Heavy-Offset 790
Alll-Purpose heavy offset disk harrow, with 10.5 - 12 inch blade spacing and 28 - 32 inch blades, comes as an all-urpose offset or plowing disk to perform a wide array of soil-conditioning tasks.


Innovative Design

Case IH Heavy-Offset 790 disk harrows feature state-of-the-art engineering and construction. The machines offer unmatched ruggedness, dependability and consistent performance over years of use. All models are built with:

  • A mainframe of welded steel tubing
  • Square, steel, arbor bolts
  • Nodular iron spools
  • High-capacity bearings
  • Easy gang adjustments
  • Self-leveling hitch
  • Mechanical depth control


Nodular Iron Spools

Unlike steel-fabricated spools on other brands, Case IH cast nodular iron spools:

  • Resist compression up to 20 tons without loosening blades
  • Add greater blade support with bell-shaped design
  • Provide better residue flow with hourglass middle


High-Capacity Bearings

Flangent and Cushion Gang® bearings feature:

  • Finely ground inner rings
  • Heavy steel sleeves that distribute shock loads along the arbor bolt


All bearings are:

  • Regreasable for extended life
  • Triple sealed to repel debris and moisture


Easy Gang Adjustments

  • Gang angle: Adjustable from 34 – 46 degrees; Adjusts without tools
  • Rear gangs: Adjust laterally to changing field conditions; Line up with front gang furrows as desired
  • Easy-turning crank; Fine-tunes front-to-rear leveling


Self-leveling hitch

  • Exclusive to the Heavy-Offset 790 disk harrows
  • Keeps gangs working at uniform depth from front to rear
  • Transfers weight between tractor and disk
  • Allows even soil penetration on hills


Spring-cushioned hitch

  • Helps ease blades over obstructions


Convenient dial

  • Centers disk behind tractor
  • Minimizes draft
  • Adjusts by simply pulling pin and repositioning hitch


Mechanical depth control

  • Provides accurate, repeatable depth


Pin-type adjustment

  • Makes depth control convenient, quick and reliable
  • Eliminates risk of hydraulic leakage affecting disk depths
  • Repeatable accuracy


Earth Metal® Blades for Exceptional Endurance

All Case IH Heavy-Offset 790 disk harrows are equipped with Earth Metal blades. Uniquely formed and heat treated, Earth Metal blades offer exceptional endurance and break resistance for longer equipment life. The notched blades aggressively cut residue and vegetation with excellent cut uniformity.


Earth Metal® blades actually resharpen as they wear.

  • Provides superior cutting performance over an extended blade life
  • Helps prevent down time and maintenance labor
  • Lowers blade replacement cost

The performance of Earth Metal blades actually improves as they are used, while conventional blades lose their sharpness with wear.

Long-Life Durability

Compared to conventional blades under identical conditions, Earth Metal® blades:

  • Are 30% stronger
  • Last up to 20% longer
  • Resist stress fractures
  • Feature shallow-concavity design for easier pulling than conical or spherical blades and promotes better fuel economy
