Ripper-Bedder - Unverferth Seedbed Tillage

The Unverferth Ripper Bedder uses deep till shanks and offset discs to create an ideal seedbed for peanuts, cotton and other bedded crops, saving you time and fuel by doing both in one pass. 

Features

  • Heavy-duty, double frame, welded construction and 6" x 6" rear bar
  • Steep-sloped, heat-treated deep-till shanks that loosen compaction to a depth of 18 inches and allow plant roots access to soil moisture and nutrients beneath the hardpan
  • Model 410 features economical, shear-bolt shank protection with 7,500 lbs. of shear pressure
  • Model 430 features auto-reset shanks with pivoting shank mounts that trip upward and rearward for avoiding in-field obstacles and quickly reset without the need for shear-bolt replacement; trip pressure of 6,000 lbs. for consistent working depth
  • Bedding disk gangs are fitted with 18" outer- and 20" inner-concave disk blades that till, raise and shape the seedbed for optimum seed germination and vigorous, early plant growth
  • Gang positioning can be staggered for shaping rounded beds that capture and retain more moisture, or opposed for a taller, peaked bed
  • Disk blades are 4-position angle adjustable from 7-degrees to 24 degrees
  • Bedder arms can be mounted offset or in-line (back to back) for a cleaner furrow
  • Bedder arms feature a parallel link design and are tool-free adjustable to one of three settings:
    • Floating – works best in rolling contours and previously tilled soils
    • Semi-rigid – works well when extra downpressure is needed but arms may still float freely downward to follow uneven soils
    • Rigid – ideal for untilled conditions and standing beds from previous crop where soil penetration is important in level conditions
  • Durable powder-coat finish of tractor red or green

Accessories

  • Optional 20.5 x 8-10 gauge-wheel package provides added flotation in tilled soils when bedding disk in floating mode
  • Optional front coulters with six-bolt hubs and 20" 13-wave feature 1,500 lbs. penetration.
  • Can be fitted with optional 20-inch, 13-wave blades for exceptional cutting.
  • Optional blade-scraper kit bolts onto bedding disk arm
  • Optional bed-shaper kit for added leveling and a firmer, ready to plant seedbed
  • For added shank life, optional shank protectors are available in either steel or plastic
  • Shear-bolt protected row markers with notched blades penetrate soil to leave a highly visible mark in a variety of soil types, residue and terrain
    • Markers for folding models are either bi- or tri-folding for compact transport
    • Optional quage wheels provide added flotation lighter soils
  • Optional shank protectors enhance shank durability and are available in either plastic or steel styles
  • For 12-row wide models, an available lift-asssit package makes raising and lowering the machine quicker and easier
