Model 4436 shown


The Krause 4400 Series Flex-Wing Packers offer more time and money-saving features than any other packers on the market. Krause packers pulverize clods, press down stones and eliminate air pockets in the soil, resulting in a superior seedbed to give your crop an extra edge right from the start.

Krause's innovative use of massive 6 5/8" roller axles eliminates the need for troublesome middle gang bearings, and eliminates the "skip" in the tilled soil due to the space taken by the middle gang bearing. The 6 5/8" diameter roller axles are up to twice as strong as the 4" diameter axles used on some competitive models.

Transport wheels clear the soil by several inches eliminating wheel tracks in the seedbed. Front and rear gangs may be set to overlap, so there are no unworked strips, even when flexing over hills or terraces.

The 4400 Series Packers are offered in working widths from 20' to 36' to meet the needs of today's large farming operations. All Krause Packers feature "cross-fold" design for convenient road transport.
Graphic:Telescoping Tongue Telescoping Tongue
Models 4428 - 4436 (28' through 36') have an extendable tongue to enable shorter turns when the unit is being pulled behind another tillage implement. The telescoping tongue increases tongue length from 13'4" to 18'4". The tongue may be retracted for road transport or more convenient storage.
Graphic:Super Seal Bearings Super Seal Bearings
Krause "SuperSeal" regreaseable bearings are used on 4400 gang axles to ensure long life and rugged durability. Since there are no middle gang bearings, the "SuperSeal" bearings can be easily removed from the gang for servicing, without disassembling the gangs, a time and labor saving feature you'll be sure to appreciate.
Graphic:V-Pack Wheels V-Pack Wheels
4400 VP Series Packer feature 22 3/8" diameter by 1 3/4" wide V-pack wheels on 7 1/4" spacing. The "V" shaped packer wheels create a "corrugated" field finish to fight wind erosion in sandy soils. Tie rods on the VP Series are 1 1/2" diameter alloy and utilize "Superseal" Bearings.
