The OPTIMIZER

The OPTIMIZER is the only complete one pass tillage machine on the market today, delivering:

  • Improved crop preparation faster turnaround between crops from less time spent preparing paddocks after a crop for the next crop.
  • Improved crop yields – from stronger more vigorous plant root systems not being subjected to moisture and nutrient constraints from subsurface hard pans.
  • Lower production input costs – from the reduced number of tillage passes and reducing the number of tillage implements used.
  • Optimized tillage window – from being able to do all in one pass when paddock conditions are optimum.

 

One Pass Tillage Machine

The OPTIMIZER is the only one-pass tillage machine in the world that offers the one robust implement that gives complete conventional tillage for all your tillage to be achieved in just one single pass.

The OPTIMIZER replaces individual discing, deep chisel ploughing, spring tooth, soil conditioning, land-plane and ring roller passes by combining them into just ONE MACHINE and all operated in ONE PASS.

The OPTIMIZER can significantly lower crop production costs by creating a quality seedbed from the post-harvest state in just one pass. This means less fuel, less labour, less tractor hours and maintenance and less time in the field. You can hit the paddock when conditions are optimum for your tillage.

Not only does the OPTIMIZER lower input costs from a singular pass but it gives better crop yield from better plant root systems thanks to its deep tillage to break up the compacted traffic plan.

 

ABOUT: The OPTIMIZER

The highly acclaimed and patented Optimizer™ has perfected the science of one pass tillage. 

Californian farmer Kevin McDonald was not happy with conventional tillage. He needed to beat down his high costs of fuel and labour so he created the Incorpramaster. Mark Hoffman, a dairy farmer and engineer, bought an Incorpramaster and soon joined Kevin’s team. Together they took tillage to the next level with the OPTIMIZER.

The OPTIMIZER helps to improve productivity and farming efficiency with this single one-pass tillage machinery helping deliver to you a higher return on your investment. This single, highly-efficient one pass tillage machinery will help you achieve optimal agronomic conditions by effectively managing crop residue, removing field traffic compacted hard pans, creating the most favourable soil conditions for new crop growth.

The OPTIMIZER – Tillage Equipment Benefits:

  • Lower costs as much as 50% by saving on fuel, labour and tractor maintenance (reduces equipment wear and tear) 
  • Less time (time-efficient) spent in the field with tillage 
  • Deep ripping tillage to remove compacted traffic hard pans 
  • Strategic One Pass Tillage – all operations in the one pass 
  • Operates at an optimum speed of 8-11 km/hr (5-7 mph)
  • Good productivity at 4.5 – 6.0 ha/hr (8-12 acres per hour)
  • Reduces dust and air pollution
  • Post-harvest crop residue management 

Single Pass Tillage

The OPTIMIZER’s one pass operation is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. DISC & REEL SYSTEM – aggressively incorporate and break down crop residue, loosen and mix the soil and residue, and break down clods (up to 200mm working depth).
  2. DEEP TILLAGE CHISEL TYNE SYSTEM (with optional Coulters) – aggressively bust up subsurface traffic hard pan (up to 500mm working depth).
  3. BASKET & ROLLER FINISHING SYSTEM – aggressively break down clods from the deep tillage, level and a finished seed bed, and firm the soil surface to control soil moisture loss.

 

The OPTIMIZER – Tillage Machinery Models

There are two tillage management options in the OPTIMIZER range: the OPTIMIZER 3500 and 5500. These options make customized tillage possible for each type of crop. Implements can be suited to different crop types and soil compositions.

OPTIMIZER WORKING WIDTHS:

The OPTIMIZER 3500

  • 3.5m (12 feet) wide

The OPTIMIZER 5500

  • A heavy-duty 5.5m (18 feet) wide model

 

SPECIAL FEATURES

SUSTAINABLE FARMING – Reduced number of passes decreases energy inputs and fuel consumption leading to reduced emissions, soil erosion and compaction while improving land use.

STRATEGIC TILLAGE – Ability for deep ripping into the soil profile to remove compacted hard pans from heavy field traffic providing a more ideal soil structure for stronger plant nutrient and water uptake and more vigorous root growth.

CROP RESIDUE MANAGEMENT The OPTIMIZER specializes in crop residue management by incorporating remaining plant material after a crop has been harvested such as leaves, stalks, roots and other plant material in preparation for the next crop.

COMPLETE TILLAGE IN AN IDEAL WINDOW Make sure your crop gets off to the best start by using the OPTIMIZER to ensure optimal agronomic conditions and prepare your crop quickly within the ideal time frame for maximum returns.

Note: The Optimizer can also be fitted with an air seeder for cover crop sowing.

The OPTIMIZER: Tilling Equipment

No other one-pass tillage machine on the market today can match the OPTIMIZER in strength and reliability, in-field performance and results.

The OPTIMIZER can significantly lower crop production costs by creating a quality seedbed from the post-harvest state in just one pass. This means less fuel, less labour, less tractor hours and maintenance and less time in the field. You can hit the paddock when conditions are optimum for your tillage.

Not only does the OPTIMIZER lower input costs from a singular pass but it gives better crop yield from better plant root systems thanks to its deep tillage to break up the compacted traffic plan.
