This can be used in conjunction with the firm’s conventional grass harrow for sward rejuvenation or the ripping fingers can be replaced with flat wear plates and used to break down ploughed/cultivated ground.

Working depth is set via the wheels and tine aggressiveness controlled via a useful ratchet system. Price for the 2.92m mounted unit is €4,000.
