Heath Super Grab makes for faster big bale handling

A range of crop handling equipment was exhibited by Heath Engineering when the company made its debut at last month’s LAMMA event.

The British manufacturer has been producing agricultural equipment for more than 70 years. But this year was the first time it has exhibited at LAMMA, held on 18-19 January at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.

Headlining the range of innovative equipment was the Heath Super Grab and the Heath Super Spike – both of which attracted interest from LAMMA visitors looking to improve farm operating efficiency and productivity.

The Super Grab boasts a free release system for safer bale stacking and loading. Bale holding is provided by four Hardox tines. The grab can handle and stack big square bales either vertically or horizontally in operation.

The Heath Super Spike is a bale handling spike designed with road safety transport in mind. Built to allow a 1.5 tonne carrying capacity, the tines fold away for safe road transport position, while the safety bale bar extends for safe bale handing.

Warwickshire-based Heath has also developed a Super Dozer for grain sheds. A telescopic grain dozer, it gives an extra 1500mm of powered push. The telescopic and carriage mounting points ensure a fold up vertical position for safe road transport between grain stores and farms.

Meanwhile, the Heath Handling Jib is a 3t grain handling bucket for farmers requiring the fast loading of lorries – saving both labour and money. It is is designed for use with non-telescopic materials handlers to allow the safe extended handling of one tonne bags.
