Offset Disc


Versatile offset discs are available in weight classes ranging from 550 lb/ft to 1050 lb/ft. Designed to be stronger and last longer Versatile discs feature extreme-duty bearings and optional interlocking 1/2 spools and the industry's strongest, tightest gangs with steel fabricated spools torqued to an impressive 3,200 ft-lb.

Model SD550


The Versatile SD550 is an all-purpose offset disc that weighs in the 550 lbs per foot weight class. It is an all purpose machine that provides the flexibility of doing either primary or secondary tillage work. The SD550 is available in either 9" or 10.5" blade spacing with 24" or 26" blades.

Model SD650


The model SD650 Versatile offset is an excellent primary tillage tool. Designed for forage breaking and heavy residue this disc is perfect for all agricultural applications and light industrial work. The SD650 is available in working widths from 10' to 20' and choice of 10.5" or 12" blade spacing

Model SD750


The Versatile SD750 Offset Disc has the same 8" x 4" x 3/8" (203 x 102 x 9 mm) steel tube frame as the SD650, but with ballast for extra weight, the SD750 is ready for serious work. All this weight and strength combines for a 361 lb (164 kg) average weight per blade. Available in 12" (305 mm) blade spacing with a floating hitch standard equipment.

Model SD1050


The Versatile SD1050 is a heavy-duty disc designed for heavy construction and mining applications and the most demanding agricultural jobs. The SD1050 features a floating hitch to ensure a smooth level finish on all jobs. Available in 9-1/2' to 15-1/2' widths the SD1050 comes with a standard 14" blade spacing.

Features


Standard Rigid Hanger

The Versatile SD550 disc is an all-purpose offset that provides operators the flexibility of a primary or secondary tillage piece. The SD550 is available in 9" or 10.5" spacing and allows operators to manage corn stalks and heavy residue, as well as, break hay fields and heavy pasture. The SD550 can also prepare a smooth seed bed for planting.

Blade Scrapers

All Versatile discs feature one piece, 4" wide blade scrapers made of carbon steel for long wear life. The scrapers are U-bolt mounted for maximum adjustment on a heavy-duty tubular steel bar. All scrapers are located high end to the inside of the blade for maximum trash flow and to reduce draft requirements. This eliminates the need for trash guards.

Adjustable Gang Angle

Versatile offset discs allow operators to change the angle of cut between three (two on the SD1050) different positions. This causes the disc to cut with more or less aggressive discing action. Soil conditions such as residue or trash levels, moisture, etc. change from year to year and only a disc with adjustable gang angle will perform well in all these different types of conditions.

Positive Depth Control

A 5-1/2" heavy-duty rockshaft, in greaseable bearings, is the foundation of the single offset disc‘s depth control system. A single cylinder with positive depth control segments provides consistent and repeatable working depth. An adjustable crank allows the operator to regulate the balance of pressure on both front and rear gangs.

Removable Spindle Axles

Versatile offset discs are built with maintenance concerns in mind. All spindle axles are designed for easy removal and maximum strength. Each spindle is bolted into a sleeve and can be removed by simply removing the bolt and pulling out the axle. This will save valuable time if repairs to a tire are needed.

Steel Fabricated Spools

Versatile discs feature fabricated steel half and full spools. Unlike cast iron spools, steel spools can withstand far greater “shock loads” from rocks or stumps thereby eliminating spool breakage. Compressed to maximum density prior to assembly, Versatile’s fabricated spools ensure the gang will not shift and become loose.

Large Gang Shaft

All Versatile discs feature a large 1-15/16" diameter, high carbon steel gang shaft. This gang shaft along with Versatile’s steel fabricated spools allows the gang assembly to be torqued at the factory to 3200 ft/lb.

Furrow Filler Blades

In order to get the most uniform and consistent field finish, Versatile offset discs have furrow filler blades as standard equipment. On larger working widths two furrow fillers are standard, one 4" smaller than the working blades and one 8" smaller, (only one furrow filler is used on model SD1050). On smaller working widths one furrow filler blade 4" smaller that the working blades is standard. These blades along with full sizes blades work together to create a uniform well-worked field.

Options


Stone Flex Hanger

For those who want additional protection flex hangers are available as an option. With the extreme thrust forces present on a disc and potential for large rocks in some areas, the stone flex hanger is a perfect choice for absorbing shock loads. The 1-1/4" x 2-1/2" C-shaped spring steel reacts to both vertical, but more importantly, horizontal forces. Disc blade penetration is not compromised.

Pan-Style Scrapers

Available on models SD550 and SD650, pan-style scrapers contact lower down on the disc blade to provide more effective cleaning and prevent sticky soil from building up. As a result, blades cut cleaner and draft is lighter. Scraper material is a boron alloy steel for enhanced wear characteristics. All scrapers are adjustable individually or as a group for optimum field performance.

Disc Blades

Quality disc implements start with quality blades. All Versatile discs feature the latest technology in micro alloy boron steel blades that combine the important performance characteristics of superior breakage - with long wearing abrasion resistant hardness.
