The quality and durability you've come to expect from Versatile is now available in a new line of vertical tillage. Versatile tillage equipment has been proven over hundreds of thousands of acres and five decades of groundbreaking expertise have been used to develop the adaptable and rugged Versatile Viking.
Viking vertical tillage from Versatile is a true third generation machine that is designed to manage residue: it will cut/chop and size the most difficult residue in the most demanding ground and soil conditions while at the same time mixing the residue into the top 1" to 5" of soil. 0 to 16 degrees of adjustable gang angle allows the Viking to be setup to perform in a wide range of field and soil conditions - dry or wet, hard, rocky and any soil type to give you the field finish you need in the spring or fall.

Use a shallow angle to prepare a seedbed. Lightly tilling the soil cuts and spreads residue evenly. This mix of soil and residue promotes decay while nutrients are brought forward. The opened soil surface lets in air flow which allows excess moisture to escape as well as aiding in the warming of the seedbed to promote rapid emergence.
Use a more aggressive angle for maximum residue management. The Viking can be used ahead of or in place of primary tillage. It can also be used to clean up field edges, low spots, weed patches and ruts.
SoilRazor™ VT Blades
The Versatile Viking utilizes the SoilRazer™ VT blades with sawtooth edge. This heavy-duty blade stays sharp even as it wears due to its unique fluted design. The shallow concavity sawtooth blades cut and capture even the toughest residue. The SoilRazor delivers exceptional clod crushing abilities and actually becomes more aggressive as the cutting edge wears. When working in soft soil the SoilRazor penetrates deep to warm and dry the seedbed.
The Versatile Viking is available with either 8" or 9" spacing which is unique in the industry. 8" spacing results in residue being cut / sized into smaller pieces. 9" spacing is more suitable when higher amounts of residue are present or deeper working depth is desired.
All blades on the Versatile Viking are an impressive 1/4" (6.5 mm) thick, surpassing the industry standard of 1/5" (5 mm).
8" Spacing Machines:
Optional - 22"
9" Spacing Machines:
Optional - 24"
Every operation has its own unique set of conditions. The Versatile Viking provides many options and can be configured to best suit your specific needs. Varied results can be achieved by working shallow versus deeper, with smaller or wider blade spacing, smaller or larger blades, and by the angle of the gang.
