Overview

The best time for dealing with compaction is in the fall during your post harvest tillage. Breaking up hardpan and roughing up the surface will improve water and nutrient infiltration over the winter. Primary tillage tools, such as a disc ripper, not only shatter deep compaction but can also cut and mix heavy residue and leave the field level behind the tool.

Features:

WALKING TANDEMS
sunflower-tillage-walking-tandemThe walking beam pivot assemblies consist of two tapered roller bearings with triple-lipped seals. For ease of service and strength, the wheel spindles slip into the spindle tube, which is welded into the walking beam.


PATENTED C-FLEX MOUNTS
sunflower-tillage-c-flex-mountsOur patented C-Flex bearing standards absorb disc shock created by rocks, field obstructions and normal discing. Additional C-Flex benefits include the ability to clear residue better than conventional rigid standards; extended bearing, spool and disc blade life and easy maintenance.


HEAVY-DUTY FRAME
sunflower-tillage-heavy-duty-frameAll Sunflower primary tillage tools feature an all-welded, box-beam frame with specially formed gussets in all high-stress areas for maximum reliability and a long service life. Most models also feature a maintenance-free lift system, which utilizes space-age UHMW plastic sleeves on lift pivots, to eliminate the need for greasing, while decreasing parts wear and maintenance.

Rigid-Frame Coulter Chisels

sunflower-rigid-frame-coulter-chiselWorking Widths From 8’ 9” To 18’ 9”
The Sunflower 4213 Coulter Chisel can completely fracture hardpans and eliminate soil compaction to a depth of 12 inches that a wider spaced shank arrangement would miss. With coulters spaced every 7.5 inches, shanks on 15-inch centers and sizes beginning at seven shanks, the 4213 fits well in smaller farming operations.

4233 Flexible-Frame Coulter Chisels

sunflower-flexible-frame-coulter-chiselsWorking Widths From 21’ 3” To 28’ 9”
The Sunflower 4200 Series primary tillage tools remove soil compaction while opening up the surface for improved water intake and reduced erosion. The Sunflower 4233 Coulter Chisel completely fractures hardpans and eliminates soil compaction to a depth of 12 inches; with the chisels on 15-inch centers, it can fracture soil structures that wider shank spacings miss. With the coulters on 7.5 inches, the crop residues left on the soil surface are chopped to pass easily through the alternately 15-inch spaced chisels. The 4233 covers a lot of acres in the short window of opportunity that large-acreage operations with higher horsepower tractors require.

sunflower-4412-disc-ripper-discWorking Widths From 12’ 5” And 17’ 6”
Designed for deep tillage to a depth of 18 inches, the Sunflower 4412 Disc Ripper Disc effectively sizes and incorporates crop residue, while shattering hardpan, for better water and nutrient intake. Equipped with the HD coil tine harrow option leaves the soil nearer to seedbed conditions.

The 4412 is built around the proven performance of the staggered front- and rear-gang design, which leaves the field surface smooth and ridge-free. A set of HD auto-reset shanks with 3,500 lb. point load ensure that the unit maintains the desired working depth. The unique independently mounted front-disc gang allows for independent adjustment from the cab of the tractor.

The Sunflower 4412 is an exceptional combo primary tillage tool requiring less horsepower per shank than many competitors.

sunflower-4511-4530-disc-chisel-discsWorking Widths From 11’ 3” To 23’ 9”
The Sunflower 4511 and 4530 Disc Chisel Discs are primary tillage tools built around the performance proven staggered, overlapping front and staggered rear disc gang design. This design, long used in the tandem disc harrows, is field-proven to uniformly cut the working width of the tool and leave the field surface smooth and ridge free. These medium depth tillage tools have working depths up to 12″. Rigid Shear Bolt or Auto-Reset Shanks spaced at 15″. The individually mounted front blades are triple compound angled. This patented design is the source of this tool’s aggressive performance in sizing and burying the toughest residue. The chisel shanks are spaced 15″ apart and will accommodate a variety of points. The front and rear gangs are hydraulically controlled from the tractor cab and operate independently on parallel linkage. Overall, this is the ultimate in deep tillage tool design.
