Cropsaver Plus Model - Field Proven For Over 10 Years
The Cropsaver has undergone numerous improvements throughout the years and has been field tested extensively over all types of land conditions.
In 2003, we introduced the new Cropsaver Plus Model. The new cone design has a slimming dividing tip, a change in geometry to allow for improved floatation and outstanding performance in wet conditions. We also have the new quick attach system for easier handling so the operator can change in minutes to different applications; it requires no welding. The new design is enclosed to eliminate mud buildup inside the cone and it features our new greaseless pins. The Tridekon Cropsaver is the only crop divider with these new features.

For more information on these features and more read below.
  • Cropdividers simply bolt-on your machine with a bolt-on. We have designed bolt-ons for virtually all high clearance sprayers. Weld on kits are available for pull type sprayers and tractors.
  • Our Quick Attach bracket bolts on the bolt-on bracket. These pieces remain on your machine. The bolt-on with the Quick Attach feature allows the operator to remove or install the Crop divider in minutes.
  • Every Quick Attach bracket will bolt-on to any bolt-on bracket with the same bolt pattern. When you trade your sprayer in most times all you need is a new set of bolt-on brackets.
  • The cones are built with non-corrosive, strong stainless steel that will prevent chemical absorption and mud build up. Its ultra smooth design prevents crop from hanging up on the cone.
  • The fully enclosed cone (back and bottom) eliminates mud build up inside the cone, resulting in less maintenance and long term reliability.
  • The deflector arms guide the crop past the tires.
  • Our floating parallel lift keeps the divider horizontal while moving up and down.
  • Our Cropdividers unique tip design has many benefits. The bottom of the cone has a design similar to the bottom of a boat. This results in better floatation in tough or wet conditions thus protecting the divider. The slim dividing tip gently opens the crop's canopy in both short and tall crops.
  • The height of the Cropsaver shields can be adjusted with a bolt. This enables the operator to easily change the cone's height for different field conditions or crop heights. Run the bottom tip of the cropsaver 1/3 up the height of the plant.
  • This divider’s floating sensitivity setting can be quickly adjusted with a bolt in a spring to become almost weightless. This allows the cone to move upwards as quickly as required. The recommended setting is about 5 to 10 pounds of down force when lifting on the tip.
  • *Warning* always adjust the height with the height adjustment bolt first before adjusting the floatation setting with the bolt in the spring.Spring Tension
  • With all these features  the operator can set cropsavers to any crop or field conditions.
  • *Never* use the bolt in the spring (your floation setting) to adjust the height.
  • The horizontal adjustment allows you to adjust the divider to the left or right when aligning your cropdivider with your tire.
  • Cropsavers are built with self lubricating bushings which eliminates daily greasing.
  • Cropsavers are durable and built to last!
  • Cropsavers have lockup features that allow you to manually lock up the cropsavers to load on and off the trailers. This feature can be replaced with the airkit option
  • For users who change tires on their sprayers Tridekon makes the CSP Jack which pins into the outer quick attach bracket on the sprayer and facilitates faster and safer tire changes.
