Vertical Tillage Tool

December 10, 2011

Vertical Tillage Tool

Great Plains introduces the Turbo-Max to expand its line of vertical tillage equipment. The Turbo-Max has two coulter gangs, like previous Turbo-Till models, but, with 7½" spacing between each blade, it has 25% closer blade spacing per gang. The gangs are offset so that the second gang splits the first, sizing residue to 3¾" laterally. The machine has the ability to angle the gangs hydraulically on the go to up to 6°. The finishing attachment behind the coulter gangs is the company’s patented rolling spike harrow, which completes the vertical tillage pass by leveling the soil while fracturing any soil not already loosened by the coulter blades.
