Your right didn't look close enough
Yep a Celli rotavator, bought it from a neighbour - pretty much like all the harrows here It is not a spike one but a straight blade version. It's a very genuine two owner machine with what I think are the original blades. Sped things up here for definite and glad I did buy it given the year.
In a way it's reuniting a classic combination that would have been sold by the late Nick Gore of Duncormick Tractors in the 90s as he was agent for Landini and Celli importer.
I thought that anybody at tillage didn't use blade rotavators because they smeared the surface and sealed it, would a rotovator not be cheaper to maintain and buy than a power harrow and less to go wrong. I bought a howard rotovator a couple of years ago for reseeding and a bit of spuds.
I thought that was only L ad C type blade rotavators that had a tendency to smear and surface?
Looking good @nashmach you must have more barley sown than other years?
It's a little more than other years but should be more. Some still to plough and at this stage and given the forecast it won't be going into barley (unless miracles happen).
I never seen the straight blade type before, have you any photos?, I thought yours was the L type blade
Celli 3m heavy duty power harrow
To complete the set Nash!
This one may help @lough
Is it driven from both sides with a solid shaft that the flails are bolted onto? Or is the main shaft split in the middle?
It didn't see a lot of hardship in its life anyway- yet!
It`s the same setup as a Howard - one shaft out of central gearbox out to the left side. a set of gears (no chain) drop the drive down to the main one piece rotor.
PA Pentony & Co imported the Celli many years ago, @nashmach We sold a few of the real early ones. I was in the Celli factory on one of the famous Dealer Drinking Tours of Europe in 1981.
Tengtooltom has nicely summarised it above!
I'd hope to keep the last comment that way!!!
A bit of rollling today.
Another few bags off for a spin.
3rd trailer for drawing bales in four years
Is that a another new purchase?
He was getting back trouble , caused by sleeping on a mattress stuffed with wads of 50s. @diesel power used to suffer greatly from a similar affliction.
He got himself a woman to cure the problem...
sometimes the cure is worse than the disease though
Back trouble alright, crippled since Friday night after drawing bales with that combination and then picked 11 acres of stones on Saturday evening.
I need to win the lotto to get something with a better seat
Aye. City slicker professionals wages would pay for a new tractor in 2 or 3 months.
I was in the mart the other day and I was talking to a man who met you in the doctors the other day. Seemingly you were after burning yourself off the lightbulb again. He sends on his best wishes.
A Britains One I agree
I doubt any more silage will be cut before the grain is in....
