An absolutely beautiful week of sunshine got tractors started and dirt turning across the midwest. Several customers were doing tillage, spreading fertilizer and manure, and several guys across the states have hundreds of acres tucked into the soil. We caught rain last night just as we were getting close to running. The 10 day forecast has cold, wet weather on a few occasions. For us, we are slowly turning the page from planter preparation to sidedress season. J&M applicators, Y Drop toolbars, Yetter Magnum bars, and other projects are next on the list through the shop. As planting season approaches, keep in mind our inventory of fittings, valves, closing wheels, pumps, and more. We stock the parts to keep you up and running.
Have a great weekend and feel free to call 419-953-8500.
Strip Fresheners, A Pass That Isn't Going Away
Strip tillage in general has gained a lot of popularity in the past few years especially in the strip freshener area. This is where you take a lower HP unit at higher speeds to create a strip that is fairly shallow 1–4" deep mainly to crate a fast but nice seedbed. Of course fertilizer is often incorporated into this system.
Salford's Superior Independent Design
Salford has been know to have a tool that is completely different. Unlike all of the others, there are no gangs, and this is a huge benefit in many ways. This week we changed blades on a 24' 5" spacing Salford in 2 hours! No removing gangs or hoping nuts come loose, and of course no torch, just zip off 4 bolts and slide the old blade off. With each blade equipped with its own coil spring, the constant jack hammering effect of the tool vertically breaks compaction up to 20" below the blade depth. Optimizing root growth while maintaining soil structure is the secret behind the Salfords. Yet another reason to have a Salford in your tool line up.
