Cultivate over 10 MPH
The Pro-Till shreds residue at speeds over 10 mph while ensuring uniform distribution of residue, critical for no-till rotations. Problems such as poor residue distribution, uneven emergence, delayed emergence, hair pinning, erosion and seeder/planter plugging are eliminated with the Pro-Till.
Fields can be hampered by tough heavy residue from crops like flax, peas, sunflowers, barley, wheat, soybeans, and BT corn. This is no longer a problem. Pro-Till is ideally pulled fast- 10 to 14 mph. Our patent pending combination of independent disc arms, with small diameter shallow discs, motion dampening rubber suspension, sturdy frame and cutting edge consolidating rollers allow this tillage tool to slice through residue as never seen before. Pro-Till will cut, weed, throw and mix soils at incredible speeds and usually in one pass. This is a true residue-killing machine.
Wet or Dry.
Work in the Most Challenging Conditions
A Pro-Till cultivator has the unique ability to cultivate and warm the soil during cold wet conditions when all other forms of tillage plug and fail.
In the midst of a long wet spring, getting seed in the ground to allow adequate time for the growing season is critical. Heavy cold soils need to be black and warm for ideal germination conditions. In as little as one day and after one pass, frigid heavy residue soil is cut, turned, mixed, reactivated, warmed, topically dried and ready for planting/seeding. Pro-Till in the spring can mean the difference between success and failure.
Prepare Your Seedbed Fast.
Seedbed preparation is the very foundation for a strong growing season. Ideally, robust biological activity is enhanced through the accepting, storing and transmitting of water, gases and nutrients. Pro-Till® high performance cultivation levels ruts, crushes clods produces an absolutely perfect seed bed. Pro-Till® is your single tool for tillage
Level Ruts, Instantly
Pro-Till is your single spring and fall solution to tillage needs. Pro-Till is ideal for field finishing, leveling and filling ruts and tracks in the spring or fall. Today’s heavy tractors, trucks, sprayers, grain carts and center-fill planters can produce deep compacted ruts that seriously restrict roots growing space, inhibiting yields and potentially damaging expensive equipment.
The Degelman Pro-Till compact disc cultivator has just the right amount of dirt carrying capacity to level almost any field. One or two additional cross direction passes may be required to completely level and fill the most severe ruts.
Oversized, Over Built, Bulletproof Frame
Degelman designers are passionate about getting it right. Farm tools with the least amount of moving parts will simply last longer. Degelman is renowned for building overbuilt and under complicated equipment. Less is always more.
Floating Self-Contour Technology
Degelman’s floating section design allows the Pro-Till to “Self-Contour” as it follows the curvature of the varying terrain. The independent wing sections allow horizontal contouring for steep inclines or downward slopes up to 6 degrees. The contour angles between the front frame and rear center section also provide excellent front to back flexibility to help traverse demanding hills and valleys. This floating, self-contouring design coupled with the Pro-Till independent discs help produce a flawless, uniform field.
Weight is Inherent in the Overbuilt Frame
Weight equals penetration. Without it, the discs will ride out of the ground if soil conditions are too hard. In order for the discs to work well in hard soil and heavy trash conditions an adequate downward force is required. Other machines require extra weight stacks, but the 23,000 lb. Pro-Till® cultivator carries this weight in the frame where it should be.
State of the Art Software
We start with top-of-the-line 3D software and run our equipment designs through multiple what-if scenarios. Then we put the designs into our Finite Element Analysis (FEA) engineering analysis software. It allows us to simulate the loads our design and mounting hardware will encounter before we ever get to the building and testing stages. Our engineers run a variety of the toughest simulations possible-heavy loads, hard angles and high lifts to find out ahead of time of any problem spots. Then, and only then, do we move to making a prototype to test in the field.
Maximum Trash Flow
The discs have a shallow face to eliminate compaction layers and the high tensile strength steel arms provide maximum flow through with three times the spring back of normal mild steel.
Traditional disc gangs are severely limited by their ability to process residue and level properly. They can plug very quickly during wet seasons, are limited in speed, cannot resist rocks and due to their deeper tillage have a tendency to bring clay soil to the surface.
Improved Roller Trash Flow
With fewer angles and a larger span between the roller and frame Pro-Till 20/26 allows ample room for trash to exit in between.
Flawless Rock Protection
Pro-Till® disc arms are preloaded using four natural rubber spring elements that allow the disc to skate over severe stones, yet perfectly follow the contours of the land. When a stone is encountered, the rubber elements compress automatically dampening the impact and providing protection while immediately springing the disc back into operation.
