We can't say enough about how convenient it is to put the
Phillips Rotary Harrow in and out of transport. The wing-up
frame design is exclusive to the Phillips Harrow. This sturdy,
convenient design allows you to go from working position to
position in seconds, without leaving the tractor seat. The only
reason to leave the tractor is to engage the transport safety
Better on Hillsides
Our V-design frame holds much better on hillsides than
other A-frame type machines. If our V frame slips downhill
slightly, the bottom side of the V digs harder and holds the
harrow up the hill. With the A-frame design, if the harrow
slips slightly down the hill, the upper part of the harrow digs
in harder and pushes the harrow even further down the hill.
and Heavy Frame
Once you see the Phillips Rotary Harrow, you'll be suitably
impressed with the stout frame. It looks almost overbuilt
compared to other machines, but it needs to be strong.
Operators pull the Phillips Rotary Harrow at speeds upward of
10 mph or even more. Traveling at 8 to 9 mph is not uncommon.
It can handle it. And, it can handle the extra weight of
applicators used for broadcasting granular products.
The heart of the Phillips Rotary Harrow is the patented
interlocking tine assembly. Our superior staggered design hits
the ground in a pattern of dotted grooves 3.25" apart. This
pattern disturbs a high percentage of the ground leaving the
soil surface smooth. The heavy cable that runs through the
center of the tooling is for ballast only, offering a bit more
penetration. The tooling doesn't plug up because of its
self-cleaning nature. Our superior tines are made strong from
high carbon, hot forged and heat-treated steel. They don't
break and they last a very long time.

Reasons To Use Phillips Rotary Harrows
Seed Bed Preparation
Residue Management in No-Till
Levels Lumps and Ridges
Levels Standing Corn Stalks
Great for Incorporating Manure
Incorporation in Top Soil
Sow Small Seeds
Works Great on Terraces
Aerates Hay Land and Pasture
Rolls Over Rocks Easily
The Field Faster
As the Phillips Harrow rolls through the field, its
hardened steel tines lift and redistribute crop residue.
Residue dries more quickly and air circulates through the trash
to the soil.
crack the soil surface increasing surface area and speeding the
evaporation and drying rate. The result: you get all of the
soil warming benefit of traditional tillage.

"tills" about one inch of soil. This speeds soil
drying and warming - creating a perfect no-till seed
environment in both wet or dry conditions.
tines only penetrate the soil about one inch. By cracking the
soil surface, the harrow improves drying and warming. But this
micro-tillage layer is above the seeding depth. So, as seeds
germinate, roots move down through uniform soils.
inhibit root growth. Field cultivators create two
dramatically different soil density layers. At the
surface, there's a loose, highly aerated layer that
quickly changes to a more dense, packed layer. Roots have
to shrink before they can penetrate that dense soil.
