fleming topper just got tougher
New heavy duty option launched
Northern Irish firm Fleming Agri-Products manufactures a broad range of agricultural implements, including toppers and finishing mowers, and its range of grass toppers is available from 3ft3in to 9ft working widths in three-point linkage or trailed machines.
Three-point linkage machines are available as offset machines -- to one side of the tractor -- or in-line, behind the tractor.
For this year, the firm has developed a heavy duty version of its 8ft offset Super-Float Pasture Topper.
The firm says that the gearbox bed has been redesigned to support increased capacity 70hp Comer gearboxes.
This new driveline also features a heavy-duty PTO driveline and rubber impact suppressors.
The 8ft machine uses a Fleming boron steel rotor fitted with cutting and mulching blades. According to the firm, this gives the machine a highly efficient work-rate over a prolonged period of time in the toughest conditions.
Impact protection is provided by a hydraulic breakaway device while the mounting position of the topper to its supporting arm allows it to contour the ground.
