TracPacker Ridge Knocker Model
(click any picture for a larger view)

The Ridge Knocker is a concept that has been developed in the field by and for TracPacker owners in Ridge Till systems.  The new Ridge Knocker does just what it says, it knocks the top 3 to 4" off of the ridge in front of the left front tire to smooth out the ridge till ride.

The Ridge Knocker lays the ridge top over into the row middle just enough to level the "across row" travel for the left side tractor tires.  With the right side of the tractor already driving in a leveled pivot track, taking another half of the movement out of the left side of the tractor tires provides the smoothest ride in the track filling business.  You can see the bottom half of the double disk opener contacting the top half of the ridge.  If you are running with duals, try deflating the dual tires pressure to the minimum psi that will preserve the tire bead contact.  This should remove more of the bounce and provide more stability.

On the right side of this picture is the filled and packed track.  The left side has had the ridge top 3 to  4" knocked out.  This is travel perpendicular to the row direction in ridge till, the roughest ride you can find in pivot track filling.  Travel speed of 3 to 5 mph straight across the rows is now possible with the smoother ride afforded by the Ridge Knocker.

I am very satisfied with your TracPacker.  We were looking for a closer that would fill and pack the track in one pass.  It did an excellent job packing the track with the front and back wheel.  We also like the fact that it is a smooth ride over the rows and is very simple to mount and operate on ridge till fields.  We have enjoyed dealing with your company that is farmer friendly that represents a good quality, durable, and reliable equipment. It has also been great dealing with a company that stands behind their equipment and has knowledge of the farming industry. 

Sincerely,   Rick Walters, R&M Farms,  Shickley, Ne
