Great Plains Vertical Tillage Rigid
True vertical tillage has become the standard for yield-boosting seedbed preparation. The industry-leading Turbo-Max offers agronomic benefits of both spring vertical tillage and autumn residue management. Turbo-Max blades are spaced 7½” (19cm) apart on two rows of coulter gangs. Rear gangs offset the front gangs, splitting the blade spacing to 3¾” (9.5cm) for superior residue sizing in one pass. Gang angle is hydraulically adjustable on-the-go from 0° to 6°, offering greater flexibility to match changing field conditions.
In autumn, run the machine with gangs at an angle to cover more residue. This will accelerate the decaying process and prevent residue from blowing away. In the spring, keep the gangs straight to create a uniform, vertically-tilled seedbed perfect for planting.
For larger operations, the 4800TM Turbo-Max model works with today’s high-horsepower tractors to meet growing labor and productivity demands. With a 48′ (14.6m) working width, this wider machine will effectively manage residue at a faster pace, addressing rural conservation and water quality issues through a large-scale reduced tillage system.
With available working widths ranging from 8½’ to 48′, Turbo-Max delivers true vertical tillage to producers of all sizes. For lower horsepower tractors, the compact 8½’ (2.6m) 850TM is ideal for manure incorporation, residue management, seedbed preparation, and aeration for grass renovation after hard grazing seasons. Running Turbo-Max can also improve water quality and contribute to conservation efforts on HEL grounds.
Turbo-Seeder™ cover crop attachment available for 1200TM, 1500TM, 3000TM, 3500TM, and 4000TM Turbo-Max models.
