MASCHIO designed a full range of folding speed discs. The large diameter disc with its inclination and low concavity allow to get the depth and to throw much more dirt than a conventional vertical tillage tool. Soil is blackened up and tends to warm up faster, so it is possible to advance sowing operations. UFO can replace a conventional disc, field cultivator and rolling straw chopper all at once.
Available in widths up to 20', this high speed, one pass, tillage tool is designed and engineered to get the job done fast.
UFO is designed to accomplish several actions in the field:
Residue sizing – Aggressive notched blades slice through crop residue to effectively size it for rapid decomposition.
Residue blending – The high-speed rotation of the discs turns the soil while chopping residue. This results in an ideal mixture of tilled soil with properly sized residue.
Oxygen introduction/warming – As the soil and residue are mixed, oxygen enters the tilled zon
