RAPID TILL HD SYSTEM
The Rapid Till HD is our heavy-duty strip till unit for farming in tough, high-residue conditions. Its design allows trash to flow through the row unit components with minimal disturbance and minimal plugging.
It’s easy to adjust the machine to get the job done exactly the way you want. Adjust the down-pressure by moving one rod; the front coulter depth by moving one bolt; and the wavy coulters and rear packer by moving a single pin.
There are four key components to the row unit: A flat coulter, a parabolic shank, wavy coulters, and a dual-wheel packer.
The row unit starts with a flat coulter, which cuts the residue ahead of the 3/4″ thick parabolic shank. The shank can be adjusted to till from 6-16” deep. Both this shank and the point are designed to prevent soil from slabbing up in big chunks.
Behind the shanks, two wavy coulters lift and pinch the soil together. This closes the void left by the shank and removes any air pockets in the seed bed.
The final component of the row unit is the dual-wheel packer, which acts as a “depth gauge wheel” for the row unit. This packer firms the soil, reducing moisture evaporation and breaking up any dirt clods that can impede seed placement and seed-to-soil contact.
In place of the standard shear bolt, a hydraulic reset is available. This automatically resets the shank after it clears an obstruction without the operator.
Standard equipment options include:
- 24″ flat coulter, 3/4″ parabolic shank with 6” point
- Two 20″ wavy coulters, 16″ dual-wheel light packer
