SPS365 Spoil Prep System

SPS365 Soil Prep System™Bourgault Tillage

 

A Better Approach To Seedbed Preparation


The Bourgault SPS365 Soil Prep System™ is a primary tillage system designed to size and incorporate residue into the soil, yet maintain a firm seedbed for subsequent seeding implements. This approach preserves a portion of the previous year's root structure and standing stubble which helps to protect the soil from erosion and young plants from wind damage.

How Does the SPS365™ Compare?


It's important to do your homework in order to make the right choice for a seedbed preparation system.

Compare with the Competition

It's important for Producers to do their homework in order to make the right choice for a seedbed preparation system. With the volume of (often conflicting) information available on soil prep systems, it is easy to get confused.

After Harvest: Fields may be left with excessive straw and chaff lying on top of the soil

After Harvest Fields may be left with excessive straw and chaff lying on top of the soil, particularly where crops were lodged. If the soil is excessively wet and has deep ruts left from the harvest operation, Producers have the added challenge of preparing the seedbed for the following seeding season.


Compact Disc/Tandem Disc: Implements that include opposing gangs of curved discs set at an angle to direction of travel flip the soil, effectively blackening the field and removing any ruts.

The Compact Disk/Tandem Disk Implement is made up of opposing gangs of curved disks angled to the direction of travel that, when engaged, flip the soil, effectively blackening the field and removing ruts. Because the soil has been fully conditioned above the buried field residue, there is little resistance to prevent buried field residue from catching on a hoe opener, as well, coulter drills are prone to hair-pinning with the mat of buried field residue.


Vertical Tillage: Definitions vary in the industry, but it is generally described as a process of fracturing the soil with minimal horizontal movement.

Vertical Tillage is generally described as a process of fracturing the soil with minimal horizontal movement. Heavy residue tends to be difficult to deal with as the straw will hair-pin in the cuts made by the implement, or wrap around the shanks. As well, little soil movement means little reduction of surface residue or field ruts.


Bourgault SPS365: The sized residue has been well mixed through the worked soil prior to leveling & packing.

With the Bourgault SPS365™ the sized residue has been well mixed into the worked soil prior to leveling and packing. A “wave” profile of unworked soil left by the shank openers provides additional support for seeding systems to maintain a consistent seed depth. In addition, a percentage of the previous year's root structure and stubble is preserved to protect young plants from erosion and wind damage.

SPS365™ Sections


The SPS Soil Prep Systems use a combination ground engaging sections to prepare the soil: Coulters, Shanks, Harrows, Finishing Sections

The SPS365 Soil Prep System™ is made up of:
  1. Cutting Coulters;
  2. Heavy-Duty Hydraulic Shanks;
  3. 3-Bar Mounted Harrows; and,
  4. Rolling Baskets.

The various tillage sections of the Soil Prep System can be individually set or parked up, depending on the conditions encountered.

Designed For The Extremes


Incorporating heavy straw while also breaking up clumps and re-leveling

The SPS365™ is designed to distribute and incorporate heavy straw while also breaking up clumps and re-leveling and firming the soil. The ability to engage any combination of sections allows Producers to tailor the operation to match specific conditions.

* the SPS365 Soil Prep System™ produces excellent results in a single-pass through most field conditions.


The 6'' x 4'' frame incorporates durable and robust strength.

Designed for the Extremes The SPS365™ is durably designed, incorporating a robust frame comprised of heavy 6" x 4" frame for outstanding strength.


The Parallel arms and rear walking axles increase strength and obstacle clearance

Parallel Arm Front Casters and Rear Walking Axles increase strength and obstacle clearance.


Large tires provide good floatation and reduce rolling resistance in wet/soft ground.

Large, 21.5 x 16.1 Tires provide good flotation and reduced rolling resistance over wet/soft ground (mainframe rear tires are 16.5 x 16.1 for improved load rating).


Fertilizer Application Kits

Fertilizer Application Kits for 6 and 8 port systems are available, Producers can also install aftermarket liquid or NH3 application kits.
