The OPICO grass harrowing concept simply transforms the way you work your grass. The angle of the tine combined with the overall design of the harrow makes it ideal for stimulating new grass or renovating old pastures. Revitalise your pastures, rip out dead thatch and moss. The OPICO Grass Harrow opens up matted grass swards letting air in to the root zone stimulating new growth. Like all good ideas it is very simple and is now recommended by thousands of farmers who have switched to this common sense approach to what used to be a ‘harrowing job’. Available from 1.5m to 12.4m working width.
1. Flexible bed
The flexible design of the tine beds allow them to follow the contours of the land ensuring effective coverage and even tine pressure. Each 1.5m bed has 48 tines spaced at 30mm centres apart and as well as ensuring good tine pressure onto the ground, this design allows it to self-clean as it moves through the sward.
2. Adjustable tine angle
Quick and simple tine angle and pressure adjustment, ground conditions will determine how aggressive tine pressure needs to be for effective harrowing. On the OPICO harrow there are 10 tine angle settings so pressure can be altered, ensuring the vibrating action of the triple coil spring tine can be maximised.
3. Spring tines that are unique to Opico
The Grass Harrow’s spring tines are able to penetrate even the hardest of ground, ripping out dead thatch and opening up the soil surface allowing air in to the root zone to stimulate and encourage growth. The oil hardened spring wire has three times the service life of a normal sprung steel wire. Channel mounting of tine coil prevents damage to the growing tip and leaf of the grass. For Agricultural use we recommend 8mm tines, however 7mm is available.
The construction of the headstock consists of interlocking pieces of steel so the Grass Harrow doesn’t just rely on the welding for strength. The frames and beds are powder-coated and most of the other steel parts are anodised so your harrow will stay in good working order and looking newer for longer.
5. Support wheel
Height adjustable support wheels are used in conjunction with the tine angle when setting the aggression and pressure required on the harrow tines to ensure the correct amount of pressure is applied.
6. Folding system
When in transport position, the hydraulic folding models fold up between 2.5m and 3m dependant on the model of grass harrow. This allows easy transportation on the road and through narrow gateways.
7. Hydraulic cylinder
Hydraulic cylinder with accumulator and hydraulic shut-off valve can be locked for safe road transport.
