Seedbed Conditioner

Unmatched seedbed preparation

The Orthman Seedbed Conditioner is a multipurpose residue management and seedbed preparation tool for chopping stalks and preparing your fields for planting. The seedbed conditioner uses a unique 7-blade spiral chopper and double-conditioning baskets to chop stalks, stir loosened soil and leave a level seedbed for the ultimate planter ride and performance.

Heavy-Duty Choppers

The full-width spiral chopper reel features seven high-carbon steel blades designed to 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 smooth travel and creates a seed-ready surface. More importantly, because down pressure on the rear baskets is fully adjustable, you can fine-tune the level of seedbed firmness to meet changing field conditions.


Rolling Baskets

The dual, rear rolling baskets feature a solid center shaft mounted on heavy-duty bearings to help ensure you stay in the field, spending less time doing daily maintenance.


Precision Depth Control

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

Unsurpassed Toolbar Strength

Built using Orthman's industry-leading toolbars, known for their strength and durability, our seedbed conditioner goes from working in the field to road-ready in just minutes to help you get more out of each working day.

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