Overview

The 3700 Ridge-Till Rotary Hoe can till an area up to 15" wide on top of ridges or strips. The wheels can be set to your desired operating row spacing. As the Ridge-Till Rotary Hoe breaks up soil crust, young plants are able to emerge, eliminating the need for re-planting.

The Ridge-Till Rotary Hoe also knocks out weeds without the use of herbicides, aerates wet residue before planting, and helps prevent blowing sand. It is designed for ridge-till and strip-till operations.

Features

  • Short- and long-cast arms stagger wheels 7" to facilitate residue flow
  • Wheels spaced on approximately 3 1/4" centers for each gang assembly operating on the ridge or strip
  • Five rotary hoe wheels mounted on bar gang till a 15"-wide area on row spacings of 28", 30", 36", 38", or 40"
  • Spoon-bill wheel teeth are mounted on individual, spring-cushioned cast arms, allowing better soil contact with each wheel
  • Very fuel-efficient, with low horsepower requirements; can be operated at speeds of 8-10 mph
  • Available with a wide array of options to fit the needs of your operation (gauge wheels, helper springs, trash guards, min-till conversion kit, and rear parking stand for folding models; see options tab above for details)
  • Rigid available in 12', 15', 21', 28', 30', and 34' widths
  • 180° flat-folding available in 25', 28', 30', 34', 41', and 46' widths

Great job of lifting and redistributing the residue

"I tested a roller harrow and compared the results to that of the Yetter Rotary Hoe. I like the Rotary Hoe better. It does a great job of lifting and redistributing the residue, but it doesn't break off and level the crowns and standing stalks."
