Tillage documentation and prescription functionality included with TruSet™ Tillage

With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, 2230 Field Cultivator operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature will give producers the ability to capture and analyze the field cultivator pass for additional coverage of the crop production cycle. Prescription functionality provides producers the capability to ensure their tillage operations are executed correctly, optimizing their investment in preparing for the next crop.

Operators can document data for the depth of their field cultivator sweeps along with rolling basket down pressure. By creating an as-applied map based off of global positioning system (GPS) data for the job performed by each functional area on the implement, TruSet enables producers to document their tillage passes then later review and analyze the data for future agronomic decisions.

Additionally, the Prescription Creator by Agrian® company, a connected partner tool through the John Deere Operations Center, enables producers to create prescriptions for each functional area on the 2230 Field Cultivators. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that will command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.

Level-lift™ frame ensures even operation through all operating depths

The Level-lift hitch ensures a level operation through all operating depths. It also provides consistent gang and sweep depth fore to aft for thorough seedbed preparation. This quick, easy adjustment ensures a flat seedbed floor and level soil profile for planting.

The combination of the sweep and harrow functions promotes consistent and uniform chemical placement and mixing. The T-hitch enables easy turnbuckle adjustment for fast tractor changeover and quick implement leveling fore to aft.

The heavy-duty T-hitch allows for tighter turning, decreasing the amount of headlands required for quick turns on the end. The T-hitch also houses the hoses and wiring harness, protecting them from crop and incidental tire contact.

Low-transport configurations available for 2230LL

Low-transport configuration Low-transport configuration

Low power lines and bridges can be a concern when transporting equipment. The 2230 Field Cultivator lineup includes low-transport configurations as a solution for transportation concerns.

The 2230LL has two low-transport configurations. These implements fold like a five-section implement, but operate like a three-section implement for improved transportability thanks to the addition of small outer wings that lock rigid for field operation.

Another advantage of the low-transport models is operation over uneven terrain. The low-transport models allow for the rigid wing to follow the contour of the ground.

At 16-km/h (10-mph) working speeds, the 2230LL can cover up to 29.5 hectares (73 acres) per hour enabling producers to size their implement for their unique productivity and agronomic needs.

The 2230LL is available in sizes ranging from 7.2 to 18.4 m (23 ft, 6 in. to 60 ft, 6 in.). Horsepower requirements range from 19.6 to 29.4 kW/m (8 to 12 hp-ft), depending on the soil, depth, and speed.

152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing 152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing

Thanks to an updated frame design that enables true 152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing, the 2230 Field Cultivators can maintain consistent depth and evenly cover the field to achieve an optimal seedbed and manage weeds.

Seedbed preparation

Even at high speeds and in tough field conditions, the TruPosition C-shanks with 91 kg (200 lb) of trip force minimize side-to-side movement and provide the operator better control of the soil profile for improved leveling capabilities.

These shanks provide a full tillage cut across the entire width of the implement. The shanks stay firmly planted in tough soils without quickly relieving. As a result, the soil is mixed completely and streaks are reduced. This helps producers maximize their productivity and create flat seedbeds for smooth planter operation and consistent seed depth.

Weed management

The even 152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing enables the 2230 Field Cultivator to minimize the potential of remaining strips of weeds that survive the tillage pass. With a field cultivator pass just prior to planting/seeding, the crop can emerge into a weed-free field that gives it the best chance to reach canopy ahead of the weeds.

If some weeds emerge and a post-emergence herbicide is needed, weeds should be smaller and easier to control. As a result, the field cultivator pass helps keep weed management costs under control and helps preserve crop yield potential.
