East Yorkshire farm machinery importer Manterra has extended its range of Unia farm machinery with the launch of a vertical-folding disc mower.
Manterra, Unia’s UK importer, says it has high hopes for the improved version of the proven Alka CL Disc Mower. Available in a range of sizes, it has hydraulic folding for transport, hydro pneumatic control of the mowing bar, an overrun safety device and a swath conditioner option.
Manterra founder Andrew Manfield said: “The new Alka CL disc mower leads the field in terms of price competitiveness, a proven cutter bed and an ability to withstand challenging terrain.”
It is available in widths from 2.4m to 3.2m. Prices start at £5,950 and run to £8,950 for a 3.2m machine with conditioner.
Manterra is also an authorised reseller for Trimble precision agriculture products and Duport spoke wheel injectors and is the key technology supplier to the Stockbridge Technology Centre’s Tru-Nject project.
That organisation has secured Innovate UK funding for a three-year trial to commercialise innovative soil nutrient mapping technology that has the potential to revolutionise farming practices.
