The disc harrow has become a fixture on nearly every farm since it’s introduction many years ago. When it’s doing its job, a disc should size residue to manageable pieces, blend residue into soil to speed up decomposition and deter erosion, break up clods, and level the field. To do it’s job right, a disc needs enough weight to cut tough residue. It also needs gang placement in a way that leaves a uniform surface through a design that allows material to flow through the tool rather than build up. A good disc harrow is easy to keep balanced, easy to use and easy to maintain. The new Sunflower 1436 breaks through heavy residue with more weight, 645 pounds per foot for the Sunflower 1436-27. The 1436 provides a clean cut across the width of the tool, producing a uniformly worked soil profile with no added center bladed needed. All 1436s come standard with a level lift frame, walking tandems and gauge wheels to keep the disc balanced. Aligned walking tandems give the disc more control frame contours. For ease of use, the Patented Split wing design allows a 13’ 7” transport height – the industry’s lowest. The 1436’s Frame is balanced to accommodate heavier finishing attachments. No need to adjust the fore/aft level moving from field to transport and back to field.
