Kalida, Ohio, (AgPR ), Feb. 16, 2010 – Unverferth Manufacturing Co., Inc. introduces the Rolling Reel Leveler model 75, an ideal soil-finishing partner to pull behind a primary tillage tool for more receptive spring tillage.
The Rolling Reel Leveler’s 16-inch diameter chopping reels feature five spiraled, 3/8” x 3” beveled-edge blades for breaking up clods, knocking dirt off rootballs and leveling residue and ridges for a smoother secondary tillage operation. The blades’ spiral design keeps them in continuous contact with the soil surface for optimum leveling, minimal vibration and improved cleanout in heavier soils or wetter conditions.
The Rolling Reel Leveler is built with a rugged 4-inch by 6-inch main frame and wing construction for added life. The reels feature heavy-duty, 4-bolt flange bearings with a 1¾-inch-diameter shaft for long-term dependability.
The height-adjustable, reversible single-tang, double-clevis hitch and 4-inch by 4-inch telescoping tongue make it easy to attach to the lead tool. There’s also a top-winding, drop-leg jack for easy parking and a secondary position for in-field use.
Standard 9.5 x 15 transport wheels and available dual wheel option make it easy to move the Rolling Reel Leveler from one field to the next. An SMV emblem, reflective markers and safety chain are standard equipment for enhanced transport safety. There’s also an optional lighting package for safer road travel.
Growers can pick a durable and long-lasting powder-coat finish of tractor red or green. Units are available in 15- and 18-foot rigid and 18-, 20-, 22- and 25-foot folding models with horsepower requirements of 1 to 1½ per working foot.
