The Intellislope plow control system requires input from an RTK GPS receiver. The Intellislope kit does not include an RTK system. Without RTK you cannot tile, it’s as simple as that. Intellislope is a computer program that takes inputs from an RTK GPS and an electronic slope sensor, and uses these
We started out using the cheapest stringer carts we could find. We even had some made to try and provide an even cheaper cart. What we learned was that the cheaper carts were too lightly-built, had extremely poor braking systems, and had a tendency for the hydraulic packs to fail. The
One such technology is the Intellislope® Plow Control System which allows an operator to install tile without complicated laser surveying and calculations. Instead, the operator can simply drive across the field, allowing the Intellislope to record the topography and then calculate the best-fit design for each tile to be installed. Intellislope is widely recognised as the easiest-to-use plow control system on the market, and is now offered as standard equipment on many new ‘contractor’ plows.
Besides controller technology, farmers are finding that owning their own tiling equipment is a smart investment – often with payback of one year or less. The industry-leading Soil-Max Gold Digger Stealth ZD plow is used by more farmers throughout North America than any other, and for good reason; it installs tiles accurately and efficiently! Plow owners are able to conduct their tiling activities on their own schedules, and at a per-foot cost much lower than traditional tiling operations. The Soil-Max Stealth ZD pull-type plow was designed to be the easiest-pulling plow on the market, which in turn reduces field time and fuel costs allowing more acres per day to be tiled. The pull-type Soil-Max Stealth ZD plow has also proven popular with neighbors that want to cost-share on the equipment as it is simple to move between tractors.
Our customers are discovering that installing tile drainage allows them to get onto the fields earlier at seeding time, often one or two weeks earlier, which can make a huge difference given our short growing season. Soil temperatures are typically warmer in spring in well-drained soils, so germination happens sooner. And soil compaction is less of a problem when heavy equipment isn’t travelling on saturated soil. These benefits are in addition to widely published long-term average yield gains of 20-30% in tiled areas.
