TPD’s V-Blades are manufactured in Hutchinson, KS and all development and testing work is done in Kansas, Colorado and Oklahoma. Shield Agricultural Equipment is the only manufacturer that continues to design, develop and manufacture V-Blades in the territory where they are used. All V-blades are 100% built and inspected on factory certified Frogs to assure proper fitup and long wear-life.
Subsoilers & CRP
Does your conversion tillage yield improvement program include Subsoiling or Disc/Ripping to relieve compaction zones and improve soil tilth? TPD carries CRP Points that are designed to:
Relieve soil compaction zones for yield improvement
Improve soil tilth to increase nutrient availability and root uptake
Produce a subsoil profile that assures improved root penetration
Assure moisture retention in the driest conditions
Provide fracture and lift with little surface disruption or “slabbing”
Provide “black dirt” planting strips as needed for soil warming
Allow flexibility in running depth
Scour up, pull easy and flow soil around the shank to reduce wear
Provide long wear life in the widest variety of soil conditions
Our unique design allows us to use solid 25% chrome carbide for all of the wear surfaces with mounting boots that are designed to fit most makes and models of disc rippers and subsoilers.
The C34-SP Heavy-Duty Chisel Spike reduces “sledding” on disc chisels and standard chisels with shank angles less than 50 degrees! It’s designed to flow soil above the mounting bolts so they do not wear out before the Chrome Carbide Point. Our C34-SP Chisel Spike self-sharpens as it wears, using a massive Chrome Carbide Point. It also has excellent initial penetration in a wide variety of soil conditions.

TPD carries a full line of grain drill opener blades for most makes and models. All blades are high-quality 3.5 or 4mm thick Boron steel, and bearing caps are fully machined, not stamped steel, for long life and a true-running pair on your grain drill.
