To mix or not to mix?

Imants offers you the solution for any tillage issue. Deep or shallow, active or passive, intensive or extensive, mixing or non mixing. combining several passes is also high on our priority list to save fuel, time and money. 

With over 60 years of spading experience, Imants knows that troublesome layers are a challenge for everyone. Removing the hard pans restores capillary action to the soil, allows deeper rooting to occur and drains excess water to deeper layers. The result is a better yield. 

As tillage specialists, we want to offer an answer to all kinds of challenges, so we build different machines. 

To loosen the soil in the furrow and remove hard pans, Imants has developed the Culter deep ripper. This versatile machine can be used alone or in combination with other machines. 

Ripping with a Culter subsoiler

The Culter works to a maximum depth of 60 cm (2’). The great advantage is that the rippers can be adjusted in width and the wear parts can be easily replaced. The combination of the unique shape and accurate spacing ensures good soil loosening without mixing. All this is done with low power requirements and low fuel consumption. The ripper tines ensure that the soil is lifted (and thus broken up) evenly without causing unwanted soil displacement. The unique shape of the subsoiler tine also ensures that crop residues do not wrap. Result after treatment? An even level soil profile across the entire working width with many broken aggregates. 

Thanks to the various options available, this machine can also be adapted to your wishes.

Whether you want to work just with the Culter or in combination with other machines such as: 

  • A spading machine
  • A power harrow
  • A disc
  • A roller
  • A seeder
  • A planter
  • ...

Everything is possible with the Imants Culter.
