This linkage has reach
HIGHEST reach of any front linkage available in the UK, is Flexi-Coils claim for its Millennium linkage series. Badged Standard, Standard-Plus and Clamp-Master, the three-model range has a reach of 790mm (31in).
Although similar in design, each model is targeted at a particular market. The Standard is a basic general purpose linkage, while the Standard-Plus also has the facility to carry tractor weights on its arms.
The Clamp-Master is specifically designed for the livestock farming/contractor market. It is set up for buckrake operation, so that the attachment is tipped back at 55deg when lifted.
Lift capacity for all models at the arm ends is 3t, and the linkages are suitable for most tractors from 100 to 300hp. "The linkages will fit virtually all tractor makes," says Flexi-Coils John Bradley.
"We occasionally come across a model we havent fitted a linkage to before, but its not a problem. We just make up a new set of brackets." Price of the Millennium linkage is £2000. *
