JOHN DEERE - 2230FH Back
JOHN DEERE 2230FHFLOATING HITCH FIELD CULTIVATOR
NOT JUST LEVEL.THE NEXT LEVEL.
Picture the most level seedbed youll ever create. The John Deere 2230LL Levellift Field Cultivator and the 2230FH Floating Hitch Field Cultivators deliver the next level of performance. The 2230FH Floating Hitch Field Cultivator works independently from the tractor and follows the contour of the ground so the implement remains level. The 2230LL Level-lift Field Cultivator allows the front of the implement to come out of the ground and the rear of the implement to go deeper since the tractor impacts depth.
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 (25.5 ft to 69.5 ft). 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.
152-mm (6-in.) shank spacing base equipment on the 2230LL and 2230FH. Additional options for implement customization include:
229-mm (9-in.) shank spacing
114-mm (4.5-in.) s-tine spacing (on select configurations)
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.
229-mm (9-in.) sweeps and 178-mm (7-in.) sweeps can both be utilized on a machine with shanks on 152-mm (6-in.) spacing. The decision between the two is dependent on soil type, operating speed, and the agronomic goal of the tillage pass.
229-mm (9-in.) sweeps When weed management or weed removal is an important part of the tillage pass, a 229-mm (9-in.) sweep provides more of a cutting edge and can catch weeds that may bend around the wings of the 178-mm (7-in.) sweep.
178-mm (7-in.) sweeps These sweeps provide enough wing width to maintain full-width tillage, but with less draft load than a 229-mm (9-in.) sweep. Less draft results in the shank maintaining a more consistent depth, especially at higher speeds, and less of a horsepower draw on the tractor. This will be most evident in harder, heavier soil types.
114-mm (4.5-in.) sweeps These sweeps are only available on S-tine configurations.
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
Perma-Loc utilizes a self-tightening ratcheting system for easy installation. Indentations formed in the sweep stem provide the spring clip with a locking surface. The adapter edge, sweep, and spring all act together to tightly lock the sweep to the shank. The operator simply pushes the sweep on by hand to the first notch (audible click). As the resistance is increased (ground engagement), the sweep progressively wedges tighter. The mounting design minimizes lost sweeps and wear on adapter. Utilizing the removal tool to depress the spring through the stem access opening and a tap with a hammer easily releases the sweep from the adapter and spring.
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.
TRUSET SIDE-TO-SIDE FEATURE PROVIDES INDIVIDUAL SECTION LEVELING ON 2230FH FLOATING HITCH FIELD CULTIVATOR
2230FH Floating Hitch Field Cultivator operators have the option to enhance the TruSet Tillage system with individual section leveling functionality. TruSet Side-to-Side is available as a field-installed option that can be ordered with the 2230FH or through aftermarket parts. The base TruSet Tillage system can also be upgraded to TruSet Side-to-Side on the 2230FH with a conversion kit.
TILLAGE DOCUMENTATION AND PRESCRIPTION FUNCTIONALITY INCLUDED WITH TRUSET TILLAGE
With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, 2230 Field Cultivator 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 field cultivator 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 field cultivator 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.
ACTIVE-HYDRAULIC CASTERING WHEELS FACILITATE EXCELLENT TURNING
Front-mounted active-hydraulic castering depth-control wheels come standard on the 2230FH Floating Hitch Field Cultivators centerframe and wings. These active-hydraulic castering wheels rotate a full 360 degrees and provide good stability at the front of the implement and facilitate excellent turning, reducing tire scuffing.
Working together with John Deeres floating hitch, the active-hydraulic castering wheels help ensure level operation for the 2230FH as the implement is free to follow the contour of the terrain. This frame flexibility over rolling terrain provides more uniform depth integrity fore to aft for:
Consistent sweep depth
Thorough seedbed preparation through the entire width and length of the implement
Consistent chemical placement and mixing
REGULAR- AND LOW-TRANSPORT CONFIGURATION AVAILABLE FOR 2230FH
Low power lines and bridges can be a concern when transporting equipment. The 2230 Field Cultivator lineup includes regular- and low-transport configurations as a solution for transportation concerns.
The 12.95-m (42.5-ft) 2230FH folds like a five-section implement, but operates like a three-section implement. A small wing is added to these implements. This allows them to have an extra fold to achieve the tight and narrow transport dimensions. When the implement is unfolded for operation, the small, outer-wings lock rigid to allow for three-section operation.
Another advantage of the low-transport models is operation in uneven terrain. The low-transport models allow for the rigid wing to follow the contour of the ground.
The regular-transport model features an 18.44-m (60.5-ft) working width on a 4.6-m (15-ft) mainframe that allows for a lower transport height compared to the other 18.44-m (60.5-ft) configuration.
