Fieldmaster's chisel ploughs or deep rippers are invaluable for improving poor drainage, compacted soil and hard pans (under the topsoil). Ideal for soil aeration as it reaks up the top soil into big clods which allows air into the soil and helps with the drying out of puggy areas. Also speeds up the decomposing of stubble and releases nutrients better. Pan Breaking: Breaking up the lower hard pan allows roots to penetrate deeper to moisture in dry weather and improves drainage in the wet.
Three (3) Tine Rippers are engineered to fracture hard, compacted ground leaving it open and aerated. Land management is vital as hard, compacted ground is prone to standing water (puddles) that quickly evaporates in harsh climates. Equally, sloping ground has issues with water runoff. By opening up the ground you increase subsoil moisture and enable plants to grow deeper roots. The result is paddocks that take longer to dry out, keeping pastures greener for longer. In virgin ground these rippers can be used before a Rotary Hoe or Power Harrow; reducing horsepower requirements, minimising the load on the geared implement and decreasing the number of passes to prepare the soil. In secondary application, they can be used to break up the pan (compacted layer of soil geared implements create over time) increasing soil moisture and crop yields. The main frame is constructed from square tube, fully welded and reinforced. The linkage points are a double clevis slip in pin design. The three (3) height adjustable tines have a chamfered (pointed) leading edge, that leaves a cleaner rip line, without tearing up huge chunks of grass, and reduces horsepower requirements.
The Cosmo single tine rippers are strong, versatile implements that are ideal for a range of applications; disturbing rabbit warrens, breaking up and aerating compacted ground, planting tree lines and land management. They are extremely effective on sloping ground where water runoff is an issue. By carefully ripping along the contours of the land you can catch rain water, increasing subsoil moisture for greener pastures long into the drier months. The tine has a chamfered (pointed) leading edge, that leaves a cleaner rip line, without tearing up huge chunks of grass, and reduces horsepower requirements. The tine is fully welded and reinforced with double clevis slip in pin linkage points, making them one of the strongest rippers on the market.
