SoilWarrior leaves the majority of the soil naturally mulched and untouched. Most no-till and strip tillage systems rely heavily on knives or shanks. Soil Warrior’s patented rolling cog wheel fractures soil compaction in a narrow zone, providing highly effective, low impact soil treatment in the plant’s growth zone. Also see the ETS HoneyWarrior field ready for manure application and fitting with state-of-the-art Puck Custom Enterprises manure handling systems.

The unique design of the Joker allows you to accomplish light to aggressive tillage and excellent soil finishing. With depth management from 1”-5” the RT Series gives you precise tillage at high speed. The Joker gives you what vertical tillage can’t. Unlike vertical tillage, the Joker is a true residue management system. That means it perfectly sizes residue and incorporates it into the soil for fast decomposition. The Joker also consolidates the soil and promotes faster warming. This helps manage moisture better and gets you planting faster.

NEW CDS-John Blue Liquid Blockage Monitor System (LBMS) – AE50 Award Winner
Now you can know your liquid application flow from the cab of your tractor. Identify which row is being under-applied before your yields are diminished costing valuable time and money. Our patent-pending system shows you both low-flow and no-flow now, which means you can correct it immediately. No more second guessing if any of your delivery lines are plugged.
The system uses magnetic sensing technology mounted behind the VisaGage II Flow Monitors. It senses where magnetic balls are floating in each row during liquid application. Two display options including the popular Apple iPad will allow you to select at which level on the VisaGage the alarm will sound when a ball drops to or below that level.
When a low ball is detected a grower will see a visual display and hear an audible alarm on the control panel in the tractor cab. Each row with a distribution problem will be highlighted by a flashing LED light at the row. No need to remember or search for which row is blocked after you come to a stop. The alarm will reset automatically when the blockage has been correct.

Reichhardt Tactile Row Guidance (PSR TAC) is steering by the aid of a flexible tactile sensor. The durable synthetic sensor guides from the corn plant to control the vehicle. The use of hall effect sensors eliminates the need for vulnerable moving parts that can be damaged and lead to costly down time. The flexible paddles offer the ability to back the harvester up with no damage risk to the sensors or paddles. Operating in down corn is possible since the location of the senor using snout specific brackets optimizes performance. The PSR controller uses OEM integrated hydraulic and electronic components for maximum reliability and precision. See the sensor in person on the Gleaner combine at the NFMS AGCO booth.

While the REM GrainVac design keeps dust safely away from the operator at the intake and the discharge dust is minimal, the dust exhausted in-between depends on the condition of the grain, and can appear quite extreme. The cyclone-style Dust Collector enables the operator to easily and efficiently collect or redirect debris. And just like the VRX machine, this design has endured extreme testing to meet the standards of REM GrainVac users.
