows (15 and 21 m) are equipped with frames with five rows of teeth with diameter of 16 mm and height of 762 mm, set on the parallelogram. Like other implements of the tooth harrows line, LIRA XL is distinguished with durability and good teeth life, which is three times higher than other producers have. Another advantage of the novelties is adjustable tilt angle – 45°-90° and the possibility to adjust the spring pressure on the soil from 400 to 860 kg. The uniqueness is proved by ability to carry out 5 operations in one pass: — early spring harrowing and loosening of the surface at the depth of 2-10 cm, retaining the moisture; — encouraging the weeds germination with their further destruction; — levelling the field surface and seedbed preparation; — incorporation of fertilizers and pesticides; — even spreading of stubble remains. Parallelogram suspension of separate work sections allows to keep contact with a rough soil. Thus, the degree of soil contour following is significantly higher than by section mounting on the wrap springs. The farmers get soil layer with uniform thickness and reliable seeds incorporation. In addition, the equipping with cables for additional rigidity of the wings, that in contrast to rods, allow to provide perfect turning maneuvering and reduce pressures affecting the frame. Therefore, the overall dimensions of the harrow do not complicate the work. The important point is a convenience of exploitation. It is easy to fold and unfold LIRA XL from transport to work position and vice versa. A number of design solutions significantly increase the productivity of LIRA XL heavy tooth harrows, which is up to 25 ha/hour. All LOZOVA MACHINERY implements are designed with taking into account Ukrainian farmers' needs, so they are adapted for domestic tractors. In particular, LIRA XL-15 is trailed with tractors from 160 hp and LIRA XL-21 – with tractors from 300 hp. Presentation of new units on the Ukrainian market took place in February this year within the largest international exhibition Grain Tech Expo, where the farmers were interested in the innovative domestically produced agricultural machinery, allowing to run the farming effectively. In order to achieve maximum productivity you can purchase drag harrow with working width 15/21 m which is equipped with sixteen rows of rhomb-shaped teeth that allows to loose and smooth the most solid soil layer. These implements passed the tests on the base of training research test center of Nikolayev National Agrarian University. According to the test results LIRA XL-15 and LIRA XL-21 showed positive results, even in conditions of huge amount of stubble remains. The novelties were tested on wheat and corn stubbles, and they also completed tillage after under-winter ploughing. Working tools also proved their reliability and power. The specialists of one of the largest agrarian university of the country noted that these implements of LOZOVA MACHINERY are not the first, which have passed successful tests on their fields, and add that the machinery work is not worse than leading foreign analogues. Currently LIRA XL-15 and LIRA XL-21 in two modifications (drag and heavy tooth harrows) are to be put in serial production, and to fulfill farmers’ requirements.

