Case IH recently announced to us some key changes to their tillage tools for summer 2018, and beyond, production of their tillage tool line up.
Tru-Tandem 335VT Vertical Tillage Tools
- Back by popular demand is the standard spring adjusted rolling basket on the 335VT single fold vertical tillage units, in both the standard and Barracuda versions. Case IH had changed to a standard hydraulic cylinder controlled system when the vertical tillage units were upgraded from the original 330 version, to the 335VT version. There was enough call from customers and dealers alike to again offer the spring controlled baskets as an option. This new option will be priced approximately $1500 under the hydraulic controlled baskets.
- 42’ and 47’ double fold versions of the Barracuda version of the 335VT vertical tillage unit will now be available for larger operations desiring the more aggressive performance of the Barracuda blades, over the original blades. It is recommended to have at least 10-15 engine horsepower per foot, depended on soil conditions and terrain, for these units.
Tru-Tandem Disk Harrows
- 26” blades will now be available as an option for the Case IH 375 heavy duty all-purpose disk harrow, for those looking to perform increased soil movement over the standard 24” blades that have been available on this model.
