Features

CONSTANT-LEVEL OR FLOATING HITCH OPTIONS

The standard, constant-level hitch is ideal for farms with relatively flat fields. The single-pole design on floating hitch models allows for tight turns without interference with the tractor’s 3-point hitch. For more challenging field conditions, choose the floating hitch option. It adds maintenance-free caster wheels to the front of the implement and a horizontal pivot at the base of the tongue, enhancing the unit’s flexibility for consistent cultivation, regardless of terrain.

IMPROVED FOLDING SYSTEM

Folding system has been upgraded with heavier hinges on both inside and outside wings.

MAX-MIX™

With the Max-Mix™ pattern, no shank is closer than 28" on the same bar. The underframe clearance is 24", and the shanks are spaced 7" apart. The Max-Mix™ pattern is a true four-bar design, and shanks exactly split the previous row of shanks. This evenly spreads residue and uniformly incorporates fertilizer and chemicals.

CHOOSE YOUR SHANK & SWEEPS

Heavy-duty K-flex shank (right) has 185 lbs. of point trip force. Spring-loaded Magnum shank (left) has 205 lbs. of point trip force. Both shank styles are available in minimum draft or flat lower shanks. Sweep choices are either 10" or 11" with or without hard-surfacing.

NARROW TRANSPORT WIDTH

The 8000 Series Field Cultivator folds to a narrow 14' transport width on the smallest units and an amazing 16'10" width on the 60' model. All 5-section models feature dual-fold cylinders for additional frame strength.
