Press For Sale

A press forms a significant part of the cultivation process, with both rear- and front-mounted models available on the second-hand market. From making the surface of the soil more uniform to preparing the land for seeding, a press will need to be part of your agricultural equipment if you want to enjoy year after year of crop-planting success. And with lots of different used models available, you can find a cost-effective piece of machinery that has been harnessed before but still has lots of life left in its framework.

A press may be mounted at the front or at the rear, but you will find some models allow for both types of mounting, which may be a convenient degree of adaptability, depending on the other equipment you have at your disposal. Ensure that any press you consider for purchase is compatible with the fixtures on the tractors you use, or else you may encounter issues when it comes to coupling the two pieces of equipment.

PressPresses come in a number of types, with common options such as tyre presses and plough presses with cast metal rings available second-hand. The ultimate aim of all types of equipment is to break up the soil, improve seedbed consolidation and eventually lead to a greater yield from the land that is available to you. Even front-mounted presses can be set up using a trail system, which means that rather than being pushed by the tractor, they are effectively harnessing a pulling motion so that they will be better able to follow the line of the vehicle and deal with obstructions without becoming damaged or jammed. A second row of tyres or tines on larger models makes for more efficient and consistent results but requires a bit more power to pull and will also consume more fuel.

Folding Presses

Folding presses with hydraulically adjustable tines are convenient, portable and easy to store, offering minimal width during transport, which may be a big selling point. Barrel presses are larger, heavier and come with sturdy teeth that can agitate the surface and take on particularly tough sections of land. Irrespective of the press you pick, make sure that the components included are all in a good condition and look out for any problems with the hydraulic systems and circuits if such extras are present. Leaks, lesions and imperfect operation can all cost you dearly further down the line, so it is better to be aware of such issues before you make a purchase.

Adjustability and durability could be the two key things you are looking for in a used agricultural press, with both of these assets being easy to find in modern assemblies. The ability to automatically align with the tractor and synchronise with its movements will be valuable but may require a higher initial investment in the press. For tyre presses, examining the amount of wear on the wheels will be necessary, while presses with cast rings or rollers will bear their levels of usage quite visibly, making tired examples easy to spot.
