Strip Till – Generation 3


Tillage, bed preparation, and fertilizer—in a single pass.

Prepare a tilled zone and leave valuable residue around it for protection of your tender young crop.

Disturb less soil and residue for conservation of water, soil, and organic material, and eliminate wasteful multiple tillage and chemical application passes.

This tool tills planting strips for better crop growing conditions and increased water holding capacity, firms and prepares the seedbed for optimum planting results, and lets you place fertilizer and herbicides at the same time. It easily handles large volumes of crop residue while providing the advantages of combined field operations to reduce field trips. Row unit mounts to 7×7” tool bar. Rugged rear gang is welded from structural tube and may be equipped with virtually any combination of attachments. Extended frame promotes maximum residue and soil flow between tillage components. Tool bars are available in any width (to 60 feet), any row spacing, and in any configuration to meet your needs.

And you can protect your investment against collision damage in rocky soil with optional Auto Reset Linkage.

Now available with Montag Fertilizer System as a customized option from your Bigham dealer!
