When you are in need of a tillage solution designed with versatility in mind to increase your efficiency and productivity, John Deere has two new products that you may want to consider. The John Deere 2660VT Variable Intensity Tillage Tool and the John Deere 2680 High Performance Disk are new product offerings that have drawn a lot of interest amongst farmers looking opportunities to manage residue better.
Martin will be providing a ride and drive tillage day with both of these tillage solutions on Wednesday August 13th from 9AM – 2PM just east of Brimfield, IL on Route 150. From Interstate 74 Exit at Brimfield (Exit 75) and go north 100 yards to Route 150. Turn Right and head east 2 miles. We will have the John Deere 9RX tractor, John Deere 2660VT, and John Deere 2680H in the field for product demonstration.
John Deere 2660VT Variable-Intensity Tillage Tool
The John Deere 2660VT Variable-Intensity Tillage Tool is available in six models with working widths from 20 to 50 feet, in three- and five-section configurations. Operators have the choice of tire options to suit specific needs, including radial, bias or high-floatation tires. Other choices include Walk-Over™ tandem wheels which can provide excellent stability and floatation or stabilizer wheel options which are available based on configuration.
Front-mounted active-hydraulic depth control castering wheels on outer wings come standard on all five-section configurations. The John Deere 2660VT also has compact transport dimensions to help you move between fields with ease, enhancing productivity each day. The three-section models are under 14 feet high, and the five-section models fold to less than 15.5-feet wide. In addition, the John Deere 2660VT also features the two-part ProFinish Leveling system which effectively reduces clods and pin residue.

John Deere 2680H High-Performance Disk
The John Deere 2680H High-Performance Disk can be used for tillage throughout both the fall and the spring. With a capability of traveling at speeds up to 14 miles per hour, this machine can cover more ground in a shorter amount of time. Ultimately, this results in more productivity efficiency for operators.
The disk has individual 20-inch smooth or notched disk blades mounted on a rubber torsion suspension system. This allows the blades to follow the contours of the ground for an overall smoother ride. The blades, which have 10-inch spacing for maximum residue flow, are angled 17 degrees on the front rank and 14 degrees on the rear rank for aggressive horizontal soil movement. The John Deere 2680H High-Performance Disk has an easy-to-manage depth control system, along with greaseless bushings and bearings that increase uptime and reduce the need for frequent maintenance.
Fifteen different models are available from an eight-foot model to drawn models of up to 45-feet wide. The goal is to match customers’ acreage size and horsepower requirements.
