Uniform fracturing of compaction with residue incorporation.
Deep tillage in soils with proper moisture content will displace a V-shaped section of soil upward, forward and sideways. The 4511 utilizes shanks on 15-inch centers and disc gangs both front and rear, giving it greater ability to fracture and lift soil in adverse conditions. Net results are uniform soil fracturing to a depth of up to 12 inches and a soil profile of mixed residue. Operators should always probe their fields prior to deep tillage to determine the depth of the compaction zone (studies have found soil should be fractured 1 1/2 to 2 inches below the compaction zone for best results).
