British Built Machinery That’s Made to Last
The Oxdale Mounted Chain Harrows are easy to use and attach to any tractor with a standard 3-point linkage.
Our range of harrows are designed to cover all applications from large farms, small holdings and equestrian venues to sports fields.
Harrowing should be carried out as part of any pasture management programme, in the spring preferably after grazing in conjunction with rolling and before any fertiliser application.
Chain harrows were originally designed to work behind horses and it is best done at a walking pace (between 3 and 4 mph) which was the average working speed of a horse.
Harrowing removes dead thatch lifts vegetation up and levels mole hills. Its job is to allow air movement and root aeration which helps the soil to breathe and improves water infiltration. It reduces disease by exposing fungi and bacteria to sunlight which is essential for the health of the pasture.
Our mounted harrows are designed to pull the harrows at the correct angle so that the ground is completely covered. The smaller frames are rigid and delivered flat packed on pallets. All frames are supplied for self assembly.
The 4ft, 6ft and 8ft versions all come with a ’3-way chain matt’. This means that the matt can be used at its most vigorous setting or turned so that it is not as severe to the crop.
