Wide working tedder

A WORKING width of 10m (32ft 10in) features on the latest tedder available from Claas. An extension of the companys Volto range, the new 1050H model is claimed to be capable of coping with over 40ha a day (100 acres a day).

Linked to the tractors lower linkage arms, the trailed machine has a centre pair of wheels which, with six outer wheels, give support in the work position. The same centre wheels are also used for transport when the machine is folded to its 2.97m (9ft 10in) road width.

Each of the eight rotors is fitted with seven tine arms – 25% thicker than on other Volto models, says Claas – and five coil tines. Price of the Volto 1050H is £13,250. &#42
