This is a new 4ft - 3 way use Mounted harrow.
Uses: Scattering live stock droppings, helping control parasites, increase pasture usage, aeration of pasture and paddocks, seedbed preparation, working in fertiliser, helps prevent thatch and moss build out and encourages vigorous growth or you can just use them for knocking them annoying mole hills over.
Mounted Harrows are available in widths of 4ft-0" up to a maximum of 20ft-0" with a depth of 7ft-6", frames of 10ft-0" and over have folding sides for transportation. All mounted chain harrows over 10ft-0" wide are available with hydraulic folding option. Go to Folding Mounted Harrows to view our range. The smaller frames are rigid and delivered flat packed on pallets.
Reasons for harrowing include:
A 3 way harrow offers a user more options to control the amount of pressure applied to the ground with the harrow. Very popular with land owners when fields poached by horses or with destroyed fields and ruts in the land. (A standard Fixed harrow just applies one firm amount of pressure to the ground and can only be pulled in one direction only)
The chain link and projecting point in the mat of chain making up a harrow is known as tine. These flexible tine rocks in 2 directions and the tine angle position is different.
Option 1 - Pulled in one direction and the land is scrapped more "aggressively".
Option 2 - Take the draw bar off, clip to the other end of the mat and pull the other way, this allows the land to be scrapped more "passively".
Option 3 - Turn the harrow up on its back, so the tines (spikes) stick upwards and the use with the flat surface to use as a "levelling mat".
In summary - 3 way tine mats can be reversed to allow for passive or aggressive harrowing and also turned over on to its back for finer levelling.
