New Product Announcement - ScanStone TriStar Destoners
ScanStone has this week announced the release of their new TriStar destoner models. Based on the chassis of their current 4 Webbers, the TriStar is available in a narrow (1540mm) and soon to follow is the wide (1740mm) working width.
The TriStar carries on with the award winning open front system with large front discs which are hydraulically controlled. The pressure can be set by the operator depending on ground conditions and the discs always float to the contour of the ground. The share can be multi blade or full width.
The key to the TriStar’s performance is the configuration. After the share it goes onto a front digger web, followed by 3 rows of fixed stars. The stars help break down any clod and help convey material through the rest of the machine over the webs.
The main advantage on the ScanStone, and often referred to as the trademark of the ScanStone destoner range is the front intake web, this limits the wear on stars down at the front of the machine and drastically reduces running costs.
After the stars the soil moves onto a second web followed finally by a rear web. This combination of stars and webs will give operators fantastic performance in varying soil conditions. The TriStar comes as standard with a hydraulically driven scrubber web which rotates over the rear web. The driven scrubber has varying pressure, speed and direction for heavy clay or light soil with high stone content.
The new TriStar is operated using ScanStone’s latest Advanced Control System which has a number of automated functions included a Headland Management System (HMS). This allows seamless row in/row out functionality allowing the operator to focus on other things and letting the machine run its own startup and shut down of functions such as self-centre steering, activation of depth control, changing direction of cross conveyor and switching on the driven scrubber web.
The machine can be specified with or with a stone box and can be fitted with hydraulic or air brakes.
