UNVERFERTH - 2015LT Back
UNVERFERTH RAPTOR 2015LT STRIP TILLAGE TOOL
With less surface soil disturbance, strip tillage will retain organic material, reduce erosion and conserve fuel by only tilling the strip that is planted into. The Unverferth Raptor strip tillage tool was built for professional growers looking to take advantage of the benefits that strip tillage can provide. Pull-type models feature a front-folding toolbar and vertical-folding row units for narrow transport and compact storage. When applying fertilizer, the optional dry or liquid fertilizer systems are integrated into the rear of the machine for the best row unit visibility and easy filling.
The ground-breaking TerrainPro row unit allows each row to travel up and down independently for the most consistent row-to-row tillage depth and fertilizer placement. The Raptor strip-tillage tool is the first all-in-one solution for banding fertilizer and features greater operator visibility, easy filling when equipped with fertilizer and a row unit with unmatched performance.
The pull-type Unverferth Raptor strip tillage tool can be ordered with an integrated dry or liquid fertilizer system for banding fertilizer directly in the row during the strip tillage pass. Pull-type toolbars can also be ordered to just perform a strip-tillage pass along with 3-point mounted toolbars.
The Unverferth Raptor strip tillage tool can be ordered as a pull-type or 3-point mounted toolbar. ST models feature a pull-type designed toolbar without a fertilizer application system while MT models feature a 3-point mounted toolbar.
Pull-type models are available as a 12-row or 16-row machine with 30 row spacing. The heavy-duty 7 x 7 toolbar provides reliable operation and features 15 of above and 5 of below horizontal flex to follow uneven terrain.
The standard front-folding toolbar design and vertical folding row units provide a narrow transport width of 13 6 and compact storage. A hydraulic jack, CAT 4 bull-pull hitch, safety chain and transport lighting contribute to easier storage and safer road travel. Wing gauge wheels with 9.5L-15 stubble guard tires on the toolbar provide added stability through the field.
Pull-type ST models without a fertilizer system feature 380/90x46 single wheels and tires on the undercarriage for greater flotation and added stability.
3-point models are available as a 6-, 8- or 12-row machine with 30, 36 or 38 row spacing and heavy-duty, double wall frame with a 6 x 6 rear mounting bar for maximum durability. The 3-point hitch connection provides a compact design for greater maneuverability and toolbar stabilizer wheels provide added stability and tool-free adjustment for quick and convenient depth control.
3-point models can be equipped with an optional flex frame kit for 12-row 36 and 38 folding models which allow the wings to float 15 above and 5 below horizontally to follow uneven terrain.
Additional options for 3-point mounted toolbars include a rear hitch that can tow up to 14,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight with 1,000 lbs. of tongue weight and optional liquid or dry fertilizer shank attachments.
The Raptor strip tillage tool features the innovative TerrainPro row unit that has been developed and tested in a wide range of soil types for consistent tillage depth and accurate fertilizer placement, when equipped.
Each row unit features independent parallel linkage, which allows it to free-float 7 upward and 4 downward to ensure that each shank runs at the same depth for consistent tillage and fertilizer placement.
The 20 diameter lead coulter features 1,500 lbs. of down pressure to slice through the toughest soils and 6-bolt greaseable hubs with 5 layers of seal protection for long-term, trouble-free use. Free-floating row cleaners follow ground contours independently from the lead coulter and clear residue from the strip. The curved finger design prevents trash from wrapping and width adjustment allows the operator to adapt the row cleaner to varying conditions. Each row cleaner utilizes 4-bolt hubs with triple-lip seals and tapered roller bearings. Standard add-on weights allow the operator to increase down pressure if needed.
DEPTH CONTROL WHEEL
Independent row unit depth is maintained by the crowfoot depth control wheel that runs between the row cleaners and the shank for consistent shank depth from row to row.
The 16 diameter crowfoot design prevents mud, rocks and other debris from building up, allowing the operator to run in varying conditions.
