Summers Manufacturing

Summers Manufacturing, Devils Lake, North Dakota, has added the new VRT Renegade tillage tool to its variable rate tillage product line. Featuring iControl Implement Control technology, the VRT Renegade allows operators to adjust tillage performance on the go, using a cab-mounted iPad as the controller. The VRT Renegade features implement adjustments that can be made during operation for adapting to changing field conditions. The adjustments are made in the cab with the simple touch of a button using an iPad, which connects wirelessly to the iControl computer mounted on the implement. With this, system operators can adjust the angle of the front and rear disk blades independently from 0 to 19 degrees to switch from light to aggressive tillage and anywhere in between. In addition to the blade angle, operators can adjust the hitch control to transfer more weight to the front or rear of the implement, or set the implement hitch to float mode. The VRT Renegade is equipped with Summers’ exclusive Osmundson Mfg. Co. patented Samurai disk blades, which have a notched sawtooth design for sizing today’s tough residue and moving soil. To create the ideal field finish, the VRT Renegade comes standard with an adjustable three-bar harrow and rolling baskets. The rolling baskets feature Summers’ internal mud scrapers to prevent mud build-up. For more information, see a dealer or visit
