JOHN DEERE FLOATING HITCH FIELD CULTIVATOR 2230FH
FLOATING HITCH FIELD CULTIVATOR
Working widths from 25ft, 6 in. to 69 ft, 6 in. (7.8 to 21.2 m)
Follows ground contour, stays level
Lattice-style frame design
Hydraulically adjustable rolling baskets
WIDE RANGE OF WORKING WIDTHS AVAILABLE TO MATCH ACREAGE AND HORSEPOWER REQUIREMENTS
At 16-km/h (10-mph) working speeds, the 2230FH can cover up to 34 ha (84 acres) per hour, enabling producers to size their implement for their unique productivity and agronomic needs. The 2230FH is available in sizes ranging from 7.8 to 21.2 m (25 ft, 6 in. to 69 ft, 9 in.). Horsepower requirements range from 19.6-29.4 kw/m (8 to 12 hp-ft), depending on the soil, depth, and speed.
FLOATING HITCH FRAME KEEPS IMPLEMENT LEVEL ACROSS VARYING TERRAIN
The 2230FH Floating Hitch Field Cultivator offers superior ground-hugging capability with precise depth and pressure control across all types of terrain. The floating hitch frame design enables this field cultivator to work independently of the tractor and follow the contour of the ground so the implement remains level. The 2230FH commands consistent depth from front to back and from side to side.
TRUE 152-MM (6-IN.) SPLIT-THE-MIDDLE SPACING PROVIDES COMPLETE FIELD COVERAGE
Thanks to an updated frame design that enables true 152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing, the 2230 Field Cultivators can maintain consistent depth and evenly cover the field to achieve an optimal seedbed and manage weeds.
Even at high speeds and in tough field conditions, the TruPosition C-shanks with 91 kg (200 lb) of trip force minimize side-to-side movement and provide the operator better control of the soil profile for improved leveling capabilities. These shanks provide a full tillage cut across the entire width of the implement. The shanks stay firmly planted in tough soils without quickly relieving. As a result, the soil is mixed completely and streaks are reduced. This helps producers maximize their productivity and create flat seedbeds for smooth planter operation and consistent seed depth.
The even 152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing enables the 2230 Field Cultivator to minimize the potential of remaining strips of weeds that survive the tillage pass. With a field cultivator pass just prior to planting/seeding, the crop can emerge into a weed-free field that gives it the best chance to reach canopy ahead of the weeds. If some weeds emerge and a post-emergence herbicide is needed, weeds should be smaller and easier to control. As a result, the field cultivator pass helps keep weed management costs under control and helps preserve crop yield potential.
VARIETY OF SWEEPS PROVIDE SOLUTIONS FOR ALL SOIL CONDITIONS
Bolt-on, knock-on, and s-tine sweep options are available to customize the 2230 Field Cultivators to perform well in a variety of field conditions. John Deeres high-productivity sweep options are recommended for the high-working-speed market and perform best at speeds of 11-16 km/h (7-10 mph). With a low profile and curved wing shape, the high-productivity sweeps provide low draft and consistent penetration while easily getting through tough and heavy residue. Compared to Tru-Width sweeps, high-productivity sweeps are designed to exert less draft and retain their shape for longer wear life so producers can stay productive in the field longer. The high-productivity sweeps are available bolt-on and the knock-on Perma-Loc versions. They fit all 47-degree standards with 44-mm (1.75-in.) hole spacing and 11 mm (0.4375 in.) that currently take Tru-Width sweeps, both John Deere and other makes.
The Tru-Width design offers the following benefits:
Maintains full cutting width and point through the life of the sweep
Gives greater wear life and improved performance over regular sweeps
Provides superior scouring and penetration
Works soil well for level seedbed and good seed-to-soil contact
Gives excellent chemical incorporation
Wears evenly and pulls easily
Replacement without charge if breakage occurs before appreciable wear
PROFINISH LEVELING SYSTEM OFFERS WIDE RANGE OF REAR HARROWS TO MEET AGRONOMIC NEEDS
The ProFinish Leveling System offers a wide range of rear harrows to meet agronomic needs. Depending on agronomic needs, producers have a choice of six rear harrow options included in the ProFinish Leveling System on the 2230 Field Cultivators.
TRUSET TILLAGE PROVIDES PRECISE DEPTH AND PRESSURE CONTROL FROM THE CAB ON THE GO
Integrated TruSet Tillage technology enables field cultivator operators to adjust sweep depth and down pressure on the active hydraulic rolling baskets while on the go to respond to changing field conditions such as varying soils, heavier residue, and moisture. With short window of time to perform tillage operations, TruSet can provide significant productivity improvements as operators are able to adjust the field cultivator while covering acres with the push of a button. By responding to conditions as they change throughout the field, TruSet enables operators to generate better-quality tillage performance with the first pass. Using a GreenStar display, a user sees real-time data for sweep depth and basket down pressure for assurance of desired tillage outcomes. Once the actual set point is validated and configured to the display in the cab, operators are able to make independent adjustments as small as one tenth of an inch. Four customizable presets enable operators to save and name different combinations of settings for their most common field conditions. Single-point depth control is included with the TruSet Tillage system, giving operators the choice of automated or manual adjustments. Hydraulic routings on the 2230 Field Cultivators are designed to allow each implement to feature both TruSet and standard single-point depth control for system redundancy, operator preference, and flexibility at resale.
