Ripping is necessary to counter compact the ground from the entire tractor and implement weight during the earlier stages of ground preparation. Depending on the amount of compaction in the soil, you might need to rip it twice in the opposite direction with a 60 degree cross rip angle.
At De Wet Drainage we use a ripper that is capable of ripping any soil type due to its feather spring system. With the implement being 3.5m wide and 0.8m deep, together with a ripping fin spacing of 500mm, and will ensure that the correct ground texture required is obtained. We can effectively rip a hectare, in just one and a half hours.
We also offer a ripper Fin of which the shank is 1.2 meter long. Effectively ripping a hectare 1.2 met deep and 1 meter wide in just 5 hours. Making it quicker and cheaper than the bulldozer. Please Note: If the ground is too rocky, a bulldozer is recommended.
Trench Plow is a very common occurrence within farming, but to do it right, there is some factors to keep in mind.
The layering within the soil is the main reason for using this device to mix them accordingly.
Ideally you will want to mix the clay and sand particles to create a sandy loam that is very accessible to any plant’s fine hair- and taproots thus creating the perfect medium for growth and boosting micro life within the soil.
Our trench plow uses a very specific angle on the blades, ensuring that the ground is mixed thoroughly. Vineyards and crops normally have a depth requirement of about 700-800mm in order to reach its full growth potential.
We use a 1.1m deep plow capable of doing a hectare between 7-10 Hours and getting your soil to be the best medium for growth of your crop.
