McFarlane Mfg. Co. introduced the new Incite 5000 Series Tillage tools during the 2015 National Farm Machinery Show. The company calls the unit the "first ever Universal Tillage machine" and they even trademarked the phrase Universal Tillage. The design offers the ability to perform in a wide range of conditions, spring or fall, by offering features and adjustability options.
The new tools has the flexibility to adjust to different soil types and crops including corn, soybeans and wheat. The Incizor blades, manufactured by Ingersoll - a leader in blades for vertical tillage equipment, are exclusive to McFarlane with their 28-wave concave design using Ingersoll's proprietary Boron Alloy Steel. These blades are versatile enough for both high-speed operation at shallow depths or up to 6-inches deep for more traditional disk work.
The line is available in working widths from 14-feet to 40-feet and loaded with a range of design features including the Universal Tillage Selector that allows an operator to make on-the-go hydraulic adjustment of the disk gang angles to 3, 6 or 9 degrees. The 7-blade, 18-inch diameter open center Dura-Reel provides hydraulic height adjustment from a disk blade depth to 8-inches above. The company's proven 3-Bar Flexible Tooth Harrow combined with the high carbon 8-flat bar rolling basket, each with setting flexibility, will accommodate a broad range of soil and residue conditions to provide a finished seedbed.
