John Deere VT17 Series vertical tillage tool

The new John Deere Frontier VT17 Series Vertical Tillage Tool is designed for east adjustment and custom-configuration to best fit the level of residue management and tillage needed.

The VT17 Series offers fore and aft leveling adjustments that can be quickly made using a simple crank system. Gang angles can be adjusted from zero to 12 degrees for less or more aggressive tillage. Operators can also fine-tune the machine’s operating depth from zero to three inches using a pin-and-clip adjustment.

The VT17 comes with the choice of 20-inch straight or 22-inch concave blades. Each blade type is fluted for improved residue flow, sizing, and mixing, even with aggressive gang settings. The machine’s spring-adjustable rolling baskets run perpendicular to the blade direction to break up clods and improve field leveling and seedbed uniformity.

Tandem dual wheels, standard equipment on all VT17 models, are mounted on a tubular carriage frame that’s hydraulically raised and lowered.

Four sizes of VT17 Series Vertical Tillage Tools are available with working widths ranging from 10 to 15 feet. Tractor horsepower requirements range from 85 to 150 horsepower depending on the width of the model it’s paired with.
