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.
