Cultivator relishes the roughest stuff

SEED-BEDS from ploughed or roughly cultivated land is possible with the latest Franquet cultivator from Anglia Imports, claims the manufacturer. A combination of wheel track eradicator tines, angled levelling boards, front and rear steel coils and five rows of spring tines are designed to produce the desired result. Standard Synchrogerm build offers a choice of single, twin or triple coils, optional croskill roller and simple hydraulic transport wheels. Other versions offer more robust transport wheels and an integral three-point hitch. Prices start at £13,000 for a 4m (13ft 2in) model. &#42
