The Case IH True-Tandem™ 335 Barracuda vertical tillage tool provides aggressive residue management and a blacker soil finish in heavy residue conditions.
Producers can aggressively manage heavy crop residue and soils with the new True-Tandem 335 Barracuda vertical tillage tool from Case IH. Built on proven Agronomic Design principles, this rugged addition to the industry-leading Case IH vertical tillage lineup quickly cuts, incorporates and evenly distributes the most stubborn crop residue up to 4 inches deep. This creates the potential for a blacker surface finish and an increase in nutrient cycling for the next crop.

“We developed the new True-Tandem 335 Barracuda to help producers more productively manage the record-breaking amounts of residue associated with new, high-yielding crop genetics — especially hybrids developed for standability with tougher stalks,” said Chris Lursen, Case IH tillage marketing manager. “Thanks to the industry-exclusive serrated blades engineered with Earth Metal and greater concavity than most other vertical tillage blades on the market, the Barracuda easily slices through tough residue, uproots root balls and levels out the soil to create the ideal environment for residue breakdown and seedling development.”

Capable of cutting up to 4 inches deep, the new 22-inch Earth Metal® Barracuda blades help producers reach deeper depths and achieve a smooth field finish, while covering acres quickly. The blades penetrate hard, dry soils and break through surface compaction layers to promote soil movement and uniform density. New chisel-tipped serrations allow the blades to retain sharpness and durability, even under tough field conditions.

“As the chisel-tipped teeth wear, the valley between each tip stays sharp, retaining the cutting edge and extending the blade’s lifetime,” said Lursen. “Combined with the high-quality Earth Metal material, the blades are built for durability, helping producers cover rocky terrain and uneven ground in confidence — even at high speeds.”
