Product Description

European-Style Tillage

The innovative Great Plains Short Disk™ combines European-style parallel gangs with the demands of rugged North American terrain to provide consistent primary tillage. While traditional short disks utilize 18-20" diameter disc blades, the aggressive Short Disk is designed to endure high-residue field conditions with 24" diameter discs to cut the ground up to 7" deep, maximizing trash flow and leaving a smooth finish on both the top and bottom.

With the speed and maneuverability of European disks, the Short Disk accurately follows uneven ground contours for consistent performance in varying field conditions. Its rollers adjust hydraulically from the tractor cab to either increase or decrease the consolidation pressure to firm the soil to the desired degree. In contrast to other parallel gang machines, the Short Disk’s blades split center, throwing out from the front and in from the back, to prevent “dog tracking” and ensure a consistent cutout throughout the field.

The Short Disk also features exclusive PEER® Maintenance-Free Tapered-Roller Bearing Hubs with 6-lip cassette seals per disk, as well as PEER® Maintenance-Free Bearings in the rolling attachments, extending the life of the bearings and reducing maintenance costs.

Fall Tillage: How to Deal with Ruts

Before and After: Turbo-Max® Vertical Tillage Implement
November 11, 2014

A rainy fall harvest season has caused wet soil conditions and moderate to severe ruts in many fields across the country. These ruts must be fixed before spring planting. Fall tillage needs to eliminate the ruts to ensure a good, uniform seedbed in the spring.

Farmers should analyze the severity of the ruts, then choose the tillage tool that matches their specific field needs—in many cases, the solution may involve a two-pass system. Our full line of tillage equipment is designed to meet the needs of each operation and eliminate ruts in a variety of field conditions.
