GRASSLAND SUB-SOILER  with tractor & driver:

A well designed and engineered machine which does an excellent job with minimal surface disruption.. The sub soiling effect leads to much improved drainage and higher yields of grass over the season.

Compaction starts at the surface and builds progressively throughout the soil profile often to considerable depths preventing water penetration and the movement and up-take of all essential elements. As the soil  particles pack closer and closer together pore space is eliminated and the soil is devoid of air and water,  thus denying grass plants the “essentials of life”.

An appropriate aeration program can increase worm population and activity, and transform shallow rooting to dep rooting. This in turn will increase pasture growth. The overall soil structure will be able to drain more freely which will improve plant production in the wet and the increased root depth will improve grass production in dry conditions. Independent tests have shown an average dry matter increase of over 20%  in a fifteen month period. 

Grassland Sub-soil Features:

 

• Sprung loaded disks cut a neat slot through the sod.
• Low lift point lifts the soil structure evenly across the profile giving good  lift with minimal soil disruption.
• Hydraulic auto-reset for reliable performance and maximum output. Allows break-back pressure to be varied to suit conditions.
• Rubber mounted main pivot (patent pending) allows the leg to oscillate  sideways round obstacles increasing   protection further.
• Reset trips up and back to minimise stress and prevent stones rising to the surface.
• Smooth roller c/w hydraulic depth adjustment levels the surface and closes the slot for a perfect finish. Also give positive depth control and improved  traction.
