Sulky UK puts increased emphasis on cultivation equipment

Recent innovations in the cultivation product line at Sulky Burel have resulted in an enhanced range of power harrows – including folding options up to eight metres wide.

Cultiline HRW (folding) and HR (rigid) power harrow models feature four rotors per metre. These produce high quality seedbeds with no swathes or ridges and save energy consumption and fuel due to reduced resistance.

Designed to reduce maintenance to a minimum, each rotor has tapered roller bearings, pre-set at the factory, and requires no further adjustment. Tahe high tensile steel gear trough has an especially robust design, lubricated for life in the factory with a double seal.

RapidFit tines are standard across the power harrow range. They allow removal of individual damaged or worn tines within seconds using a dual function spanner, says Robert Thurkettle, managing director of Sulky Burel UK.

“Sulky is known for its quality fertiliser spreaders and seed drills, which means that our cultivation equipment can sometimes get overlooked. However, it’s increasingly important to create a good seedbed to help crop establishment.

“Later in the season, that can be challenging. Our range of cultivation equipment, used alone or in conjunction with our seed drills are helping growers reduce time and money spent on multiple passes by getting it right first time.”
