2.8m Cyclone on John Hayes Hereford beef farm, Co Limerick

We’ve got mixed soil on the 90-acre Hereford beef farm. One side of the land is fairly good, but then the other half of the farm always needs work. You need something that can take the tough work. It can’t be flimsy; it has to be able to take a bit of punishment. The sheet metal is folded forward and the hot-dip galvanising makes the Major Cyclone real strong and robust – this machine is going to last! The Cyclone does a good job on the heavier stuff that you need to clean off. On the other paddocks where cows have grazed, the Cyclone can get in and fly along on higher forward speed and just clean the rest like standard topping. So we can do both jobs on one machine.
