Independent 5100
Overview
The Independent 5100 is truly a unique piece of tillage equipment.  The I-5100 builds on Salford's patented design to deliver the first full primary tillage machine in the Independent Series of tools.
 
Blades are spaced at 5" in four rows, on the longest tillage frame in the Independent series, for exceptional residue flow. The rubber suspension on the coulter mounts uses pressure off the bottom of the frame members for exceptional down pressure and blade reset. The high clearance individual blade mounts make this unit almost impossible to plug.
 
The Independent series tools are known for running well in wet conditions because of their independently mounted blades for added clearance, but the I-5100 has been tested in some of the hardest ground conditions we could find in 2012 and the compound angle on the blade mounts was able to pull this tillage machine into the ground and hold there.
