Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment Gets Even Stronger
Coulter kits from Ron's Manufacturing convert any chisel plow to a year-round tool to prepare your fields. The company has added two more bearings to their kits. This makes the kits even more heavy-duty for a wide variety of uses in the spring or fall.
  In the fall, it can be used to lightly till the soil and incorporate and size residue, setting the stage for the spring planting season. It is also a practical way to dry out wet soils. The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment works well in no-till conservation tillage, as well as conventional tillage operations, extending the growing season and creating better planting conditions. Vertical tillage prepares the soil to warm more quickly in early spring, energizing the seedbed for maximum growth and yield potential. In addition, the Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment allows for shallow seedbed preparation, which decreases the risk of excess soil density below the root zone.
  The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment is also an excellent addition to spring residue management. It increases planting efficiency, offers maximum yield potential, and performs well in all residue conditions. When spring planting is delayed by wet cool fields, the Vertical Tillage Attachment is the perfect tool to use to dry and warm them. Fluffing and sizing the residue along with fracturing the soil speeds the drying process. The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment can be used as a surface crust breaker following heavy rains. Thousands of these kits made by Ron's Manufacturing are being used by farmers and excel in high residue crops, such as wheat, corn and soybeans. The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment delivers optimal performance, cutting heavy residue to enhance planter operation. In addition, it offers improved insect and disease control through residue sizing and disturbance.
  Overall, the Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment is a smart investment in that it has multiple uses, which will ultimately produce savings in terms of time and money. It also has a low operating cost per acre and can be used in a wider range of conditions than most tillage tools. It operates at a relatively high speed of 6 to 10 mph, which saves time. Additionally, the Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment allows for quick mixing of manure and soil to prevent loss of nutrients and control odor. It can also be
used for very shallow incorporation of fertilizer and select herbicides.
  The Vertical Tillage Coulter Kit Attachment can be equipped with a wide selection of coulter blades. Spaced on 6-in. centers, the coulter blades can be matched to achieve the desired amout of tillage and residue sizing. Patent Pending.
