The new 3-point compact duty subsoilers are the right tool for you when breaking up a hardpan developed over years of heavy use. Compacted soil can hurt you in two ways: plant roots cannot penetrate into the lower levels of the soil to tap additional nutrients and, in wet conditions, the excess water cannot drain away…both effects weaken your plants and reduce your yields. Mega Ripper Subsoilers are very straight forward and simple machines. The shank protrudes down from a sturdy frame and rips through the compacted layers of soil. A coulter is placed in front of the shank to slice through the surface residue and while minimizing damage and lowering the horsepower requirements. We pulled this device in sandy soil 16” deep with a 33 HP 4wd tractor without draft control. We noticed in areas where the implement was used, the land is softer and grass starts to grow sooner due to the sub soil moisture content. (See photo below)

Kunz Engineering offers the Till-Ease line of pull behind tillage equipment. Currently the Model 543 chisel plow /field cultivator and Models TP2148 and TP3272 cultipackers make up the product line but new products and accessories are being designed. Let the Model 543 work for you to create that trophy deer or wildlife food plot, new lawn or garden. In many cases the standard tow behind ATV disk harrow or ATV field cultivator with spring shanks can only create a shallow seedbed. The Till-Ease is equipped with rigid shanks which are capable of easily creating deep seedbeds which in many cases translates to a stronger, faster growing crop. The Model 543 can also be equipped with an optional drag harrow and a turning shovel kit for working in sod conditions. Let the Model TP2148 or TP3272 cultipacker provide the proper seed to soil contact. That translates to faster more dependable seed germination. The Model TP2148 is made up of 21 individual agricultural quality cast iron packer wheels and the Model TP3272 is made up of 32 packer wheels. The Models TP2148 and TP3272 have been designed to be used as a pull type unit, flip over or a 3-point tractor mount, all in the same unit.
