Versatility of the 3m & 4m LDT


Universal and Adaptable....

The 3m & 4m machine allows the user complete flexibility to use the machine with other trailing implements or to be used on its own. The option of having the legs in/out of the ground having no impact on the trailed towing height allows the machine to be very adaptable in its use. 

We also have customers using the machine as a Track Eradicator with larger drills and cultivators. The layout of the leg spacing allows for x2 legs each side of the machine to sit directly behind tractor wheelings. This gives another use for the machine when winter drilling and require wheelings to be removed.


Minimal Surface Disturbance

With the standard fitting of hydraulically controlled front cutting discs this eliminates burst on the surface and provides a clear path for the following tine. The disc is also key when using the machine in heavy trash or into thick cover crops. The discs are integrated into the same hydraulic service as the legs and therefore only requires x1 double acting hydraulic spool valve to operate the LDT.


Choice of rear attachments....

With the unique design of the rear hitch ladder this allows for a series of attachments to be interchanged on the LDT. Our most popular hitches are either a Lower Link Arm or a Clevis Hitch however we also offer K80 Ball hitches along with others if required.
