Product Description

Hybrid Chisel

In the fall, vertical tillage eliminates the soil’s density layers, leaving it ready for a one-pass tool before spring planting. Turbo-Chisel is engineered to size and incorporate residue into the top 4-5" of soil, while leaving the surface level enough for a single-pass tool in the spring. The Turbo-Chisel is available in 14 sizes, with a choice of shanks and optional rear attachments.

Turbo-Chisel starts by slicing residue with exclusive 22" Great Plains Turbo Coulters on 7½" spacing. Blades run on a 1¾" gang bolt with cast spools, putting the weight “in the gang” for outstanding performance and reliability. Gang bearings are field-proven, PEER® Maintenance-Free 211 Bearings with cast housings mounted to heavy-duty 1" x 3" C-shank standards. Plus, Turbo-Chisel’s coulter depth is hydraulically adjustable for on-the-go depth control.

This machine is offered in rigid 7-15 shank models or folding 9-23 shank models, with a recommended horsepower requirement of 30 hp per shank. Units can be equipped with optional chisel shanks, as well as optional Great Plains chopper wheels to crumble clods while leveling soil. 

While there are other coulter chisels available on the market, there is only one Turbo-Chisel!

Product Features

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. The Heavy-Duty Toggle Trip Shank has a 2,450-pound horizontal trip force and will automatically reset when tripped.

Exclusive 22" Turbo Blades

On 7½" spacing, the 22" Turbo blades enter the soil vertically and leave horizontally, causing a mulching action of both soil and residue while maximizing lateral fracture. Competitive concave-disc tools simply cut off and roll long stringy stalks.

AVAILABLE SHANK COMBINATIONS

Order the Turbo-Chisel the way you want it with two different shank combinations: Standard Chisel (pictured: two shanks on the left) or Heavy-Duty Parabolic (pictured: shank on the far right).

Great Plains Exclusive Maintenance-Free Bearings
Exclusive Maintenance-Free Bearings

These 360° self-aligning bearings are never sideloaded. A six-lip seal on each side locks in grease and prevents contamination, which reduces maintenance time and extends the life of the bearings.

Walking Tandem Axles

Maintain consistent mainframe height for accurate, consistent tillage depth control.

Single-Point Depth Stop

Adjust the depth across the entire width of the machine in one convenient place.

Optional Patented Angled Rear Chopper Wheel Attachment
Optional Patented Angled Rear Chopper Wheel Attachment

Patented angled chopper wheels pull dirt back into shank voids, leveling soil while maintaining the vertically-tilled profile left by the shanks.

Adjustable Coulter Depth

Independently control coulter depth from the cab. This allows the operator to make adjustments to the depth based on field conditions.

What to look for in a vertical tillage tool

When selecting a vertical tillage tool, producers should keep several factors in mind:

Spring Tillage: How to Deal with Ruts

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

Stuck in a rut? Not for long!

With all the additional moisture during fall harvest, the conditions have led to moderately to severely rutted fields around the country. To ensure a nurturing, uniform seedbed and avoid yield-loss, these ruts must be removed prior to spring planting. Ruts cause problems for all types of producers, but they can become an especially unique problem in low disturbance no-till fields. No matter your tillage preference, Great Plains has a solution to combat a variety of field conditions.
