Discaerator 3000

An outstanding single-pass deep soil cultivator, the Discaerator 3000 incorporates surface trash and stubble; heaves and aerates soil; and then consolidates the surface for a weather-proof finish - saving time, money, and fuel consumption.


Equipped with two rows of shock-resistant concave discs which break up clods to create a fine tilth, the Discaerator delivers the perfect conditions for crop establishment.

Created for farmers and contractors,  the machine has a productive 3.0m working width and features a choice of five or seven subsoiler legs and packer rollers.

Single-pass cultivation and oilseed rape seeding

The Discaerator 3000 breaks up the ground; creates perfect powdery soil; plants the seed; and then rolls it - all in a single pass - saving time and labour costs and boosting productivity.

Gas-strut break back legs

McConnel's innovative breakaway auto-reset system protects the legs when they make contact with a hard or immovable object. Each leg snaps backwards to protect it from damage and then returns to position once the hazard has been passed – keeping operators working and preventing unnecessary downtime.


  • Cost-effective single-pass cultivation
  • Highly effective at breaking up clods
  • Creates a perfect seed bed
  • Increases crop yields
  • Proven reliability
