Hydraulic wing control and gauge
Hydraulic wing control is standard equipment on all Frontier™ TM51 Series Tandem Disk Harrows. A control valve allows varying hydraulic pressure to the wing-fold cylinders. It transfers weight from the mainframe to the wings to improve penetration in hard ground and/or heavy soils. Increasing pressure to the rod end of the cylinder holds the wing level to prevent gouging in soft or moist soils.
The pressure relief feature allows wings to flex over obstacles to help prevent damage to the cylinder rod. Convenient knob adjustment can be easily reached from the front of the disk. The indicator gauge provides the operator with a quick visual indication of the results of the adjustment.
NOTE: Requires a tractor with closed-center hydraulics. Operators must follow special operating instructions per the operator's manual.
