Horsch Joker RT

Clever Alternative to Vertical Tillage and Tandem Disc Harrows

 

 

The Joker is the first tillage tool to introduce high-speed compact disc technology to North America. It’s a proven minimum-till practice that’s unlike any other on the market. This true residue management system offers a wide range of benefits to trump any of your existing tandem discs, field cultivators, vertical tillage implements and seedbed preparation tools. In other words, the Joker does what others can’t.

 

Residue Management

 

The Joker is a true residue management system. That means it does more than chop the residue. It blends material into the soil to speed decomposition and incorporate nutrients into the soil.

 

Soil Consolidation

 

The Joker MT and RT Series consolidate the topsoil to create the perfect environment for decomposition and form the ideal seedbed. This helps speed up residue decomposition, prevent erosion, conserve moisture and create the perfect seedbed.

 

Fertilizer Incorporation

 

Because of its excellent mixing capabilities, the Joker can be used to incorporate fertilizer and manure into the soil after it is spread on top of the ground.

 

Rut/Clump Control

 

The positioning and mixing action of the disc blades effectively fill in ruts left by machinery and nature. This, combined with the excellent clod- and clump-crushing ability of the Roll-Flex finishing system, produces a smooth field finish — no matter how rough it was before.

 

High-Speed Operation

 

The 20-inch discs of the Joker allow it to operate much faster than traditional tillage tools. In fact, it works best at speeds from 8-12 mph, leading to significant fuel and time savings.
