Toppers For Sale

For the livestock farmer, the quality of the grazing pasture is absolutely vital. It is important that the grass is able to thrive and to produce the maximum amount of plant matter in order to properly feed the herd. In order to achieve the maximum level of growth, it is necessary to prevent the pasture from going to seed. If it is allowed to go to seed, the plant will divert its energies towards stem and seed growth instead of producing edible leaves and shoots. Reduced growth can also be a result of uneven grazing.

Any pasture that has gone to seed can be revived with just one pass from a pasture topper. This will reinvigorate the growth of the pasture and soon provide more and better grazing for the herd. Toppers can also be used for weed control. Topping them before they go to seed can help prevent the spread of weeds. This may only be a partial solution, but it can be useful in farming environments where chemical use is unwelcome or not possible, such as on organic farms.

Great example of a Topper from KiddWhich type of Topper?

Pasture toppers come in a number of different formats, including single spindle pasture toppers, belt-driven pasture toppers, fully offset pasture toppers and shaft-driven pasture toppers. The single spindle pasture topper may be best suited to playing fields, golf courses, parks and leisure areas. It can also be perfect for smaller agricultural use.

They usually feature hardened steel blades pivoting on bushes and cranked to lift the grass and reduce the chances of stone damage. The units offer height control and driveline protection and are able to spread the cut pasture.

A belt-driven pasture topper is suitable for more standard agricultural use and larger leisure areas and playing fields. A pivoting headstock can allow the topper to follow field contours without excessively straining the linkage. A fully offset pasture topper is again capable of agricultural, municipal and sporting use.

A hydraulic breakaway and folding valve offers control and protection from the driver’s seat and removes the need for disconnecting the shafts when transporting. Mechanical lock features can secure the machine during transport. The shaft drive has a shear bolt to prevent shocks from hidden obstacles.

A shaft-driven pasture topper is flexible and can be mounted to the front or rear of the tractor. Care should be taken when selecting a rear-mounted pasture topper. The operator should ensure that its operation is not limited by pasture being flattened by the tractor wheels before entering the topper.

Who makes Toppers?

Topper manufacturers include Abbey, Bomford, Ducker, Fleming, John Deere, Kuhn, Kverneland, Major, McConnell, Spearhead, Teagle, Twose, Votex and Wessex.

Toppers are often fairly enclosed units and proper visual inspection is therefore a little more difficult. Any prospective buyer of a used topper should still have as good a look as possible, checking for signs of unusual wear and tear and any broken components.

The best way to judge a used topper is to get it out on the pasture and give it a good test on familiar ground to ensure it is up to the job you want it to do.
