Salford adds to its award-winning line-up with the RTS Heavy Duty

February 16, 2011

OSCEOLA, IA, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ – Nearly one year to the day since the
official launch of the RTS XT, Salford Farm Machinery Ltd. is once
again proving to be driven by innovation and design with the release of
the RTS Heavy Duty at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville,
KY
.

Building on the highly successful Residue Tillage Specialist (RTS)
Salford is launching the RTS Heavy Duty, adding a whole new dimension
to their series of vertical tillage tools.

“We always knew there was the potential for the RTS to till deeper and
boast more weight per blade,” says Salford General Manager, Geof Gray.
“Our engineers never shy away from a challenge. The RTS Heavy Duty
couldn’t come at a more relevant time for the industry.”

The addition to the RTS series comes when no-till producers, especially
corn producers, are struggling with tougher crop residues due to
today’s higher yielding plant genetics. The RTS Heavy Duty features a
heavier shank design and larger hubs for blade mounting. This allows it
to carry larger blades and coulters for deeper tillage, and more
aggressive residue resizing.

This new product release comes on the heels of being recognized with a
Farm Industry News 2011 FinOvation Award for the RTS XT. FinOvation
Award winners cover the spectrum of new products growers need for their
corn and soybean crops. Farm Industry News chose Salford’s RTS XT as
one of the most innovative agricultural products of 2010, based on
reader interest.

“Last year we announced we had the most aggressive vertical tillage tool
on the market,” says Jim Danielsen, National Sales Manager for Salford.
“Today we can honestly say that we’ve done it again. The RTS is like a
Swiss Army Knife for soil and we’ve just added another option to this
impressive machine.”

Salford’s RTS equipment can operate in high moisture conditions and can
be used in both spring and fall to incorporate cover crops, warm soil,
prepare seedbeds, manage and incorporate residue, chop stalks ahead of
primary tillage and release excess soil moisture.

Growers can see the RTS Heavy Duty up close and talk to Salford experts,
including Geof Gray and the Salford sales team, at 5036 at the upcoming
National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, KY.
