Unique blade configuration on 185-mm (7.25-in.) spacing optimizes one pass sizing and mixing

John Deere's 2633VT comes equipped on 185-mm (7.25-in.) spacing with solid shallow concavity spherical blades on the front gang and solid shallow concavity wavy blades on the rear gang to size residue and mix soil.

A majority of the sizing is going to be done by the front gang, and the rear gang is going to do the mixing. John Deere designed its vertical tillage tool to chop stalks to an acceptable size and begin soil mixing for breakdown, yet leave a considerable amount of residue on the cover.

The 2633VT comes equipped with 185-mm (7.25-in.) spacing on the front and rear gang. Both blade sizes on front and rear gang are 560 mm x 5 mm (22 in. x 0.197 in.). Optional 560-mm x 6.5-mm (22-in. x 0.256-in.) blades are available on front gang only.

Extended-life bearings improve productivity

John Deere’s 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 are 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.

Hydraulic fore-aft leveling enables operators to level machine from tractor cab

Hydraulic fore-aft leveling comes as standard equipment with John Deere's 2633VT Vertical Tillage tool. Operators can level the machine from the comfort of the tractor cab.

Multiple enhancements made to 2630 Series Disks


The 2630 Series Disks offer multiple upgrades and new items as options versus the 2620 Series Disks to enhance the machine.


John Deere’s 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 type.


John Deere TruSet system is featured in base equipment for the 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage Implements. TruSet side-to-side is also available and features individual section leveling.


The hydraulic rolling basket is now offered with a round bar, flat bar, or knife-edge. The knife-edge is best for heavier, wet soil, and can be used in rocky conditions.


The 2630 Series Disks and Vertical Tillage Implements feature radial tires for the mainframes in base equipment. Radial tires are available as an option on the wing frame and stabilizer wheels. These tires are designed to offer longer wear life and help minimize compaction with a wider plate and lower inflation pressures.


Producers can choose either mechanical stabilizer wheels or TruSet hydraulic stabilizer wheels as an option. Stabilizer wheels help to maintain a consistent, level depth and are recommended for operation on rolling ground. The mechanical stabilizer wheels can be manually adjusted with a turnbuckle. TruSet with side-to-side leveling capabilities also enables operators to control the TruSet hydraulic stabilizer wheels from the cab while on the go.

Versatile design of gang angle manages residue in fall and spring conditions

Residue managementResidue management

Whether the plan is to use the 2633VT in the spring or fall, this machine was designed to handle any residue management situation. With a 21-degree angle on the front gang and 19-degree gang angle on the rear gang, this tool was created to have aggressive sizing and chopping ability in tough residue in the fall and to have finishing characteristics to build an ideal seedbed in the spring.

Shallow gang angleShallow gang angle
Aggressive gang angleAggressive gang angle

Shallow gang angle vertical tillage tools can leave a wavy, washboard effect unsuitable for a proper seedbed. The 2633VT implement has an aggressive gang angle to help anchor residue, manage weeds and root balls, and create an even, smooth seedbed under the topsoil.

As crop yields increase, so does the amount of residue after harvest. The John Deere 2633VT allows producers to prepare soil for planting in the spring and residue management in the fall.

Utilize the residue calculator to identify the optimal residue management solution to meet the producer’s needs.
