Great Plains’ new Short Disk primary tillage tool, available in spring 2015, features individual disc mounts, which allow the blades to be angled while the frame remains straight for better ground-engaging and contour-following capabilities. The Short Disk runs shallow to manage residue, or can run up to 7-inches deep as a primary tillage implement in preparation for the next crop. It incorporates hydraulic weight transfer and maintenance-free tapered disc bearings with 6-lip cassette seals.
The Short Disk is available in three models, the SD2600, SD3000 and the SD3300, which have respective working widths of 26 feet, 5 inches; 29 feet, 6 inches; and 33 feet, 2 inches. The models require between 300-500 horsepower.
