Keeping it Simple.
Minimal moving parts - Minimal Maintenance
The patented spring bar technology is at the heart of every Strawmaster®. The simple torsional spring bar design is unlike other heavy harrows, Strawmaster uses a spring bar system that lets you apply downward pressure to the harrow sections as you need it. These twin spring bars allow in-cab hydraulic control by applying pressure from zero to 1900 pounds per harrow section. If you don’t need pressure, just put it in float.
Easy, Drop-Out Tine Replacement
The tine bars easliy drop out by removing a few bolts making the replacement faster and easier.
Fast, Simple Adjustments
From the bottom up, Strawmaster was designed to hold and shatter straw, follow contour, rake flax residue, seed, control weeds, pack and spread residue evenly. To do this effectively, proper frame and tine angle adjustment is always important. When you’re harrowing a variety of crops under different field conditions, fast and easy adjustment is critical.
Under float or under pressure, the harrow sections are designed for flexibility. The torsion spring bars are positioned along the sides of the harrow frame providing an even distribution of pressure to the frame. The bars can then flex in response to counter pressure from the land contours with each section rising over hills and falling into hollows.
Patented Torsion Technology
Simply rotate the 8" x 8" beam hydraulically and apply more pressure through the spring bars. Strawmaster works the way you want it to.
Breaking and Spreading Straw
The primary purpose of the Strawmaster is to breakup and spread most types of straw residue efficiently. High frequency vibration provides the shattering action for perfect residue control. For most farming practices, speeds of up to 12 mph can be attained.
The Strawmaster is quickly becoming the most popular machine for raking flax straw. It can maximize holding capacity by applying pressure through the spring bar control.
