Smart-Till and Gateway featured in 2008 National Farm Machinery Show Show Guide

August 27, 2008


Patented tines on the SMART-TILL rotate into and through the plow layer to fracture soil up to 8 inches deep, promoting healthy air and water exchange in pasture, forage and other no-till field environments. Minimal surface disturbance helps maintain continuity in the soil ecosystem. Tines are spaced 7.5 inches and can enter the soil with 400 lbs. of downward force per foot of implement width. HCC currently offers the SMART-TILL in 10’,15’ widths. All models are available with an optional rotary harrow attachment featuring tine assemblies that are adjustable through a 60° sweep.

HCC says its GATEWAY sieve and chaffer system is nearly 50% lighter than the systems most often found on today’s combines. The design uses aluminum and plastic construction to help lower frame weight without compromising frame strength. The reduced weight makes it easier to change sieve and chaffers for various crops. GATEWAY sieves and chaffers are available for CASE, John Deere, AGCO / Gleaner and New Holland combines. Two slat styles and two row spacing’s handle a variety of crops.
