Erdvark Minimum Till Ripper – MTWillem Oosthuizen
The Minimum Till Ripper – MT has hydraulic reset tines. The shanks are long 450mm x 20 mm hard-wearing material infused with tungsten tiles on the front. The main aim here is to break compaction up to 450mm deep with minimal mixing of the soil. A 20 mm point with 70 mm wing is also available. The farmer has a choice of what tine spacing he wants. We have however fount with the tests done in the Western Cape wheat fields that a 400mm spacing gives a good breakup of the compaction.
The hydraulic reset tine has a 12 kN or 1200 kg breakaway. The implement is available in 3-point and trailed models.
