Redesign for Grasshopper

Agrimech Engineering has redesigned its Aero Swather grass spreading system for the 3m (9ft 10in) twin-drum Grasshopper mower. There are now two vertical drums at the back of the machine, each carrying a series of steel tines and nylon brush tufts. The hydraulically-driven drums spread the cut grass for faster drying before being rowed in big swaths for high-capacity forage harvesters.
