Agricultural presses are used to break up clods of earth while compacting the soil to create a firm and continuous seedbed. By using an agricultural farming press, it allows you to improve the seed-to-soil contact, which in turn helps germination. Agricultural presses can be an efficient way to not only break up clods of earth but also maintain the landscape. At AMTEC, we supply a comprehensive range of second-hand farm machinery; in presses from leading brands such as:
Both farming presses and rolls are relatively low-maintenance with few parts that need replacing. Heavy-duty farm press rings have a very long life expectancy. The only other part that might require your attention from time to time is the bearings. These also have a long life expectancy and when the time does come to replace them, it’s a straightforward job.
Traditionally the rings would be made from cast steel, but the DD press rings are now far more popular. Cousins developed an alternative known as Razor Rings. These two discs are pressed face to face with a sharp leading edge. There are also other additional features that are popular on farming presses, particularly leading tines, for cultivation, and paddles or levelling boards which help to knock down clods of earth before pressing the soil.
The use of farm presses can help improve the quality of crops by reducing exposure to moisture, mould and pests, which can damage or spoil it. The use of an agricultural press is a smart investment for farmers who want to optimise their crop yield, minimize waste and increase profitability.
