Kuhn's new Durakarb power harrow blade, with tungsten carbide plates, offers an extended service life, especially in stony areas.

The tungsten carbide plates are made from several chemical components including tungsten and carbon are compressed and heated to create a hard and highly wear resistant material.

Durakarb features four plates with a height of 136mm and a rounded frontal profile that allows earth flow to be split in such a way as to limit wear of the tine sides. The specific “V” shape of the plate brazed in the tine allows a large area of contact between the tine and the plate, greatly reducing the risk of breakage or loss of the plate in the event of a heavy impact.

The profile does not add any material thickness, meaning the tines retain a low power requirement.

The Kuhn Durakarb option is available on the HR 103 / 104, 1003 / 1004 FAST-FIT 2 generation series, as well as on the new HR 1020 / 1030 and 1040 series, for mounting in place of standard, or blades with Durakuhn carbide coating.
