Product List
Overview - Franken Sweep

The Franken Sweep inter-row ripper was introduced in 1996 as a lower cost alternative to the Orthman row crop cultivator with inter-row ripper shank option.  The Franken sweep consists of a 1” x 4” inter-row ripper shank with a three piece western sweep adapted to the rear of the shank.  This allows the customer to cultivate and inter-row rip in one pass in pivot irrigated fields.  The sweep can be adjusted for different pitch angles and can be fitted with fertilizer sweep tubes or ridging wings if desired.  6 and 8 row machines are assembled on a single toolbar, 12 row configurations require a double toolbar assembly for added strength.
