Weaving Machinery will be displaying the Australian-designed Kelly multi-purpose harrow at Cereals this year.
Designed by the Australian company Kelly Engineering, it is ideal for chitting weed seeds and volunteers, working stubbles and plough.
The Kelly is built to the highest specification for extreme durability and to cover large areas quickly. The whole machine, including wearing parts, has a five-year warranty.
It is available in three working widths: 6m, 9m and 12m, with work rates of up to 14ha an hour. Working depth is 2-7cm, with operating speeds 10-15kph. Hp requirement is low: 120hp for the 6m, 200hp for the 9m and 300hp for the 12m, making it extremely fuel efficient.
Each disc is cast using the highest grade hard steel, as a single unit with an eye on the outside and a hook on the inside. The discs hook into each other, making a flexible chain of discs. Each disc weighs 11kgs. The frame is hot dip galvanised and folds to a transport width of 2.9m.
The Kelly cultivator caters for the farmer who gives priority to low wear and maintenance costs, huge fuel savings and high work rates.
