Landoll says its new 6230 tandem disk is heavier than most on the market to cut through heavy Bt stalk, putting down approximately 210 lbs./blade. Disc blade spacing is 83/4 in. Jamie Meier, Landoll’s ag division sales manager, says this blade spacing does a nice job of sizing and leveling. “Some competitors use wider disk spacing for increased weight per blade but sacrifice leveling capabilities and allow more rootball crowns to go through untouched,” he says.
Suggested list price: $30,000 to $45,000 for 21- to 36-ft. disk size. Contact Landoll Corp., Dept. FIN, 1900 N. St., Marysville, KS 66508, 800/428-5655, www.landoll.com.
