The Industry Standard in Vertical Tillage
True vertical tillage has become the go-to method for yield-boosting seedbed preparation. Turbo-Max is the industry leader in vertical tillage tools, especially for min-tillers who want to size and anchor residue without aggressively working the ground in the fall. It vertically cuts residue and fractures the soil to create a smooth seedbed for uniform seed emergence. Because Turbo-Max is a true vertical tillage implement, it does not create compaction layers, giving roots the freedom to reach nutrients and moisture.
Now with exciting new updates, the industry-leading Turbo-Max offers even greater agronomic benefits and operator convenience. Introduced in fall 2019, the NEW Implement Command™ system allows producers to control, adjust, and monitor their Turbo-Max from the comfort of their tractor cab. Implement Command is available on new 18'-35' Turbo-Max models.
New for 2020, Turbo-Max also features hydraulic fore/aft leveling and hydraulic rear reels as a standard feature on select sizes. Hydraulic fore/aft leveling allows the operator to easily adjust and level the implement from the cab without any wrenches or tools needed. It also allows the machine to be tilted forward for road transport or to quickly change between tractors. Hydraulic rear reels allow the operator to control the reel down pressure from the cab to adjust for different field conditions. This allows the rear attachment to be lifted in less-than-ideal field conditions, saving time spent cleaning mud out of the reel.
With working widths ranging from 8.5 to 48, operations of all sizes have access to the benefits of vertical tillage. Each Turbo-Max is designed with two rows of coulter gangs, with blades spaced 7½" apart. The rear gangs offset the front gangs, splitting the blade spacing to 3¾" for superior residue sizing in one pass. This allows the Turbo-Max to provide true vertical cutting without the shearing caused by concave blades.
The gangs can be angled from 0 to 6 degrees, making the Turbo-Max a multi-seasonal tillage tool. In the fall, angle the gangs from 3-6 degrees to cover more residue, or keep the gangs straight to prepare the perfect seedbed in the spring. Hydraulically-adjustable gangs are offered as a standard feature on the larger models, and as an option on the smaller sizes.
Turbo-Max helps producers accomplish more with attachments like the Turbo-Seeder™, allowing producers to till the soil and plant cover crops – all in one pass. The Turbo-Seeder cover crop attachment is available for models ranging from 12' to 40'. - Less

Take command of your adjustment and monitoring needs right at your fingertips with the new Implement Command System option for select models of Turbo-Max! This system allows you to set, adjust, and monitor your Turbo-Max right on your ISO-compatible monitor in your tractor cab.
HYDRAULIC REEL (OPTIONAL)
The optional hydraulic reel allows you to conveniently adjust down pressure or lift out of the ground with in-cab hydraulic operation. An easy-to-read pressure gauge allows for easy down-pressure monitoring from the tractor seat! This design maintains travel regardless of the selected down pressure. A hydraulic cylinder is used to preload down-pressure springs. When field conditions are not ideal, the harrow can be raised.
HYDRAULICALLY-ADJUSTABLE GANG ANGLE FROM 0-6° ON-THE-GO
Sizes and covers residue in the fall at 3° to 6° and prepares the ultimate spring seedbed at 0°.
TRUE VERTICAL TILLAGE MACHINE
With 20" Turbo Coulters spaced 7½" apart, Turbo-Max provides truly vertical cutting without the shearing caused by concave blades. Offset front and rear gangs achieve an effective residue cutting width of 3¾" when running at 0°, which is recommended for seedbed preparation.
HYDRAULIC TONGUE (OPTIONAL)
Optional Hydraulic Tongue allows front-to-back leveling on-the-go from the cab of the tractor.
HYDRAULIC WEIGHT TRANSFER IS STANDARD (MODELS 18' AND LARGER)
Creates an even and constant downforce across the entire width of the implement, assuring uniform penetration and eliminating the possibility for wings to float.
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.
ROLLING SPIKE AND REEL REAR ATTACHMENT
Rolling spike harrow tines split Turbo Coulters to ensure thorough mixing of soil and residue and provide a smooth, uniform seedbed for optimum planter performance. The rear reel leaves the surface planter-ready by firming soil, removing air pockets, and eliminating clods.
7½" BLADE SPACING
Turbo-Max features two gangs — each with 7½" spacing between coulters — with the rear gang offset from the front gang. The gangs work together to size residue to an industry-leading 3¾".
