UNDER-HARVESTER SLASHERS

With the mechanicalisation of vineyards and the use of harvesters has bought a new era in vineyard maintenance. With the harvester you can half your operator time by cutting two rows at once, make full use of your investment by turning your harvester into a year round implement.

EXCAVATOR SLASHERS

Excavator slashers are an extremely useful tool in inaccessible areas and give the operator a huge reach to clean up creek beds steep ground and around obstacles. With Ben Wye engineering and design’s exclusive direct drive hydraulic drive slashers you can eliminate the need for coupling of the hydraulic motor to shafts, thus saving room, components and the need for guarding of the rotating parts. Maintenance becomes easier and alignment is precise. These twin rotor units are ideal on skid steer or loader attachment as they give a greater width to depth ratio.
