Drier range extended

THREE new models, along with modifications to existing machines, extend Opicos mobile drier range to seven machines.

Flagship driers, the 500 series, now incorporate an internal pressure pelmet at the top to ensure better circulation when crops are over 20% moisture. It also allows the driers to be part loaded, explains Lincs-based Opico.

An economy model, the 6t/hr 535, has been added to the 500 series. It is priced at £14,450. The 375 drier with "quiet fan" and push button control joins the mid-range 300 series. For the farmer growing a smaller area of cereals, Opico also offers an entry level 3t/hr 200 model. Price starts at £10,885. All capacities assume 5% moisture reduction.
