Baskets do a wonderful job of smoothing and leveling behind your tillage tools. Turns a disk into a one pass preplant tillage machine. We run these behind a JD 630 disk on our own farms. Actually like this better than the VT's. Moves more dirt when desired. Leaves a nice level seed bed. And much, much less expensive than a VT.
With active hydraulics, cylinders, and valve, we can add as much down pressure as desired. Or we can run in float for lighter pressure. Hydraulic cylinders allows us to lift baskets up out of the way when not needed.
We offer the components for those that wish to save some money and build their own baskets. Or we can build and sell the complete attachment. Call David for more info 785-799-4322.
