The Horsch Joker Compact Disc Tiller is an innovative new concept in tillage that combines speed with effective shallow tillage. The principle is simple. A durable machine capable of high working speeds up to 20 km/h that minimizes tillage passes while adding agronomic benefit. The Joker has proven to be a clever alternative to tine cultivators, tandem discs and seedbed harrows. The main benefits include Time savings, travel faster, smaller machine and more hectares per hour Eliminates the negative effects of regular tandem disc – no compacted soil layer! Consolidation of soil to conserve moisture Intensively mixing of soil and residues Field conditioning and levelling Seedbed preparation The Joker is a very effective seedbed preparation tool. The ability to work at high speeds allows for shallow yet precise cultivation while loosening and consolidating the soil creates optimum planting conditions. Use as a single pass tool for Minimum Till or use to compliment conventional till applications. Residue management Proper residue management is the key in getting a crop to the best start possible. The Joker does an amazing job incorporating high residue crops into the soil leaving a smooth field finish. The unique design of the Joker allows for high residue flow in extreme conditions. The Joker is a valuable implement when incorporating manure, slurry or green crops.

High working speeds

Up to 20 km/h achieving high acreage per day.

Roll Flex packer roller

The Roll Flex system on the Joker is a proven concept that combines the benefits of consolidation while leaving a field smooth and ready to plant. Four ring packers evenly spaced with levelling tines in between provide excellent performance in variable field conditions. The four ring packers can “flex” for a self cleaning action in wet conditions without use of scrapers.

Notched blades

The Joker uses 520 mm (CT & RT), resp. 620 mm (HD) notched disc blades notched blades for aggressive tillage action and optimum penetration. The smaller discs turn faster for better soil mixing. Blades are mounted in pairs on single arm torsion bars for independent action in rocks and varying terrain.

Rubber mount torsion bar

Many disc type implements use a gang axle that creates a maintenance nightmare and residue clearance problems. The Joker uses a unique rubber torsion bar with high shock– absorbing qualities for better movement and clearance. The large rubber torsion system ensures ground following ability, clearance for rocks, and maintains consistent blade angle. The torsion mounting concept also creates a high residue throughput capacity.

Maintenance free bearings

Many discs on implements use grease able bearings. These bearings are often not practical for the fine dirt and material build up associated in tillage. The Joker features the latest bearing technology using an oil-filled bearing sealed with the cutting blade. This technology is proven for low wear and to be maintenance free.

Discs mounted in pairs

Half as many disc carriers resulting in twice as large clearance as compared with conventional disc systems.

Outer eradicator discs

Spade discs are on the outer ends of the discs section and ensure level conditions and eliminate soil ridging.

Easy work depth adjustment

Depth settings are easily achieved with coloured spacers on packer roller assembly. Settings are quick and simple.

Transport width

Transport width on booth CT and RT models are 3.5 m or less. The Joker 3 and 3.5 CT models feature heavy duty CAT II resp. CAT III link mounting. The larger models have CAT III mounting links.

Double Roll Packer (Joker HD)

Double Roll Packer with 550 mm dia. U-profile steel rings. Strong design, low wear, suitable for all types of soil. Resistant to stones, even at high working speeds. Inter-linking rings for self-cleaning properties.
