The Chisel Ripper moving forward
... and the Chisel Ripper.
Over the years when looking for the short-term benefits of the Chisel Ripper to soybeans one of the most obvious benefits has been the lack of sudden death in beans. I attribute this to compaction reduction. You notice this problem on the headland, which you do not see when you use the Chisel Ripper. This supports my theory because this is where you will get the highest compaction from turning. This year our fields, for the most part, have matured enough that the yields will not be hurt by sudden death. That said we did notice that on one nearby field which we know to was highly compacted that the crop appears to be suffering at a near to 20% damage rate. In todays tight profit margins, you can't afford to lose any yields, especially those which can be easily rectified.
If you want to increase your yields, use our Chisel Ripper to make sure you get every cent out of every acre!
hen you watch videos of Chisel Ripper in motion note how the soil flies from up around the rear shanks. That is one of the ways our tillage tool sets itself apart from the rest. We have designed the Chisel Ripper to shatter the soil use of forwarding motion. Chisel plows roll the earth over which requires more horsepower. That will not allow the chisel plow to go as deep as we are able. The shanks on a chisel plow are usually closer together, which requires more Horsepower per working foot. The forward shatter from the Chisel Ripper expands the furrows from the bottom point to the top. The center tines work what is left. If You compare the Chisel Ripper to a disc-ripper (this is the closest equivalent tool). The disc ripper forces the large points into the soil. They need to lift to perform there tasks and the heavy disc-blades to work the soil between the rows. When you are done, you have not aerated the soil plus used a lot of fuel and power to do it. If you are not a large enough farmer you may not have a tractor available. Our tool has everything covered. A regular V-ripper was the same issues. Then in wet soil both tend to smear and may not get the desired lift you need. With our tool, you able to get positive results in wet soil.
I personally have never let what others say or do influence what I know is possible. If someone says I cannot it becomes a challenge to me. I never stop trying to improve on whatever I am doing. No matter what job I have ever done and no matter what I feel, I look back and learn something from it.
