Tine Plow

The Tine plow is a durable, practical implement designed with modern agricultural contractors, growers, and farmers in mind. It’s all about soil conservation and getting back into production fast.

Features and Benefits

A clever (and well-engineered) machine, the tine plow shatters sub-soil pans while working the topsoil.

It maintains and even improves soil structure and breaks the panning, but does not “boil” the soil, or incorporate the layers, as a traditional ripper would. As well as soil conservation, the tine plow helps get paddocks back into production faster.

One client credits it with giving him the ability to go straight into a sprayed-off pasture and plant the maize faster, with a quicker, more even, germination, and, most importantly of all, noticeably improved yields.

While corn, maize, squash and cereal crops see the tine plow put in the most work, it’s also proving more than its worth cultivating and regrassing-down summer/ winter break-feed and sacrifice paddocks.

Curved tines, lift and crack the soil, aerate it and let moisture penetrate. These are followed by a double waved roller, helping avoid soil drying out, and a raking harrow that completes the chopping and mixing of any debris – leaving a smooth, level surface.

Stuart's view

Stuart Briant is a third generation commercial grower, working flat to rolling country in Gisborne. His crops include seed maize, squash, sweet corn, and maize. He says he was convinced it was worth buying when he first saw the implement being demonstrated. Stuart says he especially appreciates the way it helps protect the soil structure, and promotes healthy growth and increased production. “We like the job it’s doing.”
