New hydraulic tyne improves performance on Flexi-Coil ST820

The popular Flexi-Coil ST820 is now offered with a new hydraulic tyne developed specifically to meet the needs of Australian farmers who demand a cultivator with hydraulic break out and the capability to perform in a range of conditions.  

This new feature further enhances the flexibility of the ST820, which has been hailed as the ideal precision tillage tool for a variety of conditions. With its flexible frame and floating hitch the ST820 has been designed to closely follow the contours of the land, while reducing stress on components and providing a long, trouble free life.  

“The new tyne allows farmers to vary tyne break out from the tractor seat,” said Steve Mulder, Flexi-Coil Sales and Marketing Manager. “Operators can easily and comfortably change tyne break out as field conditions change, which is important in Australia where conditions can vary dramatically across the field from rocky patches to limestone reefs. Farmers now have the flexibility to choose a high break out when they’re working in tough conditions, or a lower breakout for softer conditions.”  

The hydraulic tyne, in conjunction with the accumulator, cushions the return tyne stroke, and is also better suited to seeding where trips are working day in and day out.  

Tyne durability and consistent seeding depth are delivered with enhanced hydraulic control. “The softer return stroke gives the tyne a longer life, even when working in tough conditions. Plus, when compared to the speed of spring action, the hydraulic control is durable and ensures consistent sowing depth.”  

The hydraulic tyne features a nitrided steel rod which resists corrosion - a common problem associated with liquid fertiliser use and exposure to the elements. “Some of our competitors use chrome; which is a more porous material and hence has a shorter lifespan. Our studies have shown that the use of nitride steel rods improves corrosion resistance by up to 50 per cent, along with offering improved impact resistance,” Steve said.  

Durability is also delivered as the cylinder has a short stroke which displaces a low volume of oil, generating less heat. “The end result is greater reliability and durability of components,” Steve added.  

The ST820 is available in three or five-section models with 183mm, 229mm or 305mm (7’2”, 9" or 12") row spacing. The three-section model ranges in width configurations from 7.6m – 13.4m (25’ to 44’).  

Depending on the working width configuration, the ST820 3 section model ranges in transport width from 5.7m – 6.6m (18’8" to 21’8") and ranges in transport height from 3.8m – 5.2m (12’6" to 17’11").  

The five-section model ranges in width configurations from 13.1m – 18.9m (43’ to 62’). Depending on the width configuration, the ST820 ranges in transport width from 5.7m – 6.6m (18’8" to 21’8") and ranges in transport height from 4.2m – 5.1m (13’10" to 16’10”).
