Bigham Brothers Inc. of Lubbock, Tex., announces the manufacture and sale of the largest piece of 3 pt. farm equipment in the company's history.

Commodity crop producers Jerry and Jeff Shaddon of Hale Center, Tex. purchased the 24-row (30 in. centers) strip-till machine mounted on a 60-ft. Bigham Brothers stack fold tool bar.

This machine allows producers to perform tillage limited to the soil area needed for a seedbed, saving time, labor, and fuel while practicing soil conservation. The reach of the machine lets operators cover more land in less time, helping farmers complete work during narrow seasonal windows in large operations dictated by modern economic factors.

The stack fold tool bar aids safe transport of the machine by reducing width and height profiles while moving the implement. Hydraulic lift-assist wheels help the tractor lift the implement and stabilize it during transport.

This tool and others are available through the nation-wide network of authorized Bigham Brothers dealers.
