Chopper Lister®


The Chopper Lister is the perfect one-pass tool with aggressive residue incorporation to support high-speed precision planting. The Chopper Lister aggressively works in the soil to build uniform seedbeds and optimize irrigation and drainage in a single pass.

The main action of the Chopper Lister is Bigham’s standard 5-blade chopper reels that penetrate the ground up to 5” deep to break up clods and residue and incorporate chemicals.

The spring steel chisel shanks with 11 narrow or 8 inch busters are located behind the chopper reel to increase it’s effectiveness by not working freshly pulled up soil. The spring shanks are equipped with no-trip foot pieces for more up-time and less maintenance, while allowing for better residue flow than rigid shank options.

The Chopper Lister’s double tumbler baskets can be customized with any two of your choice of flat bar basket, round bar basket, or 12” solid pipe roller with turnbuckle adjustable scraper.

Standard with a Category 3, 3N, and 4N hitch in your choice of frame color, the Bigham Chopper Lister is the perfect design for your bedding needs.
