Case IH True-Tandem™ 335 Barracuda



A New Option for Aggressive Crop Residue and Soil Management

​Developed using industry-leading True-Tandem technology, the True-Tandem 335 Bar​racuda sets a new standard for aggressive crop residue and soil management. The 335 Barracuda effectively sizes and evenly incorporates even the most stubborn crop residue to leave behind a blacker surface finish than other vertical tillage tools. Its rugged design is built for reliability at high speeds and the aggressive, new 22-inch serrated blades stay shaper longer and cut residue up to 4 inches deep to break up hard, dry soils for increased nutrient cycling.​

Agronomic Design™: Cut, Size And Bury More Residue

Slice through tough residue, uproot root balls and level out the soil to create the best possible seedbed for your next growing season. Our vertical tillage lineup is built on proven Agronomic Design™ principles with industry-exclusive blades, so you can more effectively manage soil and residue. This patented system moves material up, over and out to stratify soil particles and increase aeration for improved soil tilth and seedbed conditioning.

Crop Residue Management

  • Control residue size and distribution to promote faster breakdown and nutrient cycling
  • Ultimate vertical tillage lineup to manage residue from a multitude of crops
  • The TigerPaw™ Crumbler® puts the final touches on the seedbed
  • Precise depth adjustment allows for greater control over soil residue cover at planting to fit a wide range of soil types, topographies and management objectives


Soil Tilth

  • Break through crusty, sealed-over soils to achieve the proper balance of minerals, air and water
  • The concave, wavy blade design sends soil and residue up, over and out
  • Promote a better seedbed finish without the excessive compaction typical of heavier disks
  • Helps reduce residue hair pinning, resulting in better seed to soil contact and stand establishment


Seedbed Conditioning

  • Put the finishing touches on fields by sizing clods and increasing the soil’s contact with residue for maximum decomposition
  • Provide a uniform seedbed depth and temperature, contributing to early, even plant emergence

Durable True-Tandem Frame

Improve balance and stability in the field with the True-Tandem frame design. The combination of mirror-matched gangs and a rugged, low-maintenance pull-through frame eliminate drift and accommodate higher ground speeds compared with the traditional double-offset frame. LED lights and a high-quality powder coat paint finish keep you in the field longer and your equipment looking good for years to come.

Mainframe & Wings

  • Provides exceptional center of gravity and balance
  • Designed with gusset plates to maximize strength and stress distribution
  • Delivers more uniform weight per blade
  • Increased length over competitive equipment improves overall balance and fore and aft leveling
  • Overlapping weld design and welded cylinders improved durability while reducing maintenance and the chance of leaking


Greaseless Bearings

  • Featured on wing pivots, rockshafts and the TigerPaw Crumbler
  • Reduces routine maintenance, keeping you in the field longer


Durable Design Attributes

  • LED lights are brighter and longer lasting than incandescent lamps
  • The Class 3 powder coat paint finish retains color longer and is more scratch resistant

Level the Growing Field

Work the soil you want to work. The True-Tandem vertical tillage lineup engages soil to your intended depth without disrupting soil density below the operating depth. It’s a system that’s proven to provide more consistency, even as soil types change across the field. And thanks to an intuitive depth adjustment system, you can easily adjust depth control and leveling to meet the needs of your conditions and fields.

Single-Point Hydraulic Depth Control

  • Easily adjusts operating depth with a single hand crank conveniently located at the front of the machine
  • Helps adjust to adverse conditions, such as wet, muddy soil
  • The system holds a constant blade operating depth to provide a uniform seedbed depth temperature, contributing to early, even plant emergence


Fore & Aft Leveling

  • View the gauge from the cab to easily return to your pre-adjusted position

Keep Your Edge With Earth Metal® Blades

Our industry-exclusive Early Metal blades help you cover rocky terrain and uneven ground in confidence — even at high speeds. Equally tough and breakage resistant in all directions, Earth Metal blades are proven 30 percent stronger than ordinary carbon steel blades. Perfect for no-till and minimum-till environments, these blades penetrate hard, dry soils to help you break through surface compaction with ease.

Barracuda Blade

  • True-Tandem 335 Barracuda features 22-in. Earth Metal serrated blades
  • Blades provide additional tillage depth — up to 4-in. deep in one pass — to help move more soil and residue
  • Chisel-tip blade serrations provide longer sharpness. As the chisel-tipped teeth wear, the valley between each tip stays sharp, becoming the cutting edge and extending the blade’s lifetime
  • Capable of running 6-9 miles per hour for optimal performance and greater productivity
