An old friend...Case SDX 30 and
40, New approach with Case SDX frame.
New life for old 1850, 1860 and 1890 frames.
Fresh Start for an Old Friend. Case
Kansas Producer, David Hoeschler at Bushton has modified an SDX to use B
series Mustang openers.
David has an Exactrix 2KF NH3 High pressure injection system in
combination with a 2KP TAPPS formulator.
The SDX-30 was
extended to an SDX-40 using standard Case parts. Producers in South Dakota
also extend SDX frames to 48 feet in three section.
Producers have also converted SDX machines to widths to 62 feet in five
section flex for banding only.

The center frame of the SDX also carries big loads
well, up to 1,000
gallons can be supported.
1. The pivot
shaft hanger brackets were repositioned to accommodate the required pivot
2. Only the
front gang pivot shaft was modified allowing 15 inch band spacing.
3. The back
gang was removed.
4. The back
gang can be installed for 15 inch row space crops like double crop
soybeans whereby small amounts of NPKS and Soygreen can be applied at time
gang with SDX openers at 22, 3/4 inch diameter can be operated to size and
chop straw. The back gang also adds additional weight with the openers up
to stabilize the machine at high 10 mph speeds.
The SDX has a 10 inch deep section
frame with walking tandems and has been an excellent banding tool bar.
The SDX opener is compound angle and a fixed angle opener. The Case SDX
bands at 3 to 4 inch depth using a 20 point closing wheel.
Banding TAPPS at 7.5 inch depth using P-51 B, C or CUE openers typically
results in better drought stress tolerance.
Mustang openers typically cost a lot less to operate, band deeper, and cut
straw and size straw well.
Mustang P-51B, C and CUE are self sealing because they band very deep. The
opener swivels allowing turning without soil disturbance.
Mustang openers in P-51A series at 21.5 inch diameter also work well on
Deere 1890 and 1895 frames.
The P-51A bands at 4 to 5 inch depth and has an optional closing wheel for
tillage systems with the smaller diameter blade.
