BOULDER, CO, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - Today, tillage and planting expert Ingersoll Tillage Group, launched a new
innovation set to redefine the vertical tillage industry in North
America. Unveiled among industry peers at the AG CONNECT Expo in
Atlanta, the new Ingersoll SoilRazor™ VT vertical tillage disc (patent
pending) features a unique serrated edge that maintains its cutting
ability as it wears, season after season.
To demonstrate the effectiveness of the SoilRazor VT technology,
Ingersoll worked with select OEM industry partners to develop new
products that could leverage the innovation. Through trials, SoilRazor
VT's distinctive technology is quickly redefining the vertical tillage
"Prior to this a stay-sharp blade that performed in this way was unheard
of in our industry," says Larry Kuster, Senior Marketing Specialist for
AGCO Corp. "We began using this technology in our Saber™ blade and
demonstrated our prototype with 3,000 acres on it to crop producers
last fall. When they saw the results, they were very excited."
Its unique wear factor is what makes the SoilRazor VT a breakthrough
technology for the vertical tillage industry. The disc's serrated edge
remains sharp through use providing a long-lasting cutting edge that
maintains its ability to slice and size the toughest residue as it
wears. Even at the highest speeds, the SoilRazor VT retains durability
"Our customers recognize a difference with this blade and the response
has been very positive," says Curt Davis, Marketing Manager for Krause
Corp., developers of the new Excalibur™ blade that also leverages
SoilRazor VT's technology. "The serrated edge is able to capture and
slice residue very effectively - most disc blades have rounded edges
that allow residue to slide off easily."
Developed in North America, the SoilRazor VT uses a proprietary boron
alloy steel coupled with Ingersoll's unique processing technology to
provide unmatched hardness, flexibility, sharpness and wear resistance.
The SoilRazor VT is currently available to North American crop producers
for vertical tillage machinery through select OEMs. Contact your local
