483 Chisel Pro

Engineered to loosen soil, bury heavy trash, and properly size clods for a smoother field finish, the Wil-Rich 483 Chisel Pro is the ideal tool for today’s high yielding crops.

Built with 24 in (61 cm) concave razor blades and 1,400 lb (635 kg) trip pressure shanks, the 483 Chisel Pro gives the soil mixing of a ripper and the width of a chisel plow. Because it works at a maximum depth of 10 in (25 cm), the 483 Chisel Pro requires less horsepower than a disc ripper, allowing for wider working widths and more productivity.

483 Chisel Pro Shanks
Shanks

Four ranks of 1,400 lb (635 kg) trips with on-edge chisel shanks give additional digging and mixing after the discs. 60 in (152 cm) spacing between shanks on each of the ranks allows for excellent trash flow through the tool. The overall 15 in (38 cm) spacing aids in a smoother field finish than the typical wider shank spacing of disc rippers.

483 Chisel Pro Leveling Attachments
Leveling attachments

Optional leveling attachments of a three-bar harrow, four-bar harrow, or three-bar harrow with hydraulic rolling basket with adjustable down pressure leave a smooth field finish for spring seedbed preparation.

483 Chisel Pro Discs
Discs

Two rows of double-mounted discs can be set for desired depth independent of the shanks. Concave razor blades are 24 in (61 cm) in diameter and spaced 15 in (38 cm) apart. The second rank of blades is offset from the first for effective spacing of 7-1/2 in (19 cm).
