Add-On Tillage Tool For Row Crop Planters
"There's been tremendous farmer interest in this new add-on tillage tool," says Glen Floyd of Remlinger Manufacturing Co., Inc., manufacturer of the new "Trip Saver", which consists of a double row of S-tines that mount ahead of trailing, non-folding planters.
The add-on unit is designed to eliminate problems caused by crusted field conditions and tire compaction while helping improve chemical incorporation. Under many conditions, it'll save a trip across the field before planting, according to Floyd.
Depth of the S-tines is hydraulically controlled, allowing them to be raised to clear trash, or when crossing grass waterways and other areas where you may not want them in the ground. The kit installs easily on most planters and includes an extension hitch to facilitate a sharp turn planter with the all bolt-on unit.
Built to fit 4, 6 and 8-row planters, the 6-row model sells for $1,555, including hydraulic cylinders.
