The disc harrow has become a fixture on nearly every farm since its 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 its job right, a disc needs enough weight to cut tough residue. It also needs gang placement to leave a uniform surface, allowing material to flow through the tool rather than building up. A good disc harrow is easy to keep balanced, easy to use and easy to maintain. A Sunflower disc provides benefits that don’t come standard on other brands of tillage. Sunflower disc harrows are designed for ease of use, long service life and consistently great results.
At 625-660 pounds per foot, the 1436 models provide a clean cut across the width of the tool, producing a uniformly worked soil profile with no added center blade needed. To keep the disc balanced, a level lift frame, walking tandems and gauge wheels are standard equipment. Aligned walking tandems give the disc more control. For ease of use, the patented split-wing design allows a 13’ 6” transport height, the industry’s lowest. The 1436’s frame is balanced to accommodate heavier finishing attachments. There’s no need to adjust the fore/aft level moving from field to transport and back to field.
