In keeping with its retutation as a leader and innovator in the agricultural industry, Sukup Manufacturing Company introduces its newest product...the VPS™3000 Variable Profile Subsoiler™.

The VPS™3000 is designed for deep tillage to break up hardpan to allow water to reach the root zone. The special shank angle and design prevent clodding and leave the maximum amount of residue on the surface.

VPS™ Shanks  
Patented point and wing system provides maximum soil density reduction with minimum siol surface distubance.

The wing is removable for inter-row subsoiling in standing crops.

Heavier points have a longer, wider wing area for better soil lifting, and are held on with two roll pins.

The shin guard upper retainer is reversible for longer life.

Parabolic Rippers

Orthman's Parabolic Rippers can perform three different tasks: extensive subsoil fracturing, inter-row ripping or a combination of both.

A variety of tillage points are available to maximize versatility. Choose to inter-row rip in standing crop, loosen hard packed fields or fracture the subsoil with minimum top soil disturbance by just changing the tillage points. The Parabolic Rippers feature a full 32" trash clearance and 20" coulters for trouble-free operation in heavy residue and are completely adjustable to any row width.

 

Interrow Rippers

The Interrow Ripper can work a standing crop to promote aeration and root growth. It provides an economical single bar tool carrier that enables you to rip (up to 10" deep) between the rows of a growing crop. It shatters compaction caused by tractor traffic while improving water retention.

 

Universal Rippers

The Universal Ripper can sub-soil and inter-row rip using the same implement. It combines heavy-duty features to work in depths of 8" to 18". Top soil disturbance is minimized while shattering subsoil compaction for enhanced root growth and increased water retention.

The universal Ripper is adjustable and fully adaptable to any row width. A variety of tillage points are available to maximize the versatility. The Universal Ripper comes standard with 20" coulters for heavy residue conditions .


Description
V957 DDR Ripper The V957 DDR Disk Ripper has been engineered to work in heavy residue conditions. The deep penetration will fracture the hard pan promoting deeper root penetration and better yields, resulting in more money in your pocket. Compaction will affect your crop growth and reduce yield. Use a V957 DDR to decrease soil erosion, increase the root zone for better root penetration, fracturing soil for better moisture intake.
