"Disc Shredder" Chops, Pulls Stalks
"Corn farmers who plant on ridges really like the way it pulls stalks out by the roots so they can plant without retilling," says Henry Nuxoll, distributor of a popular "disc shred-der" tillage tool originally designed for cot-ton that's catching on in ridged tilled corn and soybeans as well.
The "Sundance Puller" consists of gangs of round steel blades mounted together in "V's" like disc openers. Each blade is fitted with steel cleats around the outside edge. Developed to pull plants out by the roots and throw them out of the row without disturbing soil, the Sundance Puller allows replanting on beds or ridges without retilling the row. It removes shredded corn stalks at up to 10 mph and works well in wet or dry conditions, according to Nuxoll.
The disc shredders are available on a rigid toolbar or individually-mounted on parallel linkages that allow each pair of discs to move up and down individually on rolling ground. An 8-row model equipped with parallel linkages sells for about $9,000.
