With the introduction of a new line of 6231 Series models, Landoll Corporation has taken Tandem Disc Harrows to a whole new level, in part to handle the demands of today’s heavy residue and cool soil conditions. Available in widths from 21 to 36 feet, 6231 Series Disc Harrows are available with a choice of 24-, 26- or 28-inch diameter disc blades on most models, as well as a choice of 7-inch or 8¾-inch blade spacing. Both the 7-inch spacing and 28-inch blade diameter represent new options to provide customers with more tillage choices, whether the desire is for high-residue primary tillage applications or simply preparing a smooth, level seedbed in preparation for planting.
“Like the existing 6200 Series tandem disc harrows, the 6231 Series features a high ratio of weight per foot for penetration and residue cutting in the fall, as well as walking tandems with heavy-duty tires for added flotation, and a single point hydraulic depth control for a secondary page in the spring,” says Jamie Meier, Ag Manager at Landoll. “However, based on feedback from producers, we have developed a conditioner reel as an optional rear attachment for those desiring a smoother finish.
The capacity of the fore/aft leveler has been increased for heavier rear attachments and provides better front/rear stability in the field and during transport. We also added the option of hydraulic raise and lowering of the available chevron conditioner reel on all 6231 models.”
Other new features include increased access for adjusting the front gauge wheels, a front-accessible grease bank for the walking tandem axles, and scraper arms that have been increased in thickness to 1¾ inches.
“It’s all about adding more versatility to our products and improving the ability to multi-task, which, in turn, provides our customers with a greater return-on-investment,” Meier concludes. “And, like the original 6200 Series, the new 6231 Series discs are true multi-taskers.”
