What is OPTIMIZER One Pass Tillage?  The OPTIMIZER is the only one-pass tillage system in the world that offers complete conventional tillage. We designed the OPTIMIZER to lower costs by creating a quality seedbed from the post-harvest state in just one pass.

Why change to one pass tillage? One pass means less fuel, less labor, less tractor and equipment maintenance, and less time required for tillage. It not only lowers costs but leads to better crop yields thanks to less compaction. The OPTIMIZER also creates less dust and airborne particulate matter, helping you qualify for the 2008 Farm Bill and helping you meet stricter regulations.

Optimizer 2000 runs in harvested and chopped cotton field, one pass. Setup: 28" Disks, Mid Reels, 12" Deep Shanks, Coulters, Baskets, Rollers.

How does it work? Operating at the optimal 5 to 7 mph, the OPTIMIZER covers 8 to 12 acres per hour. Fuel and labor are reduced by 50% or more. Soil compaction is reduced, and soil tilth is improved for long term benefits. Timely fall and spring tillage can increase yields and allow more acres to be farmed. Results of an EPA study show dust and air pollution are reduced by 50% and engine emissions by an upgraded high-horsepower tractor are reduced by up to 90%.

Is this right for my farm?  The OPTIMIZER comes available in two standard sizes: a folding 18-ft-wide (9-ft-wide for transport) and fixed 12-ft-wide model. Whether you have 500 acres or 5000, the OPTIMIZER will save you time and money.

My tillage program is unique. How can one standard machine replace several implements?  Your OPTIMIZER can be customized with the best implement set for your soil.

  • You can choose from Heavy Duty or Standard wear items. 
  • Chisel depth options range from 6 - 16", and, for rocky soil, a hydraulic reset shank option is available.
  • Several roller combinations are available to best match wet or dry soils.
  • A planter option is available for small-seeded crops.
