Reco says it will be bringing in the Italian-made Sitrex HM300 hay-maker from March onwards. The machine is not a new name to the UK, having been imported by Landmec Pottinger for the past 10 years. However, Reco has gained exclusive rights to this machine from 1 March this year and will supply units through its agricultural dealerships.
Sitrex produces a full range of grass-cutting and harvesting machines and has recently diversified into finishing mowers and other turfcare implements. However, the full range will not be available in the UK through Reco as the Cambridgeshire-based importer already has an extensive line-up of grassland products from German manufacturers Fella and Strautmann.
Sales director John Sadler, says “We have for a number of years now, received requests to supply a simple, low-cost machine that will both spread and row-up grass. Our Fella range of haymaking products does not currently include a model that fulfils this request but the Sitrex product provides a superb solution to this.”
The HM300 offers high workrates, strong construction and simple operation and is suitable for use with tractors of 20hp and above, A central dividing head gives an even spread, while adjustable deflectors can be opened or closed according to on the aeration requirements of the grass. Cost is from £2,700.
