Tandem Disc


Versatile tandem discs are built to handle trash and incorporate heavy residue. Utilizing a one of a kind floating hitch, Versatile tandem discs leave a more level finish when compared to competitive units. Versatile discs are also built using the best bearings in the industry, so you stay in the field until the job is done.

Model td500


The Versatile Model TD500N/ TD500 are excellent secondary tillage machines. With an average weight per foot of 500 lbs., (744 kg/m) they are available in either 8" or 9" (203, 230 mm) blade spacing and working widths ranging from 18' to 40 ' 6" (5.5 m - 12.3 m).

Model td600


The Versatile TD600/TD650 models are designed to be all purpose Tandem Discs capable of managing heavy crop residue or working up old pasture, slough bottoms or newly cleared land. Available in either 9" or 10.5" (230, 267 mm) spacing, they feature the industry's heaviest gang bearings, steel fabricated spools and a floating hitch.

Model td700


The Versatile TD700 is built to manage heavy crop residue such as corn, small grains stubble, potatoes or sugar beets or to work down pasture or hay land. With gangs torqued to 3200 ft-lbs and extreme-duty T2-215 bearings standard equipment the TD700 will perform well in the most demanding field conditions. Standard features like stone-flex hangers and a floating hitch help create a smooth field finish and prevent ridging or gouging.

Features


Standard Rigid Hanger

Heavy built rigid hangers hold strong in the most extreme conditions. The slimline hanger is contoured for maximum trash clearance. The TD500 and TD500N hangers are formed 5/8" steel, reinforced for additional strength. The TD600, TD600F and TD700 use hangers constructed from welded steel tubing. All hangers are U-bolt mounted to the gang beam for ease of adjustment or removal.

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.

Transport

Hydraulic lockout valves are supplied standard to prevent accidental operation of either the lift or wing cylinders when disc is being transported.

Staggered Front Gangs

Staggered, overlapping front gangs are standard and ensure that all soil at the center of the disc is cut out cleanly and evenly. Besides leaving a more level soil profile, this feature eliminates the need for a center shank or bulk buster normally supplied on most conventional tandems.

Removable Spindle Axles

Versatile tandem 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 tandem discs have furrow filler blades as standard equipment. Furrow filler blades are standard, the first 4" smaller than the working blades and the second 8" smaller. These blades along with full sizes blades work together to create a uniform well-worked field.

Hydraulic Lift System

Depth stop segments are supplied with each disc that clamp onto the main frame lift cylinder to ensure continuous same-depth tilling. Each of the wing frames can be easily leveled using a conveniently located eye-bolt adjustment. Cylinder arms on each of the rockshafts are equipped with replaceable hardened wear bushings for prolonged trouble free performance.

Tandem Walking Beam Assembly

Standard on the TD500, TD500F, TD600, TD600F and TD700. Walking beams provide for smoother travel over uneven surfaces and ensures even tire load since the weight is distributed evenly over all the main frame tires. Each walking beam pivots on an oversized hardened pivot axle against greasable, easily replaceable hardened steel bushings.

Interlocking Half Spools

This exclusive Versatile feature ensures that each bearing sleeve interlocks with adjoining half spools to provide positive drive to blades and reduces possibility of blades turing on the gang shaft. Optional with 26" blades, standard with 28" and larger (available on 10.5" and 12" spacing only).

Standard Stone-Flex Bearing Hangers

Standard Stone-Flex Bearing Hangers - additional protection to the gang bearings, blades and components comes from stone-flex hangers that are standard equipment on all Versatile tandem discs. With extreme side loads present on tandem disc gangs and the possibility of rocks in some areas, stone-flex hangers are perfect for absorbing shock loads. The C-shaped spring steel reacts to both vertical and horizontal shock loads and disc blade penetration is not compromised like it is with spring-loaded gang systems.
