Product Description

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.

This unit offers the versatility of a fall tillage tool, combined with its use as a spring tillage unit for seedbed preparation. The “crisscross” pattern of this unit allows aggressive, uniform residue sizing. The Turbo Coulters are 20" in diameter with 10" spacing, followed by the 18" diameter chopper reels. Both gangs of coulter and chopper reels are mounted on heavy 3" C-shanks with maintenance-free 211 bearings.

The 18" chopper reels consist of six 4-1/2" high carbon steel blades. The unique spiral design allows constant contact with the soil to maximize cutting and reduce the vibration experienced with competitive reels. The chopper reels work perpendicularly to the Turbo Coulters, providing a smooth seedbed for your planter. Our patented rolling harrow and reel combination is the recommended rear attachment for the ultimate seedbed for your planter.

Which Vertical Finish Tool is Right for Me?

Great Plains Tillage: Turbo-Till®
March 10, 2015

A vertical tillage system requires producers to maintain uniform density in the soil profile.
