Tool for a Smooth Beginning
Built as a one- or two-pass vertical tillage tool, the EarthMaster Verti-Go is available in a 34' width, with additional models on the way. The company is working to increase its footprint in the tillage market and tap into its history with the M&W line. The Verti-Go tillage tool is built with some of the same parts found on the EarthMaster Deep Ripper. It is outfitted with SoilRazor VT blades from Ingersoll, which feature a slight concavity and a sawtooth profile that cuts through
residue. For a smooth finish, the tool is also outfitted with 17"-diameter rolling baskets. It is designed to be run 8 mph to 9 mph and requires 7 hp to 8 hp per foot of working width. The company tested the Verti-Go this past fall on farms from Texas to Iowa and Nebraska. For more information, visit the company website at www.earthmastertillage.com.
