Sunflower 4412 Aimed at Residue Management

New disc rips deep, leaves smooth surface.

Published on: Jan 22, 2008

The new Sunflower 4412 Disc Ripper Disc combines deep tillage with proven disc harrow design to reach deep and leave the surface a step closer to seedbed smooth.

Staggered overlapping front disc gangs slice through trash and bury it. Parabolic shanks rip deep and staggered rear gangs smooth and level the deep-tilled ground.

Sunflower's new 4412 Disc Ripper Disc provides for independent gang adjustment from the cab and rips 14- to 18-inches deep, with a "conservation tillage" ground surface in its wake.

Shanks are set on 30-inch spacings on the 6X4-inch, 3/8-inch tool bar and are designed to handle hard ground with a 3,500 lb. trip setting. Operators can select from 14- or 18-inch maximum depths.

A parallel linkage allows the operator to change gang depths up to 8 inches without changing blade position or angle, and front and rear gangs can be adjusted from the cab.
