Product Description

Destroy Layers

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.

The Inline Sub-Soiler’s frame features high-tensile 3/8" wall tubing for added strength and durability. Sub-Soilers are available in 24", 30", 36", 38", or 40" shank spacings and from 7 shanks on 36", 38", or 40", up to 12 on 24". Choose from two shank options: ¾" and 1¼". The ¾" no-till shank and no-till point provide maximum shatter with minimum surface disturbance. The 1¼" straight leg shank creates more surface disturbance for minimum tillage.

Product Features

Point Options
Point Options

Points for the 1¼" Straight-Legged Shanks are available in 2" or 7" widths, and with or without fins (fins minimize blow-out). The 2"-wide point is the least aggressive, while the 7"-wide point is the most aggressive and is used to cover more residue. A no-till point that is approximately 10" wide is used with the ¾" No-Till Shank. The no-till point minimizes surface disturbance and maximizes soil-structure-shatter below the surface. It also increases the amount of exposed surface residue and buries very little trash.

Berm Conditioner
Optional Berm Conditioners

With 1" solid rods, the 16"-diameter berm conditioners mounted to each shank help provide a level surface, enabling single-pass seedbed preparation.

ADJUSTABLE GAUGE WHEEL

A screw jack makes adjusting the gauge wheels simple and easy.

Shank Options
2 Different Shank Options

Options include a 1¼" Straight-Legged Shank or a ¾" No-Till Shank. The no-till shank is not as aggressive as the straight-legged shank in turning the soil over and covering residue. In most soil conditions, the no-till shank only leaves a shank slot exposed on the soil surface and shows a gentle uplifting of the earth between shanks. Therefore, it should be used where less ground disturbance is desired. Replaceable wear shins are standard for either shank option.

Shank Mount Options
Choice of Auto-Reset or Shear Bolt Shank Mounts

With 3000 lb. trip force, the Auto-Reset Shanks provide stop-free operation in areas where sub-surface obstructions exist. Alternatively, the Shear Bolt Mounts provide obstruction protection at a lower purchase cost than the Auto-Reset Shanks.

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.
