Sulky UK showcased a six metre folding power harrow at Cereals 2019, as the company known for its combination seed drills and fertiliser spreaders puts increasing emphasis on its cultivation equipment.
Recent innovations in the cultivation product line at Sulky Burel have resulted in an enhanced range of power harrows including folding options up to eight metres wide, with unique Sulky features.
Cultiline HRW (folding) and HR (rigid) power harrow models feature four rotors per metre, producing high quality seedbeds with no swathes or ridges and, with reduced resistance, save energy consumption and fuel. Designed to reduce maintenance to a minimum, each rotor has tapered roller bearings, pre-set at the factory, and requires no further adjustment. The high tensile steel gear trough has an especially robust design, lubricated for life in the factory with a double seal.
RapidFit tines, introduced in 2017 are standard across the power harrow range and allow removal of individual damaged or worn tines within seconds, using a dual function spanner.
Sulky UK will have two XEOS PRO combination 3m seed drills on its stand, one with a HR power harrow and one with a XR Cultidisc, enabling visitors to see different cultivation and drilling products in combination.
Robert Thurkettle, managing director of Sulky Burel UK, says “Sulky is known for its quality fertiliser spreaders and seed drills which means that our cultivation equipment can sometimes get overlooked. However, it’s increasingly important to create a good seedbed to help crop establishment and, later in the season that can be challenging.
“Our range of cultivation equipment, used alone or in conjunction with our seed drills are helping growers reduce time and money spent on multiple passes by getting it right first time. We look forward to demonstrating the range to visitors to the Sulky UK stand at Cereals 2019.”
From the fertiliser spreader range, Sulky will showcase its top of the range X50 + ECONOV spreader which offers 12-section control, plus uniquely curved, crescent spreading shape, which enables high accuracy levels and saves up to 10% on fertiliser costs.
