    Have you guys thought of using your flex fronts for harvesting the down and tangled corn? I have harvested corn with just a conventional front in corn and it works very well . The cross anger may have to be raised to cope with stalks though.

      Morning. New to the channel as well. My brother in laws and nephew do a lot of sorghum and beans. Directly after that they will run what they call a vertical till. Looks like a disk but not as aggressive of an angle on the front and rear sets of blades then pulled behind that is a rolling basket or harrow. Soil management is big in our area here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with the Chesapeake Bay watershed. I really enjoy your work. Rick C.

            Let's just ignore the fact that the 2680H is a Norwood Kwiktill painted green and see some real high speed disks like a Lemken Rubin 12.

                            I could not believe it when I heard you say “NOTCH JOHNSON”, then I said no way he’s talking about Son Of The Beach! That was awesome. Long time STERN fan here!!
                            I’m not a farmer, I don’t even have a garden, just an electrician from southern Maryland. We have a bunch of farm land around us but nothing like what you guys have, pretty cool stuff. GREAT VIDEOS, enjoying watching all you guys do

                                So are you going to buy that green Protill hahaa. We have a 20ft protill and its amazing to use cleaning up sloughs, ruts, working grass land up, etc.

                                  "There is no tool on the market that that you can cover as much ground and do as much residue management in one pass as this tool." Come on, really. They obviously completely ripped off Degelman. Degelman has had this same exact tool for over 5 years. And now John Deere comes out and says they invented it? Same with the RX track systems. John Deere spent 20 years telling people 2 tracks are better than 4 (John Deere even stole the 2 track idea from Caterpillar) and as soon as Case IH's quadtrack patent runs out, John Deere releases the 9rx saying it's groundbreaking technology. I am getting sick of John Deere stealing other companies ideas, calling them their own, and saying they are the only ones on the market with this equipment. They've been doing this for years.

                                    In all seriousness, I think Lemken's been doing these the longest. I think I remember seeing these when I was in Europe back in '12, or maybe it was '13. I think there's one in FS15, too.
