Major Equipment at Ploughing 2018

Major Equipment revamps Side Mounted Topper, adds 2.4m to its robust range of tractor mounted agricultural equipment

Grass and slurry experts Major Equipment Intl Ltd are returning to the 2018 National Ploughing Championships with a strong line-up of tractor mounted machinery for agricultural, professional and industrial applications. With products renowned for durability, reliability and easy operability, Major Equipment designs equipment with the owner in mind – machines strongly feature versatility and low running costs, deciding factors for farms and businesses looking to reduce maintenance bills and machine downtimes.

This is evident in the Cyclone Mower, a rotary mower that bridges the gap between a traditional grass topper and flail mower and Agri-Engineering Gold Medal winner at the 2015 National Ploughing Championships.  Designed to do the work of a flail, the Major Cyclone requires 25% less power consumption than a typical flail, saving time and fuel costs for users. The heavy duty machine is increasingly the instrument of choice for clearing crop stubble, pasture topping, and land clearance in Ireland and around the world.

In addition to showcasing the full range of Cyclone Mowers at this year’s ploughing championships, Major Equipment will introduce a new Side Mounted Topper, adding to its extensive range of fully offset three point linkage mowers. The new model offers a 2.4m cutting width with a bigger gearbox and rubber couplings capable of handling heavier tractors. A key feature is a premium blade system with undersole discs allowing blades to flip out of the way in the event of striking an obstacle. This element combined with Hardox®450 abrasion resistant steel used to make the undersole discs increases the lifespan of the blades.

Users will see a major difference in how the topper looks – it folds up vertically. The redesigned carrying arm improves weight distribution, ensuring safer transport while increasing manoeuvrability for access and mowing.

The new kit retains features from the first series including a hydraulic offset with an integrated hydraulic breakaway protecting the tractor from impact damage, a floating top link ensuring the cutting deck hugs the ground contours, and a damper bar to remove any lateral vibration. A shearbolt PTO shaft is standard transmission with options for an overrun and slip clutch PTO.

Major Equipment produces all machinery in Ballyhaunis and assures the reliability and durability of all its products. The 2.4m Side Mounted Topper benefits from Strenx™ 700MC high-strength steel and a galvanised body for increased longevity.

Call to the Major stand (Row 21, Stand 461) at the 2018 National Ploughing Championships to see the new Side Mounted Topper, the award-wining Cyclone Mowers and a selection of slurry tankers and slurry application systems.
