McFarlane Manufacturing Co. offered a sneak preview of its new Quadra-Till Primary Combo Tillage Tool during the 2016 National Farm Machinery Show last weekend in Louisville, Kentucky.

“The engineering updates to the Quadra-Till turn a great product into a world-class product,” McFarlane Vice President Stan McFarlane said. “We have put a lot of time into the study of tillage practices and through our design and engineering efforts have created a tool that is truly unique. A 'one-pass' fall Primary Combo Tillage Tool.”

The machine can size residue to aid decomposition; completely shatter soil to eliminate compaction layers; mix residue uniformly so that seeds come into contact with the soil in a way that will give the best results; and level the seedbed, simplifying the work needed in the finishing steps.

“This is a Primary Combo Tillage Tool that really needs to be seen in the field because there is nothing else like it”, Norm Burgeson, sales manager at McFarlane, said. “The design updates including the option for independently mounted disk blades allow us to greatly expand the number of markets for this tool. The Quadra-Till accomplishes what other conventional competitive units can’t, and far more economically. Size, shatter, mix and level in a single pass, and with the finishing capabilities that McFarlane is so well known for, making it the only single pass unit in its class.”
