Slashers & Mulchers, introducing the range
Posted Dec 03, 2019
Wow, what a start to the grass season. Our yard is full of Slashers, Mulchers and Mowers. It's a great feeling to look across those shiny new units and know that they'll be ready to hit the grass in the coming months. With all these options available it raises the one big question every farmer must ask, which unit is right for me? Let's start by walking through the range. Then we advise you to head to our article on how to buy the perfect slasher!
At Delmade we like to split the range into two distinct machines. The mulcher and the slasher. We carry a range of options for each line and aim to stock spare blades and components where possible. With such a huge range we can't promise we'll have the part you need in stock. So we do advise that you check your unit prior to grass season to make sure we can order any parts in good time.
A Mulcher is specially designed to cut the grass, crop residue or prunings into very fine small pieces. This allows the material to be applied as a layer across the surface of the soil. The mulch then breaks down over the topsoil providing the benefits of soil moisture conservation, improved soil health resulting in a germination rate increase and reduced weed growth.
Agronomic Advantages of Mulching:
- Mulches crop residue to a fine consistency
- Shreds prunings and breaks their fibres
- Residues easier to work into the soil
- Improved microbial breakdown
- Produces organic material
- Improves soil fertility
- Weed control
- Insect and fungal disease control
The Delmade Mulcher range comprises of units from the rigid 1.4m units up to the folding 5.0m units, with the option of a high or low body on most units. These units are gearbox rated from 35 to 300 horsepower so can be matched with most common tractors.
Mulchers are ideal for use with:
- Grass and Lawns, for a clean, even cut and uniform height
- Scrub and Brush, for managing vegetation including grass, brush, leaves, fibrous and woody stalks, even with sizeable diameters
- Crop Residue, for a large amount of crop residue and a fine mulch
- Pruning, for handling woody material breaking the fibres to improve decomposition rates
Slashers are versatile units which can be used for most applications on farm. Slashers are excellent for covering large areas at a fast pace where a fine mulch is not required. This makes them ideal for applications such as topping off a paddock, cleaning up laneways, slashing along fence lines and preventing fire and animal hazards.
The Delmade slasher range starts off with the light TA Series by Berends. This unit is excellent for grass and light work with a 40HP gearbox and a range of models from 1.3m to 1.4m working widths. The range increases in gearbox rating and strength of build, up to contractor models which are available fully galvanised up to 2m working widths and then twin-rotor units up to 3.6m working width.
If you have a large area of grass to maintain then the range moves into the Rhino series with up to 6m working widths. The Rhino series are available with a galvanised deck and feature an incredibly smooth and obstruction-free deck for easy cleaning and maintenance.
