Disc Harrows & Tillage - Heavy Duty Subsoiler

The new 3-point heavy duty subsoilers from Dirt Dog® are the right tool for you when breaking up a hardpan developed over years of heavy use. Compacted soil can hurt you in two ways: plant roots cannot penetrate into the lower levels of the soil to tap additional nutrients and, in wet conditions, the excess water cannot drain away…both effects weaken your plants and reduce your yields. The new HDSS model subsoilers from Dirt Dog® are available in four configurations, single or double shank with either short or long shank, capable of ripping the soil to depths ranging from 19 inches to 23 inches depending on the shank length. In certain areas, these subsoilers can be used to install water lines at depths suitable to get below the frost line. The edge of the high carbon steel shank, combined with a heat-treated replaceable plow point, allow you to cut through the soil with minimal ground disturbance; shear pin protection is provided. When you need to go deep…the Dirt Dog® HDSS subsoilers get the job done for you. Nothing beats a Dirt Dog®!
