A winning combination

USE of front mounted equipment is on the increase. Latest contribution comes from Flexi-coil which has produced a combination cultivator for use in conjunction with a rear mounted drill.

Comprising two rows of straight spring tines followed by two 46cm (18in) diameter steel coils, the cultivator is available in 1.5m, 3m and 4m working widths – the largest is offered with optional hydraulic folding.

According to Flexi-coil, use of twin coils results in better consolidation and a more uniform seed-bed. Features include coil star cleaners, self steering and a quick-release safety A frame.

Prices range from £3177 to £7999.
