Tillage equipment is one of the oldest and most important types of equipment utilized by farmers. It is used to break up soil and ease soil compaction, level fields, and cut weeds in order to prepare the soil for planting crops. There are various types of tillage equipment for sale such as plows, rippers, field cultivators, row crop cultivators, disks, land rollers, mulch finishers, rotary tillage, vertical tillage, and other tillage equipment. Tillage equipment has been around since the beginning of farming. Plows, for example, have been used for hundreds of years and are an essential piece of farming equipment used to cut through, lift, and turn over soil and to bury weeds and crop residue, and some rudimentary types of cultivators have been around even longer than that.
In recent years, there have been many technological innovations that have made tillage equipment more efficient and effective. Disks are now built to handle the toughest soil conditions and offer hydraulic folding capabilities for easier transport. Land rollers are being equipped with larger drums allowing for fewer rotations and less horsepower. Cultivators are being built stronger and able to cover more ground in the field and at more consistent depths, and row crop cultivators in particular now feature GPS and camera guidance technology.
