Empire 43° Shank Angle

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 up with some tough conditions.

These sweeps have their wingtips ‘clipped’. When compared to Regular sweeps, these sweeps have more material meaning they will last through many more acres tilled. The clipped wings also prevent the sweep from losing width as it wears out, maintaining its original width and netting you more consistent results.
