SPADER PERFORMANCE:
  • Selvatici Spaders Provide The Deepest Working Depth of Any Soil Preparation, Tilling, Cultivating Machine.
    • This 48", Model M120-35 Works to a 10" Depth!
  • The Selvatici Spader, With The Anti-Clogging Frame, Can be Used Effectively in Moist/Wet Soils, Where Other Implements Are Unusable.
  • With The Unique Cam-Action Shovel Arms, Selvatici Spaders Reduce The Burden to The Tractor, and Consequently Reduces Fuel Consumption.
  • In Contrast to Rotary Tillers, Selvatici Spaders Will Loosen & Break-up, or 'Work the Soil' Without Pulverizing, Rotating, or Turning Over The Soil (Inverting):
    • This is Preferred in the Following Circumstances:
      • Where The Deepest Working Depths, With Minimal Soil Structure Disruption is Desired.
      • Where Nutrients & Organic Matter Have Been Developed in The Top Soil Layers, and Plowing, Turning, etc. is not Desired.
      • Where it is Desired to Maintain Sub-Surface Soil Moisture, Instead of Rotating it & Exposing it to The Drying Effects of Wind & Sun.
      • Erosion Prevention. Where a Tiller, Power Harrow, Disc, etc. May Over-Work/Pulverize The Soil & Subject it to Easy/Severe Erosion.
      • This is Also Preferred to Prevent Bringing Up Dormant Weed Seeds.
    • Selvatici Spaders 'Work the Soil' Sufficiently to Provide Aeration, Moisture Penetration & De-Compaction, While Maintaining The Basic Vertical Soil Structure & Providing Seed Bed Preparation.
  • Use for Fall Tillage, For Excellent Aeration, Excellent Moisture Penetration, Excellent De-Compaction, Even Excellent Cover Crop/Residue Management!
Customer Testimonial:
  • "Hello Andrew....just finished planting all our pumpkins, and the Spader worked great (I removed the skid shoes because soil was building up on them), just like a charm! The pumpkin seeds now have a nice seed bed to germinate in, plus the pumpkins should grow on the rye grass between the rows so they'll be nice and clean, plus no erosion...and another benefit of doing all the seedbed prep with small tractors is less fuel cost ... I'll send photos when the pumpkins are up. Anyone serious about pumpkins should really look into a Spader!"
