Furrow For Sale

Creating furrows in the soil to loosen it in preparation for seeding and planting is a job for a plough. It's a piece of farming equipment that has undergone thousands of years of use and evolution across the world. Modern agricultural operators can pick from a wide selection of furrow-making equipment to fit jobs of all sizes. And used ploughs can help improve yields and efficiency without proving overly expensive.

The first thing to consider is the number of furrows that a plough is capable of making, as this will impact the working width and the thus the amount of time it takes to cover a certain area of land. Smaller ploughs which create just three furrows are inexpensive, while larger models with four, five, seven or more furrow-cutting blades can also be secured second-hand. And as long as you have the right machinery to provide the pulling power, then you can pick whichever plough suits your needs.

Manoeuvrability will also be an issue that you should consider when picking this type of equipment, as well as any machinery which will be attached to a tractor. Folding plough assemblies which can be made more compact when not in use will be simple to transport across the site and on public roads while also ensuring that they can be used in fields with narrow points of access. Hydraulically operated plough mechanisms can also improve convenience, while the presence of a transport wheel on used models will be an advantage for ploughs which are to be deployed across very large sites.

Ploughs which offer adjustability of working depth are preferable, especially if this can then be maintained automatically by the machinery. A hydraulic depth wheel can be an asset in this respect, as can the option to alter furrow width using similar techniques. Such systems need to be in good working order when you procure a used plough so that it can begin being useful straight away. You should also check the less advanced but no less important mechanisms, such as leaf-spring mounting components, before you can be completely satisfied with the quality of a potential purchase.

A plough may be mounted on the front, side or rear of a tractor, with reversible furrows offering obvious practical benefits over those that can only operate in a single direction. This category also features furrow presses, some of which allow the user to add or subtract rings as necessary. For breaking down large soil clods and leaving the land in a more uniform state than it was left by a standard plough, this type of farming machinery will be another important asset to secure for your organisation. Things such as the width of the assembly, the number of rings included and the overall weight all need to be considered when buying a used furrow press. And the best advice a buyer can follow is to know their own needs and use them to guide their decision rather than being swayed by appealing but irrelevant vital statistics.
