NEW FEATURE: Mole Knife
The Pluribus Strip-Till unit now has a
slim-shank mole knife adapter kit.
With this kit you remove your tillage coulter castings and install the knife and closer assembly. Your existing gauge wheels will double as a gathering closer.
You can adjust depth with the small, orange-handled hitch pin. This pin also functions as a shear bolt.
This assembly is recommended for fall use only.
This dry fertilizer tube will fit 2.5 in. hoses and blends dry product throughout the soil profile. This tube is for high output commodity carts and can accomodate several hundred pounds of product. It mounts on the opposite side of the row which aids in more thoroughly incorporating high rates of dry product.

Below are the side banding dry fertilizer tubes. These tubes run in the slots created by the two primary tillage coulters and are a good option if you apply high rates of dry urea.
This is a detail of the Pluribus "banding" liquid fertilizer tube. This setup is commonly used to band liquid in approximately a 4 x 4 placement relative to the center of the row. It is available for both the left and right hand side coulters. It cannot be used in conjunction with the NH3 tube.
Part No. 300348
Here is a detail of the Pluribus "incorporating" liquid injection tube. For 1/2 in. lines. This tubes,center mounted, placement allows the unit to thoroughly incorporate liquid into the profile of the soil, similar to it's treatment of dry fertilizer.

This photo is a closeup of the air bag down-pressure system, compactly mounted at the rear of the parallel linkage. It can generate from 0 to 600 lbs. of downforce. All pivot points on the Dawn Pluribus strip-till unit have replaceable synthetic bushings so there is never metal on metal wear. Use with a dedicated air system, or it may also be fitted with a standard Schrader valve for use with any portable air compressor.
Perhaps the most innovative strip-till closing system available, the swirl provides unparalled performance in the field. In addition to being a finishing tillage tool, the swirl also contributes to the thorough mixing of fertilizer into the profile of the strip. Soil is gathered in mid-air and directed up and in, forming a 1.5" to 2" parabolic berm.
As an alternative to our standard Trashweels configuration, you may want to consider our trailing-arm, floating Trashweels with adjustable air down pressure.
This current configuration is a functional system, however, we continue to explore a varitey of trailing-arm, floating Trashwheel configurations and we would be happy to discuss alternative adjustment methods if you are interested.
