One-pass cultivations

A NEW front-mounted cultivator packer from Flexicoil could, in certain conditions, enable one-pass cultivation and drilling, claims the company.

The Combinator range comprises the 3m and 4m models – the smaller version a rigid build and the 4m offered with the option of hydraulic folding.

In both cases, two rows of straight spring tines are followed by a row of 70cm diameter cast rings and a 40cm solid steel coil with star cleaners. The cultivator can be used in conjunction with a power harrow – workrate is claimed to be enhanced – and/or a drill unit.

Prices start at £5450 for the 3m rigid and extend to £8750 for the hydraulically folding 4m version.
