Yetter 2984 Series Maverick? HR Plus
Introducing the newest member of its strip-till product line: the 2984 Series Maverick™ HR Plus (Maverick HR Plus Opener).
Strip-tilling, even in corn-on-corn, is made easier with this newest Maverick design by Yetter by allowing for better clearance through higher residue. “We’ve designed our Maverick HR Plus to add more clearance around the residue manager and the knife so that it can run through the toughest residue without any plugging problems,” said Andy Thompson, AOR Manager. “Even running through cornstalks will be no problem for this Maverick.”
The Maverick HR Plus features smooth or notched disc sealer blades that work independently from each other but can be locked together if desired. The disc sealers offer infinite adjustments for width, pitch, and distance from the knife, which help make this product a versatile winner that can meet the challenge of changing ground conditions.
The parallel arms are built heavier, while the precision parallel linkage lowers horsepower requirements and operating costs by reducing draft and allowing maximum speed and consistent placement of fertilizer. The bushings in the parallel linkage and in the pivots for the closing disc arms are grease-less and built of Teflon-lined steel.
Other features of the Maverick HR Plus include:
“These features make the Maverick HR Plus a versatile tool for producers so that they can overcome the challenges of higher residue and changing ground conditions,” said Thompson.
Study after study shows that early planting increases yield potential. That’s why progressive growers are turning to fall or spring strip tillage. The Maverick can extend the growing season, giving producers an extra week or more when it’s needed the most. The coulter and residue manager combination, along with the knife’s tillage action, promote mellow soil for early warm up, while the sealing discs build a perfect strip right in the planting zone—2 to 4 inches high.
Like the many other Mavericks in the Yetter product line, strip tilling with the 2984 Maverick HR Plus combines tillage, fertilizer placement, residue management, and sealing. That’s four jobs in one pass, with the precision of parallel linkage. This saves time, fuel, and wear on tillage equipment and tractors. And because producers make fewer trips through the fields, compaction is significantly reduced.
Use this product for both fall and spring operations, and for side-dressing nitrogen. The Maverick HR Plus is available for application of dry fertilizer, liquid fertilizer, anhydrous, or any combination.
