I need a soil saver/disc chisel as the stalks are getting to be too much for my chisel plow. Are the Landoll built Cases worth considering? There are a couple at an upcoming local auction.

I have been pulling a 8 shank 3 point hitch Bush Hog with my 970. Probably looking at a 7 shank.

This one is clearly a Landoll, parked right next to a yellow Landoll marked one.

I believe Glencoe built most of the case soil savers and soil controllers. They seemed to do a decent job.

I'll see what they bring. Worst case I can drop 2 shanks I guess.

I don't think you'll gain much clearance over what you've got.

A standard BH chisel has 12" shank spacing and no spring loaded colter gangs to cut stalks. The Soil savers had 15" spacing, plus the colter gangs up front and the tubular frame was filled with concrete.

I guess I didn't read close enough, I thought the BH he had was a disc chiesel. After I reread it I saw it wasn't. I agree it would be an improvement.

Thanks for the info,
We get into layers of clay if we go over 8" or so deep on some of this ground. Some more some less. On the 8 shank BushHog we always ran 3-2(6.5mph) at 7-8" using 3" twists, often slowing to 3-1(4.8mph) on headlands where there were compaction issues.

Any reason I couldn't run 2.5" or 3" straights, I am more after breaking the ground than burying trash.

Rich,
It all depends on your soil. The straight points bolt directly to the shank rather than having a frog, point, and moldboard(twist shovel). The Approach angle of the Point on the Soil Saver setup is more agressive, lifting the soil above it. The straight shovels are more perpendicular and drag through the soil and have a tendancy to move the soil sideways, infact causing side compaction around them. (Not much soil shatter and lift).

We just bought an 11 shank SC11, built by Landoll this spring. The 1175 pulled it, but it was dry this fall. We have a 2670 for it normally. Again, your 7 shank, might be a bit much for a 970. However, I don't know what soils you have, maybe you could get by with it. They are still great machines, and handle stalks very well. If it fits your budget, I would buy it. You can always get more steam later when the budget allows.

Rich,
The Landoll Soil Savers were, still are, very dependable machines. We were onboard with Landoll, before Case marketed them. Landoll had a very agressive seat of the pants marketing program, which impressed a lot of farmers in our area, when they came to our dealership several times for field demonstrations/seminars on the benifits of shank tillage. Later this winter I will post some details, of their flying in to here and landing on our farm road, more than once. A 7 shank Soil Saver will be a bit much for your 970. They had 4" twist shovels and needed to be pulled at a minimum of 5mph. If you have been dilligent, and have kept your "plow sole broken, the 7 shank may work, for you, but back when we were encourageing farmers to use shank tillage there were extreamly tough compaction zones 6-10" deep, that took 20hp/ shank, thus we sold 5 shank units behind 970s. a 9 shank would put a 1370 on it's arzz, due to traction issues, and a 2470 would struggle with an 11 shank. When ground speed dropped below 5mph the shanks would not lift and shatter the soil and pulled even harder. Loren

Thanks Loren for a good, thorough explanation. I am continually baffled by how many shanks people on here say they can pull, yet how few moldboard plow bottoms some can pull? I have found the opposite to be true. I pull a 9 shank(Unverferth) with a Magnum 7240. Some times 5 MPH is all it will do. I did shallow it a bit though as things started breaking last year.

The trucking from Missouri would be cost prohibitive. I am in Western PA.

I would guess they are early to mid 80s because they are Power Red paint, spring reset shanks, spring mounted coulter gangs.

This one is a 1982, too bad you aren't closer. Good luck at the auction.

Not sure how old you are talking, but Landoll has always built quality tillage tools. Not sure how close you are to Missouri, but I have a 7 shank soil-saver/disk chisel with two sets of points(straight/curved), that needs to go. It was my Grandpa's who retired 5 years ago, and I don't use it as I no-till. Reasonably priced, email open.
