JOHN DEERE COMBINATION RIPPER 2730
PRACTICALLY PICTURE PERFECT
The 2730 Combination Ripper is a four-in-one tillage system that sizes stalks, buries residue, reduces compaction and leaves the field finish you want in just one pass, fully prepared for the next phase of your seedbed preparation cycle.
Adjust depth in six seconds on the go
In-cab control of each functional area
1/10th-in. (2.5-mm) accuracy
Expanded tractor compatibility
STAY IN THE FIELD LONGER, WITH MORE UPTIME. The 2730s large frame and tires for heavy-duty durability reduce downtime. Featuring a true-width design, the 2730 Ripper delivers up to a full 26-ft. (7.9-m) working width.
MAKE ADJUSTMENTS FROM THE CAB AND ON-THE-GO WITH TRUSET.
When you make one adjustment, like lowering the ripper shank, TruSet automatically adjusts the components of the tool (disks, closing wheels and basket pressure) to maintain a consistent field finish. TruSet takes the guesswork out of making adjustments.
SLICE AND BURY TOUGH RESIDUE WITH LESS PLUGGING.
No residue is too tough for the 2730, featuring 350 lbs. (159 kg) of downforce per blade. The 26-in. (66-cm) blades are available in a gang configuration or individually mounted. Parabolic standards are spaced at 24 in. (61 cm) and operate up to 16 in. (40.6 cm) deep, shattering root-limiting compaction. A full 38-in. (96.5 cm) of underframe clearance helps improve residue flow, minimizing plugs even in high-residue conditions.
ADJUST TO A WIDE RANGE OF FIELD CONDITIONS.
Its quick and easy to match disks, closing disks, ripper shanks and rear attachments to set the foundation for your next crop. Adjustable depth 24-in. (61-cm) shank spacing delivers full hardpan fracture across the entire soil profile. Rolling basket and coil-tine harrow finishing attachments prepare your fall finish for one shallow secondary tillage pass, saving you time and money.
CONSISTENT FIELD FINISH.
Youll see a consistent field finish across the entire width of the implement, thanks to the closing wheels and available three-position active hydraulic rolling basket.
LASERRIP II RIPPER POINTS.
Made from an exclusive cast making them stronger and more durable than previous ripper points. The top-plated wings improve penetration into hard ground and the LaserRip II ripper points are recommended in rocky conditions. The unique profile lifts and fractures the soil, fluffing rather than bulldozing and compacting. The wing profile creates less draft, resulting in easier pulling and lower horsepower requirements.
INTERNAL BASKET SCRAPERS
The internal basket scraper allows for a uniform field finish in wet conditions because the baskets will not need to be raised out of ground to avoid plugging and can stay in the ground 100 percent of the time.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL IMPLEMENT FOR SINGLE-PASS PRIMARY TILLAGE
The 2730 is a combination ripper that integrates four operational areas into one system. These four areas consist of disk blades, ripper shanks, rear closing disks, and finishing attachments. The ability to quickly and conveniently customize these components independently offers reduced cost of operation and maximum productivity. The disk blades eliminate the need for multiple residue sizing passes into one single pass that reduces surface residue levels by 60-80 percent. The 2730s ability to mix and bury more residue leads to faster soil warming in the spring all while reducing negative impacts of disease and insect pressure.
The ripper shanks accomplish full hardpan fracture across the entire soil profile with their 610-mm (24-in.) spacing in order to create a porous air and water environment for root development. Along with the ripper shanks side-to-side spacing, it also features a 1270-mm (50-in.) fore-aft spacing that improves residue disbursement and contributes to the machines nearly plug-proof performance.
With TruSet or manual adjustment, the operator can set this system to leave a uniformly mounded profile covering each ripper track, or it can be adjusted to obtain a smooth, level surface ideal for minimum preparation for the next springs seedbed. With the walking tandem action, the closing system can follow the contour of the ground and eliminate plugs leading to a more consistent finish.
To achieve optimal field levelness and clod sizing, the operator can control the finishing attachment with in-cab, hydraulic controls. The finishing attachments can be set to constant down pressure, float, or in wet field conditions, rise completely out of the ground. This will insure the seedbed is best prepared for the least amount of pre-plant seedbed tillage passes before planting.
Typical percentage of residue cover remaining from the 2730 Combination Ripper is listed in the table below. These percentages do not consider variables such as the conditions of the residue, speed, and soil type.
TRUSET PROVIDES PRECISE DEPTH AND PRESSURE CONTROL FROM THE CAB ON THE GO
In just six seconds, 2730 Combination Ripper operators can manage their changing field conditions by making on-the-go adjustments for the entire implement from the tractor cab. TruSet enables users to adjust depths for the disks, rippers, and closing disks, and adjust the pressure on the active hydraulic rolling baskets all while covering acres. As conditions change throughout the field, operators running the 2730 with TruSet can quickly and efficiently respond to varying soils, compacted areas, heavier residue, and moisture. Making customized adjustments that respond to these agronomic factors help customers maximize their yield potential.
