Folding Toolbars

The leading folding toolbars in the row crop industry

The strength and intelligent design of the internal folding cylinder invented by Henry Orthman have been working for producers worldwide for decades. Orthman folding toolbars are manufactured to the highest quality standards and are available in single- and dual-toolbar configurations, from 15′ to more than 60′ wide. For smooth operation, long life and reliability you can count on, specify the best toolbar in the business: Orthman.

Orthman has been producing the world’s most versatile and durable toolbars for almost five decades. Although competitors continue to attempt to produce a toolbar that can match Orthman standards, the strength and innovation of Orthman toolbars make them the toolbars of choice for smart producers. Orthman single-bar toolbars and the new Row Crop Tillage toolbars are manufactured to the highest standards. When you ask a producer which toolbars are the best that money can buy, chances are that the answer is Orthman.

High-Quality Construction

Orthman folding toolbars are constructed of high-strength premium grade steel tubing to provide years of trouble-free use, and all folding hinges are precision line-bored to ensure smooth folding and extra strength, consistent with all Orthman toolbars.

Single-Bar Toolbars

Orthman Single-Bar Folding Toolbars are designed around the original principles of the Orthman internal cylinder folding toolbar first developed in the 1970s. The single-bar toolbar’s innovative internal folding cylinder design allows the toolbar to fold 90 degrees, 115 degrees, 135 degrees or 180 degrees, and because the folding cylinder is housed inside the toolbar, it frees up toolbar space that’s wasted in external folding cylinder models.

Customize to your Operation

Our single-bar vertical fold toolbars are available in both planter and cultivator spacing models, ranging from 6 row 40-inch to 16 row 30-inch in a variety of row spacings and with the option of 3/8-inch or 1/2-inch wall, high-strength steel tubing. If our large selection of nearly 20 configurations does not fit your needs, contact your local Orthman Product Specialist to talk about your custom toolbar needs.

Heavy-Duty Bolt-on Hitches

Single-bar vertical fold toolbars are designed to be paired with Orthman’s heavy-duty hitches and hitch clamps. The brute strength of the hitches teamed with hitch clamps and tieback packages vastly increase the strength of virtually any implement. These bolt-on hitches allow variable placement along the toolbar, increasing their ability to adapt to nearly any custom configuration. High, medium and low lift height hitch options provide even more flexibility to customize your toolbar setup.
