The Lemken Rubin can increase your efficiency in several ways. Firstly, the Rubin is a one pass tool that saves on fuel costs by not having to pass numerous times around your field to get the desired results. With the technology of the disc arrangement on the Rubin 12 (large discs with symmetrical arrangement) it enables the rows to work without lateral pull, even if you are driving on a slope. The space between the discs prevents clogging. The first row of discs are tilted outward at a 16 degree angle, while the second row are tilted inward, this staggering prevents any clogs and created a uniformly mixed result. For more information on the intelligent design of the discs that sets the Lemken Rubin apart from the competition, watch a video here.
Organic farmers have been enjoying the benefits of the Lemken Rubin because it will kill weeds without chemicals and it chops the first 4inches of ground, which does not disturb ground below that making it what some organic farmers are looking for. Just think of the fuel and labor costs you could save by only needing to go one pass around your field for the desired results you want for your soil? The savings are great for both you and the environment.
