Leave weeds and straw on surface to provide a valuable mulch layer
Prickle Chains are used to level the soil surface following a tillage operation. They are especially effective in situations where stubble residue is present. The chains roll and gently pack the soil while leveling ridges and filling furrows. Straw and weed material are lifted to the surface and left as a mulch.
The mulch has the effect of sheltering the soil surface from wind and sun, reducing evaporation. The level soil surface has a lesser surface area than a ridged paddock evaporation. The mulch acts to slow down wind and water movement over the soil surface, creating a zone of zero velocity that protects the soil from erosion.
Prickle Chains are excellent tools for incorporating soil-applied herbicides.
20mm welded chain with 20mm K1045 grade steel spikes welded through the link. 4 spikes per link, 300 mm rolling diameter. In our Diamond configuration there are 132 spikes per metre of coverage. Roughly double the competition.
HD Rice Prickle Chain
Our unique Heavy Duty uni directional prickle chain is designed for super heavy residue situations like rice stubble. The spikes trail in both the direction of rotation and travel. This reduces wrapping, improves work rate and effectiveness, the spikes stay free to perform.
High grade RHS and plate are combined to produce a strong and durable frame. Sections include 150×100 RHS in 5 and 6 mm wall thickness. Profile and Laser cut plates are used to give strength, functionality and a professional appearance. The rugged and reliable frames have been strengthened and improved to withstand the extra stresses encountered with the Disc Chain. Each year millions of hectares of experience help to keep our product ahead of the game. This is the strongest prickle chain frame on the market.
Increasing demand on our machines has led us to offer a range of wheel options.
On our 60 models we fit the heavy duty BKT 16.5/85×24 16pr lug tyre as standard.
We now offer an alternative transport wheel option. BKT 550/60×22.5 wheels.
The 50 is standard with BKT 15.5/85×24 wheels all round. It will now accommodate 385/65×22.5 wheels in the centre.
The popular 30, 40 and 45 models come standard with BKT 15.0/85×18 implement tyres.
For extended road work we offer 385/65×22.5 wheels in the centre.
Folding totally from tractor seat – user friendly All Models use two pairs of 1/2” ISO standard hydraulic couplings. Larger models incorporate a multi stage sequence valve to manage the folding and unfolding operations. Theses customised manifolds incorporate safety features for burst protection and operator safety. High quality Ryco hose and fittings are used exclusively.
