The 57 Series spading machines are the heaviest and fastest spaders designed for normal agricultural work. Designed for tractors in the 250-350 hp range, available in 10 and 15 ft working widths. Comes standard with power harrow and operates on 1000 PTO. These spaders have an average working speed of over 5mph @ 10-14” working depth and are suited for larger-sized operations. The 15-foot model will work approximately 9.4 acres per hour. The 57 Series can be ordered with either a three point hitch mount or as a towed trailer mounted unit.
Main tillage and seedbed preparation, possibly in combination with a planting machine, can now be done in one single pass covering unprecedented large acreage. The 57 series highlights the well-known advantages of spading such as mixing the soil thoroughly, improved water management, breaking up the plow pan and the improved use of fertilizer more than ever before.
The 58 Series spaders are based on the 57 series drive train and frame, but are designed without a power driven harrow. Instead they can be fitted with a ground driven cage roller or a polymer “Prismaroller”. The primary spade shaft provides the same working depth of 7-14 inches as the 57 series with a working speed of 5.5 mph. These machines are available in 12 or 15 foot working widths.
The 58 Series is best suited for conditions where a power harrow isn’t needed, specifically for use in light to medium clay soils. The 58WX spaders are built with internally mounted sub-soiler shanks.
