Planter-Mounted Seedbed Leveler
J.B. Mangus, Renick, Mo., mounted a home-built 2-row Danish tine tillage tool on front of his 8-row Deere 7000 pull-type planter. It allows him to level the seedbed ahead of the planter and can be hydraulically lifted to unplug it or to lift it up out of the way.
The add-on tillage tool is supported by a frame built from 5-in. sq. tubing and 6-in. channel iron. The tines are mounted on shafts made from 2 1/4-in. sq. tubing and are raised and lowered by a single hydraulic cylinder. Mangus modified the planter with the help of Richard Ever-hart, Clark, Mo. They also built a hydraulic end transport system for the planter.
