The Firminator G3 remains the most versatile piece of food plot equipment in the industry, allowing plotters to perform each step of the process—working the soil, adding seed and soil supplements, and compacting—from start to finish with one implement only. The Firminator RT provides another option for circumstances where tillage may be preferable to disc.
The Firminator RT retains the great features and versatility of Ranew’s full-size 3-point implement, but replaces the disc assembly with a heavy-duty PTO tiller when conditions call for a different soil breaker.
An example of the Firminator RT’s versatility is when top seeding and deep cutting into the ground are optional. Simply scrape the surface, spread the seed and roll it up with the culti-packer, all in one pass. This will allow hardier plants like clover in the plot to persist while new plants sprout and grow. This method also helps conserve soil moisture during dry conditions.
Tillage may also be preferable where there is a thick topsoil of straw and weeds, but only shallow cutting is required. The tiller tines will better break up small clumps of unwanted overgrown plants, reducing the chances of regeneration and providing more surface area for herbicide application.
Perhaps a plot was marked and planted in the spring and is now ready for a late summer planting. Load the hopper with seed, then fill the top with the Firminator RT, and the job is done. The tiller may also be a better option when soils are dry on the surface but too wet to disc below.
The list goes on and every situation is different, but the examples above offer ideas. The Firminator RT provides an alternative when tillage is preferable to disc and may offer the only solution when disc is not possible or practical.
Don’t worry; The Firminator RT still offers the same quality American-made construction and rugged materials as other models. Its Accu-Seed system still allows the Firminator to handle any size seed, from large corn, soybeans, peas and sunflowers to the smallest of clovers, without wasted seed or the need to change seed hoppers. And it still has a Pro-Grade culti-packer to ensure proper seed-to-soil contact for better germination rates.
