Overview

With the new 2230 Field Cultivators, you can take your productivity to a new level.


Work wider. Choose from a wide range of working widths to help create the planter-ready seedbeds you want. To meet the needs of your operation, 2230LL working widths range from 23 ft, 6 in. to 60 ft, 6 in. (7.16 to 18.44 m). Our Level-lift™ field cultivator comes in three- and five-section configurations with the widest tool covering up to 733 acres in a 10-hour day.


Work faster. By increasing our maximum work speed from 8 mph to 10 mph, you can drive 25% faster than before and cover more ground, acre after acre, day after day.


Work smarter with TruSet™. Our next-generation field cultivators aren’t just wider and faster, they’re built to work smarter, too. Fully integrated TruSet™ Tillage technology helps you maximize your productivity in short tillage windows by making on-the-go depth and down-pressure adjustments from inside the cab – in only six seconds. And, the TruSet system gives you the ability to run tillage prescriptions and document data from your field cultivator pass for additional coverage of your crop production cycle.


Consistent residue flow and 100% coverage. True 6-in. (152-mm) split-the-middle shank spacing helps maximize residue flow, soil mixing and weed control across the full width of the equipment. And, additional spacing options are available for greater customization.


Easy transportability. We offer low-transport configurations for easier road travel and shed storage.


A total of 29 new field cultivator configurations. Your fields and agronomic goals aren’t the same as your neighbor’s, of course, and that’s why our field cultivator lineup includes Level-lift and floating hitch options that are both available in three-section and five-section configurations. Paired with a wider range of working widths and new features, these field cultivators are designed to meet the unique needs of your operation.


ProFinish™ Leveling System features hydraulically adjustable rolling baskets. Choose from six rear harrows that are compatible with all configurations to further create an optimal environment for your seed. These include: 4-bar coil-tine harrow, 3-bar coil-tine harrow with round-bar rolling basket, 3-bar coil-tine harrow with flat-bar rolling basket, 6-bar spike-tooth harrow, 3-bar spike-tooth harrow with round-bar rolling basket, and 3-bar spike-tooth harrow with flat-bar rolling basket.

      152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing

    Thanks to an updated frame design that enables true 152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing, the 2230 Field Cultivators can maintain consistent depth and evenly cover the field to achieve an optimal seedbed and manage weeds.

  • Even at high speeds and in tough field conditions, the TruPosition C-shanks with 91 kg (200 lb) of trip force minimize side-to-side movement and provide the operator better control of the soil profile for improved leveling capabilities.

    These shanks provide a full tillage cut across the entire width of the implement. The shanks stay firmly planted in tough soils without quickly relieving. As a result, the soil is mixed completely and streaks are reduced. This helps producers maximize their productivity and create flat seedbeds for smooth planter operation and consistent seed depth.

  • The even 152-mm (6-in.) split-the-middle shank spacing enables the 2230 Field Cultivator to minimize the potential of remaining strips of weeds that survive the tillage pass. With a field cultivator pass just prior to planting/seeding, the crop can emerge into a weed-free field that gives it the best chance to reach canopy ahead of the weeds.

    If some weeds emerge and a post-emergence herbicide is needed, weeds should be smaller and easier to control. As a result, the field cultivator pass helps keep weed management costs under control and helps preserve crop yield potential.

    • 229-mm (9-in.) shank spacing
    • 114-mm (4.5-in.) s-tine spacing (on select configurations)
Tillage documentation and prescription functionality included with TruSet™ Tillage
  • With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, 2230 Field Cultivator operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature will give producers the ability to capture and analyze the field cultivator pass for additional coverage of the crop production cycle. Prescription functionality provides producers the capability to ensure their tillage operations are executed correctly, optimizing their investment in preparing for the next crop.

    Operators can document data for the depth of their field cultivator sweeps along with rolling basket down pressure. By creating an as-applied map based off of global positioning system (GPS) data for the job performed by each functional area on the implement, TruSet enables producers to document their tillage passes then later review and analyze the data for future agronomic decisions.

    Additionally, the Prescription Creator by Agrian® company, a connected partner tool through the John Deere Operations Center, enables producers to create prescriptions for each functional area on the 2230 Field Cultivators. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that will command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.

    On the 2230LL Level-lift™ Field Cultivator, two mechanical wing stabilizer wheels are included on the outer wings for all five-section configurations. Both three-section and five-section configurations have the option to add stabilizer wheels to the inner wings.

    On the 2230FH Floating Hitch Field Cultivator, the 12.95-m (42-ft, 6-in.) low-transport configuration has the option of adding a pair of mechanical stabilizer wheels. The active-hydraulic castering wheels are included in base equipment for the inner and outer wings on the 2230FH.

    Radial and bias-ply tire options are available for mechanical stabilizer wheels and active-hydraulic castering wheels.

    NOTE: Not all tire options are available for all configurations.

      Low-transport configuration

    Low power lines and bridges can be a concern when transporting equipment. The 2230 Field Cultivator lineup includes low-transport configurations as a solution for transportation concerns.

    The 2230LL has two low-transport configurations. These implements fold like a five-section implement, but operate like a three-section implement for improved transportability thanks to the addition of small outer wings that lock rigid for field operation.

    Another advantage of the low-transport models is operation over uneven terrain. The low-transport models allow for the rigid wing to follow the contour of the ground.

      TruSet controller

    Integrated TruSet Tillage technology enables field cultivator operators to adjust sweep depth and down pressure on the active hydraulic rolling baskets while on the go to respond to changing field conditions such as varying soils, heavier residue, and moisture.

    With short window of time to perform tillage operations, TruSet can provide significant productivity improvements as operators are able to adjust the field cultivator while covering acres with the push of a button. By responding to conditions as they change throughout the field, TruSet enables operators to generate better-quality tillage performance with the first pass.

    Using a GreenStar™ display, a user sees real-time data for sweep depth and basket down pressure for assurance of desired tillage outcomes. Once the actual set point is validated and configured to the display in the cab, operators are able to make independent adjustments as small as one tenth of an inch. Four customizable presets enable operators to save and name different combinations of settings for their most common field conditions.  

    Single-point depth control is included with the TruSet Tillage system, giving operators the choice of automated or manual adjustments. Hydraulic routings on the 2230 Field Cultivators are designed to allow each implement to feature both TruSet and standard single-point depth control for system redundancy, operator preference, and flexibility at resale.

  • TruSet is compatible with John Deere and competitive tractors. Depending on the tractor, a compatibility kit may be needed in addition to the TruSet Tillage system. The following chart identifies the components needed to operate TruSet on a 2230LL or 2230FH Field Cultivator with a GreenStar-ready tractor.
