Variable Rate Tillage™


Summers didn’t set out to invent Variable Rate Tillage, but that’s exactly what happened after working closely with farmers on our first piece of equipment boasting the technology, the VRT2530. The idea was simple: give the operator the ability to adjust tillage aggressiveness from the comfort of the cab. Because fields can vary greatly, Variable Rate Tillage allows a farmer to shift aggressiveness in order to get the best field finish possible.

The secret to Summers Variable Rate Tillage technology is in the patented hydraulic hitch, which allows the operator to transfer weight between the front and rear blades. Placing more weight on either allows the blades to engage differently for the ideal field finish.
