The 2430 chisel plow now includes the TrueSet precision depth control system, radial tyres and a rear hitch, differentiating it from the 2410 model it replaces.

John Deere says the 2430 chisel plow provides better soil breaking and levelling performance, especially in rocky or wet terrain. The plow has been designed to handle tough soils and heavy crop residue while providing operators with more control of tillage depth and seedbed finish across a range of paddock conditions.

"The new 2430 chisel plow builds on many important features of the 2410 chisel plow," John Deere tillage product marketing manager Jarred Karnei says.

"This includes the addition of John Deere’s exclusive TruSet depth and down pressure control system on base equipment and a wide choice of ground-engaging points, spacings and attachments that allow customers to configure the implement to best fit their paddock-specific soil and residue conditions."

The TruSet system gives operators on-the-go shank depth control from within the cab in 0.254mm increments across the entire width of the plow as it works the soil. TruSet also provides up to 6205kPa down-pressure control of rolling baskets as soil conditions change.

The rolling baskets have hardened steel ‘knife-edges’ to handle rocky paddocks and internal basket scrapers that prevent the baskets from plugging in wet conditions. John Deere says the rolling baskets provide optimal field preparation for maximum soil firming, clod breakup and seedbed levelling.

The 2430 chisel plow is available in various sizes and configurations, depending on user needs. This includes rigid frame models with 3.56-5.28m working widths; drawn rigid fold models with working widths from 5.3-6.25m; 3-section drawn flex C-shank models with working widths from 6.65-13.1m, and 5-section drawn flex C-shank models with operating widths from 13.4-19.2m.

"Like the 2410 chisel plows, the new 2430 models are built using high-strength steel tubing that provides the superior structural integrity customers have come to expect from John Deere chisel plows," Karnei adds.

"These tillage tools are built to provide years of excellent residue incorporation and soil mixing essential to start the nutrient cycling for next year’s crop."
