Discover why there's more to the Max.
One of the industry-leaders in vertical tillage is the Great Plains Turbo-Max, offering both agronomic benefits of both spring vertical tillage and fall residue management. In the fall, the Turbo-Max can be run at an angle to bury more residue. This aids in the decaying process and pins the residue to the ground. In the spring, the Turbo-Max can be run straight to create the ideal seedbed to allow for precision planting.
The Turbo-Max is the ideal vertical tillage tool for min-tillers who want to size and anchor residue without aggressively working the ground in the fall. It vertically cuts residue and fractures the soil to create a smooth seedbed for uniform seed emergence. The Turbo-Max also does not create compaction layers, which allows roots to have the freedom to reach nutrients and moisture.
With new sizes and features, the Turbo-Max also offers producers more flexibility and control than ever before. With new working widths ranging from 8.5' to 48', operations of all sizes have access to these vertical tillage tools. Features like the hydraulically-adjustable tongue allow for easy front-to-back leveling and the new hydraulically-adjustable finishing reel helps prepare the optimal seedbed.
The Turbo-Max helps producers accomplish more with attachments like the Turbo-SeederTM, allowing producers to till and plant cover crops all in one pass. The hydraulically-adjustable gang angles cover residue in the fall at 3 to 6 degrees and prepare the ideal seedbed at 0 degrees. Turbo-Max blades are spaced 7½" apart on two rows of coulter gangs. Rear gangs offset the front gangs, splitting the blade spacing to 3¾" for superior residue sizing in one pass. Turbo-Max provides truly vertical cutting without the shearing caused by concave blades.
