Scotts extends its haulm topper range

Scotts Precision Manufacturing has added a new model to its class-leading line up of haulm toppers. Available in time for 2019’s harvest, the new Trinity 30B offers a broader cutting width than current models.

The new topper offers a 300cm cutting width, capable of handling either three 90cm or four 75cm wide rows.

The Trinity 30B features new side lights, remote greasing points, front LED work and a sturdy metal toolbox, which have been added to all Scotts’ 2019 toppers.

“We’ve enjoyed incredible interest in our range of toppers over the last six months, and enquires have gone through the roof!” says Derek Scott, managing director of Scotts Precision Manufacturing. “The banning of Diquat and growing awareness of the high-quality standards and performance set by the Trinity 22B have helped.

“One thing that soon became apparent was the small but significant amount of growers still committed to the three row 108” system. It’s taken quite a bit of work and innovating, but we’ve managed to give the 30B the increased transmission capacity it needs to work across three or four rows. Despite not formally launching the new model, we’ve taken several pre-orders from customers, which is fantastic!”

Like the Trinity 22B, the new Trinity 30B features quick-change flails for reduced downtime, a broad range of cutting heights, static shear plates to provide a “mulching” effect, a replaceable steel inner liner for hood protection and the largest variation of flail lengths of any topper currently available. The flat and steeply curved flail design offer by far the best suction on the market.

Established in 1994, Scotts Precision Manufacturing specialises in the design and manufacturing of highly efficient vegetable handling equipment. Its products, such as the Evolution separator, often feature in full handling line solutions supplied by leading manufacturers but can also be retrofitted by farmers looking to upgrade.
