The Sunflower 6630 Vertical Tilling System easily cuts through tough residue and opens up cold, wet fields for earlier spring planting and a full growing season.
Vertical tillage results in more even soil temperature and consistent soil moisture throughout the vertical soil profile, and creates a soil surface that resists wind and water erosion.
The 6630 is designed to establish an ideal field surface by sizing and mixing plant residues with the upper layers of the soil profile. This allows the soil to absorb sunlight and evenly warm the upper two to three inches of soil so crops can begin growing early and achieve their maximum potential.
SoilRazor™ VT disc blades, from Ingersoll Tillage Group, utilize a unique fluted wave pattern design easily cuts through tough residue and efficiently penetrates the soil.
The 6630 Series helps deliver a consistent, ridge-free field. Front and rear gangs are offset, allowing the front gang to provide an even, clean cut the entire width of the machine while the rear gang feathers and levels the soil, unlike heads-up or end-to-end gang placement, which can leave an uncut ridge of soil and create a ridge/valley effect.
Even with the low horsepower requirement it can still be operated at up to 8 miles per hour, 30 percent faster than a conventional disc harrow. As a result, it allows growers to cover more acres with less fuel, helping increase return on investment in both time and dollars.
The UHMW plastic bearings eliminate metal-to-metal contact in the machine’s lift system, so no lubrication is required. With no metal-to-metal friction, discs stay in adjustment and provide a level field.
They control the leading disc gangs to ensure uniform depth, and the gauge wheel swivel-pivot design prevents bending due to side loads.
Equipped with heavily braced wing frames that withstand horizontal stress and rotational torque during operation.
