Turbo with a Twist
The Turbo-Chopper® from Great Plains combines our aggressive Turbo Blades with the action of a turbo-patterned chopper reel. This allows for a “crisscross” pattern for chopping residue and working the soil, while still maintaining the benefits of vertical tillage.
This unit offers the versatility of a fall tillage tool, combined with its use as a spring tillage unit for seedbed preparation. The “crisscross” pattern of this unit allows aggressive, uniform residue sizing. The Turbo Coulters are 20" in diameter with 10" spacing, followed by the 18" diameter chopper reels. Both gangs of coulter and chopper reels are mounted on heavy 3" C-shanks with maintenance-free 211 bearings.
The 18" chopper reels consist of six 4½" high carbon steel blades. The unique spiral design allows constant contact with the soil to maximize cutting and reduce the vibration experienced with competitive reels. The chopper reels work perpendicularly to the Turbo Coulters, providing a smooth seedbed for your planter. Our patented rolling harrow and reel combination is the recommended rear attachment for the ultimate seedbed for your planter.
ROLLING SPIKE HARROW
This attachment loosens, levels, and breaks up clods to put the "finishing touch" on the perfect seedbed.
Both the Turbo gang and the chopper gang are suspended by 1" x 3" C-shanks and both gangs use the heavy-duty 211 rubber-cushioned bearing in cast housing to provide reliable service.
The angled chopper blades run perpendicularly to the Turbo Blades, ensuring complete and thorough chopping of the residue and a profile that is level and uniform to the depth of the front coulters.
Exclusive Maintenance-Free Bearings
Great Plains uses the exclusive PEER® TILLXTREME® Maintenance-Free Pillow-Block Bearings in its gangs, as well as smaller TILLXTREME Maintenance-Free Bearings in its rolling attachments.