LIRA + REAL: DOUBLE EFFECT FOR ONE PASS
Lira + Real: double effect for one pass

LIRA + REAL: DOUBLE EFFECT FOR ONE PASS

One of the first stages of soil preparation before the seeding is the early spring harrowing for crust destruction, weeds eradication, even distribution of stubble remains on the field and other operations. LIRA spring-tooth harrow of LOZOVA MACHINERY helps the farmers to cope with these operations for more than 16 years. It deserved farmers trust and status of the legendary harrow due to its simplicity, reliability and high quality of soil tillage. Application of LIRA together with REAL, the complex for applying fertilizers and means of plant protection, will double the effect of the soil tillage. Let's go through everything point by point. LEGENDARY SPRING-TOOTH HARROW LIRA: YEARS OF PERFECT WORK Indeed, for the years of perfect work LIRA spring-tooth harrow acquired a reputation of qualitative and reliable product, and Ukrainian farmers have first-hand knowledge of it. Aleksandr Melnik, the head of MAYAK farming (Sakhnovschina village, Kharkov Region) pointed out that he is more than just satisfied with work and efficiency of LIRA-24 for 10 years of its exploration. «Every season we use LIRA spring tooth harrow for moisture retaining, soil tillage before the wheat seeding, herbicides incorporating. Due to large working width it is required only several passes of the implement. The soil becomes soft and the surface becomes smooth after using of LIRA. Before purchasing this implement, my friend always asked me the same question – how can I run the farming without LIRA harrow? After purchasing I understand myself that LIRA is indispensable in farming and it didn't let me down», – shares the farmer his impression. Even today the farmers prefer legendary LIRA. Thus, Igor Tikhanov, the head of FANTASIA farming (Novoajdar village, Lugansk Region), bought LIRA-24 spring-tooth harrow last year. He has already tilled 100 ha and estimated the implement benefits: «The harrow worked perfectly. It is qualitative and efficient harrow. It cultivated the field thoroughly and accurately. The result of LIRA exploration pleased us last season, so we expect for higher productivity this year. The main load on the implement is planned for the spring works». The outstanding scientists prove the uniqueness of LIRA tooth harrow according to the results of tests, which were conducted on the fields of large science-research centers of the country. Thus, Deputy Director for scientific and experimental work of UkrNIIPIT named after L. Pogoreliy, Victor Pogoreliy points out: «LOZOVA MACHINERY offers the best tooth harrows with adjusted teeth for today». Indeed, one of the main advantages of LIRA spring harrow range is adjusted teeth tilt angle – 15◦-90◦ – that provides tillage at various depths. «LOZOVA MACHINERY offers the best tooth harrows with adjusted teeth for today» One more advantage of LIRA harrow teeth is a high lifetime: it is three times higher that tooth of other producers owing to high-quality special steel with double hardening. Working sections of LIRA harrows consist of five rows of spring teeth with diameter of 10 mm that provides qualitative soil tillage without non-cultivated areas, even distribution of stubble remains on the field and field smoothness. The vibration effect provides blockage-free work of teeth and perfect loosening. In addition, LIRA perfectly follows the complex field contours even in hard stubble remains conditions. Unlike the ordinary car tyres, low-pressure agricultural tyres allow to minimize the damage of crop plants when the implement moves on shoots, exclude excessive soil compaction, impacting on the plants growth and development. LIRA spring harrow destructs the weeds not less than by 95% and retain moisture and provide air access to the seeds at the same time. Besides harrowing the implement accomplishes incorporating of seeds and mineral fertilizes, straw picking and windrowing, destructing the weeds in the “white thread” phase. The tillage is completed two times quicker due to large working width, 15 and 24 m. Moreover the overall dimensions don't complicate the transportation. The tractor driver can fold and unfold LIRA harrow himself. LOZOVA MACHINERY offers a harrow, which is simple in use, economical and achieves maximum effect. Such technical data of LIRA as operating depth (up to 9 cm), operating speed (up to 15 km/h), efficiency (22,8 ha/h), fuel consumption (0,8-1,5 l/ha) prove the high effectiveness and save the energy resources. The tillage costs for 1 ha, using LIRA tooth harrow is less by 30% in comparison to domestic analogs and 2,5 times less in comparison to foreign machinery. All this allowed LIRA to conquer the glory of enduring, energy efficient and productive agricultural machinery among farmers and it makes it truly legendary. This year the range of tooth harrows was supplemented with new implements. The long-awaited novelties for farmers became LIRA XL heavy tooth harrows with working width of 15 m and 21 m that can be equipped with drag harrows. LIRA + REAL is a good decision for tillage If you want to double the tillage effect, use LIRA spring harrow with complex for application of liquid mineral fertilizes and means of plants protection REAL of LOZOVA MACHINERY that includes trailed sprayer for active substance (capacity 2,5-5 m³) with a set of equipment, easily mounted on the harrow. In one pass REAL provides incorporation of substances at the optimal depth (3-5 cm) with their surface treatment. It guarantees their effectiveness, almost excludes the loss of the active substances due to evaporation or wind blowing and also considerably reduces the exploitation costs. There is no sprayer on the Ukrainian market that can provide such results. Consider yourself. There is no any effect when the herbicides are sprayed on the surface, especially in dry weather, as the big amount of the substance just vaporizes. Moreover, the blowing of the substance and its destruction under the sun rise is possible. There is necessity in additional pass for incorporation that leads to expenditure of time and fuel, and the high price for fuel shall be taken into account. Moreover, the soil is tilled additionally that has negative effect. With the small degree of herbicides incorporation by light spring harrows, for example, the large amount of the substance vaporizes, as it contacts with atmosphere. With too deep incorporation of herbicides and fertilizers the bigger part of active substance is put lower than seeds, and this reduces their effectiveness. So, REAL not only copes with its functions, but also demonstrates energy efficient way of gentle soil tillage. In order to achieve even substance spreading across whole working width of LIRA, REAL is equipped with a high-qualitative control unit ARAG and axial-piston pump Annovi Reverberi driven by tractor PTO. Thus, the farmers can avoid non-cultivated areas on the field surface during incorporation of fertilizes and plants protecting agents, and consequently reduction of yields. The complex REAL + LIRA allows to increase the efficiency of the incorporated substance, minimize its consumption and load on the environmental system of the world through the momentary incorporating of liquid substance of tooth-spring harrow. What could be better for farmers than a tandem that allows to simplify and accelerate field work hundred times? Aleksandr Shevchenko, director of JLLC PROTOPOPOVSKOE (Protopopovka village, Balakliya district, Kharkov region) has been using the complex LIRA + REAL since 2012 and during this time agricultural machinery proved its effectiveness. «The machinery has shown its reliability and endurance for 5 years of exploitation and work on over 5 000 ha. It is characterized by high speed and productivity. The soil is soft and smooth after the tillage. The most important is that it perfectly copes with fertilizes incorporating and provides minimization of fuel and mineral fertilizes consumption due to incorporation in one pass. Before we spent more time and fuel for same operation – we spread fertilizes in one pass and then incorporated them with second pass. LOZOVA MACHINERY offered an excellent solution for this operation!» – notes the farmer. The unit for application of liquid substances and plant protection agents REAL in complex with tooth spring harrow LIRA is unique solution of tillage agricultural machinery with implementation of the intellectual component for modern energy efficient agriculture.

