Hiniker’s shank fractures the soil 6-9" deep while concave discs capture and place the disturbed soil into a berm directly over the tilled strip, creating an ideal seedbed. The raised berms produced with strip-tillage result in a warmer, dryer seedbed, allowing for earlier planting in heavy soils than other systems, notably no-till. In addition, compaction issues are reduced with the strip-till method as a result of fewer trips across the field.

Season-long fertilizer availability is also enhanced when fertilizer is placed in the slot while strip-tilling. Also, residue remains between the rows where it can aid in moisture conservation, erosion control and weed suppression.

Strip-till practices may also benefit crops growing under irrigation. The increased water infiltration and deeper root development that are a result of strip-tillage mean irrigation requirements can often be reduced while still maintaining yields.

The Right EQUIPMENT, The Right TIME
 Strip-Till Savings

With strip-tillage, input costs may be significantly reduced while maintaining and often improving yields.
  • Use less fertilizer than broadcast applications*
  • Minimize fuel costs with fewer trips across the field
  • Reduced trips also means time savings
*According to university research data
 Hydraulic Lift/Hitch System

Combination hydraulic lift/hitch system provides plenty of ground clearance when turning and transporting. This system lifts only the implement and not the load of fertilizer which is easily carried on the cart frame. This close coupled design results in a machine which is easily transported, turned and backed up when necessary.

Hiniker strip-till equipment is available in both 3-point mounted and pull-type configurations. 3-point units are available in 6, 8 and 12 row sizes. Pull-type units, complete with granular or liquid fertilizer cart/lift assist systems, are available in 6, 8, 12 and 16 row configurations.

Complete pull-type 6000ST systems available with combination lift assist/fertilizer carts, including either stainless steel granular or 1000 gallon liquid fertilizer systems. Choice of 22 or 30 inch row spacings on 15, 20, 30, or 40 ft. toolbars.
