TATU GAPCR HD 8013 OFFSET DISC Features
Big Disc Blades
The standard fitment of 34″x9mm scalloped discs should be the first clue that this machine will dig. Add the option of upgrading to 36″x12mm scalloped or plain discs will confirm it.
Disc blades are fitted on 340mm spacing which gives a great mix of depth and full cut out, leaving an amazing finish for such a big disc harrow.
Big Gang Axles
There is no point having big disc blades fitted up to a small axle as they will just break or bend. The GAPCR HD may have gone a little over-the-top though, with the machine being fitted with 2 1/2″ round axles.
This means that you can confidently use the entire weight and depth of cut in the harshest conditions and know that the axles will handle it.
Big Oil Bath Bearings
To couple with big disc blades & big axles are the mammoth Tatu OIL BATH BEARINGS. These are double taper roller bearings with Duo-Cone Seals. These are some of the biggest bearings on offer!
And the best part of being Oil Bath bearings is that they do not need daily or even weekly greasing. They are basically maintenance free. Just check the oil level ever now and then!
Big Tyre Packages
Depending on the size of machine will depend on what tyre package you get. Either way they are big and can handle the weight of machine year after year….
From 21 – 25 plate models are fitted with two 15.0/70×18 tyres.
From 29 plate models and up, they are fitted with four 400/60×15.5 tyres.
Hydraulic Adjust Hitch
During operation the hitch may need to ride up & down to allow the offset frame to follow the ground. During transport you want this rigid to ensure stability and to avoid a rocking motion.
With such a heavy machine, a standard spring setup wouldn’t be suffice. So the GAPCR HD is fitted with an adjustable hydraulic cylinder to ensure the operator can setup the hitch perfectly for each process.
Oversize Signs Standard
Big heavy offsets like this usually means being oversize, and that can pose its own troubles when moving the machines around from farm to farm.
To make this as easy as possibly for the operator the GAPCR HD is fitted standard with an Oversize Steel Sign, Oversize flags and built-in flag holders.
Big Double "C Section" Frame
To ensure that the machine is strong enough to handle the big discs, axles & bearings, plus the harsh Australian conditions that this machine is designed for, Tatu have manufactured the main centre frame from two 1/2″ thick “C” sections, effectively making the top and bottom plates 1″ thick!
This not only means it is super strong, it also gives it excellent weight to ensure that those big 34″discs can dig deep, even in the most challenging conditions.

Simple & Effective
Easy to setup & adjust, the gang aggressiveness can be adjusted by changing the front and rear angles. This also can assist with making the plough pull straight behind the tractor.
