Terra Tender Rips and Chisels
"It works effecively at chisel plow depth, giving you one machine for both moderate and deep tillage operations," the manufacturer points out.
Designed to go directly into standing stubble or stalks, the Terra Tender is equipped with 30 in. wide blades, spaced 12 in. apart. They physically shatter the compaction zone in all types of soil and moisture conditions.
"Conventional rippers rely on ideal conditions to shatter the compaction zone. The Terra Tender, thanks to its wide shovels and their narrow spacing, can shatter effectively even in high moisture conditions," says the manufacturer. "It physically cuts 71% of the soil profile. Most other machines on the market cut less than 40%."
The shanks are adjustable for both depth and pitch, allowing you to decide for your-self how much trash to leave on the soil surface. At the standard angle, you get maximum suction, soil lift and movement. At the passive angle, the machine pulls easier, leaving more trash and doing less ridging.
An exclusive vertical lift raises tubular steel frame evenly for transport clearance.
Retail cost for 3, 4 and 5 shank models is $13,500, $14,700 and $16,000, respectively. Requires right at 50 hp per shank.
