When it was first introduced, Ranew’s Outdoor Equipment’s original Firminator broke new ground in the world of food plots, and they’ve continued to improve on that foundation. However, different situations or conditions sometimes require a variety of tools depending on the needs or intentions. Ranew now offers a full range of food plot implements.
Starting at the top of the line, the Firminator G3 is by far the most versatile piece of equipment in the industry, enabling the entire process of planting a food plot – plowing, planting and packing the soil – from start to finish. with a single implement. . Heavy 18-inch notched 9-gauge steel blades offer a wide range of angle and pitch adjustments for working the ground in a variety of situations, including first cutting in heavy grass, slightly opening thatch and soil for overseeds without disturbing existing or “minimal” forages. until” planting. The innovative Precision Planting System ensures proper seed distribution with no waste, whether planting large or small seeds or a variety of both. The ground driven system meters seed relative to speed and stops dropping when the Firminator stops rolling to eliminate waste. The integrated cultipacker rolls on the ground and additional weight is transferred from the frame to improve seed-to-soil contact for improved germination rates.
A scaled down version that still has all the great features and versatility of its larger cousin is available for smaller jobs or working in less accessible areas. Built on a heavy-duty 3-inch square tube steel frame, it features six (6) 16-inch ground rotary discs and the same precision seeding system. At 860 pounds, it’s light enough to be towed by a minimum 500cc four-wheel drive ATV or UTV, yet heavy enough to break down and dig into the hard ground than other ATV harrows. they would bounce off the surface. The adjustment allows more or less weight on the blade assembly for shallower or shallower depths of cut, while allowing the cultivator to maintain good ground contact and break up clods while leveling and firming the soil.
There’s even a Firminator for situations where tilling is preferable to disc. It offers the same quality, rugged American-made construction, materials and features as other models, but instead of discs, it has a robust PTO-driven walking tiller. And it’s available in 4-, 6-, and 8-foot models to fit most tractor sizes.
Proper packing improves seed-soil contact, which increases germination rates and prevents seed waste. The Ranew Heavy Duty Free Standing Cultipacker offers a standard 6ft model with 9″ heavy duty cast iron cultipacker wheels, high speed greaseable bearings and category 1 and 2 hitch pins. A professional model is also offered with improved 16-inch cast iron cultipacker wheels to create the best possible seed-to-soil contact. Both models are built with the same heavy 3-inch square tubing as the Firminator’s frames and come in 6-, 8-, and 10-foot widths, with just about any custom width available.
For those who use a larger implement for tilling the soil but still want the innovative Precision Seeding System combined with a cast iron cultipacker, there is a freestanding Firmeeder available in 4′, 5′, 6′ or 8′ versions.
Whether the job requires one implement from start to finish or a variety of implements for various applications, Ranew’s Outdoor Equipment has the right tool for the job, all built with pride and reliability in the USA.
