Soil-Max was started in 1997 by Denny Bell. Overwhelming yield data concluded that drainage (water management) is by far the main ingredient to higher yields. Denny owned Agri-Logic, who wrote Case and Ag Leader’s early yield mapping software. After visiting with 1000’s of yield mapping customers at farm shows, virtually everyone agreed that drainage was about the only correlation they could consistently see impacting yields. Since most farmers had a 20,000 pound tractor or larger, it made a lot of sense to come up with an economical way to install drainage tile and use their existing tractor. They already had the main expense, the tractor!Since then, the Gold Digger tile plow has been an extremely successful product and at every farm show customers come up to the booth to tell us that their Gold Digger is the best product they have ever bought. Many farmer/contractor customers have said the Gold Digger grade control is better than their other commercial equipment. Several NCGA corn growers who win state yield contests own Gold Digger tile plows. It has really been a fun product to sell since everyone loves it!
