Adapt to changing field conditions with 0- to 12-degree adjustable gang angle

Adjustable gang angle Adjustable gang angle

A gang angle that can be adjusted from 0 degrees to 12 degrees enables a producer to maximize productivity, adapt to spring or fall fieldwork, and address multiple agronomic challenges. Some producers may desire a true vertical tillage of 0-degree gang angle to decrease soil and residue disturbance on highly erodible land. For others, a more aggressive gang angle is desired to level the field, fill in light ruts, remove weeds, or incorporate more residue in the soil. The adjustable gang angle allows producers to create the ideal seed bed, no matter the field conditions.

Light tire tracks Light tire tracks
Weed removals Weed removals
Highly erodible land Highly erodible land
Quick and easy gang angle adjustments

The 2660VT offers two methods to adjust the gang angle in changing field conditions. Using the the TruSet™ Tillage system, the gang angle can be adjusted on the go from the cab, or it can be manually adjusted with the quick and easy-to-use gang roller slider.

Manual adjustment

Four stages of soil and residue processing

Soil and residue processing with the 2660VT Soil and residue processing with the 2660VT
Stage 1: Cutting and sizing
Adjustable front disk gang Adjustable front disk gang

The 2660VT adjustable front disk gang is the beginning of the soil and residue mixing process. The wavy blades have unique beveled angles that easily penetrate the ground to fracture soil, generating tiny clods and starting the initial residue cutting, sizing, and chopping process.

 

To adapt to varying field conditions, the gang angle can easily be hydraulically adjusted from 0 degrees (true vertical tillage) to 12 degrees (aggressive mixing) on the go with TruSet™ Tillage system via a simple push of a button from the cab.

Stage 2: Distributing and mixing
Adjustable rear gang Adjustable rear gang

The adjustable rear gang continues the mixing of loose soil and residue. The 2660VT rear gangs provide a consistent and uniform cut to maintain a shallow depth at higher working speeds.

 

The slightly offset blade-follow-blade design of the 2660VT allows for a more aggressive sub-surface soil blow out, where loose soil is lifted to the surface to be distributed and mixed in the following stages of the process. Slicing residue and placing it in contact with the soil speeds up the breakdown process.

Stage 3: Reconsolidation
Knife-edge baskets Knife-edge baskets

This exclusive John Deere ProFinish™ solution passively reconsolidates soil as it leaves the gangs, re-orientating it from parallel to perpendicular. The knife-edge basket in the reverse position keeps material in the soil profile, adding an additional step of processing to reduce clods and mix and pin residue, anchoring it to the surface.

 

The design levels the subsoil by perpendicularly knocking out larger ridges commonly seen behind competitive vertical tillage tools. This sub-surface interaction provides a smooth and uniform seedbed to optimize the planter ride quality in a variety of field and soil conditions.

Stage 4: Leveling
Hydraulic rolling baskets Hydraulic rolling baskets

For further processing, this John Deere ProFinish solution pulverizes remaining clods, removes remaining soil from any worked root balls, and anchors remaining residue all while firming up the soil.

 

The hydraulically adjustable rolling basket helps distribute larger soil particles on the surface and finer soil particles in the seed zone to promote excellent seed-to-soil contact in the spring and to leave a level finish in the fall.

 

The dual hydraulic rolling baskets allow the operator to adjust down pressure, adapting to changing field conditions on the go and achieving the preferred final smooth and uniform field finish.

Blades and extended-life bearings

55.9-cm (22-in.) 32-wave blade with double-cut edge 55.9-cm (22-in.) 32-wave blade with double-cut edge
55.9-cm (22-in.) 28-wave blade with double-cut edge 55.9-cm (22-in.) 28-wave blade with double-cut edge

To aid in timely shipments amid supply constraints, John Deere is utilizing 32- and 28-wave blades in 2660VT production. Performance is matched on the 32- and 28-wave blades. Machines ship with either 32-wave or 28-wave blades.

 

Wavy-straight blades work across the entire gang angle range from 0 to 12 degrees. These low-draft blades on 18.41-cm (7.25-in.) spacing use a serrated edge to fracture and lift soil as well as cut and size residue.

 

The 55.9-cm (22-in.) wavy-straight blade’s double-cut edge has specialized angled bevels to effectively penetrate the ground, even in hard soil conditions. The wavy-straight blade with shallow concavity leads to reduced blade compaction and less soil smearing than traditional smooth blades.

Blades
Blades work in many soil conditions Blades work in many soil conditions

The 55.9-cm (22-in.) wavy-straight blade is 6.5-mm (0.256-in.) thick, which allows operators to work in many different soil conditions. The blades are built to flex and absorb impacts in rocky conditions without bending, cracking, or breaking the blade for added durability.

 

Made of high-quality steel, the double-cut-edge blades retain their sharp cutting edges due to the hardness on the outside surface, which also ensures even wear life.

