Power Harrows For Sale

The harrow is usually considered as a secondary tillage implement, consisting of a metal frame with spring action or spike teeth and tines or discs to pulverise the soil and create a smooth tilth for the seed bed. Harrowing will usually take place after a field has been ploughed, and the impact is immediately clear, with the large clumps, sods and ridges left behind by the plough being broken down by the harrow into a far smoother surface.

Harrows can be used for seedbed preparation, covering sown seeds, destroying weeds and even aerating pastures. Various models of harrow are available to tackle different jobs, with the most common being the chain, disc and tine harrow.

                          Cousins Seedbed Harrow
 
 

Harrows have been around since the plough came along. They have always been used to smooth the land after ploughing, and the original harrows were simply bunches of twigs attached to a frame. In ancient Egypt, a harrow made from dried palm fronds was in common use. These implements were known as bush harrows, and they remained in use for thousands of years, until the late 1800s.

Indeed, a bamboo harrow is still widely used in India today. In the 19th century, metal tooth harrows began to appear, fixed to an iron frame. The teeth on these implements could be adjusted to allow harrowing to different depths and finishes.

The spring-tooth harrow was the first mass-produced harrow of the industrial age, arriving in 1877. It was designed for stony and weedy ground and was perfect for use on the land encountered in the eastern United States. The major innovation was the ability of the teeth to move backwards and then release when striking objects. The disc harrow is now very common and was patented in the US in 1847.

Early versions had a single set of discs and then a second set was introduced in 1854. Later in the 19th century, self-cleaning disc harrows with 12 discs became available. Chain harrows, meanwhile, have square link chains fixed by cross links to a draught bar. The unit is kept expanded by trailing weights and stretchers and it is used for levelling manure and ripping up debris and weeds.

Kuhn Power harrows and other makes and models are designed to tackle the same tasks as normal harrows, but they offer more power. Whereas a normal harrow derives its power simply from the forward motion of the tractor, the power harrow takes its power directly from the tractor’s PTO. This allows the power harrow to tackle larger jobs in more difficult conditions, and power harrows are a good choice for heavy soils and for working to greater soil depths. Power harrows are offered in working widths up to eight metres.

Manufacturers of power harrows include Amazone, Concept, Howard, Kuhn power harrows, Kverneland, Lely, Maschio, Reco, Standen and Tulip.

A power harrow is offers straightforward mechanics and should be able to enjoy a long working life. The correct size should be selected, depending on the power of the tractor and size of farm to be worked on. The PTO connection should be checked out and a test completed wherever possible when buying a used power harrow.
