Tougher than the Toughest Residue. The 2430 Chisel Plow excels in tough ground with heavy residue. It boasts both a 4x4-inch steel frame and tandem Walk-Over wheels, but with new levels of control.

The 2430 features a new rear hitch that adjusts side-to-side for easier hookups. In addition, it offers both the knife-edge hydraulic rolling basket with internal scraper or 240 Coil-Tine Chisel Plow Harrow rear attachment options. The 240 Coil-Tine Chisel Plow Harrow leaves an outstanding soil profile finish and handles tough residue. The 2430 also has a wide variety of sweeps, chisels and twisted shovels available for you to maintain surface residue and ground profile under varying weather and soil conditions.

With TruSet technology, adjust shank depth and rolling basket down-pressure on-the-go, from the cab.

TruPosition standards help eliminate side-to-side movement and provide better control of the soil profile for improved leveling. Or choose 650-lb. (295-kg) spring-reset or 1,250-lb. (567-kg) Tru-Depth standards.

The knife-edge baskets shrug off rocks, break up clods and leave a smooth, level seedbed. The internal basket scraper allows for a uniform field finish in sticky conditions reducing plugging.

Radial tires reduce tire failures both in the field and in transport, meaning you can spend more time in the field and less time changing and repairing tires. With a wider tire plate and lower inflation pressure, radial tires have a larger contact area with the ground to help minimize compaction.

The 2430 Chisel Plow is designed for precise, accurate depth control. Precise depth control is very important for conservation of moisture, fertilizer placement, and soil management. Soil layers of differing soil type vary across farms and even across fields. The ability to adjust for these conditions is extremely important to producers today. TruSet and single-point depth control both come as standard equipment. Both provide accurate depth control to best utilize available tractor horsepower.

With TruSet, these adjustments can be done on the move, increasing productivity and making the day go easier for operators. TruSet provides accurate and precise depth control by the use of individual wheel sensors and electronic circuitry to perform tasks of leveling and depth measurements unprecedented in the industry until now. Accurate depth is displayed to the nearest 2.5 mm (1/10 in.).

The floating hitch, frame strength of the Tube-Thru-Tube manufacturing, and the wheel package placement allow the 2430 to offer unmatched consistency of depth (front-to-back and side-to-side). Fuel can be saved, soil can be mixed and shattered, and accurate depth can be maintained. This represents true soil management for the producer.

TruSet Side-to-Side gives producers the same level of individual section control that was available with AccuDepth hydraulics. However, there are differences in how the two systems are hydraulically plumbed. The AccuDepth hydraulics required a correction valve on every frame section since the hydraulics were plumbed in parallel. The TruSet system is plumbed into a single-point (series) system.

The series hydraulics give producers the option of controlling depth with just the single-point depth control valve or individually controlling each frame section with a correction valve mounted at the base of each depth control cylinder on the wings. The individual section control with TruSet Side-to-Side is an upgrade to the base TruSet Tillage system.

TruSet Side-to-Side is controlled by five sensors compared to one sensor with the base TruSet Tillage system. With the five-sensor control, the implement can make depth control adjustments via sensor feedback on the wings. TruSet Side-to-Side eliminates the need to rephase the depth control cylinders after several rounds in the field. However, it does require another step when calibrating.

With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature will give producers the ability to capture and analyze the pass for additional coverage of the crop production cycle. Prescription functionality provides producers the capability to ensure their tillage operations are executed correctly, optimizing their investment in preparing for the next crop.

Operators can document data for the depth of their sweeps along with rolling basket down pressure. By creating an as-applied map based off of global positioning system (GPS) data for the job performed by each functional area on the implement, TruSet enables producers to document their tillage passes then later review and analyze the data for future agronomic decisions.

Additionally, the Prescription Creator by Agrian company, a connected partner tool through the John Deere Operations Center, enables producers to create prescriptions for each functional area. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that will command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.

The knife-edge rolling basket for the 2430 Chisel Plow is made of hardened steel and handles rock strikes and adverse conditions well. The ease of down pressure adjustability allows the tool to adapt to changing field conditions. The internal basket scraper allows for a uniform field finish in wet conditions because baskets will not need to be raised out of the ground to avoid plugging; they can remain in the ground 100 percent of the time.

The John Deere 2430 Chisel Plow offers an active hydraulic rolling basket that gives the operator wide-ranging adjustability for a variety of conditions. The drawbars and rolling basket on the rear harrow are built with strength in mind for the demanding fall conditions. The system was designed to have the ability to run the rolling baskets in three different positions to finish and level the soil:
Raised: Allows the operator to raise the rolling baskets in harsh, muddy conditions.
Float: Allows the operator to float the rolling baskets to lightly fluff soil.
Apply down pressure: Allows the operator to adjust the basket pressure to provide consistent contact with the ground, provides a firm seedbed, and shatters root balls.

Operators are requiring faster field working speeds, larger implements, and tractors because of a dramatic increase in farm size. The market is asking for and receiving tractors with more torque, more weight, and more horsepower. Accommodating 600 engine horsepower tractors requires more from implement frame and hitch components, including thicker frame tubes, additional diagonal bracing, and frame gussets.

The frame is constructed of continuous 102-mm x 102-mm (4-in. x 4-in.) cross members inserted through 51-mm x 152-mm (2-in. x 6-in.), 76-mm x 152-mm (3-in. x 6-in.), and 102-mm x 152-mm (4-in. x 6-in.) fore-aft members. The mainframe boasts a structure made up of 102-mm x 152-mm (4-in. x 6-in.) fore-aft tubes. The large frame member sizes, joint welds, and wheel module placement adds to the structural integrity, providing a stable front-to-rear and side-to-side operation.

Walk-Over wheels provide a consistent working depth in uneven ground for level seedbeds and complete weed control. The staggered wheel design provides extra room for residue flow, obstacles, and transport stability.

A wide variety of tools such as sweeps, chisels, and twisted shovels are available for the operator to maintain surface residue and ground profile under varying weather and soil conditions.
