Cultivating success with every crop

Posted on 05/05/2014 in Harvest, Primary tillage, Service.

You may not give much thought to the disk harrow on your cultivator, but it plays a big part in effective residue management. Proper disk harrow maintenance will ensure successful seedbed preparation for years to come.

After hours of use, your disk harrow can start to wear and performance will falter. With routine inspection and preventative maintenance, however, you can avoid the costly downtime and repairs caused by worn or damaged disks. The Case IH disk harrow kits contain everything you need to replace worn components and hardware.

When inspecting your disk harrows, check all bolts to be sure they are as tight as possible. Replace any worn, damaged or illegible safety labels with new labels from your Case IH dealer. When it comes time to replace a part on your disk harrow, choose genuine Case IH parts. Only they have been specially designed by Case IH engineers with your equipment in mind, providing you with the best results.

Disk Harrow

Steps for selecting the right blade:

Step 1: Identify the size of the disk blade you need.

Step 2: Determine the size of the arbor bolt. This will determine the size and shape of the center hole.

Step 3: Decide if you want a solid or a notched blade. If you need some extra tilling power, try the Super Sharp™ edge notched blades.

Step 4: The charts in the Tillage Aftermarket catalog will help you identify the proper blades based upon the dimensional preferences identified in steps one through three. If you are looking for full concave disk blades, refer to the “Full Concavity Disk Blades” chart on page 17 of the Tillage Aftermarket catalog .
