Many farms suffer from poor quality swards and limited yields even if they plough and re-seed regularly. Often this is caused by soil becoming compacted which limits water flow through the soil profile and reduces air interchange. Reasons for compaction can vary from gradual soil slump to the action of heavy machinery.
The OPICO Sward Lifter with its rugged construction is specifically designed to break up hard pans and surface compaction while lifting and opening up the subsoil creating improved drainage.
The Sward Lifter’s unique design leads with a cutting disc at the front that opens up the turf allowing the subsoil leg to travel through the sward without soil bursting onto the surface.
OPICO are currently offering both a Shearbolt & Hydraulic Reset version of this machine. These are both available in the following working widths:
- Non-folding: (2.7 metres, 3.0 metres)
- Hydraulic folding: (4.5 metres)
