Expanding its strip-tillage lineup into large-frame drawn configurations, Orthman Manufacturing Inc. introduces the 1tRIPr XD series of machines. The series is available in 6- to 18-row configurations with a choice of 6- or 9-ton dry fertilizer packages and 1,000-gal. liquid fertilizer capacity. An optional rear hitch can be used with NH3 application. Three new narrow-transport models also permit faster and safer travel.
For farmers who are seeking a true single-pass strip-till and planting operation, the 1tRIPr XD Combo is available in 6- to 16-row systems with an optional tank package that carries up to 1,000 gal. of liquid fertilizer. Fertilizer can be placed at variable depths, and the machine has been engineered to shatter compaction in the root zone for optimum below-ground development.
The price of a folding 8-row 30" machine with a rear nurse tank hitch starts at $84,000. For more information, call (308) 324-4654 or visit www.orthmanag.com.
