Features

Ecolo-Tiger 527B Highlights

  • Most Effective conservation tillage machine available for the horsepower required
  • Adjustable spacing
  • Discs are indvidually mounted on a separate hydraulically controlled frame
  • Rear leveler utilizes patented opposing blades to fill in shank valleys
  • Earth Metal® blades for maximum life and durability​

 

RESIDUE MANAGEMENT

Reduce Erosion and Increase Production Capacity

Case IH disk rippers help you cut, size and mix crop residue to reduce erosion and increase production capacity. This effective crop residue management allows you to:

  • Increase organic-matter content in the soil
  • Provide a soil/residue mixture that allows moisture to penetrate the subsoil faster
  • Decrease erosion through improved porosity and drainage

 

BT Residue Tool

With the adoption of Bt hybrids, you need aggressive disk components capable of cutting and mixing the tougher stalks. The Case IH Ecolo-Tiger® 875 tackles Bt residue with:

  • 24-in. (610-mm) individual disks or optional, huge, 26-in. (660-mm) cushion gang® disks
  • 12-in. (304-mm) spacing between gang disks
  • A split-the-middle gang position front to back
  • Reduces stalk size for improved flow and better mixing

 

Earth Metal Blades

The Ecolo-Tiger 527B, 530C, 730C and 875 and Conser-Till® 690 are fitted with Earth Metal® blades, which feature:

  • A 24-in. (610-mm) or 26-in. (Ecolo-Tiger 875 only) diameter
  • Patented index position relative to the shanks
  • Increased ductility and reduced breakage
  • Boron steel that, when heat-treated, enhances the hardness without affecting ductility. This balance allows for a longer wearing blade while providing breakage resistance.
  • A flat center that matches perfectly with each nodular cast iron spool. This produces the strongest possible joints with gangs that stay tight.
  • A crimped center, which provides added strength in high-stress areas of the disk blade
