Kuhn North America, Inc. introduces the completed range of 4835 in-line rippers. The line now includes all models from 430R to 1130F, and completely replaces the 4830 range.

A new parabolic shank is now available as an option for all 4835 models. This shank provides more surface disturbance than a minimum residue disturbance (MRD) shank and will be useful for customers looking to incorporate significant quantities of residue. This new shank is also available with coverboards to promote even more residue incorporation. When coverboards are not fitted, a wear bar is mounted to the face of the shank to provide additional wear life.

A newly developed MRD shank is also available for the 4835. This shank is positioned between the no-till and parabolic shank options in terms of residue incorporation and soil disturbance. The new MRD shank utilizes the same wear bar as the no-till shank, and the same 7-inch wing points as the parabolic shank, reducing the number of overall components across the offering for simplified inventory management.

No-till shanks are available for customers requiring minimum surface disturbance and residue incorporation. In addition to the ¾-inch standard-duty shank, a 1-inch version is also offered for customers working in particularly hard conditions.

The 4835 features a newly designed 6×6-inch frame reinforced for additional strength. Gauge wheel adjustment has also been improved so that it is accessible from the rear of the machine without having to reach over the frame. All models feature a three-point hitch, with five shanks and greater models also offering an optional pull hitch with rear lift wheels. Where a pull hitch is fitted, the machine is equipped with single front stabilizer wheels for 530R through 830F models and dual front stabilizer wheels for 930F to 1130F models as standard equipment.

The new 4835 in-line ripper sizes are available for order, with first shipments being timed for fall tillage 2022.
