Rotary Till Plant Rig Makes Just One Pass
Jim Schierer, Metamora, Ill., combines a 6-row IH Cyclo air planter with an Evers-man pto-powered rotary tiller to make an easy-to-operate, effective one-pass planting system.
The tiller-planter, which is 15 ft. wide, is pulled by a Case/IH 180 hp. tractor. The tiller works the ground 2 to 3 in. deep. The tractor carries saddle tanks with 200 gal. of herbicide that's incorporated as the ground is tilled for planting. Chemicals are applied with a boom mounted on the front of the tractor.
The hydraulic pump that powers the Cyclo mounts on top of the Eversman tiller and is belt-driven off the pto shaft as it drives the tiller.
