Product Description

Maximum Vertical Tillage

The Great Plains Max-Chisel is an aggressive primary tillage tool that works at a shallower depth and leaves fields smoother and more uniform than most traditional disk rippers. Built on the same rugged platform as the Great Plains Turbo-Chisel®, the Max-Chisel utilizes two opposing rows of exclusive concave turbo-wave blades. With a patented “samurai edge,” the blades aggressively remove root balls while mixing and incorporating residue in the top 10 to 13 cm of soil, chopping it to accelerate the decaying process.

Mounted to individual C-shanks, 61 cm blades on 38 cm spacing allow plenty of trash clearance. All feature maintenance-free tapered bearings in a cast hub and a six-lip interlocking seal to keep grease in and dirt out.

Max-Chisel works the soil more aggressively than a traditional chisel, but leaves the surface level enough for a single-pass tool, such as Great Plains Disc-O-Vator® or Turbo-Max®, to finish the field ahead of the planter in the spring. Angled chopper wheels combine with 38 cm shank spacing to pull dirt back into the shank voids, leveling the soil while maintaining the vertically-tilled profile left by the shanks.

Max-Chisel is available in two rigid models, ranging from 3.5 to 4.3 m, and two folding versions of 5 and 5.8 m. All feature hydraulically-adjustable disc gang depth control and heavy-duty toggle-trip reset shanks that can till up to 30 cm deep. With 1,111 kg of horizontal trip force, these shanks will not pull out of hard ground like a traditional chisel. Medium-duty chisel shanks are also available.

Fall Tillage: How to Deal with Ruts

Before and After: Turbo-Max® Vertical Tillage Implement
November 11, 2014

Stuck in a rut? Not for long!

With all the additional moisture during fall harvest, the conditions have led to moderately to severely rutted fields around the country. To ensure a nurturing, uniform seedbed and avoid yield-loss, these ruts must be removed prior to spring planting. Ruts cause problems for all types of producers, but they can become an especially unique problem in low disturbance no-till fields. No matter your tillage preference, Great Plains has a solution to combat a variety of field conditions.
