EXPERIENCE SALFORD 8200 Tandem flex-trail plow

Salford 9800 Disc Ripper Harrow

Every Salford plow uses durable frames with 8”x8” main beams that are built to last. The industry leading under frame and fore-aft clearance means your Salford plow is almost impossible to plug, keeping you in the drivers seat to cover more acres per hour.

Be Ready For Fall Tillage!

The Salford 9800 Disc Ripper Harrow is designed to go deep and stay deep. Where other disc rippers and tillage tools often ride up and over tough obstacles in the soil profile, the 9800’s weight and 6”x8”main frame keep this machine at depth to break up compacted soil.

In Stock! RTS, Plows, Disk Rippers
