New 8700 LTF
THE FARM KING 8700 AND 8700LTF WERE BUILT TO MANAGE HEAVY RESIDUE IN CORN, STUBBLE AND BEETS OR TO TURN PASTURE OR HAY FIELDS.
With gangs torqued to 3200 ft-lb and T2-215 bearings the 8700 will withstand almost anything. A full floating hitch creates a smooth level finish and prevents gouging. The 8700-LTF folds to a transport height of 14' 4" (4.4m).
Stone-flex hangers are standard equipment on Farm King tandem discs. They allow gangs to flex slightly side-to-side and up/ down to provide protection to the gang assemblies when impact is encountered while at the same time maintaining working depth.
8700/ 8700-LTF models use wide-pan style blade scrapers which are designed for larger sized blades: 26" and up. These scrapers contact lower down on the disc blades and scrape more surface area of the blade to provide more effective cleaning and prevent sticky material from building up on the blades. Scraper blades (tips) are laser cut from wear-resistant boron alloy steel and are replaceable.
STAGGERED FRONT GANGS
Staggered, overlapping front gangs are standard and ensure that all soil at the center of the disc is cut out cleanly and evenly eliminating the need for a center shank or bulk buster.
Standard hydraulic lockout valves prevent accidental operation of either the lift or wing cylinders when the disc is being transported. Low transport fold models 6650LTF and 8700LTF have a transport height of 14' 4" (4.4 m).
