Scotts reponds to diquat ban with bigger haulm toppers

Scotts Precision Manufacturing has added a wider model to its haulm topper line-up in response to the burgeoning demand caused by the banning of diquat.

The Trinity 30B will be available in time for this year’s harvest and offers a cutting width of up to 3m, which means it is capable of handling either three 90cm- or four 75cm-wide rows. 

New features include side lights, remote greasing points, front LED work lights and a metal toolbox.

Like the smaller 22B, the new 30B runs quick-change flails to reduce downtime and static shear plates to produce a mulching effect.

It also comes with a replaceable steel inner liner to protect the hood and has what Scotts claims is the largest variation of flail lengths of any topper currently available.

Asking price of the new model is £14,000.
