Tile Drainage Revolutionized

The Soil-Max®  Gold Digger®  is unlike any other agricultural drainage plows on the market, producing unparalleled economic and environmental benefits.

Unlike the Gold Digger® , other tile plows on the market aren’t made from T1 steel. T1 steel is strong and thin and thus easier to pull than plows made from thicker types of steel.

Unlike traditional designs, the Gold Digger®  has a 3-point hitch that is in float, keeping the tractor completely independent of the plow. This unique design translates into reliable grade control even with less-than-perfect surface conditions.


Ag Leader’s Intellislope® simplifies the process of installing farm drainage tile through its RTK GPS receiver, which installs tile on grade throughout the entire run. Laser surveying equipment and adjustments during tiling are obsolete. The Intellislope makes the process more accurate and reliable, no longer subject to fluctuating weather conditions or grade variations in changing topography.

Can be done ahead of time with an ATV, or at the time of installation with the tile plow utilizing RTK GPS. Collect surveys by driving over the path where tile needs to be placed to collect the surface elevation.


Enter the desired minimum/maximum and target depths, as well as the minimum grade to drain excess water from the field. This can be done in the field or with the SMS TM Advanced Water Management Module.


Use the plan you created to install tile using AutoTile® to adjust the depth of the plow automatically. Grade control or pitch control modes can also be used as needed.

Soil-Max Shaper Pro

Built from the ground up with one goal in mind the Shaper Pro will make quick work of soil heave or trenches left behind after tiling.

Double Helix Rotating Blades

Our specially designed T1 steel blades not only resize but reposition chopped up soil right back over your tile. With 36 different blades spinning at 250 RPM large chunks of soil are chopped up and relocated in seconds. Every 3 sets of blades, starting from the outside, the blade angles change ensuring that the soil is being repositioned right where it needs to be. With a 24” rotating diameter the Shaper Pro can take on all sizes of heave.

Fully Adjustable Backdoors

After the soil heave has been pulverized by the rotating blades the fully adjustable doors ensure that existing soil is right over your tile. With two cylinders controlling the blades, all adjustments can be made on the go from inside your tractor cab. This is important because tile heave changes depending on the depth of the tile, soil type, size of the tile, and even soil condition. Wet, dry, sandy, and clay soils can all be found in one tile run. With the fully adjustable doors, adjustments can easily be made on the go to work with all types of soil and soil conditions.
