HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THROUGH ON OUR MAIN NUMBER ABOVE?
Rescia Rotative Ridger & BCS Power Ridger
We offer TWO options for this type of implement…both have similar functions of throwing soil to BOTH sides and leaving a depressed pathway in the middle. Also, both options produce a more or less “peaked” Ridge on either side…so while this type of implement is a good option for hilling and creating ridges, it is NOT a good option for making flat-topped raised beds.
First, the Rescia Guiliano brand “Rotative Ridger”. This option has an in-line auger (the shaft is parallel with the direction of travel) and it leaves a fairly narrow “trench” of about a foot wide. The side flaps are fully adjustable to dictate how far it “flings” the soil on each side. Working depth from 4” to 10” deep is dictated by the adjustable curved “shoe” in the rear OR a gauge wheel–these adjust quickly & precisely with a screw-crank on top.
This tool is NOT intended for “primary tillage” or working in hard-packed soils…for best operation, the soil should have already have been worked earlier in the growing season.

Secondly, we have the BCS-Brand “Power Ridger”. This option employs a lateral auger shaft (perpendicular to direction of travel), and leaves a much wider “trench”…20 to 22” wide. Side flaps are quickly adjustable both in the amount they open (4 settings) and their “length” (5” of adjustment on each side).
BOTH implements feature all-gear drive with hardened steel gears & shafts and ball bearings in oil bath.
