Raised Bed Conditioner

Seed-ready raised beds in a single pass

For residue management in crops raised on beds, nothing outperforms the Orthman Raised Bed Conditioner. In just one pass, it removes the previous crop’s root systems and prepares the top of the bed for planting by removing the crust and leveling the surface. Featuring a combination of sweeps, spiral chopping blades and double-conditioning baskets, the Raised Bed Conditioner breaks up soil clods and then levels, firms and aerates the seedbed for planting.


Configured to match your needs, the Raised Bed Conditioner is available with two finishing choices: the dual conditioning baskets or the all-new Harrow and Leveling board option.

 

 

 

Customize to Your Conditions

Providing plenty of flexibility in your operation, the Raised Bed Conditioner features a front sweep that is adjustable in height and pitch to adapt to differing field conditions.

 

Heavy-Duty Choppers

The full-width spiral chopper reel features five high carbon steel blades that maintain a sharp edge for maximum cutting power for the life of the blades. Extend your machine life even further with enormous 2.5” main shafts and bearings.

 

Walking Tandem

The rear baskets are supported by a walking tandem beam that allows for smooth travel and creates a seed-ready surface. More importantly, because down pressure is fully adjustable, you can fine-tune the level of seedbed firmness.


 

Rolling Baskets

The dual rear rolling baskets with solid center shaft mounted on heavy-duty bearings ensure you stay in the field covering more acres and spend less time doing daily maintenance.

 

New Harrow and Leveling Board Option

The massive 5-bar spike tooth harrow follows ground contours and is flexible to allow residue flow while it aggressively stirs the soil. The easy-to-adjust chain sections allow easy raising and lowering to conform to various soil and residue conditions.


Rear Leveling Board

The spring loaded rear leveling board mounted on leaf springs flattens and cleans off the top of the bed for a smooth seed-ready finish. The boards and springs are adjustable in height to match your conditions.


 

Precision Depth Control

For additional control, optional gauge wheels utilize heavy-duty hubs, and an enclosed height adjustment screw enables easy, maintenance-free adjustments.

Stack-Fold Technology

Built using Orthman's industry-leading stack-fold technology known for its strength and durability, the Raised Bed Conditioner goes from working in the field to road-ready in just minutes, so you can get more out of each working day.

Available in multiple configurations, the Orthman Raised Bed Conditioner has everything you need to take the lead — and stay there.
