Seller Comments
MASCHIO designed a full range of folding speed discs. The large diameter disc with its inclination and low concavity allow to get the depth and to throw much more dirt than a conventional vertical tillage tool. Soil is blackened up and tends to warm up faster, so it is possible to advance sowing operations. UFO can replace a conventional disc, field cultivator and rolling straw chopper all at once.

Available in widths up to 20', this high speed, one pass, tillage tool is designed and engineered to get the job done fast.

Agronomic insight

UFO is designed to accomplish several actions in the field:
Residue sizing – Aggressive notched blades slice through crop residue to effectively size it for rapid decomposition.
Residue blending – The high-speed rotation of the discs turns the soil while chopping residue. This results in an ideal mixture of tilled soil with properly sized residue.
Oxygen introduction/warming – As the soil and residue are mixed, oxygen enters the tilled zone and in cooler soils the action also warms the seed zone for rapid crop rooting and emergence.
Activation of soil bacteria – Machinery doesn't break down crop residue as the soil bacteria does. When soil is warmed and oxygen is introduced, soil bacteria becomes active and feeds on crop residue. During this process, the residue decomposes and the nutrients become available for new plantings.
Finishing – Consolidating the soil/residue mix helps bacteria break down residue better. The consolidated surface also produces an ideal seedbed, prevents erosion and creates a capillary effect to preserve moisture
