Unpowered tackle can pay dividends

POWER harrows can be slow and expensive to operate, reasons Quivogne UK – and there may be many circumstances where an unpowered cultivator can produce a satisfactory job.

Latest creation form the company based at Washbrook, Ipswich, is a cultivator having two rows of rigid tines followed by a spiked rotor, levelling board and a packer roller. The rigid tines, which can be fitted with a variety of feet, are protected by shearbolts.

Quivogne reports that trials with the Rotormaster in a number of different soil types following the plough have been promising – and expects good results when used directly in stubbles.

Available in 4m (13ft 3in) and 6m (20ft) builds, prices start at £9000.

Powerharrow alternative? This development from Quivogne UK could be the answer, says the company.
