Three companies roll out new tools for a market that continues to show strength.
EarthMaster launched a new vertical tillage tool at the show for the first time this year. The EarthMaster 3000 is designed to handle increased acres over previous models. The tool can be used for both spring seedbed prep and fall residue management. The SoilRazor disc blades with a saw-tooth profile do not require a sharpener, as they sharpen themselves in the field over time.
At 20 in., the company says efficiency of the blades is improved because less weight is required to get the blades in the ground. A larger, 17 in. rolling basket easily pushes soil in and out on the back end of the tool. Models available are 25 ft., 31 ft. and 34 ft. Disc gang angle is at 18 degrees and working depth is 1.5-3 in. on all models. For more information, visit earthmastertillage.com.
