    New farm, the journey begins!

    Holy Moly. What are you going to use to install drainage? We just sold a couple of these drainage plows to farmers in Australia and UK. Might be something to consider if you're interested! Check out Soil-Max's webinar on water drainage here.

    You could give it a try yourself and save quite a bit without gravel. We've got two of these being delivered next week to a farmer in Spalding and another in Duns. This company is also hosting a webinar on water drainage. Here is their webinar sign-up.

    Are water drainage solutions hard to come by?

    That was most definitely considered but we plan to be in the UK during that time to host plough demonstrations. We will be recording the webinar so if anyone cannot make it but is interested in a copy, you can either message me on here or send me an email to [email protected]

    Drainage trencher

    For that plough (Pull-Type), it matters more about the weight of the tractor than it does the HP. Soil-Max recommends at least a 12 tonne tractor for this type of plow. But our smallest plough requires a 7 tonne tractor. All the ploughs are designed with a link to attach a cable to a 2nd...

    The smallest plough (ZD1200) can go 1.2 meters deep and the largest plough (Pull-Type) can go up to 2 meters deep.

    The slim shear design makes it easy for tractors to pull through the soil. You're right about traction, that is very important when pulling one of these machines. The smallest plough requires a 7 tonne tractor and the largest requires a 12 tonne. Soil-Max has also designed the ploughs with a...

    Where is the best place to buy drainage gravel

    Well that's convenient! It's always nice to know someone with their own machine. I've attached some videos below for you to reference. You can also visit www.soilmax.com/plows. Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions.

    Yes, it's similar to how a Zor plough works. Uses RTK GPS along with grade control. Also manufactured from T-1 steel.

    Drainage trencher

    In the Midwest, yes but there are a lot of areas that have hard clay soil. We've got ploughs in Sweden, Norway, Northern France, Italy, Denmark, Ukraine, Romania and we have yet to find an area of farmland that this plough does not work in.

    Depending on what size of plough, the necessary minimum weight of the tractor ranges from 7 tonne to 12 tonne.

    Drainage trencher

    Most of the time, the shear will lift the stone up out of the ground. If it's too big, the tractor tires will spin so all you'd have to do is take an excavator and dig it out. No need to lift the plough out, you just dig a hole next to the stone and move it over to that hole so you can continue...

    Drainage trencher

    It lifts the soil (so all of the subsoil stays below the topsoil) and lays the pipe right behind the shear. Because we understand that it is very common outside of North America to lay gravel on top of the pipe, we do make an AggBox (lays pipe and also has a hopper on top to fill in). From all...

    Sumo quatro forward speed.

    Do you usually contract your drainage work? We've begun selling Soil-Max Drainage Ploughs in the UK and farmers are finding that this option is easy to do themselves, ends up being cost-effective, and has a good return with the yield increase and increase in field time.
