John Deere Introduces 2720 Disk Ripper for 2013 Tillage Season

Mon, 3 Dec 2012 11:02:06 EST

New primary tillage tool comes in four widths with heavy-duty shanks and more options

OLATHE, Kansas – John Deere introduces the 2720 Disk Ripper, an all-new, heavy-duty primary tillage tool designed to handle a wide variety of tillage tasks. This new machine sizes and buries crop residue, penetrates and shatters compacted soils, and mixes and levels the soil surface with greater efficiency.

The unique features of the 2720 Disk Ripper include a new gang design with heavier C-springs, thicker gang tubes and the largest gang bolt in the industry. The 2720 Disk Ripper uses a combination disk-ripper-disk configuration to cut, size and bury residue, penetrate the soil, and level the field, all in one pass.

The front disk gang angle is fixed at 18 degrees for maximum residue cutting and soil leveling from the ripper and back disk. The 2720 also features the Laser Rip II points in a variety of sizes to shatter the hardpan to a depth of 8 to 15 inches. The rear disk gang can be set at 14 or 16 degrees, depending on residue and soil conditions, and the optional three-position hydraulic rolling basket breaks up root balls and clods to leave a smoother, more uniform soil surface.

According to Jake Stien, product manager at John Deere Des Moines Works, the 2720 Disk Ripper is the ideal primary tillage tool for low-, medium- and high-residue conditions where producers are looking to accomplish a variety of tillage goals all in one pass.

"The 2720 Disk Ripper buries residue and shatters compaction while being built much heavier to provide years of maintenance-free performance in the most adverse field conditions," Stien says. "We've increased the weight per blade, improved residue flow and performance in wet conditions; added new truck-style implement tire options for better reliability and stability at faster operating speeds; and added sealed maintenance-free gang bearings to eliminate daily greasing."

The 2720 Disk Ripper is available in four widths: 12 ft. 6 in., 17 ft. 6 in., 22 ft. 6 in., and 27 ft. 6 in., depending on the size that best fits a producer's farm size and tractor horsepower. The 22 ft. 6 in. and 27 ft. 6 in. models have three folding sections to provide easier transport from field to field.

"As crop residue increases with high-yielding crops, managing residue and compaction becomes more challenging for producers," Stien explains. "The 2720 Disk Ripper helps them manage the most difficult residue conditions, in addition to providing improved residue flow and soil leveling with industry-exclusive hydraulic rolling baskets. No matter the field conditions, the 2720 is going to deliver the performance and productivity to simplify customers' fall tillage operations."
