Flex your muscles the next time you’re working ground with a J&M Torsion-Flex Soil Conditioner. The double twist basket design features a torsion-flex arm that maintains proper ground tension and allows the basket to flex over uneven terrain. The result is a more consistent performance that levels and finishes the soil in one pass, which prepares a more uniform seed bed composed of finer soil at planting depth to help retain proper moisture and large particles on top to reduce crusting.
Cross-Folding Wing Design creates a lower profile and narrower width for greater visibility, making farm to farm transport easier
Turn-Buckle design maximizes transport ground clearance... regardless of the hitch height.
Hinge areas feature oversized folding cylinders, heavy duty over-center linkage plates and extra-thick, reinforced hinges with large 1 3/4” diameter pins.
Deluxe Light Kit with SMV Emblem.
Optional Wing Wheels
Optional wing wheels utilize phasing cylinders that allow the unit to lift and lower evenly.
The offset dual basket design creates unequal downward pressure between the front and rear baskets. With less downward pressure, the front basket works the top of the soil and allows the baskets to ‘walk-over’ rocks and foreign debris and reduce the chance of wash boarding, while the rear basket more aggressively penetrates the soil for maximum conditioning, residue and chemical mixing.
Double Twist Baskets
The new Double Twist™ baskets by J&M feature a 2 to 1 slat design, providing ultimate ground contact for smoother rolling. This reduces the chance of “wash boarding” and prepares the field for maximum seed to soil contact and germination. The flat end and open center design reduces the chance of rock, mud and debris build-up. The heavy-duty 13” or 16” baskets are made with tall, 3/8” thick steel slats for maximum durability.
The heavy-duty flange bearings with triple-lip has a better seal and resists dirt and residue contamination in high speed, high usage applications. This bearing is standard equipment on all J&M Torsion-Flex conditioners but optional on some competitor’s models.
The heavy-duty GBGI bearing upgrade features a sealed, cast hub style housing with double roller bearings for extra durability to handle more side thrust and a heavier workload. The rubber sealed hub caps and 3 piece “v seal” are optimal for keeping dirt and contamination away from the bearings during high speed usage. Snap rings hold the seals in place while allowing the bearings to be serviceable at a lower cost than replacing the entire assembly.
