Ovlac´s Mini is designed to combine the advantages of traditional ploughing and minimum tillage.

Traditional ploughing is undoubtedly the best and most sustainable method of pest control. In the case of organic farming, it is even the only one possible, because it does not allow the application of pesticides.

The Mini has been specifically designed as a shallow plough to manage large volumes of waste at a shallow depth (between 8 and 20 cm). This shallow turning favours the formation of cavities where air and water properly decompose the straw and mineralise it, producing a clay-humus complex that increases the natural fertility of the soil and, therefore, its long-term productivity.

On one hand, the action of the coulters breaks the capillarity of the soil which helps to reduce evaporation and conserve moisture in the deep layers, especially during dry periods.

On the other hand, the Mini works out of the furrow, which completely avoids bottom compaction.

In addition, the Mini's shallow operation reduces power consumption more than proportionally. Working at 15 cm requires less than half the power of working at 30 cm. This makes larger working widths possible. Up to 40% more than with a traditional plough with the same power. Traditional ploughing with working widths typical of minimum tillage techniques.

Plus, to this reduction in operating costs, the Mini is also designed to be simple and lightweight, yet - or perhaps because of this - extremely robust.

In addition, one of the distinguishing features of Ovlac implements is the fixed hitch or Ovlac's own oscillating shaft; the latter provides automatic adjustment of the draft line and the lateral drift of the plough, ensuring that the plough always works straight. Its automatic locking during lifting or transport makes it an essential safety feature.

Main advantages:

  • Up to 4,2 m working width.
  • Hydraulic folding for a 3 m transport width.
  • Eco Plus body with 8mm mouldboards and forged shares.
  • Leafspring or Hydraulic auto reset protection.
