Key features for Sunflower 7600 Series Strip-Till Tools

Coulter Blade

The coulter blades cut deep, slicing through surface and subsurface residue to eliminate interference with the shank. Depth bands on the coulter blades ensure row-unit depth and stabilize the tool. The all-welded coulter assemblies are an integral part of the row unit. Adjustable scrapers clean the blade and the depth band, enabling the unit to work through tough conditions. Two heavy-duty sealed bearings in each hub minimize daily maintenance.

Shank Assembly

The 1/2 x 3 x 24-inch mole knife shank shatters compaction in the root zone, allowing root systems to go deep for soil moisture and nutrients. Shank depth is adjustable in 2-inch increments with an effective working range of 4 to 10 inches deep. The 15-degree mole point creates the perfect environment for a concentration zone of NH3 or liquid fertilizer. Many different knives, points and fertilizer delivery systems are available, making this tool customizable for any program.

Berming Blades

The 16-inch-diameter wavy blades are fully adjustable, with a 4-inch vertical range and up to 10-degree blade-angle adjustment. The berming blades are mounted close to the tillage shank so they can capture the tilled soil and build a berm of optimum shape and height.

Berm Reel

Consisting of 1/4 x 1 1/4 x 12-inch concave bars, this large diameter x 12-inch-wide reel is key to sculpting and conditioning the berm. Particulate size, firmness and berm shape are greatly determined by the berm reel. Spring down pressure can be adjusted from 0 to 125, customizing the berm for all applications.

Row-Unit Mounting

Heavy-duty springs are easily adjusted in increments of 25 pounds of down pressure per revolution. A full 10 inches of vertical travel has been engineered into the wide-set parallel linkage. Parallel linkage allows each row unit to work independently from the tool bar, which maintains the shank and blade settings.
