Move from plough to min-till with the Sumo Subsoiler. This heavy-duty subsoiler features a V-shaped frame which lets soil and trash flow more efficiently. Subsoiling is an effective technique to solve soil compaction problems in shrinking, freezing, drying or cracking soils, and is particularly effective in headlands and tramlines. The Subsoiler offers cost savings through labour, fuel, crop inputs and machine wear and tear, and a better bottom line as a result of improved soil structure and improved yields. The Subsoiler can also be used as a one pass drill with the addition of a seeder and SDO Single Disc Opener accessories. SUBSOILING LEGS The design of the Subsoiler leg/point arrangement means that the forward mounted point creates a wedge under the soil, lifting and cracking the soil profile ahead of the leg and opens a slot for the leg to run through. The legs alleviate compaction by subtly lifting the soil and stretching it to create vertical cracks so roots can penetrate the soil, while the lifting lets air in to assist biological activity and further stabilise the soil over time. PACKER ROLLER At the back of the machine the Multipacka consolidates and levels leaving a weatherproof finish. The patented Multipacka shoulders create a trough in which surface water can move into and also help drive the packer and eliminate smears on the soil surface. The design increases soil’s resistance to wind and water erosion as the finish reduces the amount of soil particles that are carried away by the wind. It is developed to reduce soil moisture loss and co2 produced in tillage. The Multipacka can reduce short-term co2 emissions, protecting the environment.
