Tillage and Deep Ripping is Laborsome and Expensive Work! 

 

Annual tillage can help mix nutrients in the soil, combat compacted soil, conserve soil moisture, and help in other ways.  Many of us throughout the corn belt have to do heavy tillage work (deep ripping, chisel plowing, etc.).  

For you, tillage work represents the  the hardest job your tractor will see this year.   Afterall, the ripper is probably the biggest implement you will run.  Which explains why so many reports come in about tractors being grossly under powered for this practice.  Bogging down on headlands, running slow up gentle grades, being forced to raise the plow to keep from getting stuck, and generally not being able to run at target ground speed to get a consistant finish are complaints we commonly hear from farmers doing this work.  

We see the stress and heavy power demands of tillage work as the biggest opportunity for savings.  Below we'll outline the case for tuning the tractor to save fuel during tillage operation.  We'll also save you from having to make significant capital investment in higher horsepower equipment to pull larger plows and finishers.

Spring Tillage and Deep Ripping 

 

For the farmers that have to do tillage work, especially when the ground is hard, an under powered tractor is the last problem anyone wants.  Although annual tillage can help mix nutrients in the soil, combat compacted soil, conserve soil moisture, and help in other ways, it can also cost a lot of time and fuel to complete the job.  

Bogging down, running slow, struggling to climb hills, and other complaints are often made during tillage work.  Which is why it is important to understand how much power you need to complete the task.  Of course there are many factors when figuring out a horse power formula for sizing a ripper or chisel plow.  Variables such as, target ground speed, desired depth, the type of shank and especially shank spacing will make a difference.

Deep Ripping Requires Power:

Many tractors that are used for heavy tillage that work in the fall are also used for heavy work throughout the season.  Anyone who has pulled an a large tillage tool knows how much stress it puts on a tractor.  So the large tractor that has plenty of power to do general work during the rest of the year can feel dramatically be under powered while deep ripping.  Especially if you have decided to run a larger implement this season.  This leaves many farmers looking for a safe solution.  They need a bump in power, not something to make their equipment breakdown.   Custom Tractor Tuning for Deep Ripping, Tillage work, or other strenuous activity is available through the Power Manager allowing farmers to take full advantage of the power available in their tractor or combine.

Tillage work is labor some and has high fuel cost! 

 

Annual tillage can help mix nutrients in the soil, combat compacted soil, conserve soil moisture, and help in other ways.  A common problem with the farming community throughout the corn belt, is heavy tillage work (deep ripping, chisel plowing, etc.) can be a chore for their tractor. 

Tillage work involves using your tractor to pull what is generally the largest implement you own.  Most people report that tillage work is when a tractor will be put under the highest amount of stress.  Which explains why so many reports come in about tractors being grossly under powered for this practice.  Bogging down, running slow, struggling to climb hills, and other complaints are often made during tillage work.  

This is a situation that can be easily remedied with the custom tractor tuning provided by our Power Manager!
