The OFDP-55HD is sold with a 4” or 6” quick attach trailing boot. Our quick attach trailing boots are designed to be changed out in minutes by removing a safety pin and lifting the boot off the machine, setting the other boot in its place and replacing the safety pin. The 4” quick attach trailing boot is designed to accurately install 3” or 4” diameter tile. The 6” quick attach trailing boot is designed to accurately install 5” or 6” diameter tile. The optional 8” quick attach trailing boot is designed to accurately install 8” diameter tile. Also available, 7”, 9”, and 11” front wear plates which can be changed by removing 6 bolts.
There are parallel pull arms on the OFDP-55HD model. The lower arm pulls the shoe/shank assembly through the soil. The upper arm controls the reverse pressure of the shoe/shank assembly. This keeps the shoe/shank at zero pitch. When using the walking-tandem, the reverse pressure on the upper arm transfers down pressure from the tongue of the plow to the drawbar of the tractor increasing traction.
With the 26 degree front angle on the shoe, the machine lifts and shatters the soil to allow the machine to glide through the soil with less resistance. The v-bottom on the base of the shoe/shank assembly allows the soil to form to the tile, greatly reducing the risk for crushed tile.
The OFDP-55HD operates with a zero pitch on the shoe/shank assembly. Zero pitch allows for the most accurate tile placement in the industry. With zero pitch, the tile is discharged at the same depth as the tip of the shoe, so the tile is discharged at the depth grade control indicates.
The OFDP-55HD is shipped with a Bullpull hitch. The Bullpull allows the pin to swivel in the hitch with the Bullpull shimmed tight to the clevis.
The OFDP-55HD is equipped with 3 hydraulic lift cylinders for faster reactions and greater grade control. The cylinders only require 2500 pounds of hydraulic pressure to operate, compared to the industry average of 35oo pounds.
Also included with this machine is a laser/GPS mount for grade control equipment.
