John Deere has the broadest tillage portfolio in our 180-year history. We’ve got disks, plows, field cultivators, variable-intensity tillage tools and more to let you manage residue, create an ideal seedbed and prepare your fields for a successful growing season.
Moldboard frame pivots with the bottoms
All 975 Moldboard Plows use only one set of bottoms.
The moldboards are reversed laterally by a hydraulic cylinder that is standard equipment. There are several advantages of this design over traditional two-way rollover plows with two sets of bottoms:
- Requires less 3-point hitch capacity
- Requires less ballasting of the tractor front end
- Eliminates initial cost and service requirements for one complete set of standards and bottoms
The reversing pin is positioned at a 13.5-degree angle, instead of being straight up, for even plowing in both directions. The reversing pin does not require adjustments by the operator.
Strong mainframe handles tough plowing jobs
The V-style mainframe is made of 152-mm x 102-mm (6-in. x 4-in.) welded tubular steel to handle the stress of tough plowing and reversing action as well as tight turns:
- 5-mm (3/16-in.) thick on three-bottom plows
- 8-mm (5/16-in.) thick on four- and five-bottom plows
Easily maneuver tight turns with integral in-furrow hitch
Compatible with tractors equipped with Quik-Coupler, the integral hitch offers unexcelled maneuverability in turns and when parking in tight areas:
- Tractor rockshaft lever controls the raising and lowering of the plow
- Maximum plowing depth is 356 mm (14 in.)
Adjustable width of cut improves residue-handling ability
The width of cut on all 975 Moldboard Plows can be set at 406 mm or 457 mm (16 in. or 18 in.) by moving the standards to different bolt holes in order to:
- Match the tractor horsepower to the soil conditions
- Improve the residue-handling ability
- Improve productivity
- Maximize fuel efficiency
The underframe clearance is 813 mm (32 in.) to allow excellent material flow through the plow.
