Genesis Tillage, a company originating in Southern Indiana and as of February 2019 is now owned and operated by Bambauer Equipment in West Central Ohio, is taking large steps to renovate conservation tillage. Genesis Tillage (Gen-Till) has a revolutionary patented tine design that is proving to reap major benefits for vertical tillage aerators.
These patented tines (Gen-Till II tines) are superior to traditional “bolt-on” tines and are unique to the industry. The engineering of the tines eliminates the problems that come with the usual bolt on tines.Gen-Till II tines have proven to more effectively and efficiently penetrate all types of soil and have no trouble breaking down and loosening corn stalks.
Gen-Till II tines, made in the USA, are created using a special alloy and heat treatment, both of which make the tines the most durable and versatile in the industry. The Gen-Till II tines are placed on a variety of Genesis Tillage aerators, ranging from a simple 5’ aerator to one as large as a double-folding 45’ aerator.
That’s right, a 45’ vertical tillage aerator! The largest aerator on the market. This 45’ aerator is a double-folding machine, which when folded, is only 15’ wide. Taking their aerators one step further, Genesis Tillage also makes rotary harrows for all of our machines, from a 5’ toolbar to the 45’ double-folding aerator. In early 2009, the company introduced the GenTill 3 aerator, which is a three in one system with a coulter set, aerator, and rotary harrow.
Adding to the benefits, the 45’ aerator (along with other Genesis Tillage aerators) is powder-coated, a surface coating technique that better protects the machinery than traditional painting. The color of the aerator is customizable with almost any imaginable color.
The Gen-Till II tines are mounted on Genesis Tillage aerators, such as the 45’ aerator, using a C-flex spring design that acts similarly to a suspension system and significantly reduces tine breakage. Making the aerator more unique, are the trunion mounts and triple-lip- sealed bearings which keep dirt out of the bearing more adeptly than traditional bearings.
