    Disk blade options
  • The 2633 Dual-Purpose Disk comes equipped with front solid- or cutout-spherical blades and rear solid spherical disk blades with 230-mm (9-in.) spacing. The base blade size is 610 mm x 5 mm (24 in. x 0.197 in.).


    Available blade options for the 2633 are listed below.

    230-mm (9-in.) blade spacing230-mm (9-in.) blade spacing

    230-mm (9-in.) spacing, front and rear

    • Good for seedbed preparation and chemical incorporation in medium to heavy soils
    • Works well in primary tillage in light to medium soils
    • Provides good residue-handling capability


    • The number 1 edge has a beefier profile and is best for rocky conditions.
    • The number 10 edge has a narrower profile and should work well in most non-rock conditions.
    • Rear main and wing gangs are tapered with one blade 51 mm (2 in.) smaller than the primary blade.
    • Integral furrow filler blades are included with all rear wing gangs which are 102 mm (4 in.) smaller than the primary blade.
    • Front outer gangs have a taper that is 51 mm (2 in.) smaller than the primary blade, except for 560-mm (22-in.) disk blades.
    • The John Deere 2633 offers producers a rollable blade option. Rollable disk blades support the edge-rolling practices that are commonly used. These blades can be rolled to restore the edge sharpness for customers needing a better penetrating blade.
    • The special boron-composite material is capable of enduring the edge-rolling techniques without jeopardizing blade edge durability and longevity. John Deere does not recommend rolling disk blades that do not have this rollable designation.

    Hydraulic fore-aft leveling comes as standard equipment with John Deere's 2630 Series Disks. Operators can level the disk from the comfort of the tractor cab.

    As crop yields increase, so does the amount of residue after harvest. The John Deere 2623 and 2625 Disks provide operators with a disk that can be set to prepare a seedbed for planting or set to bury and size tough residue in primary tillage applications.

    Utilize the residue calculator to identity the optimal residue management solution to meet the producer’s needs.

    John Deere’s mechanical wing control helps producers keep their frames level for five-section disks. Mechanical wing control is included in base equipment for all five-section 2630 Series Disks.

    With this feature, a large spring is placed in the wing frame on each side of the disk. As the pivot point in the wing starts to raise, the spring presses against that point to keep the disk level through tough field conditions.

    The red circles below illustrate the area of the disk where the large spring is placed in the wing frame.

    Mechanical wing controlMechanical wing control

    John Deere’s mechanical wing control is an industry-exclusive feature. A five-section disk without mechanical wing control can show up to 75-mm (3-in.) of depth inconsistency across the wing frame.

  • John Deere’s 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage Implements feature extended-life bearings. These more durable and reliable bearings allow producers to customize bearing maintenance for specific growing conditions and soil types.

    The flange-mounted bearing and sealing system features improved contamination resistance. The advanced seal material is highly resistant to wear and damage caused by abrasive soils and other crop materials. The design of these are more durable and reliable than previous bearings.

    The design of this bearing system allows for dynamic self-alignment to the gang bolt, as opposed to trunnion-mounted bearings that have limited alignment capability. This system features additional freedom of movement, accommodating a wider variety of field conditions. The bearing system has been designed to decrease stress and fatigue on the inner rolling surfaces, supporting extended bearing life.

    The bearing and seal design allows for a limited, seasonal maintenance interval to minimize downtime. They also allow producers to customize the maintenance for specific growing conditions and soil types. The multi-lipped sealing system cannot be damaged by frequent greasing. It allows bearings to accept grease within the bearing as well as provide grease to the outer bearing surface to eliminate wear between the bearing and housing. With this design, the bearings can accept grease even if misaligned to the housing.

    The 2630 Series Disks offer multiple upgrades and new items as options versus the 2620 Series Disks to enhance the machine. Check out the following video sharing more about the new 2630 Series Disks.

    Extended-life bearings

    John Deere’s 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage Implements feature extended-life bearings. These more durable and reliable bearings allow producers to customize bearing maintenance for specific growing conditions and soil type.

    TruSet™ side-to-side feature

    John Deere TruSet system is featured in base equipment for the 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage Implements. TruSet side-to-side is also available and features individual section leveling.

    Knife-edge hydraulic rolling basket

    The hydraulic rolling basket is now offered with a round bar, flat bar, or knife-edge. The knife-edge is best for heavier, wet soil, and can be used in rocky conditions.

    Radial tires

    The 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage Implements feature radial tires for the mainframes in base equipment. Radial tires are available as an option on the wing frame and stabilizer wheels. These tires are designed to offer longer wear life and help minimize compaction with a wider plate and lower inflation pressures.

    Stabilizer wheels

    Producers can choose either mechanical stabilizer wheels or TruSet hydraulic stabilizer wheels as an option. Stabilizer wheels help to maintain a consistent, level depth and are recommended for operation on rolling ground. The mechanical stabilizer wheels can be manually adjusted with a turnbuckle. TruSet with side-to-side leveling capabilities also enables operators to control the TruSet hydraulic stabilizer wheels from the cab while on the go.
