A no-till point that is approximately 10″ (25cm) wide is used with the ¾” (19mm) no-till shank. The no-till point minimises surface disturbance and maximises soil-structure-shatter below the surface. It also increases the amount of exposed surface residue and buries very little trash.
With 1″ (2.5cm) solid rods, the 16″ diameter (41cm) berm conditioners mounted to each shank help provide a level surface, enabling single-pass seedbed preparation. These are standard equipment.
Adjustable Gauge Wheel
A screw jack makes adjusting the gauge wheels simple and easy.
The 3/4″ (19cm) no-till shank in most soil conditions, only leaves a shank slot exposed on the soil surface and shows a gentle uplifting of the earth between shanks. Therefore, it should be used where less ground disturbance is desired. Replaceable wear shins are standard.
With 3000 lb. (1360kg) trip force, the Auto-Reset Shanks provide stop-free operation in areas where sub-surface obstructions exist.
The Great Plains Sub-Soiler Hitch is quite capable as a tough 3-point pull package. The SSH can turn your 3-point sub-soiler, no-till drill, or other 3-point implement into pull-type machines – no longer requiring the normal hassle of hooking and unhooking to the tractor’s 3-point hitch. The rugged design allows it to handle equipment up to 15,000 (6803kg) pounds. Optional 300-gallon (1135L) fertilizer tank is available.
