Introducing the Rakeman 3000 developed, designed and manufactured in Ireland.

Fastparts southern sales manager Tim O’Regan said: “This year has certainly proven beyond doubt the value of maximising grass quality and yield.  The Rakeman is designed to do just that – remove dead grass and moss, improve aeration and fertiliser take-up and operate as the ideal tool to rejuvenate and re-seed tired pastures”

The Rakeman is three metres (10ft6in) wide and has six rows of eight mm tines, each row carrying 20 tines.  The two tine carrier frames are mounted on two swinging pivots to ensure even pressure and coverage on undulating ground.  The tines are angle adjustable with two handles, while there is a mounting plate for fitting an air or spinner grass seeder unit.

The Rakeman 3000 is available from most dealers at €2,950 while the APV KS40 electrical seed broadcaster is selling for €850, both prices inc. 23 per cent Vat. Further details from Fastparts on 01-812 9700.
