Ensuring Tillage Application Is Consistent
11/21/2013Large tillage tools should be level from side to side, and from front to back to ensure they work the soil at a consistent, even depth, without gouging or ridging. A handy way to ensure tools are level is to use a tape to measure from the top of the machine (SF1435) to the top of the wheel pivot bolt on walking tandems of the center frame and wing wheels. On models where the dimensions of the frame members vary, measure from the bottom of the frame to the wheel pivot bolt. When measurements are consistent, the tool is level.
