Quad X adds mulch mower for rushes

ATV equipment manufacturer Quad X says now is the time of year farmers should be dealing with rushes. Research has revealed that cutting the plant later in April or May actually encourages regeneration and if dealt with now mowing is made easier thanks to the sap being lower down in the stem. To help farmers tread lightly on wet land and carry out this task the Northern Ireland firm is showing its Power Shredder at LAMMA. The cutting height of the 1.3m wide mower can be adjusted from 30mm to 250mm and special blades allow it to tackle dense rushes and bracken. There are two Briggs and Stratton engine options – 16hp and 18hp for the Power Shredder with prices starting from £3,349. The mulch mower can be towed directly behind the ATV as well as partially or fully offset. The cut material is shrredded so it breaks down faster to release its nutrient value which Quad X says is 70% of the N, P and K found in farmyard manure.
