At the 2013 Farm Progress Show, Case IH introduced the next generation of aggressive disk rippers – the Ecolo-Tiger® 875.  This ripper offers even more durability, enhanced agronomics and more ease of use. All-new high-density Tiger points, standard Earth Metal® blades and a hydraulically controlled double-edged reel help the new disk ripper handle the heaviest residue, the toughest soils and the widest range of field and weather conditions.  In this video, Dr. Rob Zemenchik, Case IH Sales and Marketing Manager for Tillage Products, introduces us to the Ecolo-Tiger 875.
