For many years the KMC Rip Strip has been the main stay in the Southeast for breaking the hard pan and preparing an in row seed zone for uniform seed planting and excellent soil to seed contact in a variety of tough conservation tillage conditions. Middles are left undisturbed, and row components are designed and positioned to run through tall standing grains or heavy crop residue without dragging. 
Key Features 
  • Swivel Coulters or CCR:  Choice of spring loaded Swivel Residue Coulters or CCR
  • Ripper Shank:  Reset on the Go Shank or Toggle Trip Shank trail and are in line with the residue cutting coulters 
  • Row Tillage Components:  Choice of various Row Tillage Components are mounted rearward of the Shank on a separate Tool Bar that floats independent of the main Tool Bar on Parallel Linkages.  Row tillage components remain in the soil when Shank trips.   Additional down pressure can be applied to the tillage components with spring adjustment in the Parallel Linkages. Pneumatic Press Wheels can be substituted in lieu of Row Tillage components for sub soil no till applications
  • Units equipped with Swivel Coulters  come equipped with one pair of screw type adjustable gauge wheels on six and eight row implements and two pair on twelve and 16 row implements.  Additional gauge wheels may be required for additional flotation on twelve or 16 row implements that come equipped with Swivel Coulters.  Units equipped with CCR in lieu of Swivel Coulters do not come equipped with Gauge Wheels.  The CCR functions as Gauge Wheels.  However, in some conventionally tilled dry, sandy, loamy conditions, rear mounted Gauge Wheels may be required to prevent the CCR from pushing soil.
  • Parking stands are standard  
  • A complete line of Accessories (Gauge Wheels, Planter Supporting Lift Assist Wheels, Planter attaching Reach Arms, Helper Wheels, Row Markers, Row Cleaners) is available to complete the unit for almost any field application.