DINAR ROTARY HARROW: AIRY SOIL – PERFECT RESULT!
Dinar rotary harrow: airy soil – perfect result!

DINAR ROTARY HARROW: AIRY SOIL – PERFECT RESULT!

It is strategically important for each farming to create conditions for increasing yields and achieving the greatest fertility of their land. The Ukrainian farmers know that «tо reap good harvest you have to work hard in spring». The harrowing is the most famous, relatively affordable and economically profitable way to increase soil productivity. This process helps to protect soil from drying out, to smooth its surface, to destroy a crust and “white thread” weeds. The harrowing efficiency depends on terms of its accomplishment and well chosen implement, that carries out the whole process. DINAR ROTARY HARROW: AIRY SOIL – PERFECT RESULT! DINAR rotary harrow of LOZOVA MACHINERY is an implement that consists of seventy two wheels-stars on balance suspension. Every solid-cast star is made of high-qualitative cast iron with diameter of 534 mm. Such heavy harrow is used for cultivation of tillage, industrial and cereal crops. DINAR is trailed with tractors with power of 120 hp and its working width is 6,4 meters. In contrast to rigid suspension, the balance set of the stars provides their constant contact with the soil, reduces the dynamic load on the bearings. Stars with oblique tooth allow to vary the intensity of tillage by the implement. So, in the first mode, stars with oblique tooth provide vertical tooth penetration in the soil with “micro-explosion”. The damage of crop plants is up to 1% and it is 10 times less of other similar implements. The second mode provides increased intensity of impact on the soil, which is perfect for the tillage of stubble. It is to be noted that the producers of DINAR harrow did their best to simplify the life of farmers as much as possible. Each tine is mounted to the frame by one bolt. Such fast mounting reduce efforts when changing tines for different inter-rows. The implement is equipped additionally with spring teeth for additional weeds destruction in the “white thread” phase. The implement advantage is hydraulically foldable frame that minimizes the load on the tractor's hinged system and provides compactness of the implement during transportation. The working width of the implement in folded position is 3 meters. In addition, the harrow is equipped with special wheels that allow to control the depth of stars penetration in the soil. In spite of DINAR is a novelty on the agricultural machinery market, some farmers have already tested it. The head of the branch of AIC Dokuchaevsk Chernozems (Poltava Region, Karlovka) Aleksander Domnich shared his experience of DUCAT application: «As against to inter-row cultivators, which we used before, the harrow doesn't damage the plants roots and it can easily work on slopes without a damage of crops. The harrow perfectly copes with crust and weeds». Aleksander Domnich pointed out the efficiency of the harrow: «For one shift this implement can tillage about 60 hectares with fuel consumption from 1,8-2,5 liter per unit area. For example, 4 liters are spent per one hectare using inter-row cultivator. The economy is evident». LOZOVA MACHINERY has many times demonstrated to Ukrainian farmers that it is possible to produce a range of highly efficient and economical machinery in our country, which aren't worse than foreign analogues. At the same time, the prices of implements and spare parts are much more affordable, which is definitely a competitive advantage. The latest technological developments were used by producing DINAR rotary harrow, and the effect of its application is more than positive. It will become a real breakthrough on the agricultural machinery market of domestic production. Learn more Order the demonstration show DOWNLOADS Leaflet DINAR

