Mulchers for Agriculture

FOREST TO FARMLAND CLEARING

FOREST TO FARMLAND CLEARING

Mulching has proven to be a most efficient method for forestry to farm clearing. Initially, large trees and rocks are removed. After the area is cleared with the mulcher by driving in different directions several times. This significantly reduces the need for transporting soil and stumps compared to traditional excavator methods.

We recommend MJHS and MJFS series mulchers for large areas and abundant amounts of wood. For smaller areas, MJ and MJS models are also suitable. The MJHS mulcher can effectively crush soil and stumps up to 30 cm deep, with a working width ranging from 1.2 to 3.1 meters. As increasing the driving speed is limited, efficiency can be enhanced by increasing the machine's width; the MJHS model can have a width of up to 3.1 meters, with a reasonable weight of four tons. A large agricultural tractor or, for example, Suokone's MT-700 tracked tractor, can serve as the power source for the wide mulcher.

The MJHS and MJFS series mulchers can harness the power of large tractors, and their power transmission can be equipped to withstand up to 800 horsepower. The MJFS series mulchers can reach a working depth of up to 40 cm. The pivoting rotor frame (power frame) allows the rotor to travel first, facilitating the crushing of tall stumps and the felling of thick trees without the PTO shaft angle becoming too large.

MJS, MJHS, and MJFS mulchers can be equipped with a sizing screen as an accessory, producing a very fine crushing and mulching result. This eliminates the need for a separate, high speed top soil mulcher. The screen allows for working deep below the surface without compromising the quality of the mulching result.

FARMLAND CLEARING & MAINTENANCE

FARMLAND CLEARING & MAINTENANCE

Mulching is a cost-effective and fast method for restoring overgrown old fields and pasturelands.

The efficient yet agile mulchers of the MJ and MJS series are particularly suitable for the restoration of diverse pastures. All MeriCrusher mulchers crush the undergrowth, including the roots, to a depth of 20-40 centimeters. With most other mulcher models, only the surface vegetation can be crushed. If the roots are not crushed, the roots can use the mulched vegetation as fertilizer and grow rapidly back. By crushing the roots deeply, the undergrowth remains under control for a significantly longer period, allowing for the use of lighter equipment, such as a flail mower, in the next clearing session.

MeriCrusher mulchers are approximately 25–50 percent lighter than competing models of similar width. This is advantageous, especially in the restoration of wet, old fields, or pasturelands, as lighter tractors can be used, preventing the combination from sinking as easily.

FARM ROAD MAINTENANCE

FARM ROAD MAINTENANCE

A MeriRoad crusher is an excellent tool for maintaining farm roads. It can effectively soften and rehabilitate uneven and pot holed hard roads, which can be challenging to repair with a grader.

MeriRoad crushers can reach 20-40 centimeters working depth into the road. All materials, including stones, are crushed in place, resulting in a smooth road surface. Compaction of the surface layer is recommended using a MeriPacker vibrating plate, ensuring better traffic-bearing capacity for the milled layer. If needed, the road can be shaped with a MeriGrader.

The primary advantage of milling is that there's no need to transport or bring in new material. This significantly saves on material and transportation costs, speeds up the work, and promotes environmental friendliness.

RC-series crushers are specifically designed for the rehabilitation of gravel roads. They do not have a rear roller; instead, there are hydraulic material control plates at the front and rear.
