Speed-Loc

Combines the speed of knock-on with the security of bolt-on

bourgault tillage tools speed-loc system

Nearly 20 years ago, Martin Lishman Ltd introduced the Bourgault Tillage Tools Speed-Loc system to UK farmers. Now standard fit on all major UK manufactured cultivators, Speed-Loc can be retrofitted to almost any tined cultivator on the market.

Once the tine is fitted with a Speed-Loc Adapter, the whole range of Bourgault Tillage Tools is available for use

The Benefits of the Speed-Loc Adapter

Fast & easy point changing – a few minutes rather than hours saves time and money

Upper stop keeps points at the same depth – critical for uniform crop emergence

Spring-loaded pin prevents loss of points – backed by a 100% guarantee

Durable and long lasting – heat treated casting and stainless steel components

Fits most types and shapes of tine – from standard to heavy duty applications

A few hits and the point is locked on

Speed-Release Tool depresses the locking pin and the point is easily removed by striking the top

Correct PPE should always be worn when knocking points on and off!

Bolts seat closely in the casting to avoid twisting on the tine

Upper stop ensures points run at consistent depth

Heat treated stainless steel locking pin provides a secure locking mechanism that will not rust or corrode. Solid urethane spring forces the locking pin through the tine point to prevent loss in the field. 

Tine of cultivator

Special side-locking nuts should always be used to prevent vibration loosening the adapter on the tine

Vaderstad Top Down

Uses the same specially designed Speed-Loc adapter (200-QCA-5030) as the Horsch Terrano tine. Typically fitted with 9” (23cm) sweeps (200- PWV-0908). The Vaderstad Cultus tine accepts the 200-QCA-4710 Speed-Loc adapter.

Will the Speed-Loc adapter fit my tine?

Providing the bolt-hole spacing and angle is suitable (nearly all European tines are) the Speed-Loc adapter will fit the tine

With a Speed-Loc adapter fitted, the Bourgault Tillage Tools range of Quick-Change sweep points is available for use

Sweeps

There are over 50 Speed-Loc Points to choose from: 6mm or 8mm, standard or heavy duty and seed-bed preparation or primary cultivation tools. After nearly 20 years use in the UK a pattern of types to suit different machines in our range of soils has emerged and are usually available from stock. The most commonly used points are 8mm thick from the standard duty (200 series) range. Some popular examples are shown below.
