Case Tiger MateCase IH is offering a new Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator designed to create an ideal spring seeding bed.

The Tiger-Mate 255 create a smooth, flat subsurface that, when combined with the Case IH Early Riser planter, helps growers meet productivity goals and achieve maximum yield.  It can run at up to 10 miles per hour with no loss in seedbed quality thanks to tool-free leveling and adjustments and a more rugged frame.

“With so much emphasis on planting speed and efficiency, producers need a superior field cultivator to realize their planters’ full potential,” said Chris Lursen, Case IH tillage marketing manager. “Built using principles of Case IH Agronomic Design, the Tiger-Mate 255 effectively manages residue, breaks up soil clods and puts the finishing touches on the seedbed for optimal seed-to-soil contact, robust root development and even seedling emergence.”

Features and capabilities of the Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator include:

  • Firm, yet flexible shank assembly 
  • Split-the-middle sweep pattern 
  • High-concavity shank 
  • Single-point depth control
  • Stubble-resistant tires
  • Multiple harrow options

“Available in single-fold sizes ranging from 22 ft. 2 in. to 35 ft. 2 in. and double-fold configurations from 37 ft. 5 in. to 60 ft. 1 in., the Tiger-Mate 255 features the same durability and productivity that Tiger-Mate field cultivators are known for,” Lursen said. “Heavy-duty components throughout this new implement help ensure reliable and low-maintenance operation for seasons to come.”
