Kinze tackles tillage with high-speed Mach Till disc

by

Kinze Manufacturing is adding tillage equipment to its planters and grain cart lineup.

The company has teamed up with Saskatchewan-based Degelman Industries to market the new Mach Till high-speed disc. Susanne Veatch, Kinze’s president and chief marketing officer says the Mach Till is best described as “hybrid horizontal tillage” rather than vertical tillage.

“The Mach Till can run fast at speeds of eight to 12 miles per hour, but the most important aspect is what’s happening in the ground. Hybrid horizontal tillage combines some of the benefits of conventional discs, vertical tillage and soil finishing products into one tool, integrating speed, good soil finish and uniform residue management in clay, sand, loam, wet and dry soils,” says Veatch.

Kinze unveiled the Mach Till at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. In this video, Veatch explains that the Mach Till cuts and throws the soil at an angle to avoid creating a smear or compaction layer in the dirt, then mixes the soil and residue together. The corrugated rubber roller on the back of the machine sheds soil and breaks up larger clods.

The Mach Till product line includes 20-, 26-, 33-, and 40-foot models that deliver simple set-up and ease of use with maintenance-free parts. The disc combines speed and working depth with flotation to minimize soil compaction, says Veatch. It’s also very versatile and can be used in field operations  ranging from fall primary tillage and residue management to spring secondary tillage and seedbed preparation.
