EASY TRANSPORT: Better stubble handling, exceptional ground following ability for more efficient precision tillage and seeding and low maintenance combined with a narrow transport width are the big features of this Scaribar on offer by Lyndoch Motors this week.WITH A price tag of just $55,000 including GST, this ready-to-work Horwood Bagshaw 12.8 metre Scaribar on offer by Lyndoch Motors, Lyndoch, is the top buy of the week.
Lyndoch Motors dealer principal Graham Ahrens said the Scaribar was a real primary and secondary tillage machine that was ready to be hooked up to a buyer’s choice of air seeder cart.
“Being South Australian designed and built, it is a tough, strong and simple unit with a straightforward design and low maintenance factor,” Mr Ahrens said.
“It is a 1998 built machine which, with its 12.8m working width, is a singlefold unit rigged for single-shoot sowing
“This machine is equipped with 57 single spring edge-on tynes at 22.3 centimetre spacings and is fitted with Agmaster single shoot boots and points.
“It also comes with a set of quick attach Sharman 85-millimetre V profile semi-pneumatic walking press-wheels”.
Mr Ahrens said the Scaribar featured a unique five-row frame and open tyne layout which maximised stubble and trash flow and allowed for multiple tyne spacing configurations to suit individual sowing requirements
“One of the machine’s really big features is its single row of centrally positioned 600mm high flotation wheels.
“This, it is claimed, gives the Scaribar, a high 710mm under-frame clearance, and also a smoother ride for more accurate depth control with less soil compaction and a reduced draught requirement.
“This Scaribar is also fitted with a long A-frame hydraulic drawbar hitch for better and more even tracking.”
Mr Ahrens said he believed the 12.8m Scaribar was a machine ideally suited for smaller operators.
