The biggest problem with seed beds can be a lack of consolidation. It exaggerates trace element problems and can depress yields dramatically. In todays agriculture the demand must be to achieve more out for less in. Reducing costs effectively means less man hours per acre. The addition of a suitable front press can increase output whilst improving seedbed consolidation and yield.
Press with tines and levellers more suitable where there is a hard plough seam. Splits the seam and produces more cultivation and tilth ahead of the levellers.
Press with levellers which produces levelling without as much cultivation as the tine and leveller combination.
All machines have low line of push to increase stability which makes the machine easier to push down the field, roller steering and grooved headstock drops the machine into cups at the headland.
Both Super Press and Compact Press available with cast rings (27” cast ring with 6” ring spacing and 60mm axle), tyres or wedge ring barrel.
The Cast Ring is more suitable in dryer, harder conditions giving better clod breakdown.
The Tyre Roller is more suitable for working in damper conditions or where seed beds are fluffy.
THE BARREL ROLLER
The Barrel Roller is a halfway house between a cast ring and the tyre roller giving good breakdown in dry, hard conditions but with good facility to work in damp conditions as well.
1.5m / 3m / 4m (4m machine is folding).
