Sub Soiler

The Brillion line of Sub Soilers includes 1, 2 or 3 shank models. Laser cut, shear bolt parabolic shanks with 2” flat points and wear strips make up the ground engaging end of a very basic tillage machine. Read More…

Basic Machine/Basic Tillage

The Brillion Sub Soilers are built on an all welded one-piece frame. The shanks bolt to a set of adjustable angle irons that are fastened to the underside of the frame. The rear shank mount bolt is the pivot; the front shank mount bolt is the shear bolt. When an obstruction is encountered, the front bolt will shear and the shank will trip rearward to clear the obstruction. The machine must then be raised out of the soil, the shank returned to position and a new shear bolt installed. This is a very user friendly procedure to minimize downtime in the field. The Sub Soiler is designed to operate at a maximum depth of 16”. Since maximum horsepower requirements are limited to 120 HP, these units are designed for small to medium size operations. These machines are close coupled to the tractor with a three-point hitch.

Small Machines/Big Capacity

Brillion Sub Soilers are small in size. However, they have the capacity to handle compaction issues just like many other sophisticated units on the market costing much more. Many specialty producers rely on Brillion Sub Soilers for vineyard and orchard work. Others use these machines as entry level compaction control units. It’s all about meeting expectations! Brillion can do it!
