McFarlane Mfg. Single & Double Rolling Basket Mount Harrow
Following behind your field cultivator, the wide spiral blades of the baskets toss soil high enough to separate soil. Finer, firmer soil settles into the seedbed while small clods remain on the soil surface to resist erosion, evaporation and crusting. What’s left behind is a firm, level bed ready for planting in a single pass. The Rolling Basket is the ideal tool for weed control. It provides excellent shallow chemical incorporation by taking herbicides to the proper soil depth. This tool can also be used for non-chemical weed control. The blades of the rolling basket uproot weeds intact, leaving them on the soil surface to dry and die.

McFarlane Mfg. Specialty Harrows - Reel Till Harrow
The Combination Tillage Tool That Tames Tough Field Conditions In A Single Pass

Hard packed, tough stalk stubble, heavy clays, and high residue can make field preparation a real challenge. Of course, you can tackle tough soils with a variety of tools, covering the same ground again and again. Or you can get the Reel Till – the combination tillage tool that tames tough soils in a single pass.

Four Tools In One
The unique design is actually four tools in one. Together, these four tools do what no single tool can do and it saves preparation time and lets you plant sooner. The coulters loosen the first few inches of soil and cut residue. This enables the spiral reel, with its five hardened – steel blades, to cut and loosen the residue in the opposite direction and distribute it evenly on the surface. The flexible 5-bar spike tooth harrow stirs, firms and levels the soil turned by the coulter and reel – leaving behind a finely ground, yet firm seedbed. This helps dry topsoil for earlier planting while also sealing in moisture at lower levels. The feathering board puts the finishing touch on the whole process. It smoothes the entire seedbed – leaving your fields ready to plant.

In spring, the Reel Till loosens the top few inches of soil so it warms up and dries out faster. Using the Reel Till helps get crops into the field sooner. Moreover, soil won’t compact. It remains loose and level.

Higher Yields – The Root Of The Matter
Saving time in field preparation isn’t the only reason to use the Reel Till. The advanced agricultural technology of the Reel Till eliminates the need for any horizontal tillage tools like disks or field cultivator sweeps which can change soil density and adversely affect higher yields.

The Reel Till also enhances the potential for fuller and stronger root development. Strong root structure is essential to a crop’s successful growth and development. The better a crop’s root structure, the better the crop.

A four-year study conducted by Farm Journal magazine discovered that uniform soil density is the key to fuller root development.

McFarlane’s Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper, using the same tool configuration as the Reel Till without the coulter, prepared a firm seedbed without compacting the subsoil. This helped promote uniform soil density and maximum root development and increase yields (up to $28 per acre). We believe that the Reel Till will provide the same result, especially in hard-packed soil where some initial ripping is essential for seedbed preparation.

New 3 Bar & Rolling Basket Feature
The new 3 bar heavy-duty sections have all the great features of the 5 bar, but with better residue handling capability. The increase in residue cover due to more corn on corn acres was the key to designing this combination. Adjustable down pressure on the rolling basket can make it aggressive for clod sizing and firming or passive for soil separating and conditioning.

High-carbon flat blades have been added for long life and durability in tough conditions.

Large 12" diameter reel keeps residue and soil moving without plugging. The 8 blades leave the soil profile smooth with larger and smaller particles separated

McFarlane Mfg. Specialty Harrows - Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper Harrow
Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper Seedbed Conditioner

There has been only one sure-fire way to get more production per acre. Put more into the acre.

- More fertilizer
- More herbicide
- More minerals
- More moisture
- More work

Until harvest time, you never know if you will get enough additional yield to pay for all the additional inputs. Of course, this isn’t the only risk producers take. But wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to significantly increase yields without increasing inputs?
Now there is.

It’s the Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper, a new concept in tillage from McFarlane Manufacturing, maker of America’s finest Harrows. In controlled side-by-side tests, McFarlane’s Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper consistently improved yields.

The Root Of The Matter
Strong root structure is essential to a crop’s health, growth, and development. In fact, it’s fair to say “the better the root structure, the better the crop”. Crops grown in fields prepared with the Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper have significantly stronger and more fully developed root structures.

Why?
Because the Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper prepares a superior seedbed. In fact, the Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper is specifically designed to do all the field preparation tasks necessary for peak production. In traditional, minimum, or no-till applications. Usually in a single pass.

Residue Management
The Spiral Reel Stalk Chipper won’t bury valuable topsoil residue. In a single step, the soil is loosened, stirred, firmed, and leveled. Now your crop is ready for planting in the best seedbed you’ve ever made!

The Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper cuts stalks off at ground level, loosens the roots, and levels the field without burying residue.

In spring, the Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper loosens soil so that it warms up and dries out faster. Using the Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper helps get crops into the field sooner. Soil won’t compact. It remains loose, level and firm – ideal for the developing root structures of crops.

Three Tools In One
The Spiral Reel Stalk Chopper is perfectly designed for field preparation. Its five hardened spiral steel blades chop heavy crop stubble at ground level and loosen soil around the root.

Next, the 5-Bar Flexible Spike Tooth Harrow stirs, levels, and firms the loosened soil.

Finally, the trailing spreader board completes the process, feathering residue and leveling plow ridges.

McFarlane Mfg. Vertical Tillage - Reel Disk Harrow
McFarlane Manufacturing introduces new seedbed preparation tool.

The new “Reel Disk” from McFarlane Mfg. is our latest development in vertical tillage and can satisfy all of the demands of today’s farming practices, especially BT corn and corn on corn cropping. This new tool, featuring ultra-shallow concave disk blades, loosens the top 2-3 inches of the soil yet leaves the seedbed firm. This ensures accurate seed depth at planting, resulting in even emergence and better yields. Smoothing uneven ground and removing small weeds are done quickly at the 7-9 mph operating speeds.

The Reel Disk is available in widths up to 35-ft and requires approximately 8-9 hp/ft.

The ultra-shallow leading disk blades on 7” centers easily penetrate the soil and slice residue into manageable pieces. The gang angle can be set aggressive for more soil movement to bury residue or can be set passive to leave more residue on the surface.

Reversible scrapers are two-way adjustable to maintain optimum disk blade performance. Following the disks is a rank of seven-blade, 18-inch diameter spiral reels that crosscut the residue and mix it into the soil, aiding decomposition. This is the same spiral reel used on our popular Reel Till. To produce the firm and level seedbed for optimum germination and yields, our proven 3-bar spike harrow follows the spiral reel.

The heavy-duty harrow follows the ground contour closely and is flexible to allow residue to flow through. The final touch for the perfect seedbed is our 12-inch diameter rolling basket.

The basket features eight, high-carbon flat bars with adjustable down pressure to make it aggressive for clod sizing and firming or passive for soil separating and conditioning.
