Our new Model 273 Centrecut mounted bedding plow is able to cut into the centre of the bedding line to give enhanced cultivation of the mound. These photos show the plow close coupled to a Cat 545 skidder and with a new louvered bed shaper instead of a roller.
The close coupling of the plow to the rear of the skidder and using the existing hydraulics and log arch to raise and lower the plow, makes for a beautifully balanced rig.
This unique bed shaper is built with high tensile louvre blades to condition and shape the soil sometimes cloddy soil. As seen in the photos, it can handle high stumps, and in lower stumps can scrape the soil off to make it easier for the tree planters to see where NOT to try and plant a seedling.
DAVEC THREE POINT LINKAGE TRAIL GRADER
TURN TRACKS INTO FIREBREAKS
DAVEC HIGH SPEED TRAIL GRADER
The DAVEC HIGH SPEED FIRETRAIL GRADER
will turn rough tracks into clean, level, debris free firebreaks and access trails.
And it will do it at speed using a regular farm tractor.
Individual blades are each able to jump a stump or rock without damage. A new rake is used instead of the smoothing blade shown in the photo, to move rocks and debris to one side, leaving a level and clean surface for fast access to fires.