Adjusting the 2730 Combination Ripper with TruSet can be done up to 200 times faster than the manual adjustment process using single-point depth control and cylinder stops. With short windows to perform tillage work, that critical time savings could be the difference in getting fields worked or not. Operators no longer must sacrifice machine performance by deciding to forgo manual adjustments throughout the field. At the touch of a button, TruSet users can quickly respond to changing conditions such as running deeper over end rows or shallower on hilltops and lighter soils. TruSet users can optimize their 2730 depth adjustments to maximize tractor performance for more efficient fuel use, and lower overall operating costs. TruSet also add precision to tillage operations. The system offers depth accuracy of 2.5 mm (0.1 in.) and more than doubles the number of depth setting increments on the 2730 Combination Ripper. This finite level of control enables 2730 operators to create the ideal soil structure, and evenly size and distribute residue for maximum yield potential.
HYDRAULICALLY ADJUSTABLE 660-MM (26-IN.) DISK BLADES
The 2730's large 660-mm (26-in.) disk blades are hydraulically adjustable and are set in a tandem-type configuration. The disks are available in either individual disk blades or gang-type configuration. The front and rear blades are set at an 18-degree angle on either 460-mm (18-in.) spacing for individual or 280-mm (11-in.) spacing for gang to provide an aggressive disking action. The disks can be adjusted in-cab to be raised completely out of the ground or lowered to a maximum in-ground depth of 203 mm (8 in.). The disk blades operate in constant down-pressure and the optimal operating depth can be set from the cab with TruSet or manually using stop collars on the hydraulic cylinder. The ability to independently adjust the front disks based on varying conditions allows the operator to optimize desired residue sizing and mixing.
The larger disks are designed of high-quality steel and made from a manufacturing process for extended performance provide the following benefits:
Size and bury residue
Level the soil profile
Mix the surface residue
Give full-width tillage up to 200 mm (8 in.) deep
FORE-AFT RIPPER SHANK SPACING DELIVERS IMPROVED RESIDUE FLOW
The 2730 delivers improved residue flow by increasing the overall frame length and underframe clearance along with the fore-aft spacing of the ripper shanks.
The 1270-mm (50-in.) fore-aft spacing maximizes residue disbursement and 953 mm (37.5 in.) of underframe clearance contribute to the machines nearly plug-proof performance. The 2730 features 610-mm (24-in.) side-to-side spacing that accomplishes full hardpan fracture across the entire soil profile to create a porous air and water environment for root development and plant nutrient uptake.
MAINTENANCE-FREE COMPONENTS REDUCE DOWNTIME
Sealed, maintenance-free bearings on the 2730 Combination Ripper results in reduced downtime for the operator.
The greaseless bearings increase productivity by reducing the amount of time needed to service the 2730 before operation and allowing operators to spend more of their valuable time in the field. Independent testing results show the 2730 bearings have 30 percent less contamination than the competition. The maintenance-free bearings have been extensively field tested to stand up in tough conditions providing longer bearing life.
The 2730 employs a high-density polymer liner that allows the bearings to dynamically align the shaft in rough field conditions. The cast-bearing housing also allows for additional protection with the bearing wear guard built-in which leads to increased reliability.
The 2730 features 78 percent fewer grease points than major competitors resulting in less, time-extensive maintenance and improving field productivity by up to 3 ha (7.5 acres) per day.
ACHIEVE DESIRED FIELD FINISH WITH HYDRAULICALLY ADJUSTABLE FINISHING ATTACHMENTS
The 2730 comes equipped with the optional hydraulically adjustable finishing attachments to achieve the desired field finish. The hydraulic rolling baskets can be set to three hydraulically controlled positions from the comfort of the cab. The heavy-duty coil tine harrow is rigid mounted to the frame and depth adjustments are made according to the rear closing disk system. Based on field finish needs, the 2730 less harrow option is also available.
The finishing attachments come in a round-bar, knife-edge, or coil tine configuration and prepares field for a reduced amount of secondary tillage passes before planting. Below are the benefits of each attachment:
Knife edge better option in heavier, wet soils. Recommended basket for rocky soil types.
Round-bar best in dry conditions for clod sizing and firming. Slightly more prone to plugging over the knife edge.
Heavy-duty coil tine harrow preferred finishing attachment in heavy, poorly drained soils.
The rolling baskets can be hydraulically set to three different operating positions based on field conditions:
Down pressure a gauge on the front of the 2730 allows operators to set basket down pressure to ensure constant ground contact. Down pressure also allows for better sizing of slabs, clods, and root balls and will leave a level soil profile.
Float the baskets can be put in the float position using the selective control valve (SCV) on the tractor. This allows the weight of the basket to roll over the ground.
Raised the baskets can be lifted off the ground when encountering a wet area of the field to help eliminate any chance of plugging.
The active hydraulic down-pressure system allows the operator to increase the down pressure on finishing attachments up to 8274 kPa (1200 psi). Adjustments are made with a dial located next to the gauge. Down pressure should be set using the gauge and operated from the cab.
GOTILL MOBILE APPLICATION HELPS WITH IMPLEMENT SETUP AND OPERATION
The GoTill mobile application from John Deere is available on Apple and Android smartphones. This application is a user-friendly system for operators to work their way through the initial recommended 2730 machine setup to optimize machine performance.
GoTill features a maintenance section and a notes section with photo functionality to give operators a premium experience when setting their machines. GoTill is also a great guide to use for settings and adjustments as field conditions differ to document changes made throughout the tillage season.
GoTill is an impactful resource that can be used in addition to the operators manual settings guide that comes standard with all John Deere tillage equipment. GoTill is available on Apple App Store and through Google Play.
