Single and Twin Rotor Bedformers
Whatever the soil conditions Jones Engineering have the bedformers to suit your requirements. Single or twin rotor machines allow you to achieve a smooth, level 'bed' of consistent quality and density directly onto ploughed or de-stoned land. Providing improved drainage and even germination. The rotors are filled with special 'no panning blades' to create a fine tilth without smearing.Available in widths from 1.45m to 1.85m also with the award winning hydraulic folding three bed machines for the larger grower or contractor.
Years of development have gone into designing a single rotor Bedformer that will allow growers to achive a 'bed' of consistent quality and uniformity on medium to light land or de-stoned land. Jones Engineering Bedformers are fitted with special 'no panning' blades to create a fine tilth without smearing. Soil is held in the machine by a specially developed adjustable hood, which ensures that soil is distributed evenly across the whole of the bed, followed by a crumbler roller to prevent capping.
Many accessories can be specified to suit the crop you are growing such as:
Barley cover crop drills to prevent wind damage.
Nematicide applicators for potatoes.
Special back hoods for polythene.
Such is the versatility of the Jones Engineering single rotor bedformer.
Twin Rotor Bedformer
The Twin Rotor Bedformer, designed over several years, enables a structural bed to be formed leaving a fine tilth on top of the bed.
The front rotor breaks down the soil, conveying it to the rear rotor which breaks up remaining clods, levels, compresses the soil and rakes the surface.
This process allows the soil to be graded, leaving fine soil at the surface and small, medium and large clods respectively, underneath the surface.
Subsequently producing a structured sowing bed creating correct drainage, controlled humidity and even germination of your crops.
The Jones Engineering Triple Bedformer is designed for the larger grower or contractor. The three bed, hydraulic folding machine is easily powered by a medium sized tractor on destoned land, yet big enough to withstand large tractors on heavy land, allowing high daily work output.
The Triple Bedformer has been awarded a double accolade in the form of the RASE Silver medal and the Grower Award for machinery, 2002. Jones Engineering customers interviewed by RASE judges rated the bedformer as 'excellent, competitive in price and fully effective in the field' and that it 'outclassed the imported competition'. Winning the Grower Award because of it's clear contribution to further efficiency in the large scale vegetable growing industry'.
Proving that Jones Engineering are 'first in the field'.
