Said to be the widest mower produced to date by Kuhn, the recently announced FC 13460RA, when used in conjunction with a FC3125DF or FC 3525DF front mower unit, offers a variable working width of 12.4 to 13.4 metres.
Probably best known for its Tow and Fert system, Metalform will sell the clever product to farmers, landowners and lifestylers, many of whom will recount tales of dealing with water trough valves broken by livestock.
In the case of the Springarm, as the name suggests, an integral spring in the float arm deflects rather than breaking - saving water, time, money and frustration.
It was conceived by farm manager Ric Awburn when he was standing at an empty trough one evening watching the cows nudging the ballcock until the arm snapped.
He thought, "if only the arm could give a little".
Fast forward to two years later, a durable and reliable ballcock arm, that is easy to install for all types of valves, is now ready to roll out.
