In today’s complicated and ever changing world of agriculture there are many types of tillage on one farm much less all over the world. Types of tillage will differ from spring preparation work to fall field work, from a dry year to a wet year, and from vertical tillage to conservation tillage to primary tillage or residue management. All these types of tillage require different machines, until now.
Introducing the new Schulte VTX-300 and VTX-420 SOILSTAR, an all-in-one tillage machine for your farm.
This can do it all, from a light to an extreme tillage pass with aggressive concave discs; to a vertical tillage pass or seedbed preparation with straight discs, and everything in between. This is all accomplished with the ability to adjust the disc angle on the go from 0° to 22° degrees, along with the weight of 1,150 lbs/ft to deal with any type of crop residue or ground condition.
The disc unit is the heart of the machine. It has an adjustable disc angle from 0° to 22°. The disc angle is adjusted hydraulically on the go from the tractor cab. This adjustable disc angle allows for aggressive primary tillage with concave discs all the way to true vertical tillage with straight discs. It can operate in the heaviest and toughest residue conditions or it can do a light seedbed preparation pass.
This is the ideal machine for both vertical tillage and residue management. To accomplish this, 24” low concavity wavy discs are used for more aggressive tillage. The 22” straight 13 wave discs are used for vertical tillage. To accomplish ideal field finish both above and below the soil surface, the disc spacing is adjusted when working in vertical tillage or residue management mode. Adjustment is made simple by sliding the rear disc gang between stops.