An optional rock guard crowfoot depth control wheel with reinforcing rings adds strength in rocky soils. An optional heavy-duty solid steel depth control wheel with a standard scraper is available in-lieu of the standard crowfoot wheel for added flotation in looser soils.
STRIP TILL SHANK
The shank features tool-free depth adjustment from 4 to 12 deep and a convenient depth gauge which allows the operator to quickly and easily adjust each shank. The replaceable 2 cast point and 1 wide integrated wear bar provides long-term, trouble-free use. Replaceable shank wear plates are standard to protect the shank from abrasive soil.
The Raptor strip till tool is available with spring-cushioned auto-reset trip mechanism (Model 2030) with 2,000 lbs. of point load pressure or shear-bolt protected shank (Model 2015) with 5,000 lbs. of shear pressure. The Model 2030 is ideal for soil conditions with rocks while the 2015 model is ideal for use in rock-free soils.
The 18 notched concave closing coulters on each side of the shank keeps the soil in the path of the trailing basket. Each coulter floats independently from the other to keep constant ground contact through uneven terrain and utilize 6-bolt hubs with triple-lip seals for long-term, trouble-free use.
Tool-free width and angle adjustment allows the operator to easily change the width of the strip and height of the berm. The tool-free adjustable spring down pressure and angle adjustment of the closing coulters provide quick and easy on the go strip-till enhancements.
The trailing 14 diameter crowfoot conditioning baskets break up clods, condition the berm and feature a unique design to prevent plugging with mud, rocks or other debris. Each crowfoot conditioning basket rolls independently from the other and features tool-free adjustable down pressure.
An optional trailing 15 conventional Rolling Harrow basket enhances tillage action or an optional 15 rubber press for added soil firming is available in-lieu of the standard crowfoot conditioning basket.
IDEAL PLANTING STRIPS
The TerrainPro row unit leaves a perfectly conditioned strip that warms quickly in the spring, reduces soil compaction and improves overall soil health.
BANDING FOR GREATER YIELD
DT models feature a dry fertilizer system and LT models feature a liquid fertilizer system for pull-type Raptor models. Unverferth offers an all-in-one solution from one manufacturer so you can quickly and accurately band your fertilizer in the row during the strip tillage pass.
The fertilizer tank and undercarriage are located behind the toolbar for better row unit visibility from the tractor cab and easier filling from behind the machine. The undercarriage on both fertilizer systems features 380/90 x 46 dual wheels and tires maximize flotation and provide a stable ride during road transport.
Both fertilizer systems feature a standard Raven RCM ISOBUS controller which allows the operator to control the rate from the tractor's virtual terminal screen. This system integrates with section control and pre-loaded field prescriptions.
The DT models feature a dry fertilizer system for pull-type Raptors and feature dual tanks for applying 1 or 2 products with a variable rate. The dual 6-ton custom-molded poly tanks provide a total capacity of 12 tons of dry product.
The tanks feature weather-tight lids that protect the fertilizer and an ergonomic ladder and viewing platform provide convenient access to the top of the tanks. 2-section control for each product and standard blockage monitors alert the operator on the ISOBUS screen when a row unit is blocked. The application system is powered by a hydraulically operated blower fan that feeds the 2 dry fertilizer plumbing. Each 6-ton tank is standard with a 4-point load cell scale system that integrates with the ISOBUS controller for accurately tracking dry fertilizer applied and provides convenient rate calibration.
The LT models feature a liquid fertilizer system for pull-type Raptors and feature a custom-molded 1200-gallon T-shaped tank that holds the last 50 gallons of liquid in the sump to always maintain a primed pump, even on side hills.
An Ace 750 PWM hydraulic pump is standard with 4-section control that is integrated into the ISOBUS rate controller to view and control the rate and integrates with section control and pre-loaded field prescriptions. Standard flow ball monitors allow the operator to easily monitor the flow to each row. For quick and easy filling, a standard 3 quick fill is located at the rear of the tank with a tank volume indicator.
