A First-Of-Its-Kind Tillage Tool
A new-style tillage tool showed up at farm shows this winter. It consists of a rotating tine-type aerator combined with a Phoenix rotary harrow.
  Built by Canadian-based Precision Metal Fabricating, the tines on the 22-ft. wide machine dig 8 in. deep. The angle of attack of each 7-ft. section of tines can be adjusted from 0 to 10 ? by pulling a pin. The more the tines are angled, the more they fracture compacted soil.
  By equipping the machine with Phoenix rotary harrow attachments, the surface will be leveled and more residue can be left on top. The machine folds vertically for transport.
  A 22-ft. model sells for about $45,000 or $33,000 without harrows.
