Features and Benefits
A clever (and well-engineered) machine, the Tineplow shatters sub-soil pans while working the top soil. 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 Tineplow 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 Tineplow put in the most work, it’s also proving more than it’s 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.
