2000+ ACRE SEASON COMES TO A CLOSE
After bed tilling over 2000 acres of ground across the UK, the 3 ScanStone bed tillers have proved to be a reliable and effective machine in the field during planting time. The above bed tillers have been used to plant turnips and changing of the blades has been cut down to a time of 50 minutes for a whole machine. keeping easily out in front of the separators.
ALL IMPROVED 6 STAR SEPARATOR RETURNS TO THE MARKET
The ScanStone separator with star configuration has returned to the market with upgraded shafts, bearings and front end system. The new star machine follows in the path of the popular 4 webber open front stone separator but with a star configuration inside, to help break down tougher soil and clods. The machine has a front digger web to take most of the wear, allowing the stars to break down and tackle the other clods, this in turn results in far reduced running costs.
The Star machine has a dual direction power scrubber web with the option of a stone box, levelling, depth sensing and axle style.
