Tiling equipment maker and Ag Leader Technology subsidiary Soil-Max has introduced a new piece of tiling equipment that promises to make sub-surface irrigation and drainage a more affordable option for more producers. Soil-Max’s newest addition to the Stealth ZD family, the ZD 48, debuted at the recent National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky and will begin shipping to buyers this summer.
This new model will bring the ability to be used by a more wide range of producers. It fits into vegetable, vineyard, forage, and pattern tiling operations, as well as the subsurface irrigation market. The ZD 48 uses the same Patented Zero Deflection Technology and aerodynamic design of the larger Stealth ZD plows. The new model is designed to be pulled by tractors in the large utility class that are equipped with a Category II 3pt hitch. It can install 2”-4” tile at a depth of up to 4 feet deep. When you pair this technology with the Ag Leader Intellislope® control system, you have a combination that can place tile when and where you want it.
Soil-Max officials believe this will bring the opportunity for more people to economically tile with tractors they already own.
