Versatility, durability and precision control – these terms accurately describe the new 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage tools available from John Deere. Building on the solid performance of the 2620 Series tillage tools, John Deere brings greater control to light, medium and heavy-duty tillage operations.
The new 2630 Series implement lineup includes four distinct models: 2630 Disk, 2633 Disk, 2635 Disk and 2633 Vertical Tillage implement, each providing different levels of soil penetration, residue mixing and seedbed preparation. According to Jarred Karnei, John Deere product marketing manager, the new 2630 Series tillage tools allow customers to match the right tool to their field and soil conditions while improving tillage performance with the latest in on-the-go precision control, thanks to TruSet™ Technology.
“TruSet gives operators fingertip control in making tillage depth and pressure adjustments while allowing them to accurately map and store depth, speed and down pressure information,” explains Karnei. “This gives them even more data when analyzing field and crop information that can be used for making better agronomic decisions.”
TruSet is included in base equipment on all 2630 Series implements, making depth and pressure adjustments quick and easy from the cab. Instead of up to 10 minutes needed for manual adjustments, operators can make precise changes to down pressure and depth in less than six seconds, with 0.1-inch depth adjustment and 0-900 psi down pressure on rolling baskets.
In addition, customers can select from either mechanical stabilizer wheels or TruSet hydraulic stabilizer wheels as an option to maintain more consistent depth control on rolling ground.
Other important features of the 2630 Series tillage tools include new extended-life bearings that provide greater durability and reliability with the ability to customize bearing maintenance based on soil and tillage conditions. For heavy, wet or rocky soils, a knife-edge hydraulic rolling basket option is now available, in addition to traditional round-bar and flat-bar baskets.
The new 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage implements come with radial tires on the mainframes (base equipment) and are optional on wing frames and stabilizers. Radial tires offer longer wear life while minimizing compaction due to their wider footprint and lower inflation pressures.
The 2630 Series models include the 2630 Disk, available in different working widths from 20 feet 9 inches to 49 feet 3 inches for lighter soils and seedbed preparation; the versatile 2633 Disk for either primary or secondary tillage up to 6 inches deep in 10 different widths and tillage configurations; and the primary tillage workhorse 2635 Disk that cuts 8 inches deep for maximum tillage and crop residue incorporation, available in five working widths and configurations.
“With field operating speeds up to 7 mph, the new 2630 Series tillage tools are designed to easily handle a wide variety of soil and residue conditions with unprecedented control, while providing years of reliable performance,” says Karnei.
