Landoll VTPlus tillage system introduces next-generation vertical technology

Marysville, Kansas, September 10, 2009 — Vertical Tillage is a popular term heard today. The Landoll VTplus was developed with input from producers’ issues on competitive tools they were using. Ability to anchor residue, shallow working depths, mixes more soil, better weed kill across the machine, and the ability to level small ruts left by the previous operation, are a few of the points that the Landoll VTplus was designed to address. The smooth blades allow the unit to work in wetter conditions when needed, and will stay sharper over time when compared to fluted blades typically found on competitive models.

The 10° Advantage - The gangs on the VTplus are set at a predetermined 10 degree angle. This angle combined with the ultra-shallow concavity blades provides the lateral movement of soil needed to mix with the residue so it is anchored and not left on the surface. Residue not mixed with the soil is prone to wind and water erosion. Shallow working depths coupled with the mixing action of the blades, makes the VTplus the ultimate tool for sizing, leveling, and warming your seedbed. Available in 23' - 33' working widths, the Landoll VT Plus is positioned to increase the popularity of vertical tillage practices and the yield increases associated with it.
