Product Description

Aggressive Primary Tillage Tool

If you are looking for an aggressive primary tillage tool that doesn’t leave your fields as rough or require tilling as deep as a traditional disc ripper, check out the latest addition to Great Plains’ award-winning tillage line: the Max-Chisel™.

Built on the same rugged platform as the Great Plains Turbo-Chisel®, the new Max-Chisel utilizes two opposing rows of exclusive concave turbo-wave blades with a patented “samurai edge”. The blades aggressively remove root balls while mixing and incorporating residue in the top 4 to 5 inches of soil, pinning it to the ground to accelerate the decaying process.

Mounted to individual C-shanks, 24" blades on 15" spacings allow plenty of trash clearance. All feature maintenance-free tapered bearings in a cast hub and 6-lip interlocking seals to keep grease in and dirt out.

Max-Chisel tills the soil more aggressively than a traditional chisel, but leaves a level surface, allowing a single-pass tool, such as Great Plains Disc-O-Vator® or Turbo-Max®, to finish the field in front of your planter. Fifteen-inch shank spacing and segmented chopper reels work together to pull dirt back into the shank voids, leveling the soil while maintaining the vertically-tilled profile left by the shanks. 

Max-Chisel is available in two rigid models from 11' 6" to 14' and two folding versions of 16' 6" and 19'. All feature hydraulically-adjustable disc gang depth control and heavy-duty toggle-trip reset shanks that can till up to 12" deep. With 2,450 pounds of horizontal trip force, these shanks will not pull out of hard ground like a traditional chisel. Medium-duty shanks are also available.

Unlock your field’s hidden yield potential with a new Max-Chisel from Great Plains.

Great Plains Toggle-Trip Reset Shank
Hybrid Machine with Heavy-Duty Toggle-Trip Shanks

When equipped with heavy-duty toggle-trip shanks, this “hybrid” unit works in the 8" to 12" range (rather than the 13" to 15" range required by disk rippers) while horizontally fracturing soil much better than a disk chisel. Toggle-trip shanks can’t float. They either run at the set depth or trip – there is no inbetween.
