Landside Root Cutter
These were optional items offered by John Deere to aid in plowing deep rooted crops such as alfalfa. Since the plow bottom only actually cuts around 90% of the total plowing width per bottom, the furrow slice normally 'breaks' away. With deep rooted plants like Alfalfa, it is imperative that all of the roots be severed to ensure the plants are killed.
The landside root cutter also aids in balancing out some of the pressure put against the moldboard that can lead the plow toward the unplowed land making it track crooked.
If you want you plow to STICK OUT from the crowd whether at a show or at Plow Day, these root cutters will fit the bill for you.
This high quality part is made in the USA from AR400 (abrasion resistant) steel that will scour easily and is long wearing. They simply bolt onto the plow landside using the two 1/2" diameter bolts that go through the standard. Bolts included on request. Price is $30 each.
