Precision tillage is becoming a key management tactic for producers who want to provide proper seedbed prep yet preserve soil-saving residues. Summers is meeting that need with the new VRT2530 Variable Rate Tillage Tool.
Available in sizes up to 40 feet wide, the VRT2530 series features a front row of dual-mounted disk blades and a rear row of gang-mounted coulter blades. The front disk blades are highly concave for soil mixing and include a manually adjustable angle setting from 5 to 24 degrees. The rear coulter blades are fixed at a 0 degree angle for vertical tillage performance.
Using the unit's hydraulic hitch, the operator can shift weight between the front and rear blades. By putting more weight on the front you can increase soil mixing, pushing weight to the rear boosts vertical tillage performance and residue sizing with less soil disturbance. Weight can be shifted front and rear to achieve the right combination of benefits.
Five blade options are available for the rear coulter gang. A variety of field finishing attachments are also available, including three-bar harrows, four-bar harrows, rolling choppers and a harrow/rolling basket combination. The rolling baskets have a patented internal mud scraper, as well a new hydraulic lift and down pressure feature.
