Claas unveiled its top of the range telehandler, the Scorpion 9040.


The new model is capable of lifting 3.6t to 8.9m and is powered by a 120hp Deutz engine coupled to a two-range 40-kph hydrostatic transmission.


Pricing for the 9040 is set at £64,800.


Vogel and Noot


Vogel and Noot’s TerraDrill incorporates a high-speed disc-cultivator, ring press and disc-coulter drill.


The unit is designed to be operated at speeds in excess of 8kph (5mph) and exerts a 9t load on the tractor linkage.


For these reasons at least 150hp is needed up front.


The 3m rig costs £18,000 and can be split so that the cultivator can be used on its own. Vogel Noot Terra


Gregoire Besson


Gregoire Besson used Cereals as a launchpad for a new range of 5-7 furrow mounted variable furrow-width ploughs – the RW 9 series.


These have a hydraulic suspension system built into the headstock to soothe headland turns and transport.


Many of the plough’s functions – including furrow-width adjustment and inclination are hydraulically adjustable.Gregoire Besson


A bogey-type twin depth wheel setup is said to significantly improve contour following and transport stability.


Price for a 7-furrow version is 26,000.


Kverneland Variomat


A new range of seven to 12-furrow ploughs is now available from Kverneland.


Taking on a semi-mounted, articulated format, the 10-body Variomat uses a standard four-furrow reversible mounted on a linkage at the rear of a bigger six-furrow. Kverneland Variomat


Price for this unit with spring overload protection is about £40,000.