IT'S TIME FOR DOMESTIC MACHINERY
It's time for domestic machinery

IT'S TIME FOR DOMESTIC MACHINERY

The activity of domestic producers has recently increased significantly. The reason for this was the serious fluctuations of the exchange rate, which did not remain unnoticed for foreign producers of agricultural machinery. The share of foreign machinery significantly decreased in the last 1,5 – 2 years, which provided a number of opportunities for Ukrainian producers of the implements to expand their presence in the Ukrainian market. Taking into account the economic situation in the country, the activity of domestic machinery producers will only increase. IT'S TIME FOR DOMESTIC MACHINERY In a difficult economic situation, when the farmers face the issue of machinery purchasing, the problems of efficiency and quick payback of implements become the most important. Moreover, many farms have already experienced the application of foreign machinery. They are interested in buying the machinery that is similar to the foreign analogs in functional characteristics and price-performant. DUCAT disc harrows of Ukrainian producer LOZOVA MACHINERY relate to such implements. In DUCAT disc harrows there are a number of design solutions, such as unmaintained bearing unit and unique spring tine, which are embodied and adopted for local soil-climatic conditions. These solutions are inherent in leading European producers and the domestic machinery producers almost don't adopt them. DUCAT has been working in farming ALTAIR (Lugansk Region) for about a year. "I had been choosing for a long time and considered another foreign implement, but it was expensive. Then we tried domestic machinery, but we didn't like that the bearings started to untwist. I purchased DUCAT 5 and none bearing unit has failed since 2014! We don't need to tighten them or something else to do. Very convenient" – says the owner of the farming Popov Viktor. HARP AGRO UNIT bearing unit (used in DUCAT) is better than other serviced units as DUCAT has a sealed double row ball bearing with reinforced rings (forged) and German seal Simrit, which protects from dust and dirt. There is originally the American lubricant Chevron in the bearing and this bearing unit is tightened with certain efforts that do not require additional tightening. DUCAT-5 is a unique implement with working width of 5,25 m. It is trailed with tractors of 160-180 hp, which is an unattainable indicator for all domestic producers. «It turned out that the capacity of the tractor was able to provide high-quality work at the speed of 12 km/h and at a depth of 8-12 cm, working on stubble and sunflower. I believe that spring tine is a good design solution, which gives an undeniable advantage over the harrow on a rigid tine»- frankly told Popov Viktor. Indeed, spring tines allow the implement with larger working width to be trailed with tractors. This indicator is ensured by the fact that the spring tine doesn't crush the ground, but cuts and lightens the mounted system of the tractor and provides fuel economy. The working tools are crucial elements of any implement, as they have a very heavy load. In comparison with stationary tines, spring tines cause fears among farmers, especially among those who had no experience with similar foreign implements, and worked only with classical domestic harrows on a stationary tines. Farming MAZHUGA: «I have been working for several seasons, I am satisfied with the work, and DUCAT harrow is unique due to its tine. I tillage at the depth of 7 cm and very satisfied. The tine is reliable, springy and it has cultivated for 2 seasons 600 hectares. Only one tine has broken and we have put from spares» - told the head of the farming. The farming TKACH (Dnipro Region) is also satisfied with DUCAT work: «We saw the machinery at the exhibition and we were very interested in the construction of the implement, but there were doubts. But on the first day of work we understood that the purchase will justify and payback a few more times. Now the work of the implement comes to more than 1200 hectares. The harrow is used intensively by working at a depth of 10 cm. The design is very good. I use it even when the soil is overdried. The tractor works smoothly. We are very satisfied.» - said Vasily Tkach, head of the farming. DUCAT's tine is made of spring steel at Lozova Forging-Mechanical Plant, which has unique forging production and huge experience in producing complex products. «In fact, we have a fracture of tines less than 1% of all working tines. The spare tines and a guarantee of 1 year are provided for each implement» - confirms the words of farmers Sales Director of LOZOVA MACHINERY Aleksandr Titov. «Despite the high level of competition, including with foreign companies, farmers have already preferred the tilling implements of LOZOVA MACHINERY to foreign analogues. Today, for example, many farmers are going to buy the second and third harrow, – continues Alexandr Titov. LOZOVA MACHINERY is modern agricultural machinery, which is produced by Lozova Forging-Mechanical Plant (LKMZ) and represented by a wide range of energy-efficient and innovative products. Today tillage and seeding implements of LOZOVA MACHINERY not only successfully compete with the leading world analogues, but also surpass them by some features as they are adapted to Ukrainian farmers' needs.

