The Shaper Pro

Introducing a New Product for the Soil-Max Family

Terre Haute, Indiana, February 15, 2017 – Soil-Max introduces a new product to the Soil-Max family, the Shaper Pro, at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, KY. It will be on display at the Soil-Max Booth in the South Wing A 6308, 6306. Shipments are expected to begin in the summer of 2017. 


Soil-Max is dedicated to making sub-surface irrigation and drainage a more affordable option for more producers. Soil-Max is proud to introduce a new product, The Shaper Pro, to the Soil-Max family. This new product will bring the ability for users to close a tile trench with little hassle, and worry free management of the trench spoils.  Shaper Pro has a working width of 8’.  It uses a pattern of rotating blades giving it a diameter of 24”.  This not only breaks up soil to a manageable size, but also moves it to the center through the use of a balanced double helix pattern.  After the material is sized and distributed in the trench, the Shaper Pro uses two hydraulic controlled back blades to contour final shape of the trench.  The Shaper Pro can be used by every installer of tile from the larger commercial customer to producers using tile on their own farms. 


Soil-Max is truly excited about bringing a new and innovative product to the marketplace. Soil-Max was founded on the belief that everyone can tile. With this release, we bring the opportunity for more people to economically tile with equipment they already own.
