Features & Benefits

Product Overview

Top Tasks 

  • Level ground 
  • Clear debris 
  • Till soil 
  • Tear out sod 
  • Smooth ruts 
  • Move material 
  • Grade topsoil 
  • Cut swales 
  • Prepare ground for seeding and sodding 

How It Works 

The drum’s carbide-tipped teeth rip through hardpan and pulverize clumps. Clumps are ground up, and rocks and other debris are windrowed to the edge of the jobsite. A rubber flap above the drum keeps larger material from going over the drum while allowing fine materials through for a smooth finish. The drum rotates in either direction for operating in forward or reverse. Box blade end wings   help move large amounts of material and fill in low spots. 


Oscillation keeps the drum parallel to the ground and helps minimize the effect of bumps and potholes, resulting in a smoother finish in fewer passes. The oscillating bolster (standard on larger models) combined with hydraulic depth and angle controls also make it easy to cut swales for drainage and to sculpt the land.

How to Choose the Right Model

  • Manual Angle and Depth Control: Drum rotation is accomplished with a hydraulic motor, while angle and depth control changes are adjusted manually. Angle control can be set between 0 and 25 degrees to the left or right. Depth control is adjusted with a turnbuckle system. Available on 48-inch and 72-inch models. 

  • On-The-Fly Adjustments: Hydraulic cylinders allow the operator to make adjustments on-the-fly using finger-tip controls from the comfort of the cab. Angle control can be used to direct spoil. Depth control can be used to quickly shave off high spots and fill in low spots. Available on 72-inch and 84-inch models. 

  • Tough Soils: For ripping through the toughest hardpan and richest clay soils, harness the additional horsepower of high-flow hydraulics, which provide tremendous torque to the drum. Increased drum torque creates a true powered box blade, delivering a smooth jobsite with fewer passes. Available on 72-inch and 84-inchmodels. 

Additional Details

To level and grade a surface, lock the drum for a box blade effect. Or place the drum in the float position to prepare the soil while following the contours of the terrain. The soil conditioner is a versatile, cost-effective attachment no landscaping crew should be without.

Pulverize the soil while leveling and filling in fewer passes with the soil conditioner attachment.
