Practical Tillage Economics
The Landoll 2400 Series Weatherproofer 1 (WP1) offers a combination of parabolic ripper shanks and tandem disc gangs that provide the most effective primary tillage tool in the market place. The ability to manage the soil, water, and residue all with a single pass is exactly what the industry has been asking for. The 2400 Series Weatherproofer 1 fulfills this need.
Simplicity in Primary Tillage
Primary tillage tools have had to evolve to meet the needs of current production agricultural practices. High yielding crops produce high levels of residue. Primary tillage tools have to be able to manage this residue effectively. The simplicity of the Weatherproofer 1 and the ease of adjustment allows this series to perform up to its expectations every time. Single point depth control sets the disc gangs to cut the residue. The shank working depth is adjusted via two bolts per shank leg. The Weatherproofer 1 Series is truly a “set it and forget it” type of tool. This simplicity makes operation of the Weatherproofer 1 very user friendly.
Sizes to Fit
Landoll has designed the 2400 Series in sizes to fit a wide variety of operations. Starting with the rigid frame in 6, 7 and 9 shank models (7 and 9 shank models are available with folding frames for 14’ 6” transport width) all the way up to the folding 11 and 13 shank models, the basic configurations are the same. Tandem offset disc gangs located upfront cut, size and blend the residue with auto-reset ripper shanks following to facilitate soil management and compaction control. 24” shank spacing on all models provides ultimate fracturing of soil profiles to allow water and oxygen to enter into the growth environment. Optional rear leveling devices allow the operator to choose the best match for his expectations and needs.
The Landoll Way
Landoll’s solid reputation of building quality tillage equipment is built into every 2400 Series Weatherproofer 1. Precision, laser cut frame components embrace the technology of robotic welding to its fullest. Durability is built-in, not added on. Incorporation of UHMW polymer in the lift axles provides a maintenance-free feature that eliminates daily greasing. Trunnion mount bearings that are cushioned by c-flex mounts are used throughout the disc assemblies and are covered by a 3-year warranty. Heavy-duty coil spring auto-reset shanks allow 3,600 lbs. of point load with a 16” trip height. The self-leveling hitch and the single point depth control add to the list of items that extend the reliability of the Weatherproofer 1 beyond the competition.
