6800 Fixed Hitch Cultivator

Reliable & Durable Workhorses

The Bourgault 6800 Fixed Hitch 4-Row Cultivator are multiple purpose tillage units capable of:
  • High disturbance seeding with sweeps and harrows followed by a wing type packer in cultivated or uncultivated soil.
  • Low disturbance seeding with knives and mounted packers in cultivated or uncultivated ground.
  • Primary cultivation with spike
  • Applying fertilizer with sweeps or narrow openers
  • Seed bed preparation
  • Summer fallow cultivation operations
  • Chemical incorporation
 The 6800 is durable fixed hitch cultivator that delivers excellent seeding depth control:
  • The 6800 cultivators built on a 4 row frame construction with trip assemblies mounted a minimum of 61cm apart on the same row. This design gives the 6800 enough trash clearance to perform primary tillage or direct seeding.
  • The trip assemblies are mounted on 20.4 cm spacing so seed rows are narrow.
  • The trip assemblies are very durable and are maintenance free. They can trip up to 55 cm to clear stones.
  • Maintenance kept to a minimum because protective bushings are used in wear areas. 
  • The frames are so strong and durable that many 6800’s have over 40,000 hectares of trouble free cultivating on them.
  • The seeding depth is changed in seconds by adjusting a slide mechanism.
  • The cultivator uses hydraulic cylinders to lift the wing frames, making the cultivator ready for road transport within seconds.
  • The depth control system on the 6800 is a single series hydraulic system.
