The hardened and tempered gear drive transmission requires less maintenance than a roller chain drive. Enclosed in an oil bath, gear drive components feature higher wear life, decreasing maintenance costs.

Improve performance with reverse tilling option

Reverse tines rotation

Reverse tilling easily breaks up compacted and rocky soils as well as sod and hard clay. Reverse tines rotation keep the tiller in the ground and prevent the implement from walking on top of the hard soil.

Prevent damage with a cold-formed transmission cover

Transmission cover Transmission cover

The sealed cover ensures the protection of the transmission components, preventing transmission damage due to moisture and mud.

Increase efficiency using hardened and tempered C-shaped tines

C-shaped tines increase efficiency C-shaped tines increase efficiency

The hardened and tempered C-shaped rotor tines require less horsepower to operate. They are designed to engage the soil at different times for more efficiency.

Skid shoes control working depth
