Rugged and Durable
All tillage tools need to be built to handle the stress of the fast paced industry of today. However, deep tillage machines with depth capacities well below the normal operating depths need to be especially tough. In many instances these tools will be operating in profiles that have never been touched by a tillage tool before. The 2511 In-Row Ripper has what it takes.
Built with 6” x 4” structural steel tubing, the robotically welded frame is the foundation for the heavy-duty Cat. II, III or IV three-point hitch. The robust frame is the anchor for the lead coulters that start the tillage process. The rear bar of the frame supports the 2511’s shank assemblies.
The Shank Mount
The 2511 In-Row Ripper shank mounts are built to withstand the rigorous torture that operating in unknown soil profiles can dish out. The auto-reset shank assemblies allow for 3,500 lbs. of point load and 17” of trip height. Rigid-shear bolt models are also available for areas with minimal soil obstructions.
The Shank Leg
The heart and soul of the 2511 is the shank leg, which cuts a narrow slot into the soil profile. The geometry of the shank leg and the shape of the point combine to lift and lower the soil between the slots and develop a network of horizontal cracks and breaks between the shanks. This slot along with the cracks and breaks created in the growth profile allow water and oxygen to infiltrate the soil to enhance plant growth for the next season. The depth of the slot is determined by how deep and thick the compaction layer is. This process is instrumental in keeping the biological environment favorable for residue decomposition.
Versatility in Options
The 2511 In-Row Ripper can be equipped with either auto-reset shank assemblies or rigid-shear bolt shanks. Shank leg options include the 1 1/4” straight leg, the 1 1/4” parabolic leg, or the 3/4” low disturbance shank. Spring cushion lead coulters with different blade options cut the residue and slice the upper layers in the soil profile ahead of the shanks. Easily adjustable gauge wheels allow for quick, positive depth changes for different conditions. The 2511 is available in 3 to 7 shank non-folding models and in 7, 8 and 9 shank folding models.
The 2511 is more than just another ripper. The 2511 In-Row Ripper can be an integral part of almost any type of cropping scenario. Even though these machines were initially designed for deep in-line tillage, some customers use the 2511 for incorporation practices such as sludge and manure application. Others have utilized the parabolic shank leg option for more disturbance on the soil surface. Still others have opted for the low disturbance shank legs for the absolute least amount of surface disturbance. From true no-tillers to conventional tillage aficionados, the 2511 and its concept of compaction management is a yield enhancement investment.
