Monster TMC mulcher offers fine finish

A huge tractor-mounted mulcher has been added to the TMC Cancela range, aimed at operators looking to rejuvenate tired old scrub land.

The Cancela MPK-225 has a working width of 2.25m and sits on the three-point linkage of a 220-300hp tractor.

Underneath, there are 58 rigidly mounted carbide-tipped hammers, set out in a helix pattern. These shred any residue against six rows of replaceable counter knives, with mulched material then incorporated into the fine soil.

Supplied throughout the UK by Spaldings, the MPK has a two-speed gearbox to offer slower rotor speeds for shredding and mulching, and a faster grind for gnawing away at tree stumps, up to 450mm diameter.

A steel finishing roller has six serrated traction rings and its working depth can be adjusted via hydraulic rams.

The 632mm rotor has belt-driven input at both ends from the heavy-duty transmission, which pivots to always keep the pto shaft at the correct angle.
