Why choose Vertical Tillage? Because Vertical Tillage leaves a uniform, unrestricted soil profile that promotes maximum root development and increased yields. Plants raised in a vertical tillage system exhibit higher drought resistance, reach and utilize more nutrients, and have greater standability due to healthier stalks and root systems. Increase your yields ... by choosing a Vertical Tillage System from Great Plains!
The Great Plains Ultra-Chisel™ brings a new definition to the "chisel plow". This unique floating hitch design provides maximum ground-following capabilities to ensure constant working depth in the most adverse conditions. Combine this with 900 lb. trip force shanks and the producer has unmatched soil-fracturing potential to a working depth of 8". The Ultra-Chisel, available in widths from 21' to 33', will bring even the largest fields down-to-size in a short amount of time.
The Great Plains Inline Sub-Soiler is another step in the evolution of our vertical tillage family designed to eliminate yield-robbing compaction layers created by horizontal tillage tools such as plows, disks, and sweep implements.
If your goal is to size and incorporate residue in the top 4-5" of top soil while leaving the soil level enough for a single-pass tool in the spring, the Great Plains Turbo-Chisel® is the tool of choice!
Turbo with a Twist
The Turbo-Chopper® from Great Plains combines our aggressive Turbo Blades with the action of a turbo-patterned chopper reel. This allows for a “crisscross” pattern for chopping residue and working the soil while still maintaining the benefits of vertical tillage.
Taking Vertical Tillage "To the Max"
The introduction of Turbo-Max® brings true vertical tillage to new heights. The ability to provide unmatched seedbeds through more aggressive ground leveling and weed removal, enhanced residue sizing, and unsurpassed residue coverage while continuing to work in the vertical plane, makes Turbo-Max truly unique in the industry today.
Leading the Pack
The Series II Turbo-Till® builds on the solid reputation of the original Turbo-Till as the most versatile vertical tillage tool available. It utilizes two ranks of our exclusive Turbo Coulters to aggressively chop residue without hairpinning. Turbo-Till effectively manages residue and reduces compaction in a wide range of conditions, providing a consistent well-prepared seedbed for planting.
Ultra-Till® by Great Plains is yet another innovative option in a “systems” approach to vertical tillage. It is intended for secondary field operations and one-pass field finishing prior to planting. The Ultra-Till can be compared to a field finisher or cultivator, but with one major difference. Because it’s not equipped with shank-mounted shovels, it will not create yield-robbing horizontal soil density layers. It is these compacted layers that roots have trouble penetrating.
