Sunflower Offers New Deep-Tillage Tools

Sunflower Offers New Deep-Tillage Tools
4700 Series in-line ripper comes in several models up to 30-feet width.

Designed primarily for fall deep tillage, Sunflower's new 4700 Series in-line rippers come in three models and five working widths -- out to 30 feet.

The implements are built on main frames constructed of 4X6X 3/8 steel tubing and feature cross braces and gussets for rigidity.

The SF4710 is a 3-point rigid frame available in five or seven shanks and a 20 foot working width. The SF4730-8 is an eight-row machine with a flat fold frame and 20 foot working width. The sF4730-12 is a 12-row pull type with an over-the-center fold frame and works out to 30 feet.

With up to 30-foot working widths, Sunflower's 4700 in-line ripper models work down to 20 inches.

The 4700 Series leaves minimal surface disturbance with its 1.25" shanks rated at 3,500 pound point loads. Shank points are available in 3- and 7-inch widths to meet varying soil conditions.

Optional parabolic shanks are available that work to 16 inches deep.

The 4700 Series will be on display at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, August 28-30.
