Soil consolidation also prevents evaporation and loss of soil humidity (highly important in arid areas), and stimulates the germination of weeds present in the surface layer, which are then easily destroyed before planting (false planting technique).
Carrier can also be equipped with grader blades (Crossboard), front harrows (to distribute the stubble of the previous crop) or the "Crosscutter" that can shred an intermediate crop or larger residues.
Moreover, the discs are fixed on the Carrier on independent arms, themselves mounted to the main frame via a rubber suspension system, which greatly reduces impacts and the wear of the machine, as compared to a classic disc harrow. The bearings of the rollers themselves are also mounted on rubber shock absorbers. Shocks absorbed by the machine and the wear thereof is thus greatly reduced.
