Lemken expands its line of Rubin 12 high-speed discs with 26- and 31-foot working widths. As with the original 9.8- to 23-foot models, the new implements are designed for intense residue incorporation in all soil types. This enables efficient, cost-effective tillage in all areas, even those previously reserved for cultivators. With the largest discs on the market and operating speeds of up to 10 mph, the 26- and 31-foot models increase efficiency and productivity for larger operations in both spring and fall tillage applications.

“Regardless of their operation size, farmers have a small window of opportunity to get their work done,” said Jim Balstad, vice president of sales and marketing for Lemken USA. “The new Rubin 12 models were designed to allow larger operations to get more done in that short timeframe. The 26-foot and 31-foot working widths can cover more acres per hour and do it all in one pass, saving time and money.”

All Rubin 12 models feature the largest-diameter discs of any high-speed implement on the market. The 29-inch serrated, concave discs provide an industry-leading working depth of up to 8 inches, incorporating crop residue deep into the soil for faster nutrient release and compaction alleviation. This results in smoother, more uniform seedbed preparation and higher yields.

The wider 26-foot and 31-foot models are ideal for use with higher horsepower tractors for large operations with more ground to cover in a short timeframe. Operating at peak speeds, the 26-foot model can till up to 25 acres per hour, while the 31-foot is capable of up to 30 acres.
