New Tech in Tillage Tools

Complete with front blade gang assemblies, the 6205 Landsman features the hybrid excalibur blade, which combines the residue cutting action of a coulter with vertical soil movement. A 32-flute blade design provides greater soil penetration and smaller clod size compared to smooth blades. Each blade has a flat center with a reverse crimp to offer 20% more blade strength and reduced soil buildup. 

With a robust gang design, the tillage tool features 211 regreasable SuperSeal bearings on 13⁄4" gang arbor bolts. The bearings are mounted to rigid arms on a 3"x5" gang beam. The trash bar mounts have been relocated for more underframe clearance. 

A crank-style adjustment has been incorporated into the hydraulic depth control system, and an upgraded depth stop valve offers precise depth settings. 

The 6205 Landsman is available in sizes ranging from 18' to 45', and the 6405 Landstar machines range from 18' to 36'.
