He-Va VIP roller

Cultivation specialist He-Va has put together a new entry-level roller that runs on larger 620mm rings.

The whole frame has been redesigned and strengthened to take either 510mm, 560mm or 620mm Cambridge and breaker rings, which are mounted on 60mm axles to take the extra weight. Working widths extend from 4.5m to 8.2m.

The rolls can be folded in a few seconds to a 2.45m transport width and, in the folded position, the weight of the wings is carried between the tractor and transport wheels to improve stability.

The drawbar height can be adjusted by a stop bolt to suit different tractors, too.

He-Va’s Special Active Transfer (SAT) system can be factory fitted as an optional extra and hydraulically spreads the weight across the full width of the rolls to give more even consolidation across all sections of the machine.

The 4.5m VIP roller, with 510mm Cambridge and breaker rings and road lights fitted as standard, retails at £6,972. The SAT system (factory fitted only) is an additional £242.
