  • SWEEP DESIGN: Sweeps That Will Keep You Up and Running Acre After Acre Built with Case IH Agronomic Design principles, the Tiger-Mate 255 features our exclusive split-the-middle sweep pattern and proven sweep designs. The results? Better soil tilth, healthy root development, and optimal soil and residue incorporation.

    Split-the-Middle Sweep Design-

  • With a 5-bar frame, the first three shank rows take full cuts through the soil, while the two rear shank rows take smaller cuts to remove the middle.
  • Features 26-inch side-by-side shank clearance for improved residue flow.
  • With the 6.5-inch shank spacing, this sweep pattern ensures 100 percent sweep coverage.
  • Durable, Long-Lasting Sweeps-

  • Made from high-strength Earth Metal alloy steel composition.
  • Unique rear-flowing parabolic design creates superior soil and residue flow.
  • Longer wear life allows for less-frequent replacement and maintenance.
  • Hard and durable without brittleness to stand up to the toughest conditions.
  • Sharp, forged cutting-edge maintains its edge throughout its life span.
  • Sweep Options-

  • Maxxi-Point provides better scouring in wet conditions forged cutting edges for reduced draft load; and improved penetration from the extended nose and ½ inch wear point.
  • Maxxi-Grip has a lower-angle pitch, 1-inch wear tip, two-part knock-on design that mounts to a heavy-duty adapter for easy installation and added strength.
  • Maxxi-Point Plus has the same design as the Maxxi-Point but with a two-part design and mounts to a heavy duty adapter for easy installation and added strength.
  • SHANK ASSEMBLY: Balance Force and Flexibility For a High-Efficiency Seedbed The workhorse component of the Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator is the superior shank assembly, combining force and flexibility to support field speeds of up to 10 mph. Thicker shanks, a beefed-up shank guard channel and increased holding power help you manage fast-changing springtime field conditions.

    Better Soil and Residue Management-

  • Swept back, high-concavity shank design helps soil ramp up and explode higher to effectively mix particles, break down tough clods and level the soil.
  • Thicker, stronger shanks — 11/16-inch compared with the previous 5/8-inch — match to spring pressure for ideal performance.
  • Greater residue throughput thanks to 6.5-inch shank spacing that ensures better soil mixing and improved residue distribution.
  • Increased Spring Force-

  • Greater spring force delivers a 20% increase in holding power, allowing the field cultivator to penetrate hard soils, even at higher speeds.
  • Proportional increase in spring force and shank thickness keeps sweeps parallel to the ground for a consistently flat subsurface floor, more accurate seed placement and uniform seedling emergence.
  • Enhanced Durability-

  • Shank guard channel ensures stability through turns and provides even loading and added durability.
  • A 5/8-inch main shank pivot bolt holds tight to stabilize spring pressure and improves the durability of the dual bushing pivot point.
  • Low-maintenance features include clamp-style shank mounts, single-bolt installation, welded cylinder and grease-less bearings.
  • FINISHING TOOLS: Achieve the Perfect Finish Multiple finishing tool options on the Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator allow you to select the perfect finish for your soil type and farming practices. With industry-leading down pressure consistency, our Advanced Conditioning Systems (ACS) harrows are proven to maximize seed-to-soil contact in the final pass before planting.
