Ingersoll redefining vertical tillage with new SoilRazor™ VT

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 industry.

"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 and sharpness.

"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 Ingersoll Tillage Group representative for more information or visit
