Since the introduction of our popular Reel Disk in 2007 growers have asked us to design a companion primary tillage machine for heavy residue situations. Corn-on-corn acres are increasing to meet increasing demand throughout the world and to feed ethanol production. Higher yields and continuous corn rotations create a heavy residue environment that conventional tillage machines cannot efficiently handle. Until now, a primary tillage tool needed to be followed by multiple passes with finish tools to prepare a seedbed for planting.
Look no further. The Quadra-Till is designed as a one pass fall tillage tool that will size residue, shatter the soil profile across the width of the machine, incorporate the residue evenly and level the future seed bed. In the spring a Reel Disk can make one light pass and quickly prepare a perfect seedbed for the next crop to be planted into. The McFarlane vertical tillage system will ensure optimum seedbed preparation for a better crop and increased profits.
Disk frame constructed of 3″x6″ tubing, chisel frame is 4″x6″ and the main frame utilizes 6″x8″ tubing.
Disk Spring System
Coil spring system protects disk frame from obstructions such as rocks and stumps. Also prevents premature wear when operating in extremely hard ground conditions or frost. Initial spring tension and two-position adjustment ensures consistent operating depth, yet allows the disk gangs to trip 4″ upwards.
