When you need a tillage solution designed with versatility in mind to increase your overall efficiency, John Deere has a wide array of options for you to consider. Two products that can help you with the task at hand are the John Deere 2660VT Variable-Intensity Tillage Tool and the John Deere 2680H High-Performance Disk, both of which have both been introduced for the 2019 model year.
Let’s take a closer look at the John Deere 2660VT and 2680H to discover their value on the field.
John Deere 2660VT Variable-Intensity Tillage Tool
The John Deere 2660VT Variable-Intensity Tillage Tool is available in six models with working widths from 20 to 50 feet, in three- and five-section configurations. Operators have the choice of tire options to suit specific needs, including radial, bias or high-floatation tires. Other choices include Walk-Over™ tandem wheels which can provide excellent stability and floatation or stabilizer wheel options which are available based on configuration.
Front-mounted active-hydraulic depth control castering wheels on outer winds come standard on all five-section configurations. The John Deere 2660VT also has compact transport dimensions to help you move between fields with ease, enhancing productivity each day. The three-section models are under 14 feet high, and the five-section models fold to less than 15.5-feet wide. In addition, the John Deere 2660VT also features the two-part ProFinish Leveling system which effectively reduces clods and pin residue.
John Deere 2680H High-Performance Disk
The John Deere 2680H High-Performance Disk can be used for tillage throughout both the fall and the spring. With a capability of traveling at speeds up to 14 miles per hour, this machine can cover more ground in a shorter amount of time. Ultimately, this results in more productivity efficiency for operators.
The disk has individual 20-inch smooth or notched disk blades mounted on a rubber torsion suspension system. This allows the blades to follow the contours of the ground for an overall smoother ride. The blades, which have 10-inch spacing for maximum residue flow, are angled 17 degrees on the front rank and 14 degrees on the rear rank for aggressive horizontal soil movement.The John Deere 2680H High-Performance Disk has an easy-to-manage depth control system, along with greaseless bushings and bearings that increase uptime and reduce the need for frequent maintenance.
Fifteen different models are available from an eight-foot model to drawn models of up to 45-feet wide. The goal is to match customers’ acreage size and horsepower requirements.
