Versatile - Model TD - Tandem Disc
Versatile tandem discs are built to handle trash and incorporate heavy residue. Utilizing a one of a kind floating hitch, Versatile tandem discs leave a more level finish when compared to competitive units. Versatile discs are also built using the best bearings in the industry, so you stay in the field until the job is done.
Standard Rigid Hanger - 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.
Blade Scrapers - 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.
Transport - 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.
Staggered Front Gangs - Staggered, overlapping front gangs are standard and ensure that all soil at the center of the disc is cut out cleanly and evenly. Besides leaving a more level soil profile, this feature eliminates the need for a center shank or bulk buster normally supplied on most conventional tandems.
Removeable Spindle Axles - 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.
Steel Fabricated Spools - 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.
Large Gang Shaft - 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.
Furrow Filler Blades - 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.
Rephasing Hydraulic Lift System - Depth stop segments are supplied with each disc to ensure continuous same-depth tilling. Each of the wing frames can be easily leveled using a conveniently located eye-bolt adjustment. Cylinder arms on each of the rockshafts are equipped with replaceable hardened wear bushings for prolonged trouble free performance.
Tandem Walking Beam Axle - Standard on the TD500F, TD600, TD600F, TD700 and TD700F. Each walking beam pivots on two tapered roller bearings to improve weight distribution and stability when being transported.
Interlocking Half Spool - This exclusive Versatile feature ensures that each bearing sleeve interlocks with adjoining half spools to provide positive drive to blades and reduces possibility of blades turing on the gang shaft. Optional with 26' blades, standard with 28' and larger (available on 10.5' and 12' spacing only).
Stone Flex Hanger - For those who want additional protection, stone flex hangers are available as an option. With the extreme thrust forces present on a disc and potential for large rocks in some areas, the stone flex hanger is a perfect choice for absorbing shock loads. The C-shaped spring steel reacts to both vertical horizontal forces. Disc blade penetration is not compromised.
