Disc Levelers Mount On V-Ripper Plows
The "disc levelers" consist of pairs of 18-in. dia. blades attached to steel mounting arms that bolt directly to the shank. The blades overlap to pull ridged soil into the furrow, leaving the ground level.
"Works much better than pulling a harrow behind a V -ripper because the discs cut through residue and cover it up instead of dragging it on top of the ground," says Don Campbell. "They're spring-loaded to absorb the shock of going over rocks and other obstacles. Blade depth can be adjusted by changing the position of bolts."
The disc levelers sell for $240 per shank.
