Almonds: Nourishing Nutty Goodness for a Healthier You!

Why not grow the best almond orchards with Kelly 1204? 

Introducing Kelly Harrow 1204 

The Kelly Model 1204  is a special tool for almond orchards. It levels the ground and prepares it for harvesting. 

The disc chains work near the surface to make the soil smooth and remove weeds without harming the crop roots. It comes in three different sizes to fit various field widths as mentioned below. 

  • 3.5 metres
  • 4.5 metres 
  • 4.0 metres 

Optimise Your Almond Orchards!

Kelly 1204 is a fantastic farm implement with extraordinary features that make year-round inter-row management easy. Let’s take a closer look at each one of these outstanding capabilities simultaneously.

Wide tyres for minimal soil distribution

  • Wide tyres make more contact with the ground than narrow tires, resulting in a larger surface area supporting the weight of the Kelly 1204 diamond harrow. This broader distribution of weight reduces the pressure exerted on the soil, leading to less compression of soil particles.

  • Such broad tyres don’t sink as much in soft or wet soil. They kind of “float” on top instead. Due to this, the soil doesn’t get squished too much under the heavy harrow, which keeps it from getting too compacted.

  • Kelly 1204 wide tyres can cover more area in one pass, thus it reduces the problem of repeated compaction, and helps keep the soil in better shape.

  • These tyres have patterns on them, which makes them hold on to the ground better and not slide as much. When they don’t slide too much, they don’t rip or move the soil around a lot. 

Floating Wing Cylinders 

  • The floating wing cylinders ensure that the harrow tills the soil at the same depth everywhere. This leads to a smoother seedbed without many uneven spots in the field. 

  • These cylinders of Kelly 1204 are allowed to float and move with the field’s surface, it puts even pressure on the soil. This helps prevent soil compaction. 

  • Without the floating wing cylinders, the wings might not be able to closely follow the shape of the ground, which can lead to uneven pressure. This uneven pressure could make some parts of the harrow dig too deep into the soil, while other parts may not touch the ground well enough. As a result, the harrow’s tilling and residue incorporation would be inconsistent.

Fully Sealed Jockey Wheel Bearing

  • The jockey wheel plays an important role in carrying the weight of the harrow and enabling it to move smoothly across the ground.

  • By being sealed, the bearing and enclosure significantly decrease the requirement for regular maintenance. Their protective barrier keeps dirt and debris out, minimising potential damage and reducing wear and tear on the jockey wheel.

  • As the bearing is sealed this prevents dirt from entering the jockey wheel. Thus, it can rotate smoothly without any hindrances.

  • By implementing a sealed design, the jockey wheel’s durability is greatly enhanced. It becomes capable of withstanding rugged conditions, ensuring its effective performance over an extended period of time.

Two Drawbar Height Positions 

This feature is associated with Kelly 1204 capability to adapt to different types of tractors by offering two drawbar height positions.

  • The drawbar is a part that lets the harrow be towed by the tractor. Drawbar height position means the adjustable height to connect the harrow to the tractor.

  • Tractors vary in size and have different hitch points, resulting in varying drawbar heights. If a harrow has a fixed drawbar height, it may only work with certain tractor models that match that height. This limitation can be challenging for farmers with different-sized tractors or those who plan to switch tractors in the future.

Calling all Farmers! Say hello to Kelly 1204 with not one, but two Drawbar Height positions, we’ve got your farm covered! Just for you!

 Don’t miss out on this big plus!

  • With two drawbar height positions, the harrow gains versatility and adaptability. Its adjustable feature enables setting at different heights, making it compatible with various tractor sizes and hitch points. As a result, the harrow can be used with different tractors without needing any modifications or extra equipment.

Greaseable Wing Pivots 

Adding grease to the wing pivots helps to slow down the process of wear and tear, which in turn decreases the likelihood of them breaking or getting damaged.
