Multi-Purpose Strip Till Machine
The Strip Cat has 5 distinct features that set it apart from other machines on the market. At the front of the row unit, a large 20-in. notched coulter is paired with a gauge wheel to slice residue and create a V-shaped slot for liquid or dry fertilizer. Behind the coulter are two trash wheels that remove trash from the center of the row, creating a clean seedbed. The third tool on the row unit is a mole knife with hydraulic down pressure and automatic reset if the knife encounters a rock or other obstruction in the row. Notched coulters on both sides of the mole knife are spring-mounted with adjustable depth control to create a soil berm from 1 to 3 in. high. At the rear of the row unit, two fingered pack wheels with adjustable down force gently press the soil berm and create an ideal seedbed for planting.
The Strip Cat is available in 4, 6, 8, 12 and 16-row sizes with standard 30-in. row spacing. Optional 22-in. row spacing is also available. Lubrication maintenance is minimal with the Strip Cat because all flexible joints have dry lube bushings.
