Features

TruPosition™ standards deliver 91 kg (200 lb) of trip force for consistent depth and even cut
TruPosition standardsTruPosition standards
TruPosition standard componentsTruPosition standard components

Producers are working ground at faster speeds and in tighter soil conditions, requiring more from standards and frames.

The 91-kg (200-lb) trip TruPosition standards include:

  • Heat-treated mounting bracket
  • Cast pivot assembly with front stop
  • 19-mm x 45-mm x 610-mm (3/4 x 1-3/4 x 24-in.) C-shank, retained by a bolt through the casting and U-bolt—ensures consistent sweep depth, level seedbeds in all secondary conditions, and thoroughly incorporated chemicals
  • 610-mm (24-in.) underframe clearance provides extra room for excellent residue flow on 229-mm (9-in.) spacing
  • 254-mm (10-in.) trip height (at shank) clears rocks and obstacles
  • Replaceable split-tension sleeve and chrome bushing extend life of standard and implement

These standards provide 91 kg (200 lb) of trip force and enable producers to maintain a consistent sweep depth. A combination of spring pressure and pivot casting geometry minimizes side-to-side movement and provides the ultimate in soil profile and seedbed.

At 16-km/h (10-mph) working speeds, the 2330 Mulch Finisher can cover up to 27.5 hectares (68 acres) per hour enabling producers to size their implements for their unique productivity and agronomic needs.

The 2330 is available in sizes ranging from 6.6 to 17.2 m (21 ft, 9 in. to 56 ft, 3 in.). Horsepower requirements range from 24.5 to 34.2 kW/m (10 to 14 hp-ft), depending on the soil, depth, and speed.

The producer can work ground faster with the 2330's 508-mm x 5-mm (20-in. x 0.197-in.) low-concavity disk blades and outside blades tapered to 457 mm (18 in.):

  • Allows aggressive cutting action
  • Minimizes ridging

Blades are spaced 184-mm (7.25-in.) apart and are fixed at an 8-degree gang angle:

  • Results in effective slicing in heavy residue
  • Moves the soil inward toward the center of the implement for a level seedbed

C-spring cushion gangs help protect against rocks and other obstructions in the field. Dura-Flex™ (3+1) bearings are standard equipment:

  • Triple lip on the inner race and a wide seal between the outer race and flange prevents soil from entering between the bearings and flanges, and helps retain lubrication in the bearings
  • Greaseable for long life

All disk gangs feature combination rigid/self-adjusting scrapers as standard equipment:

  • Prevent soil buildup on inside of disk blades
  • Adjustable to compensate for wear
  • Self-adjusting operation—the spring tension helps hold the scrapers against the disk blade in sticky soil conditions

Engaged disk gangs add to the stability of the implement at higher ground speeds for consistent working depth in uneven ground.

  • Allow for good weed kill and tilling
  • Provide excellent chemical incorporation
Level-lift™ frame ensures even operation through all operating depths

The Level-lift hitch ensures a level operation through all operating depths. It also provides consistent gang and sweep depth fore to aft for thorough seedbed preparation. This quick, easy adjustment ensures a flat seedbed floor and level soil profile for planting.

The combination of the disk gang, sweep, and harrow functions promotes consistent and uniform chemical placement and mixing. The T-hitch enables easy turnbuckle adjustment for fast tractor changeover and quick implement leveling fore to aft.

The heavy-duty T-hitch allows for tighter turning, decreasing the amount of headlands required for quick turns on the end. The T-hitch also houses the hoses and wiring harness, protecting them from crop and incidental tire contact.

Tillage documentation and prescription functionality included with TruSet™ Tillage system

With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, 2330 Mulch Finisher operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature will give producers the ability to capture and analyze the mulch finisher pass for additional coverage of the crop production cycle. Prescription functionality provides producers the capability to ensure their tillage operations are executed correctly, optimizing their investment in preparing for the next crop.

Operators can document data for the depth of their mulch finisher disks and sweeps along with rolling basket down pressure. By creating an as-applied map based off of global positioning system (GPS) data for the job performed by each functional area on the implement, TruSet enables producers to document their tillage pass then later review and analyze the data for future agronomic decisions.

Additionally, the Prescription Creator by Agrian® company, a connected partner tool through the John Deere Operations Center, enables producers to create prescriptions for each functional area on the 2330 Mulch Finisher. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that will command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.

True 229-mm (9-in.) split-the-middle spacing provides complete field coverage
229-mm (9-in.) spacing229-mm (9-in.) spacing

Thanks to an updated frame design that enables true 229-mm (9-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing, the 2330 Mulch Finishers can maintain consistent depth and evenly cover the field to achieve an optimal seedbed while flowing residue and managing weeds.

Seedbed preparation

Even at high speeds and in tough field conditions, the TruPosition C-shanks with 91 kg (200 lb) of trip force minimize side-to-side movement and provide the operator better control of the soil profile for improved leveling capabilities.

These shanks provide a full tillage cut across the entire width of the implement. The shanks stay firmly planted in tough soils without quickly relieving. As a result, the soil is mixed completely and streaks are reduced. This helps producers maximize their productivity and create flat seedbeds for smooth planter operation and consistent seed depth.

Weed management

The even 229-mm (9-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing enables the 2330 Mulch Finisher to minimize the potential of remaining strips of weeds that survive the tillage pass. With a mulch finisher pass just prior to planting/seeding, the crop can emerge into a weed-free field that gives it the best chance to reach canopy ahead of the weeds.

If some weeds emerge and a post-emergence herbicide is needed, weeds should be smaller and easier to control. As a result, the mulch finisher pass helps keep weed management costs under control and helps preserve crop yield potential.