Extended-life bearings
Extended-life bearings Extended-life bearings
Bearings decrease stress on inner rolling surfaces and minimize downtime Bearings decrease stress on inner rolling surfaces and minimize downtime

John Deere’s vertical tillage implements feature extended-life bearings. The design of these durable and reliable bearings feature:

  • Customizable bearing maintenance for specific growing conditions and soil types - ability to grease frequently within the bearing and on outer bearing surface.
  • Flange-mounted bearing and sealing system that improves contamination resistance.
  • Dynamic self-alignment to the gang bolt, compared to trunnion-mounted bearings with limited alignment capability.
  • Additional freedom of movement, accommodating a wider variety of field conditions.
  • Decreased stress and fatigue on the inner rolling surfaces.

ProFinish™ system hydraulic double rolling baskets provide a smooth and level field finish

Hydraulic double rolling baskets Hydraulic double rolling baskets
Rolling baskets distribute residue and reduce clods Rolling baskets distribute residue and reduce clods

The John Deere ProFinish leveling system features a double rolling basket for producers looking to flow high levels of residue through the tool and leave a smooth, level field finish. The front knife-edge basket in a reversed orientation allows the basket to passively keep soil and residue in the profile and adds an additional step that mixes, pins, and buries residue.

 

The rear basket can be configured with either a flat bar or a round bar basket, based on producer preference. These baskets help distribute residue, reduce clods, and firm the soil to preserve moisture and level out the surface and sub-surface finish. If rocks are a concern, the round-bar basket is the best option for finish and durability.


The drawbars and rolling baskets are built with strength in mind for demanding field conditions. The active hydraulic rolling basket features maintenance-free bearings to minimize non-productive activities.  For the rolling baskets, a cast frame was designed to encase the bearing in a high-density polymer liner to enhance dynamic movement and minimize maintenance needed.

  • Distribute larger soil particles on the surface and finer soil particles in the seed zone to promote excellent seed-to-soil contact. Yields can benefit when there is good soil adherence at germination for moisture and nutrient uptake, promoting early seedling growth.
  • Soil particle size distribution also helps to deal with spring rains.
  • Increase pressure to reduce clods and level the soil subsurface to create a more uniform seedbed and increase planter ride quality.

  • TruSet hydraulic fore-aft control enables operators to level the implement from the comfort of the tractor cab.

 

Wing down pressure (Premium package)

Hydraulic wing control pressure Hydraulic wing control pressure
  • TruSet hydraulic wing control transfers the weight from the mainframe to the wings to improve penetration in hard or heavy soils. In high-speed, shallow-depth tillage operations, maintaining a consistent depth across the tillage tool is critical to the consistency of the seedbed.

         

NOTE: TruSet hydraulic wing control pressure is only offered on three-section models.

 

Stabilizer wheels (additional factory option)

  • Getting the best field performance is easier with TruSet Active hydraulic stabilizer wheels. Choose the option to easily adjust the depth of the stabilizer wheels from the cab to match the overall depth as changes are made. This feature replaces the mechanical linkage on stabilizer wheels with a hydraulic cylinder.

NOTE: Stabilizer wheels are not offered on one-section models.

TruSet documentation

With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature allows producers to capture and analyze the tillage pass for additional coverage of the crop production cycle. Prescription functionality provides producers the capability to ensure their tillage operations are executed correctly, optimizing their investment in preparing for the next crop.

 

Operators can document data for the depth of their tillage tool along with rolling basket down pressure. By creating an as-applied map based off global positioning system (GPS) data for the job performed by each functional area on the implement, TruSet enables producers to document their tillage passes then later review and analyze the data for future agronomic decisions.

 

Additionally, the TELUS Agronomy Prescription Creator company, a connected partner tool through the John Deere Operations Center, enables producers to create prescriptions for each functional area on the tillage tools. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.

Compact transport dimensions

Producers are increasing the size of their operations and adding miles of transport to their day. Low power lines, narrow roads and bridges can be a concern when transporting equipment. To accommodate changing demands, the 2660VT has a compact transport design that minimizes transport height and width to provide some of the best transport dimensions in the industry.

Soil shield

Soil shield keeps soil in the profile Soil shield keeps soil in the profile

Increase productivity and get a true working width on every pass with the full-width 2660VT. No overlap is required with the soil shield equipped on the 2660VT. The soil shield is designed to keep soil and residue in the profile at more aggressive gang angles. Reduce passes through the field and cover more acres per hour all while decreasing fuel usage.

Improve soil penetration with TruSet™ hydraulic wing control

Adjust hydraulic pressure to wing-fold cylinders to improve soil penetration Adjust hydraulic pressure to wing-fold cylinders to improve soil penetration

Hydraulic wing control is available in the TruSet Premium package on all three-section 2660VT models. This feature allows for varying hydraulic pressure to the wing- fold cylinders, which transfers weight from the mainframe to the wings to improve penetration in hard ground or heavy soils.

 

Maintaining consistency across the entire width of the tillage tool is crucial to the final field finish. Hydraulic wing control stabilizes the wings at shallow depths and high speeds. Fine-tuning down pressure can easily be done in the in-cab display by utilizing TruSet hydraulic wing control.
