Ecolo Tiger 875
Striking the right balance between soil tilth, crop residue and seedbed consistency is easier with the new Case IH Ecolo-Tiger® 875. As the most aggressive disk ripper on the market, the Ecolo-Tiger 875 offers excellent residue flow in high-yielding Bt corn stalks thanks to aggressive disk-cutting power, high underframe clearance and minimum 36-inch spacing between points.
The Ecolo-Tiger 875 represents the 8th generation of Ecolo-Tigers, a tradition which began in 1978. With the development of the 875 model, Case IH experts invested five years of intense agronomic research in five states, analyzing five million data points, all with an eye to clearly understanding the field factors likely to impact yield. The Case IH team learned that by better managing residue, soil fracture and most importantly the size of holes and clods left behind, yield potential could be significantly improved. Large holes can collect water, and in combination with large clods they increase the variability in the field, making accurate seed placement at planting impossible. Based on the research findings, as many as 3,000 plants per acre, or 7 to 10 percent of the total stand could be lost to poor seedbed conditions.
Adapt In Adverse Conditions
One outcome of this research, the Case IH patented double-edge reel, sizes any remaining large clods and levels the soil more to eliminate lost yield potential. In the new Ecolo-Tiger 875, the double-edge reel has a hydraulic option, allowing producers to position the reel from the cab. This best-in-class option allows operators to float over wet spots in the field by raising the basket. It provides level output over varying soil types for improved seed beds and resists plugging in wet conditions. Other rear options include a mechanical-positioned double-edge reel; a 5-bar spike harrow; and a 3-bar coil-tine harrow.
Like its predecessor, the Ecolo-Tiger 875 efficiently sizes and mixes tough, heavy residue, while leveling the soil for a smooth seedbed. Case IH engineers equipped this new model with redesigned high density Tiger points for improved durability while maintaining the lift, twist and roll action that is an Ecolo-Tiger and Tiger point hallmark. This action not only fractures compaction, but also works to relocate soil particles for superior soil tilth. In addition, Earth Metal® blades are now standard equipment on both gang and individual disk blade models.
An aquant powder coat paint finish adds even more durability to the Ecolo-Tiger 875 with 400 percent more resistance to impact, scratching and paint fading vs. prior models. This paint finish is the result of Case IH’s expansion of its Goodfield, Ill., plant, which allowed for the addition of a multistage auto deposition primer dip paint system with a powder topcoat. Customers benefit from an even more rugged red paint finish that looks better rolling off the factory line, lasts throughout the life of the disk ripper and improves resale value.
The Ecolo-Tiger 870 is built to last:
250-hour service interval for simple maintenance:
The Ecolo-Tiger 870 output allows for faster, shallower spring field operations resulting in high Net Effective Stands and higher yield potential.
Optional, patented, double-edged reels are exclusive to the Ecolo-Tiger 870.
Excellent Option For Smaller Tractors
The Ecolo-Tiger® 530C and 730C features are field-tested, proven tools recently improved with more than 23 design updates.
The Conser-Till® 690 mulch-till ripper provides a unique package of conservation-tillage features to break up compaction while keeping crop residue on the surface:
These features provide superior performance without the speed sensitivity of other-brand machines. Two working widths are available:
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:
Case IH disk rippers give you the flexibility to finish the field to match your farming practices. Creating a first-pass soil surface that settles level prior to secondary tillage and planting:

Crumbler 160 Optional Attachment
The Case IH Crumbler® 160 seedbed finisher can be attached to any Case IH disk ripper for:
Use a Case IH disk level’r™ to evenly distribute soil and residue across the soil surface.
The disk level’r on Ecolo-Tiger® 530C and 730C models has been strengthened for longer life and features on-the-go hydraulic adjustment.
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:
Proper primary tillage using a Case IH disk ripper effectively fractures compaction to:
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:
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:
