 McFarlane Reel Disk at Whites Farm Supply in OH McFarlane Reel Disk  

Two new sizes available - 12' and 44'

The “Reel Disk” from
McFarlane Mfg. is our latest development in vertical tillage and can satisfy all
of the demands of today’s farming practices, especially BT corn and corn on corn
cropping. This new tool, featuring ultra-shallow concave disk blades, loosens
the top 2-3 inches of the soil yet leaves the seedbed firm. This ensures
accurate seed depth at planting, resulting in even emergence and better yields.
Smoothing uneven ground and removing small weeds are done quickly at the 7-9 mph operating speeds.

The Reel Disk is available
in widths of 12’ rigid frame, 20’, 25’, 30’ and 44’ folding frames. Horsepower
requires are approximately 8-9 hp/ft.

The ultra-shallow leading
disk blades on 7” centers easily penetrate the soil and slice residue into
manageable pieces. The gang angle can be set aggressive for more soil movement
to bury residue or can be set passive to leave more residue on the surface.

Reversible scrapers are
two-way adjustable to maintain optimum disk blade performance. Following the
disks is a rank of seven-blade, 18-inch diameter spiral reels that crosscut the
residue and mix it into the soil, aiding decomposition. To produce the firm and
level seedbed for optimum germination and yields, our proven 3-bar spike harrow
follows the spiral reel.

The heavy-duty harrow
follows the ground contour closely and is flexible to allow residue to flow
through. The final touch for the perfect seedbed is our 12-inch diameter rolling

The basket features eight,
high-carbon flat bars with adjustable down pressure to make it aggressive for
clod sizing and firming or passive for soil separating and conditioning.

 McFarlane Reel Disk at Whites Farm Supply in OH  McFarlane Sprial Reel Stalk Chopper  Three Tools In One
The Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper is perfectly designed for field preparation. Its five hardened spiral steel blades chop heavy crop stubble at ground level and loosen soil around the root.
Next, the 5-Bar Flexible Spike Tooth Harrow stirs, levels, and firms the
loosened soil. Finally, the trailing spreader board completes the
process, feathering residue and leveling plow ridges.

The Combination Tillage Tool That Tames Tough Field Conditions In A Single Pass

Hard packed, tough stalk stubble, heavy clays, and high residue
can make field preparation a real challenge. Of course, you can tackle tough
soils with a variety of tools, covering the same ground again and again. Or you
can get the Reel Till – the combination tillage tool that tames tough soils in a
single pass.

Four Tools In One
The unique design is actually four tools in one. Together, these four tools do what no
single tool can do and it saves preparation time and lets you plant sooner. The
coulters loosen the first few inches of soil and cut residue. This enables the
spiral reel, with its five hardened – steel blades, to cut and loosen the
residue in the opposite direction and distribute it evenly on the surface. The
flexible 5-bar spike tooth harrow stirs, firms and levels the soil turned by the
coulter and reel – leaving behind a finely ground, yet firm seedbed. This helps
dry topsoil for earlier planting while also sealing in moisture at lower levels.
The feathering board puts the finishing touch on the whole process. It smoothes
the entire seedbed – leaving your fields ready to plant.
In spring, the Reel Till
loosens the top few inches of soil so it warms up and dries out faster. Using
the Reel Till helps get crops into the field sooner. Moreover, soil won’t
compact. It remains loose and level.

New 3 Bar & Rolling Basket Feature
The new 3 bar heavy-duty sections have
all the great features of the 5 bar, but with better residue handling
capability. The increase in residue cover due to more corn on corn acres was the
key to designing this combination. Adjustable down pressure on the rolling
basket can make it aggressive for clod sizing and firming or passive for soil
separating and conditioning.
High-carbon flat blades have been added for long life and durability in tough conditions.Large 12" diameter reel keeps residue and soil moving without plugging. The 8 blades leave the soil profile smooth with larger and smaller particles separated.
