Case IH Ecolo-Tiger 530C Disk Ripper

Double tap to zoom


The Ecolo-Tiger® 530C features are field-tested, proven tools recently improved with more than 23 design updates.
•Smoother residue flow due to increased mainframe length, added clearance, and increased rank between front and rear disks
•Increased strength
•Improved load ratings
•24-in. (610-mm)-diameter, shallow-concavity blades improving residue cutting and enhancing soil penetration capability

Shanks and Points for Superior Soil Tilth
•Massive 1.5x6-in. (38x152-mm) parabolic shanks and Tiger® points increase soil tilth
•Improve water and nutrient absorption
•Produce better stands and higher yields
•Ecolo-Tiger 530C, 5-shank requires 175–240 PTO hp (131–179 kW)


We Have Residue Management Down to a Perfection

Case IH disk rippers help you cut, size and mix crop residue to reduce erosion and increase production capacity. This effective crop residue management allows you to:

  • Increase organic-matter content in the soil
  • Provide a soil/residue mixture that allows moisture to penetrate the subsoil faster
  • Decrease erosion through improved porosity and drainage


BT Residue Tool

With the adoption of Bt hybrids, you need aggressive disk components capable of cutting and mixing the tougher stalks. The Case IH Ecolo-Tiger® 875 tackles Bt residue with:

  • 24-in. (610-mm) individual disks or optional, huge, 26-in. (660-mm) cushion gang® disks
  • 12-in. (304-mm) spacing between gang disks
  • A split-the-middle gang position front to back
  • Reduces stalk size for improved flow and better mixing


Earth Metal Blades

The Ecolo-Tiger® 530C, 730C and 875 are fitted with Earth Metal® blades, which feature:

  • Shallow concavity
  • A crimped center
  • A 24-in. (610-mm) diameter
  • Patented index position relative to the shanks


Conser-Till Unique Features

The Case IH Conser-Till® 690 mulch-till ripper manages crop residue with the industry’s shallowest-concavity disk blades in the front of the machine. This unique design offers:

  • Superior soil penetration
  • Excellent residue cutting and flow without throwing soil beyond the machine
  • Erosion-stopping residue stays on top of the soil

The 12-in. (304-mm) spacing and 6-in. (152-mm)-diameter, slim-center cast spools allow for consistent output in the heaviest residue and soil conditions.


50/50 Is Our Idea of Ideal Soil Composition

Ideal soil composition — known as soil tilth — is 50 percent soil and 50 percent pore space, with water and air equally distributed within the pore space. Soil compaction eliminates this needed pore space and is a common yield-robbing culprit. It can be caused by:

  • Numerous passes of heavy equipment
  • Planting early in wet soil
  • The hydraulic effect of heavy rains
  • Repetitive conventional/traditional tillage at the same depth
  • Varying soil textures throughout a field
  • Lack of crop rotation


Controlling Compaction

Proper primary tillage using a Case IH disk ripper effectively fractures compaction to:

  • Increase soil tilth
  • Allow vigorous root development
  • Promote better stands and higher-yielding plants
  • Warm soils faster and more evenly for earlier spring planting
  • Increase water absorption
  • Reduce ponding


Patented Tiger Points

Patented Case IH Tiger® points, featured on all Case IH disk rippers, have wings that extend downward, rearward and outward.


This revolutionary design creates a “lift, twist and roll” action that:

  • Shatters compaction
  • Relocates soil particles
  • Creates an open, mellow, healthier soil with excellent pore space and distribution
  • Allows for maximum soil tilth


Optional Lead Shanks

The Case IH Ecolo-Tiger® 530C and 730C disk rippers can be fitted with optional lead shanks to prefracture the soil ahead of the main ripping shanks. The addition of this option:

  • Enhances tillage
  • Reduces clod size
