Rolling Leveler Primary Tillage Partner Premieres
Unverferth Manufacturing Co., Inc. introduces the Rolling Leveler model 75, an ideal soil-finishing partner to pull behind a primary tillage tool for a more receptive spring tillage. It is available with producer's choice of bladed reel or cleated rolling drum for matching soil conditions.
The 16-inch diameter bladed reel features five spiraled, 3/8ï¿½ x 3ï¿½ beveled-edge blades for breaking up clods, knocking dirt off rootballs and leveling residue and ridges for a smoother secondary tillage operation. The bladesï¿½ spiral design keeps them in continuous contact with the soil surface for optimum leveling, minimal vibration and improved cleanout in heavier soils or wetter conditions.
The 13"-diameter rolling drum featuers 3" tall spiraled drive lugs that propel the roller for maximum leveling and firming action.
The Rolling Reel Leveler is built with a rugged 4-inch by 6-inch main frame and wing construction for added life. The reels feature heavy-duty, 4-bolt flange bearings with a 1¾-inch-diameter shaft for long-term dependability.
The height-adjustable, reversible single-tang, double-clevis hitch and 4-inch by 4-inch telescoping tongue make it easy to attach to the lead tool. There’s also a top-winding, drop-leg jack for easy parking and a secondary position for in-field use. Standard 9.5 x 15 transport wheels and available dual wheel option make it easy to move the Rolling Leveler from one field to the next. An SMV emblem, reflective markers and safety chain are standard equipment for enhanced transport safety. For added on-the-road safety, an optional lighting package is available.
Growers can pick a durable and long-lasting powder-coat finish of tractor red or green. Units are available in 15- and 18-foot rigid and 18-, 20-, 22- and 25-foot folding models with horsepower requirements of 1 to 1½ per working foot.
