I meant to also add that, in my experience, the rotary power harrow is more of a secondary tillage tool. We used a Berta rotary plow as a primary tillage tool and for some crops, this is all the bed prep we needed.
I used a BCS rotary power harrow(if this is the implement you are referring to) and a flail mower for low-till production. The rotary power harrow incorporates cover crop into the top two inches of soil and the flail mower chops the cover crop quite finely, so it is more easily incorporated. This is low-till, rather than no-till. BCS makes a roller crimper which is a no-till implement. I have only used the roller crimper at field scale where flail mowing first was very effective in a no-till system. The two-wheel BCS tractor would get the same result with a roller crimper and flail mower.

Does anyone have experience/insight on using a disk harrow attachment for a BCS? Curious to hear what folks think of its effectiveness and role within a low-till system.
