Not a disc chain, a speed tiller, an offset disc or a stubble cutter – but a combination of all
A fully adjustable tillage implement Ajust-a-bar®, is used in agriculture to as an alternative to disc chains and stubble cutters. It is used for secondary tillage and presents an innovative new look at cultivation technology.
Ajust-a-bar® opens and closes in a different fashion to conventional tillage equipment, this is what sets it apart (see our video gallery for how it opens). This adjustable nature allows alteration of the aggression, this giving full control to the operator for the level of cultivation. This control can assist with erosion and soil management which are critical in Australia’s arid climate and marginal farming areas.
Using an Ajust-a-bar® light stubble in one paddock can be chopped one way and the heavy stubble just through the gate can be cut differently all with the same machine. Ajust-a-bar® can cut as deep as 75mm (3”) or can be set to just skim the surface, effectively just tickling the soil or incorporating chemicals.
Ajust-a-bar® has disc gangs instead of disc chains, these ‘roll’ in straight lines making them lighter to pull. The gangs also have the ability to jump up to 270mm (10”) to clear obstructions. Each gang is fitted with a hydraulic piston to apply pressure; in hard clay soils the pressure can be increased to better penetrate and in light country it can be reduced.

The Ajust-a-bar® is a multi-function tool reducing the need for multiple implements.
