Walk Away From Trouble

Roll Forward Frame

A unique benefit of the Pro-Till® cultivator is the roll forward frame design which gives operators the ability to completely rotate the frame and rear disc sections off the ground, making it easy to maneuver out of trouble in wet conditions. This design, together with the impressive weight distributions of the four oversized high flotation tires, lets operator back up, drive forward, unplug, or simply drive away from any difficulty.

Weight is Inherent in the Overbuilt Frame

Other machines require extra weight stacks, but the 32,000 lb. Pro-Till® cultivator carries this weight in the frame where it should be. As the heavy weight in the industry, the Pro-Till® has the downward force to handle the most extreme soil and trash conditions.

Independent Discs

The Pro-Till® disc system replaces the traditional gang with independent disc arms that slice and mix soil at speeds never before achieved. This high speed, aggressive tillage, combined with more room between the discs, maximizes trash flow and eliminates plugging.

Maximum Trash Flow

Maximum Trash Flow

Pro-Till® discs have a shallow face to eliminate compaction layers, and the high tensile strength steel arms provide maximum flow through with three times the spring back of normal mild steel.

Rubber Suspension

Pro-Till® disc arms are preloaded using four natural rubber spring elements that allow the disc to skate over severe stones, yet perfectly follow the contours of the land. When a stone is encountered, the rubber elements compress automatically dampening the impact and providing protection while immediately springing the disc back into operation.

Concave Disc Options

Plain Concave Disc

Smooth

The concave disc does an excellent job of tiling and inverting the soil. The action of the disc depends on the speed.

Notched Concave Disc

Notched

Notched concave discs provide a very aggressive cutting edge that is well suited for soil penetration. These discs are a good choice for residue management.

Double V Concave Disc

Double V

The Double “V” shape disc design acts like a smooth disc offering more surface area cutting – which moves more material along with an addition benefit of the “V” notch offering both high cutting power and “powers itself” as it continues to turn in wet conditions.

Increased Water Absorption

These rollers are an excellent all-around roller suitable for any types of soil conditions and offer very good consolidation. The micro-ridge shape of the Pro-Till® rollers allow water to be stored in the corrugated valleys, driven to the lower soil layers and stored in a uniform way. Proper soil consolidation is critical to allow water stored in deep soil layers to flow.

Increased Water Absorption
Pro-Till
Faster Germination

Faster Germination

Corrugated rollers help seeds to germinate and grow in the shortest possible time by creating a firm field finish. The compact soil improves the soil to seed/root contact which enables an efficient transfer of nutrients. It also preserves moisture, which is especially important during dry years.

Effective Erosion Control
Effective Erosion Control

Effective Erosion Control

The Pro-Till® rollers are key to protecting soil against heavy rainfalls and high winds. The rollers consolidate the soil, providing valleys for water storage and creating ridges to reduce wind and water erosion.

Enriched Soil Structure

Enriched Soil Structure

After residue has been cut and mixed, our exclusive corrugated rollers finish the field to perfection. The hollow corrugated rubber design sheds soil, breaks up the larger clods and consolidates the soil to bring fine earth in contact with residue to optimize decomposition.

Enriched Soil Structure
Improved Gas Exchange

Improved Gas Exchange

Healthy soil must be allowed to breathe. Pro-Till’s furrow rollers create a pattern of ridges that optimize gas exchange by forming highly a compacted zone besides a less compacted zone. These zones allow a rapid exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen between the soil pores.

Simple. Strong. Clean.

The minimalist approach to these scrapers leave long arms which create great trash flow. The scrapers are easy to adjust, easy to clean and are removed with the pull of a pin. The Hardox wear plates are the same as those used in mining, construction, quarries and excavation and are 8 x more abrasion resistant to that of mild steel.

Pro-Till

Optional Max Life Scraper

Max Life scrapers will significantly increase the life and performance of your roller scrapers. The tungsten carbide tipped scrapers maintain their original length and shape, resulting in a clean roller and a more consistent field finish.

10 Times Longer Wear

10 Times Longer Wear

Max Life scrapers have passed initial testing with excellent results. With 10 times longer wear than standard scrapers, Max Life scrapers take advantage of new hard surfacing technology. Tungsten carbide is mixed directly into the molten weld bead.

Tungsten Carbide.

Long Life, Maximum Value

Tungsten carbide is an extremely hard composite material that easily withstands the abrasive effect of running in soil.

During the break-in period the leading edge of steel is worn off to match the attack angle of the blade. The tungsten carbide is then the primary point of contact.
