Plain coulter blades are primarily used on no-till air drills and open the ground for planting or broadcast spreading of wheat rye, barley, soybeans and other grass-type crops. Osmundson’s original plain coulter blade is manufactured to provide strength, ductility and consistency 100% of the time in the field.
The fluted, or ripple, coulter blade has multiple applications, but it’s primarily used on planters or fertilizing equipment. While it provides the same level of ground penetration as the plain coulter blade, the ripple coulter blade does create more soil disturbance better suited for row crop planting.
With built-in strength and durability, the wavy coulter blade is designed for deeper ground penetration and greater soil movement in no-till applications. When placed in front of a planter, the wavy coulter blade helps move crop residue out of the way, allowing planter blades to do their job. Osmundson can make 8-wave up to 36-wave coulters blades — giving farmers varying degrees of soil movement and penetration.
The patented Turbo disc blade is the most recognizable disc blade in the market. Sold exclusively to Great Plains Manufacturing, the Turbo disc blade is specifically designed as a hybrid between a plain and notched disc blade — providing greater wear life, ground grip and speed.
The patented Samurai coulter blade is the most aggressive coulter blade that Osmundson manufactures. The edge is specially designed to size residue and penetrate the soil — in the first pass — at a high rate of speed. This blade is also suited for all field conditions but excels in wet soil.
