The Maxi-Harrow’s (Rotary) unique tines link together to form an immensely strong and flexible chain to remove buried residue from the soil and level the ground.
For most applications, one pass with the Maxi-Harrow prepares a seedbed on minimum-till land, even where surface residue is heavy. In wet years, the Maxi-Harrow has been used successfully for seeding wheat, barley, soybeans and many other crops. In dry years, the Maxi-Harrow helps maintain moisture by creating mulch on the soil surface – effectively sealing moisture in.
Adjust the angle of aggression according to what you want to accomplish. When set correctly, it levels the ground and eliminates planter bounce.
30 Degrees: Aerates wet soil, allowing you to seed from 3 to 7 days sooner Levels and breaks up no-till corn stalks
35 Degrees Levels small ridges and produces superior seedbeds Knocks down corn stalks leaving the roots in the ground Fills cracks on the dry land to conserve moisture
40/45 Degrees Levels large ridges and rough fields Incorporates chemicals efficiently – up to 95% of the chemical on the first pass Rejuvenates pastures and hay land Breaks down large clumps
