Time is short and moisture is limited. Today’s farming operations require tillage systems that can cover hundreds of acres while carefully managing residue conditions. The 3-, 5-, and 7-section Plains Plows from Great Plains are engineered to withstand the punishment of demanding field conditions while effectively managing surface residue to help retain moisture and prevent erosion.
Plains Plow takes field efficiency to the next level with optional hard pan ripper shanks, which allow for multiple field operations in a single pass. With 48" sweeps, this undercutter tillage implement uses narrower-than-standard V-blades that provide consistent depth in rolling conditions and better cleaning in sticky soils. Hard-faced for long life, treader wheels are spaced 7" apart. This spacing is ideal for breaking up clods, uprooting weeds, and preparing a seedbed.
Select models are available with optional 250-pound wing weights. - Less

Features a full 20" blade with a yoke-mounted, 4-bolt hub assembly.
Narrower-than-standard V-Blades provide consistent depth in rolling conditions and clean better in "sticky" soils.
21" TREADER WHEEL
7" spacing is ideal for breaking clods, uprooting weeds, and preparing a seedbed. Hard faced for long life.
EXCLUSIVE MAINTENANCE-FREE BEARINGS
These 360° self-aligning bearings are never sideloaded. A six-lip seal on each side locks in grease and prevents contamination, which reduces maintenance time and extends the life of the bearings.
Walking tandems on all center frames help keep the depth consistent when going over undulations.
TWO SWEEPS PER SECTION
Two sweeps per section effectively follow undulations and feature 4" of blade overlap. Leading coulter cuts residue for better trash flow around the V-blade.
PILOT-OPERATED CHECK VALVE
Lock the cylinders in place and provide consistent depth control across the entire width of the unit.
HIGH & LOW LIFT BLADE CHOICES
Narrower, 4½"-wide low-lift blades (top) work at shallower depths, require less horsepower, and conserve valuable soil moisture by reducing the tillage depth needed for effective weed control. The low-lift design also leaves the field smoother than traditional 72" configurations and, in many cases, allows planting directly behind the Plains Plow. The 6½"-wide blades (bottom) are for working deeper. This high-lift design provides more soil separation from weed roots.
GREATER UNDERFRAME CLEARANCE
Thirty-inches of vertical underframe clearance and pusher rockshaft axles maximize shank clearance when operating in the field.
EFFECTIVE FRAME DESIGN
Heavy-duty I-beam hitch pulls from a true center section to provide unmatched strength that eliminates the center buckling often seen in hinged center-frame designs. Dual-blade wing sections reduce buckling and stay in the ground better than single 72" blade designs.