CHERVONETS SEEDBED CULTIVATOR
CHERVONETS seedbed cultivator creates a perfect seed bed: compacted layer, embedded with well-loosened soil on top.

CHERVONETS SEEDBED CULTIVATOR

It isn't a secret that the basis of the heavy yield is timely and qualitative seedbed cultivation. The mistakes made in the seedbed preparation can be costly for farmers: in addition to the strong soil clogging there is also crop losses up to 20% and above. So, farmers reasonably impose the highest requirements for seedbed cultivation implements. In addition, all farmers’ efforts are aimed at achieving maximum productivity per unit of time in today's agricultural economy. Therefore, modern farmers prefer multitasking machinery that copes with performing simultaneously several operations on the soil preparation that promotes the reducing the number of the tractor passes on the field and it is not only reduces the total fuel consumption, but also prevents soil consolidation. DESIGNED FOR PERFECT SEEDBED CULTIVATION CHERVONETS universal energy-efficient seedbed cultivator of LOZOVA MACHINERY– one of the most productive one-pass equipment, providing high-quality full-fledged seedbed cultivation for one pass. Moreover, CHERVONETS has an economic benefit, providing less cost ploughing. The implement allows to provide qualitative seedbed cultivation after ploughing for one pass, spending 4 l/ha of fuel at the same time. CHERVONETS provides tillage up to 10 ha/h due to working width of 8 meters. It is not less important that it is trailed with tractors with power of 130-170 hp, the most widespread on the Ukrainian territory. Despite the fact that CHERVONETS has declared itself on the market only in 2015, the first farmers have already esteemed its high functionality and efficiency in soil tillage. The owner of the farming LEVADA K (Kiev Region, Boguslavsky district) Nikolay Vysotenko preferred CHERVONETS, when choosing seedbed cultivator. «I chose CHERVONETS with the «duckfoot» tine. Our fields are on the high slope, and earlier there was a problem of working tools and tines breakdown at turns during cultivation. CHERVONETS copes perfectly with tillage on the turns and causes no problems due to more narrow tines and simple adjustment of tillage depth». It is necessary to point out that CHERVONETS can be equipped with various tines (both with spring-loading and without) and working tools for failure-free work on any types of soils: duckfoot tine (for solid weeds cutting), "goose tine" (multi-purpose), revolving chisel tip (for deeper tillage or work on rough soils). CHERVONETS is equipped with the bodies of leading producers of spare parts, like BELLOTA (Spain) and Ama (Italy). The owner of the farming LEVADA K thinks that another advantage of LOZOVA MACHINERY implement is that it can be both mounted and semi-trailed. «Taking into account the slopes, I can use the implement as semi-trailed, without fear of toppling over the equipment at the turns and good quality of the tillage at the problem areas. The using of the implement in mounted way is convenient for those farmers, who have flat fields", – points out Nikolay Vysotenko and summarizes: – In general, CHERVONETS showed perfect results in seedbed cultivation. The soil is perfect for any seeding after its cultivation. I’m absolutely satisfied with the purchase». It is necessary to point out one of the design features of CHERVONETS – the S-shaped spring tine, which creates favorable conditions for optimal water-air regime in the soil. The elastic deformation of the tine leads to the oscillating movement of the shares in the soil, which vibrate both in the direction of movement and in the lateral direction and in the same time ensure the minimum movement in height. Due to this the strict maintenance of the necessary depth of tillage is guaranteed, the quality of crumbling is increased, draught resistance is reduced that helps to prevent the working tool from blockage with soil and stubble remains. The distance between the working tools of 125 mm contributes to the high-quality processing of the soil along the entire width of the unit. The farmers know that the soil should be slightly sealed after loosening to prevent evaporation of moisture. The rollers of CHERVONETS seedbed cultivator care about this. The sprouts are supplied with moisture due to soil consolidation. This creates the best conditions for emergency of even harmonious sprouts and thus favour to picking heavy yields. The optimal soil crumbling and smoothing is provided by the swinging suspension of double tooth rollers, their different diameter and shape (pipe and tooth) and also full cover of the implement working width by the rollers. All these technical features and some other design features allow CHERVONETS seedbed cultivator to work in different conditions on different soil types, creating perfect seedbed. The huge experience of Lozova Forging-Mechanical Plant is reflected in deep preparing for production, in maintenance of strict quality control of metal and all producing technologies. It also puts agricultural implements of LOZOVA MACHINERY in one line with the best foreign analogs and in the same time provides affordable prices as domestic producer. Choosing the strategy of import-substitution and get into trend, LOZOVA MACHINERY continues to put the new energy-efficient modern tillage implements to the market, caring about the soil and realizing the farmer’s needs!

