Power harrows are usually used for secondary tillage after ploughing or subsoiling. Used to finely break up refine, and evenly distribute the soil over the entire working width to create a perfect seedbed often in a single pass. Over the last 40 years, the power harrow has been a vital tool on the farming armoury as part of the more traditional cultivation process (you can read more about cultivation methods in our blog here). With consideration into how technology has rapidly evolved the Power Harrow, our comprehensive range of Power Harrows will ensure your cultivation process runs smoothly.
Power harrows come in a selection of widths from smaller 2.5 and 3M models to the mighty 6M machines which require high horsepower. Here at Ellis Machinery, we have ensured to provide an extensive range, which predominantly focuses on supplying a range of sizes in Power Harrows.
At the heart of every power harrow is the gearbox, this is the most important part of the machine. The gearbox holds key to where the whole process forms and where most of the stress will be after a long day in the field. There are various brands and models of power harrow on the market, and our range here at Ellis Machinery stock the main makes and models including Kuhn, Lemken, Maschio and Amazone.
Power harrows are powered via the PTO (power take-off) on the tractor and can be dangerous if not correctly used and maintained, there is more information about safely using a PTO here.
The main purpose of a power harrow is to create a fine seedbed after ploughing or primary cultivation, the power harrow crumbles and mixes the soil and then the packer reconsolidates to form the basis for ideal drilling results. The finish of land cultivated with a power harrow is perfect for planting and often a power harrow will have a drill mounted on it so secondary tillage and drilling can be completed in one pass. Using a power harrow can also help to dry out the surface of the land in wet weather to help create the optimum planting conditions.
