The Versatile TD500 is a multi-purpose disc with the ability to break ground and to prepare a smooth seed bed. Available in 8' and 9' (203, 230 mm) spacing the TD500 ranges in working widths from 23.5' to 40.5' (7.2 to 12.3 m). The Farm King full floating hitch puts the TD500 in a class of its own.
The Versatile TD600 and TD600F provide maximum ground penetration and unparalleled trash handling abilities. Featuring the industry’s heaviest bearings and steel fabricated spools the TD600 and TD600F are built to stand up in all conditions. A full floating hitch maximizes the functionality of the disc. The TD600F model features a transport height below 14' (4.3 m).
The Versatile TD700 and TD700F were built to manage heavy residue in corn, stubble and beets or to turn pasture or hay fields. With gangs torqued to 3200 ft-lbs and T2-215 bearings the TD700 will withstand almost anything. A full floating hitch creates a smooth level finish and prevents gouging. The TD700F folds to a transport height of just 13' 8'.
Heavy built rigid hangers hold strong in the most extreme conditions. The slimline hanger is contoured for maximum trash clearance. The TD500 and TD500N hangers are formed 5/8' steel, reinforced for additional strength. The TD600, TD600F, TD700 and TD00F use hangers constructed from welded steel tubing. All hangers are U-bolt mounted to the gang beam for ease of adjustment or removal.
All Versatile discs feature one piece, 4' wide blade scrapers made of carbon steel for long wear life. The scrapers are U-bolt mounted for maximum adjustment on a heavy-duty tubular steel bar. All scrapers are located high end to the inside of the blade for maximum trash flow and to reduce draft requirements. This eliminates the need for trash guards.
Hydraulic lockout valves are supplied standard to prevent accidental operation of either the lift or wing cylinders when disc is being transported. Low transport fold models TD600F and TD700F have a transport height of 13' 11' (4.3 m) and 13' 8' (4.2 m) respectively.
Versatile tandem discs are built with maintenance concerns in mind. All spindle axles are designed for easy removal and maximum strength. Each spindle is bolted into a sleeve and can be removed by simply removing the bolt and pulling out the axle. This will save valuable time if repairs to a tire are needed.
Versatile discs feature fabricated steel half and full spools. Unlike cast iron spools, steel spools can withstand far greater “shock loads” from rocks or stumps thereby eliminating spool breakage. Compressed to maximum density prior to assembly, Versatile’s fabricated spools ensure the gang will not shift and become loose.
All Versatile discs feature a large 1-15/16' diameter, high carbon steel gang shaft. This gang shaft along with Versatile’s steel fabricated spools allows the gang assembly to be torqued at the factory to 3200 ft/lb.
In order to get the most uniform and consistent field finish, Versatile tandem discs have furrow filler blades as standard equipment. Furrow filler blades are standard, the first 4' smaller than the working blades and the second 8' smaller. These blades along with full sizes blades work together to create a uniform well-worked field.
