What tillage options exist for BOTH corn secondary and soybean single pass with a single implement?

I'm currently using a disk + cultivator + tine harrow style soil finisher as secondary tillage behind chisel plowing for corn. I also use this for single pass tillage on SB stubble before corn planting. I would like to also be able to do some single pass tillage of corn stalks in front of soybeans in the spring (weed control, bury some residue to enable lower SB populations and more even emergence). However, my current machine tends to ball stalks when running through corn stalks without primary tillage. What solutions are people using successfully to fill all of these use cases with a single implement?

********* Incite. Adjustable front disk angle (on the go), adjustable depth reel (on the go), another disk gang, spike harrow, rolling basket. Classified as vertical tillage does a nice job of incorporation and leave a nice level finish. The reel looks just like the old horse drawn stalk chopper reels.

I really like the look of the new Halo Salford that adjusts disk angle on the go.

Thanks *****. What brand/model? No issues with stalk balling ever?

I think we had a Krause 3121, but for sure know we had a Landoll Tillall 876 30ft, we never really had problems with stalks when we did tillage that’s spring.

We used a 20ft Krause , but then Sold it for a Landoll , we only had a couple times when the stalks would bind together in wet spots, but the landol went threw more bearings and repair that our old Krause

We use a soil finisher and we often adjusted the disks in the front to the different levels of residue.