An independent expertise of the gulden subsoiler

AN INDEPENDENT EXPERTISE OF THE GULDEN SUBSOILER In August 2017 in Krasnopavlovka village (Lozova district, Kharkiv region) the UkrNDIPVT named after L. Pogoreliy tested the GULDEN subsoiler, manufactured by LOZOVA MACHINERY. The task was to determine water retention of the soil treated with GULDEN in comparison with the untreated soil with stubble according to the method of UkrNDIPVT named after L. Pogoreliy. CONCLUSIONS Subsoiler assembled with deep loosening tines and additional plowshares provides the highest specific water penetration, which in the initial phase is 2,7 times higher than the same value of the untreated soil with stubble. In general, after 30 minutes of observations we get 4 times increase in the integral water penetration compared to the control field. Subsoiler with only deep loosening tines working at depth of 45 cm, provides in the initial phase the 1,8 times higher specific retention and 2,2 times higher integral retention compared to control field.

Ducat-6: it's time to till!

The yield of any crop depends on properly prepared soil. This is an obvious fact. And one of the most important tasks is to choose the best tillage technologies. Stubble ploughing; basic, minor, seedbed soil preparation for cereals, technical and fodder crops, for sowing of winter crops on a seeded fallow; chopping and incorporation of plant remains of previous crops and weed vegetation – all this is the specialization of the DUCAT disc harrow from LOZOVA MACHINERY - the only Ukrainian manufacturer of the full line of harrows with a working width from 2,5 to 16,75 m. DUCAT-6: IT'S TIME TO TILL! New LOZOVA MACHINERY product: 6-meter harrow DUCAT-6 The main advantage of the new harrow is an incredible efficiency - increased by 25% even in comparison with the DUCAT-5 harrow, which itself is 1,5 times more effective than conventional harrows. The harrow can be mounted to the low-power tractors from 170 hp. DUCAT-6 is equipped with 50 discs with diameter of 566 mm. The working width is 6,25 m. The harrow intensively mixes soil and plant mass, chops and distributes straw with a high durability in harsh conditions, providing good seedbed preparation. The fuel consumption is 30% lower, while efficiency is 1,5 times higher, and it is possible to work without blocking at high speeds (up to 20 km/h). DUCAT-6 is assembled with: • spring tine (protects bearing unit); • super reliable HARP AGRO UNIT (maintenance-free); • discs made of high-quality hardened boron steel from Bellota. Another important feature is no-use of disc gang with a single axis, which makes it possible to work in moisture conditions with a lot of plant mass, while blocking of inter-discs space is eliminated. A spring 3D tine protects bearing unit and enables to follow field contours, to work on fields with a lot of stones, and eliminates rising of the harrow. Thus, the DUCAT-6 disc harrow shows the best innovative solutions of our engineers, multiplying advantages of the other harrow from this line, saving you time and costs.

