Cultivating and/or re-shaping beds

Finishing primary beds
Model 2541 shown

Versatile for many bedding methods
   Bed shapers with shaping disks form new beds from flat ground. One-pass "quick" bedding is conventional in easy-working soils. First prepare soil to seedbed condition with conventional tillage equipment. One-pass bedding can be done equally well in many soil types provided soil is tilled equally well.
   Buckeye Bedders also perform "two-step" bed shaping. Some operators prefer to first "lay-out" the field or "rough-in" furrows before finishing beds on the second pass. Tractor drivers may prefer focusing more on driving the tractor and/or pulling at faster speeds. Some soils flow better with faster bedding speeds. No need to tilt bedders like plows for bed tops to be level.
   Tillage work can be minimized and moisture can be retained by forming "primary" beds early. Reduce soil turnover in fields that shouldn't be over-worked. Let unfinished beds mellow to retain moisture. Then "finish" the beds for the finest seedbed.
   Primary bedding in the fall conditions the soil best over winter. Bed tops dry fast and consistent in the spring. Then finish beds and plant earlier without conventional tillage work. Reduce field passes. Establish furrows early to prevent soil compaction under beds.
   Adapt bed shaping to local soils appropriate field management. Buckeye Bedders can do it all.
