VRT Series

Deep Tillage Subsoiler

For use with tractors in the 180 – 282hp range

FEATURES

  • The main “V” frame is constructed of tough high strength tubing with an all welded box type fishplate with a 1/2” (13mm) x 6” (152mm) plate on the underside that is swept back 35°.
  • Hinged with a hydraulic self-leveling device to allow uniform subsoiling in shallow and deep applications.
  • Abrasive resistant alloy steel shanks which are flame cut to a parabolic curve will shatter the toughest hardpan to a depth of 24” (610mm).
  • Shanks set at 30” (762mm) spacing and are shear bolt protection.
  • 2” (51mm) high grade steel pivot bolt aligns shank.
  • 2” (51mm) x 3/4” (19mm) tough wear strips are easily replaced.
  • Designed for maximum clearance and weight transfer to drawbar of tractor. Equipped with a heavy duty vertical lift transport undercarriage.
  • The hitch, main frame, and shank holding plates are designed to alleviate lateral and torsional stress and are all low hydrogen welded.

Standard Equipment

  • Center “V” frame is all welded box type construction made of 6” (152mm) x 8” (203mm) x 3/8” (10mm) rectangular tubing with 1/2” (13mm) x 6” (152mm) fishplates.
  • Parabolic curved shanks are 1-1/2” (38mm) x 11” (279mm) x 42” (1067mm) grade T1 alloy steel.
  • Shear bolts are 1” (25mm) x 5” (127mm) grade 5.
  • Four 12.5L x 16 – 12 ply tires. Two transport and two gauge wheels all on eight bolt hub assemblies.
  • Hydraulic control group includes one 5” (127mm) x 12” (304mm) drawbar cylinder, one 5” (127mm) x 16” (406mm) transport cylinder, hoses, and quick couplers to reach the rear of the tractor.
  • Depth gauge rod provides leveling (frame) adjustment.
  • Gauge wheels determine the desired working depth; adjustments made with the gauge wheel adjusting rods.
  • Cylinder lock assemblies for each cylinder rod keeps cylinder from retracting if pressure is lost while transporting.
  • Bolt on hard surfaced fabricated points for shanks.