DUCAT-6 DISC HARROW – RESULT IN ONE PASS! After the DUCAT-3 harrow, presented in 2016, this year LOZOVA MACHINERY expanded the range of disc harrows with a six-meter harrow DUCAT-6. Both harrows are oriented both to Ukrainian and European markets. They are distinguished by a high speed of soil tillage at low power consumption. One of the main advantages to be appreciated by the customer – the harrows absolutely do not need maintenance, as there are no lubrication points. The DUCAT-6 is designed for tractors with power from 170 hp. The harrow is assembled with 50 discs of premium class, 566 mm in diameter, made of boron hardened steel. Discs spacing of 125 mm and low-frequency lateral tine vibrations provide cultivated seedbed, even by depth and without furrows. The harrow is used for seedbed preparation with mixing of soil and plants, and uniform distribution of straw. Due to various contour following systems and uniform loads across working tools, the DUCAT-6 is effective even on fields with rugged relief. Learn more DUCAT GOLD heavy disc harrow – GOLD STANDARD OF HARROWING DUCAT-GOLD with working width of 8 m has no analogues on Ukrainian market. It is assembled with 2 rows of serrated hemispherical discs with diameter of 724mm and thickness of 6 mm, which provide intensive mixing of the soil and plant mass, working at depth up to 20 cm. A special feature is symmetrical arrangement of discs, which eliminates side displacement at depth. Big discs diameter allows to cope with any stubble remains even al loads of 260 kg. Many years of successful application of DUCAT harrows show a great economical effect: maintenance-free HARP AGRO UNIT bearing units and individual spring-loaded 3D tines ensure 1,5 higher efficiency and savings of up to 30% in fuel consumption compared to traditional harrows. Learn more LIRA XL HEAVY SPRING HARROW – CONTINUATION OF THE LEGEND Another breakthrough of the year is a new heavy spring-tooth harrow LIRA XL (15 and 21 meters), which can be additionally equipped with a drag harrow LARI. The base is a frame with five rows of teeth, which are 16 mm in diameter and 762 mm in height, mounted on a parallelogram. The teeth have a high durability and wear resistance. Another advantage is an adjustable attack angle of 45-90˚ and pressure on the soil from 400 to 860 kg. The LIRA XL ensures 5 operations in one pass! For example, early spring harrowing and loosening of the top layer to a depth of 2-10 cm simultaneously: keep moisture; encourage germination of weeds to be destroyed; level the soil and prepare it for seeding; incorporate fertilizers and pesticides; uniformly distribute stubble remains. Parallelogram suspension of working sections allow to keep contact with a soil despite of a rugged relief. A number of design solutions significantly increases capacity of heavy tooth harrows up to 25 ha/h. The harrow can be used with tractors from 160 hp (LIRA-15) or 300 hp (LIRA-21). Learn more HEAVY DRAG HARROW LARI – PERFECT SMOOTH FIELD The LARI heavy drag harrow (15 m and 21 m) is designed for soil loosening and levelling, clods crumbling and weeds destroying. It consists of 16 (8+8) rows of tooth sections. Flexible connection of sections provides perfect contours following and eliminates their blocking. Teeth are made of special material and have a special attack angle, which ensures soil treatment to a depth of 8 cm. There can be two work regimes – active and passive. An optimal angle is 40° (50° relatively to ground), and more aggressive angle is 22°. LARI makes it possible to start field works earlier than other machines in any weather conditions. For example, unlike a seedbed cultivator, the drag harrow is almost insensitive to soil moisture, because there is simply nothing to stick and block due to design. Farmers will certainly multiply their future crop with LARI, which will keep the moisture, destroy the crust and create perfect smooth field for further works in advance. Learn more DINAR ROTARY HARROW – AERATE THE SOIL DINAR-6,4 rotary harrow consists of 72 balance-mounted star wheels. Each solid star is made of gray cast iron and has a diameter of 534 mm. Rotary harrow is used for treatment of tilled, technical and grain crops. The unit has width of 6,4 m. Required tractor power is over 110 hp. Balance mounting of working tools provides constant contact with a soil and reduces loads on bearings. Stars with the oblique teeth make it possible to control work intensity. In the first mode working tools penetrate into the soil vertically, providing soil aeration. The second mode is more intensive and used for stubble treatment. Additional spring teeth can be mounted for removing weeds in “white tread” phase. Special wheels allow to control penetration depth.
