Yorkshire based Grange Machinery has launched a low-disturbance toolbar which the company says will improve the versatility of existing machines by delivering a deeper working element to cultivators and drills.
It can be used as a standalone machine. As a cultivator it is designed to remove compaction and establish an early chit with a shallow pass cultivator and in drill format it can be used to strip sew oil seed rape to alleviate compacted areas on headlands, on the go whilst drilling cereals or to provide a full width lift in the field.
Machine widths available are 3m, 4m or 6m with six, eight or twelve legs. The low disturbance loosening legs have a working depth of 300mm and front cutting discus keep disturbance low and spacing can be changed from 0.5m to 0.6m to match the wheel widths. There is a choice of rear hitch attachment, hydraulic supply for trailing implements and an independent toolbar.
