Folding Patriot Cultivators

Patriot spreads its wings

Cousins’ Patriot combination cultivators give up to 6.4 metres of working width with loosening legs at 600mm centres, followed by two rows of discs, the company’s new patented 810mm (32”) diameter Razor Rings and a pair of low ground pressure transport wheels.

Since the success of the company’s 3m Patriot cultivator, there have been requests for a range of folding models offering greater working widths. The new range is offered in 4.2, 5.4 and 6.4 options, all folding to within the 3m road transport standard.

The rigid loosening legs can be set to work between 150mm (6”) and 400mm (16”) deep. Cousins own ‘Quickfoot’ one piece bolt points are fitted as standard with ‘Level Lift’ and other points also available.

Like Cousins’ original 3m Patriot the new models feature hydraulically controlled disc sub-frames that can be adjusted to the desired working depth while on the move. Front gangs can be set more or less aggressively relative to the rear according to the soil conditions.

The 500mm (20”) diameter disc blades are mounted on hubs with greasable taper roller bearings. The units are individually mounted on rubber suspension at 125mm (5”) centres.

Following the discs is the new 810mm (32”) diameter HL Razor Ring Packer.  The new packer uses the patented construction of the already well established 650mm diameter model.  The ‘over sized’ 610mm (24”) axle tube contacts the ground, allowing the new packer to support a high load, whilst maintaining consistent depth control.  It leaves a firmed, level and ‘weatherproof’ corrugated finish.

Depth control is maintained by using swing over washers on the front drawbar ram and pin adjustment of the rear 810mm HL Razor Ring Packer. A new self levelling drawbar ensures the removable towing hitch is parallel to the ground at all times.

For transport the machine is fitted with 10 stud braked wheel assemblies, fitted with 600mm wide ‘flotation’ tyres.
