Adjustable discs allow you to increase tilling power to reduce the number of passes required saving you time. An optional wheel kit provides disc depth precision, and our grading mat can be used to even the soil before and after planting to provide seeds with necessary soil contact.

Z-TECH AUTOMATED LITTER REMOVAL

Modern Scraping Technology
Raising livestock is rewarding, but time consuming. Especially certain tasks like cleaning the stalls. Our 605 Scraper Drive System makes life a little easier by taking care of manure in a safe, clean way – and all on its own. With little input, this equipment will remove litter and waste from buildings without disturbing your livestock.

Sanitation Made Simple
Our Z-Tech system will run on command or all by itself on a set timer. For people who want to see the scraper in action, they can manually turn it on and watch it go. For people on a tight schedule, all it takes is setting the timer once and it’ll operate automatically.

Keeping livestock in hygienic conditions reduces the risk of disease, and makes for happier, healthier animals. Whether your livestock building needs to be cleaned once a day, or five times a day, the Z-tech timer will automatically operate on whatever you set.
