JOHN DEERE VARIABLE INTENSITY TILLAGE 2660VT
SIMPLIFY THE RESIDUE EQUATION
Your fields are complex, with a lot of variables. The new John Deere 2660VT Variable-Intensity Tillage tool helps you solve them. With working speeds up to 10 mph (16.1 km/h), cover up to 60 acres (24.3 ha) per hour for the productivity you demand. Adjustable gang angle. The 0-to 12-degree adjustable gang angle lets you adapt to changing field conditions in both spring and fall. TruSet allows you to adjust to changing conditions or easily dial in the desired field finish from the cab in seconds.
EXCLUSIVE COMMANDER BLADE
With its double-cut edge, this blade penetrates hard conditions, fractures soil, breaks up clods, cuts and sizes residue while handling all soil types and field conditions with ease. Highquality hardened steel allows the 22-inch (55.9-cm) wavy straight, 0.25-in (6.5-mm) Commander Blade to retain its sharp cutting edge. It absorbs impacts in rocky conditions, because the inside of the blade is built to flex. It all adds up to durability and even wear life.
ProFinish Leveling System features double hydraulic rolling baskets with up to 900psi of down pressure. Handles high levels of residue and leaves a smooth, level field finish. The front knife-edge basket in a reversed orientation allows the basket to passively keep soil and residue in the profile, mixes, pins, and buries residue and fractures sub-surface ridges.
The rear basket, either a flat bar or a round bar basket, distributes residue, reduces clods, and firms the soil to preserve moisture and level out the surface and subsurface finish.
Compact Transport Dimensions. The 2660VT is designed with tight and narrow dimensions for easy transportability, with transport widths from 13 ft. 3 in. (4 m) to 17 ft. 6 in. (5.3 m) and transport heights of 11 ft. (3.4 m) and 14 ft. 3 in. (4.3 m.)
Tire Options. Choose radial tires for increased durability in field and during transport compared to bias tires. Radial flotation tires help reduce the effects of compaction and get you into the field sooner.
WORKING IN 4 STAGES OF RESIDUE AND SOIL PROCESSING
The new 2660VT Variable-Intensity Tillage tool works in four stages to manage residue and create the best seedbed possible.
Stage 1: Cutting and Sizing Fractures soil, generates tiny clods, cuts and sizes residue
Stage 2: Distributing and Mixing Continues mixing soil and residue, aggressive sub-surface soil blow out, slices residue, places it in contact with soil to start nutrient cycling process
Stage 3: Reconsolidation Re-orients soil, reduces clods, mixes and pins residue to the surface, providing a smooth uniform seedbed
Stage 4: Leveling Pulverizes clods, removes soil from root balls, mixes remaining residue, promotes seed-to-soil contact and leaves a level field finish
WIDE RANGE OF WORKING WIDTHS AVAILABLE TO MATCH ACREAGE AND POWER REQUIREMENTS
With working speeds up to 16.1 km/h (10 mph), the 2660VT can increase productivity and cover up to 24.2 ha (60 acres) per hour.
The 2660VT is available in sizes ranging from 6.68 m to 15.2 m (21 ft to 50 ft). Power requirements range from 24.5 to 34.25 kW/m (10 to 14 hp/ft) depending on the gang angle, soil, depth and speed. Multiple configurations enable producers to size their implement for their operation and agronomic needs.
VERSATILITY TO ADAPT TO CHANGING FIELD CONDITIONS WITH A 0- TO 12-DEGREE GANG ANGLE
In the pursuit of a consistent field finish, producers are wanting a vertical tillage tool with great versatility in both the spring and the fall. For some producers, vertical tillage may mean a true 0-degree gang angle to leave more residue for highly erodible land. For others, it includes a more aggressive gang angle with greater horizontal soil movement to even out the field, fill in light ruts, remove weeds, or incorporate more residue.
