Spading is more than just turning the soil

More than 60 years of experience with spading machines is something Imants can look back on. From that experience we learned spading is more than just turning soil. Much more, in fact. Spading means mixing organic material with the living topsoil, incorporating crop residues and creating a seedbed, mixing green manure so it can be broken down into nutrients for the next crop. In short, both above the ground and in the soil you will achieve an even, homogeneous and well aerated soil after tillage with Imants spading machines. The true one pass tillage tool.

Imants rotary spading machines work the soil by means of spades that are attached to the spade via a spade bracket. On the 27 series, 4 spade brackets form a wreath. The number of whorls on the spit varies according to the working width. The 27 series spading axle is without scrapers.  Depending on what you need on your farm Imants can advise the right spading machine.

Did you know that Imants also manufactures spading machines that can work superficially (from 8 cm or 3 inch working depth) but also very deep (up to 135 cm or 53 inch working depth)? 

The SX-spadingblade

For use on all soil types except wet clay.

The spade blades of the 27 series are easy to replace.

The 27 series spading machines are equipped with a cam clutch on the PTO shaft. This provides protection for the driveline.

Depending on the model, the SX series has a minimum working depth of 15 cm (6”), with a maximum of approximately 45 cm (18”). In specific circumstances, working depths up to 55 cm (22”) are possible. Ask your Imants advisor for more information. The blades loosen the soil over the full working width and mix manure, green manure or plant residues through the most biologically active part of the soil.


Driven power harrow

The Imants 27 series spading machines can be equipped with a driven power harrow. This roller levels, crumbles and works in crop residues. The result is an ideal seedbed. It is the ideal roller for sandy and loamy soils.
