Anyone looking to sell a vertical tillage tool?
I have a 25ft. Kwik till I'm looking to sell but I need to do some work to it first.
What do you pull it with and what would be your minimum horsepower recommendation?
I pull it with a 530 hp tractor but that is over kill. looking to go to a 40 ft. when we first got it I was pulling it with a 350hp tractor and it handled it but in the hills and in wet condition it struggled. You need to go 10-12 mph to do the best job. you can see the difference if you go slower than that. 10hp/min. hp is important but you also need to think about suspension and ride. It can be a rough ride in an older tractor. Love the tool. I have all sorts of data but bottom line is our yields have improved where we use it versus where we don't.
I definitely would not buy a vertical tillage tool thinking that I could pull it with any less then 10hp/ft- working width. You must run at a decent speed to make these things do their job, but what a nice job they will do
