Empire Edge-On Penetrator Low Density Sweeps
Edge-on sweeps are a simple yet effective evolution of standard cultivators. The shank is rotated 90° to present the narrow edge of the shank to the direction of travel. In this configuration the sweep shank generates less drag and catches less trash. These sweeps are designed with Empire’s penetrator geometry. Our Penetrator wing geometry is a patented design feature and it can be found in many of our product lines. A bend along the wing span pitches the forward cutting edge down and presents the ground surface with a steeper blade angle of 37°. This reduces the load required to penetrate a hard, dry surface of soil by up to 55%. This bend also serves to make the sweep ultra rigid so you can trust it to put with some tough conditions.