To meet these ever-changing field conditions, the 2660VT has an adjustable gang angle from 0 degrees to 12 degrees. This means that producers can adapt to both spring and fall fieldwork, as well as adjust to and match changing conditions within the same field or between different fields. Producers need to address multiple agronomic challenges like residue, weeds, and light ruts, and create an ideal seedbed even in changing field conditions. This range of gang angles allows operators to increase or decrease the gang angle to adapt to these challenges in the field.
QUICK AND EASY GANG ANGLE ADJUSTMENTS
The 2660VT offers two different methods to adjust the gang angle to adapt to changing field conditions. With the TruSet system, the gang angle can be adjusted on the go from the cab, or it can be manually adjusted with the quick and easy-to-use gang roller slider.
Quick and easy-to-adjust
Pull and lock open the spring-loaded pin, slide the gang to the new position, and lock it back in place
Adjust gang angle in increments of two degrees (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12)
Done with the push of a button on the display
Adjust gang angle in increments of one degree (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12)
VERTICAL TILLAGE AGRONOMIC CHALLENGES
The 2660VT adjustable gang angle helps speed up soil warmup, so operators can get in the field to plant sooner.
It also levels the surface and sub-surface to ensure excellent planter ride quality and improves emergence that contributes to greater yields.
With the gang angle set at 0 degrees, operators get vertical soil movement and can chop, size, and pin residue.
Adjusting the gang angle from 1 to 12 degrees will provide more horizontal soil movement. The more aggressive the gang angle, the more soil mixing and burying of residue. Operators can remove light ruts, tracks, and weeds at the most aggressive gang angle.
EXCLUSIVE COMMANDER BLADE AND EXTENDED-LIFE BEARINGS
Exclusive to John Deere and designed specifically for the 2660VT, the Commander blade works across the entire gang angle range from 0 to 12 degrees. These low-draft, wavy straight blades on 18.41-cm (7.25-in.) spacing use a serrated edge to fracture and lift soil as well as cut and size residue.
The 55.9-cm (22-in.) wavy straight blade was designed with a double-cut edge which has specialized angled bevels to easily penetrate the ground, even in hard soil conditions. The straight wavy blade with shallow concavity leads to reduced blade compaction and less soil smearing than traditional smooth blades.
Adjusting the gang angle from 1 to 12 degrees will provide more horizontal soil movement. The more aggressive the gang angle, the more soil mixing and burying of residue.
PROFINISH SYSTEM HYDRAULIC DOUBLE ROLLING BASKETS PROVIDE A SMOOTH AND LEVEL FIELD FINISH
John Deeres ProFinish leveling system features a double rolling basket configuration as the solution for producers looking to flow high levels of residue and leave a smooth, level field finish. The front knife-edge basket in a reversed orientation allows the basket to passively keep soil and residue in the profile and adds an additional step that mixes, pins, and buries residue. They help size clods and pin residue to reduce erosion in the fall, break down residue over the winter, and then leave a firm, smooth, and level seedbed finish in the spring. The rear basket can be configured with either a flat bar or a round bar basket, depending on the producers agronomic needs. These baskets help distribute residue, reduce clods, and firm the soil to preserve moisture and level out the surface and sub-surface finish. The drawbars and rolling baskets are built with strength in mind for demanding vertical tillage conditions. With these rolling baskets, a cast frame was designed to encase the bearing in a high-density polymer liner to allow dynamic movement and maintenance-free characteristics. The active hydraulic rolling basket features maintenance-free bearings to minimize non-productive activities.
COMPACT TRANSPORT DIMENSIONS
Producers are increasing the size of their operations and adding miles of transport to their day. To accommodate those changing demands, the 2660VT is designed with tight and narrow dimensions for easy transportability.
Low power lines and narrow roads and bridges can be a concern when transporting equipment. The 2660VT has a compact transport design that minimizes transport height and width to provide some of the best transport dimensions in the industry.
Increase productivity and get a true working width with every pass with the full-width 2660VT. No overlap is required with the soil shield equipped on the 2660VT. The soil shield is designed to keep soil and residue in the profile at more aggressive gang angles. Reduce passes through the field and cover more acres per hour all while decreasing fuel usage.
