Kalida, Ohio – January 30, 2017 ─ Unverferth Manufacturing Co., Inc. announces larger 30’ to 40’ working-width models of its rugged and reliable Perfecta® field cultivator. The Perfecta implement combines a tillage, leveling and finishing action all in one tool for one-pass row-crop planting.
The new larger-width models feature 6” x 4” front frame tubing with a trussed mainframe design for added durability. The new sizes also feature a floating wing design that automatically raises 15 degrees and lowers by 5 degrees for easily following field contours.
Three rows of staggered, high-clearance S-tines provide the main tillage action up to 6” deep with three S-tine choices of models 10, 12 and 14. The Perfecta model 10 features standard 1¼-inch by ½-inch S-tines with 2¾-inch goosefoot shovels for effective soil finishing in previously worked soils. The model 12 is equipped with 1¾ inch by ½ -inch heavy-duty S-tines with 4-inch sweeps for effective penetration in heavier, unworked soils and rocky conditions. Heavy-duty, edge-bent S-tines are standard on the model 14. Edge-bent tines feature 7-inch sweeps for working in the toughest soils for maximum tillage and consistent depth.
The tool-free adjustable leveling bar breaks clods and levels the soil and is fitted with choice of spike teeth or diagonal round teeth. The 12” diameter Rolling Harrow® baskets complete the process by further mixing, leveling and knocking soil from weed roots to leave them on the soil surface to die. Standard gauge wheels feature tool-free adjustability for consistent working depth across the machine’s width.
With the larger-width Perfecta models, growers can cover more acres in a day, saving fuel and time by tilling, leveling and finishing in a single pass. In addition to row crops, the Perfecta tillage tool is also useful for driveway and arena maintenance and vegetable production with bedded crop models. The high-gloss, powder-coat color finishes of tractor red or green help resist corrosion. An optional transport light package provides enhanced safety when travelling on public roadways.
