Celebrating a decade of improving soil productivity with true vertical tillage, the patented I-1100 uses the Coil-Tech Coulter I to carry independently mounted blades that have up to six inches vertical travel and are able to move around obstacles. Unlike disc gangs that have difficulty following ground contours or are forced to leave the ground when one blade contacts an obstacle, the I-1100 independently mounted coulters follow changes in terrain and each coulter faces obstructions on its own. The Independent Series has industry-leading speed, obstacle protection, and range of operating conditions, with little to no soil moisture and residue limitations. The Coil-Tech Coulter I system thrives on the high operating speeds of the I-1100. Positive coulter vibration works the ground like a jackhammer, fracturing the soil around and below the operating depth of these unique machines. Independent Series tools manage residue and soil density to improve soil moisture storage capacity, build soil organic matter, and hold onto valuable nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
