Another product that Show Me Shortline offers is the Lemken tillage line. The Lemken Rubin 9 and Rubin 12 are one pass tillage machines, meaning one time only is needed with this machine to do the job you need done. When we talk about being ecofriendly, the amount of gas you can reduce and resources used by only needing to pass once around the field can be very desirable.
SMS participated at the Sydenstricker Field Days in and around Mexico, Missouri this week with the Lemken Rubin 9 and Rubin 12. The response was extremely positive with Lemken having the ability to disturb and incorporate soil and corn stalk residues in the Rock Hard soils in Audrain County (Missouri) due to drought conditions.
At another field day in Elsberry, MO the machines performed well in much wetter conditions at a much shallower depth due to un-chopped corn stalks and extremely moist soil conditions. With Lemken offering a notched blade with speed it chops stalks and distributes soil and residue very uniformly with leaving over 50% soil coverage on stalk residue for decomposing over winter months. SMS along with Sydenstricker Imp. have set-up demoӒs from participating at Field days.- Mark Wells of Show Me Shortline said after the field day.
Many positive comments have come about in regards to LemkenԒs notched discs, which height and angle rebound harrows that are adjustable, allowing you to control the soil flow. Another feature people like is the Lemkens open frame design which allows for large clearances and guarantees a blockage free operation even when high amounts of organic mass are present. Lemken RubinҒs are highly suitable for shallow, reliable stubble cultivation at high working speeds.
