Vertical tillage equipment: New for 2016

Almost a decade since their introduction, vertical tillage implements remain a popular class of equipment.  Companies have launched a lot of new models for 2016, all geared to provide the same hallmark traits that the original machines offered. 

Vertical tillage implements are designed to manage crop residue while lightly tilling the ground at high working speeds that top 10 mph. Some of the newer models have been designed with bigger, more angled blades that go a little deeper in the ground and work more soil, a trend we started to see in 2012

We’ve covered most of the new models that you’ll see on lots this year, and here are links to those stories in case you’re looking to buy.
