Brillion Zone Commander

Part #: Brillion-ZC
The Brillion Zone Commander is a compaction management tool designed to address soil compaction issues within the growth profile in a controlled manner in a defined area.

Brillion Zone Commander

Rugged and Durable

All tillage tools need to be built to handle the stress of the fast-paced industry of today. However, deep tillage machines with depth capacities well below the normal operating depths need to be especially tough. In many instances, these tools will be operating in profiles that have never been touched by a tillage tool before. The Zone Commander has what it takes.

The Frame

Built with 6” x 4” structural steel tubing, the robotically welded frame is the foundation for the heavy-duty Cat. II, III or IV three-point hitch. The robust frame is the anchor for the lead colters that start the tillage process. The rear bar of the frame supports the Zone Commander’s shank assemblies.

The Shank Mount

The Zone Commander shank mounts are built to withstand the rigorous torture that operating in unknown soil profiles can dish out. The auto-reset shank assemblies allow for 3,500 lbs. of point load and 17” of trip height. Rigid shear bolt models are also available for areas with minimal soil obstructions.

The Shank Leg

The heart and soul of the Zone Commander is the shank leg, which cuts a narrow slot into the soil profile. The geometry of the shank leg and the shape of the point combine to lift and lower the soil between the slots and develop a network of horizontal cracks and breaks between the shanks. This slot along with the cracks and breaks created in the growth profile allows water and oxygen to infiltrate the soil to enhance plant growth for the next season. The depth of the slot is determined by how deep and thick the compaction layer is. This process is instrumental in keeping the biological environment favorable for residue decomposition.

Versatility in Options

The Zone Commander can be equipped with either auto-reset shank assemblies or rigid shear bolt shanks. Shank leg options include the 1 ¼” straight leg, the 1 ¼” parabolic leg, or the ¾” low disturbance shank. Spring cushion lead coulters with different blade options cut the residue and slice the upper layers in the soil profile ahead of the shanks. Easily adjustable gauge wheels allow for quick, positive depth changes for different conditions. The Zone Commander is available in 3 to 7 shank non-folding models and in 7, 8 and 9 shank folding models.
