The benefits at a glance
Many farmers want to use a flexible machine for differing soil and operating conditions. That means, for example, a rotary cultivator with their ''on-grip'' tines for relatively heavy soils when mulch sowing and a rotary harrow with tines set to trailing mode on lighter, stony soils, so that the stones are pressed back down into the soil. Previously, the tines have often simply been turned from ''trailing'' to ''on-grip''. The finished result can then often be unsatisfactory, because only tines specially designed for each specific purpose can produce the best work.
