Promising a “new era in field cultivators”, Landoll recently introduced its new 9600 Series Field Cultivator line that takes seedbed preparation to a new level of size and productivity. Available in eight working widths from 20 to 50 feet, the 9600 Series is designed to help producers meet the short timeline that occurs each spring and fall prior to planting seasons.
“Not only are the new 9600 Series models designed to cover large-acreage fields quickly and smoothly, but they’re engineered for unmatched residue clearance, both under the frame and between shanks,” says Jamie Meier, Landoll Ag Sales Manager. “Our “split-the-middle” shank arrangement splits the center of each sweep path for excellent and consistent mixing of soil, chemicals and residue throughout the soil profile. Despite the ultimate 6” spacing between shanks, each frame features 135” fore-to-aft depth and 30” between ranks for maximum residue clearing capabilities.”
The 9600 Series Field Cultivators are also designed to save time when switching from one field to another, Meier relates. Three- and five-section models hydraulically fold to a maximum transport width of 17’ 4” and a maximum transport height of 13’ 11” for safe travel over the road. Upon arrival at the field, the single-point depth control feature allows quick and simple adjustment of operating depth, which is automatically maintained by the self-leveling hitch. Walking tandem wheels on 2 ¼ to 3” spindles and high flotation tires further contribute to safe transport, a smooth soil finish and improved depth control.
Producers won’t find a stronger or better-built field cultivator, either. High-tech laser tube cutters precisely cut all 9600 Series frame components with unmatched accuracy and notch all 2” X 2” fore-to-aft bridge tubes for a precision fit up to the 3” X 4” shank mounting tubes. Rockshafts rotate on UHMW polymer to eliminate maintenance, while minimizing wear. Gauge wheels, with pivot for stress-free turns, are also standard equipment on all five-section models and optional on three section models.
Additional options include a choice of spring-tension shanks with a 10” trip height and 190 lb. point load, or two-piece S-tine shanks. For handling tough conditions or further improving the seedbed, any of the 9600 Series models can be additionally equipped with a 4-Row Coil Tine Harrow; 5-Row Spike Harrow; 3-Row Tine and Reel, or 3-Row Spike and Reel.
