    Residue management Residue management

    As crop yields increase, so does the amount of residue after harvest. The John Deere 2633 and 2635 Disks provide operators with a disk that can be set to prepare a seedbed for planting or set to bury and size tough residue in primary tillage applications.

  • 230-mm (9-in.) blade spacing available for 2633 Disk

    The 2633 Dual-Purpose Disk comes equipped with front solid- or cutout-spherical blades and rear solid spherical disk blades with 230-mm (9-in.) spacing. The base blade size is 610 mm x 5 mm (24 in. x 0.197 in.).


    Available blade options for the 2633 are listed below.

    230-mm (9-in.) blade spacing 230-mm (9-in.) blade spacing

    230-mm (9-in.) spacing, front and rear

    • Good for seedbed preparation and chemical incorporation in medium to heavy soils
    • Works well in primary tillage in light to medium soils
    • Provides good residue-handling capability


    • The number 1 edge has a beefier profile and is best for rocky conditions.
    • The number 10 edge has a narrower profile and should work well in most non-rock conditions.
    • Rear main and wing gangs are tapered with one blade 51 mm (2 in.) smaller than the primary blade.
    • Integral furrow filler blades are included with all rear wing gangs which are 102 mm (4 in.) smaller than the primary blade.
    • Front outer gangs have a taper that is 51 mm (2 in.) smaller than the primary blade, except for 560-mm (22-in.) disk blades.
    • The John Deere 2633 offers producers a rollable blade option. Rollable disk blades support the edge-rolling practices that are commonly used. These blades can be rolled to restore the edge sharpness for producers needing a better penetrating blade.
    • The special boron-composite material can endure the edge-rolling techniques without jeopardizing blade edge durability and longevity. John Deere does not recommend rolling disk blades that do not have this rollable designation.

    John Deere’s mechanical wing control helps producers keep their frames level for five-section disks. Mechanical wing control is included in base equipment for all five-section 2630 Series Disks.

    With this feature, a large spring is placed in the wing frame on each side of the disk. As the pivot point in the wing starts to raise, the spring presses against that point to keep the disk level through tough field conditions.

    The red circles in the following image illustrate the area of the disk where the large spring is placed in the wing frame.

    John Deere mechanical wing control is an industry-exclusive feature. A five-section disk without mechanical wing control can show up to 75-mm (3-in.) of depth inconsistency across the wing frame.

  • Extended-life bearings improve productivity

    John Deere 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage Implements feature extended-life bearings. These more durable and reliable bearings allow producers to customize bearing maintenance for specific growing conditions and soil types.

    The flange-mounted bearing and sealing system features improved contamination resistance. The advanced seal material is highly resistant to wear and damage caused by abrasive soils and other crop materials. The design of these is more durable and reliable than previous bearings.

    The design of this bearing system allows for dynamic self-alignment to the gang bolt, as opposed to trunnion-mounted bearings that have limited alignment capability. This system features additional freedom of movement, accommodating a wider variety of field conditions. The bearing system has been designed to decrease stress and fatigue on the inner rolling surfaces, supporting extended bearing life.

    The bearing and seal design allows for a limited, seasonal maintenance interval to minimize downtime. They also allow producers to customize the maintenance for specific growing conditions and soil types. The multi-lipped sealing system cannot be damaged by frequent greasing. It allows bearings to accept grease within the bearing as well as provide grease to the outer bearing surface to eliminate wear between the bearing and housing. With this design, the bearings can accept grease even if misaligned to the housing.

  • TruSet™ features, packages, and documentation

    With short windows of time to perform tillage operations, TruSet provides significant productivity improvements as operators can adjust the tool with just the push of a button, maximizing acres covered per day. By responding to conditions as they change throughout the field, TruSet Active enables operators to generate a higher-quality tillage performance within the first pass.


    Using a GreenStar™ display, an operator sees real-time data for a variety of feature settings, ensuring confidence in desired tillage outcomes. Four customizable presets enable operators to save and name different combinations of settings for their most common field conditions, which allows for even quicker implement adjustments.

    Active depth (Select and Premium package)

    Adjust depth and pressure while in the field Adjust depth and pressure while in the field
    • With TruSet Active, the tillage tool automatically adjusts and keeps the desired depth even through changing field conditions, such as tire sink in soft soils or mud buildup in damp and sticky conditions.
    • This is possible using an ultrasonic sensor that measures the distance from the mainframe to the soil as the implement travels through the field.


    Basket pressure and raise (Select and Premium package)


    • Integrated TruSet Tillage technology enables the operator to adjust their down pressure on the hydraulic rolling baskets while on the go to respond to changing field conditions such as varying soils, heavier residue, and moisture.
    • Easily raise your baskets with one touch to avoid certain areas of the field, whether you are wanting to check the tillage tool with the baskets up or avoid going through a wet spot in the field. Once you’re through the area and ready to lower the baskets, simply press the basket lower to resume your desired basket pressure. 


    Side-to-side leveling (Premium package)

    Individual section leveling with TruSet side-to-side Individual section leveling with TruSet side-to-side
    • Operators have the option to enhance the TruSet Tillage system with individual section leveling functionality. TruSet side-to-side is available as a field-installed option that can be ordered with the tillage tool or through aftermarket parts. The base TruSet Tillage system can also be upgraded to TruSet side-to-side with a conversion kit.


    Gang angle (Premium package)

    Gang angle adjustment Gang angle adjustment
    • With TruSet gang angle control, operators can adjust the gang angle on the go right from the cab. Adjusting the gang angle from 0 to 12 degrees provides more horizontal soil movement. The more aggressive the gang angle, the more soil mixing and burying of residue. Operators can also remove light ruts, tracks, and weeds at the most aggressive gang angle.


    Fore-aft (Premium package)

    Hydraulic fore-aft control levels the 2660VT Hydraulic fore-aft control levels the 2660VT
    • TruSet hydraulic fore-aft control enables operators to level the implement from the comfort of the tractor cab.


    Wing down pressure (Premium package)

    Hydraulic wing control pressure Hydraulic wing control pressure
    • TruSet hydraulic wing control transfers the weight from the mainframe to the wings to improve penetration in hard or heavy soils. In high-speed, shallow-depth tillage operations, maintaining a consistent depth across the tillage tool is critical to the consistency of the seedbed.


    NOTE: TruSet hydraulic wing control pressure is only offered on three-section models.


    Stabilizer wheels (additional factory option)

    • Getting the best field performance is easier with TruSet Active hydraulic stabilizer wheels. Choose the option to easily adjust the depth of the stabilizer wheels from the cab to match the overall depth as changes are made. This feature replaces the mechanical linkage on stabilizer wheels with a hydraulic cylinder.

    NOTE: Stabilizer wheels are not offered on one-section models.

    TruSet documentation

    With integrated TruSet Tillage technology, operators can incorporate documentation and prescription functionality into their tillage operations. The tillage documentation feature allows producers to capture and analyze the tillage 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 tillage tool along with rolling basket down pressure. By creating an as-applied map based off 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 tillage tools. Data from previous yields, soil surveys, or freehand drawing tools can be used to create prescriptions that command the implement to the desired depth and pressure settings for optimum agronomic results.
