The Kuhn Krause 4830-530 In-Line Ripper is the ideal tool to fight soil compaction, one of the leading causes of yield reduction. Designed to provide maximum soil fracturing while leaving most surface residue intact, the 4830 effectively reduces runoff and soil erosion.
– Designed for deep tillage with strength and durability in mind, the 4830 standard Category III 3-point hitch is integrated into a two bar frame design with main members of heavy-duty 6”x 6” structural steel tubing.
– Heavy-duty 22’’ diameter x ¼’’ thick coulters are standard equipment on each row of all 4830 In-Line Rippers. These rugged coulters feature 450 pounds of down-pressure to slice through the toughest crop residues. Coulter hubcaps are secured with metal retainers to ensure bearing protection.
-Spring reset recommended for field conditions where obstacles or rocks may be encountered. Spring steel shank arms are designed to allow side-to-side movement of the shank without damaging or bending the shank mount.
-The no-till point and 8’’ wing break up compacted soil layers while the narrow ¾’’ shank slips through the soil leaving up to 86% residue on the surface. With replaceable wear parts, this no-till design offers operation cost saving versus competitors.
