The Vari-Roll is a unique 2-in-1 roll that can vary its size to work with a set of Disc Harrows or a Double Press. And it can also then extend itself to a normal working width, for tramlines – 12m, 18m or 24m.
Or to look it another way, the roll can extend from 4.65m to 6.55m. And it’s this unusual idea that attracted Francis Moody of North Lincolnshire, to the Vari-Roll.
“I use the roll because it can vary its working width and it has saved me the cost of buying two rolls. If I didn’t have the Vari-Roll, I would have probably just carried on using a 6.5 metre roll.”
Vari-Roll saves you having to buy two separate rolls – one for your Disc Harrow or Double Press and another roll for rolling before, or after, drilling.
Francis farms 740 acres and will be using his Vari-Roll in the Spring and Autumn on cereals, and also on peas and oil-seed rape. He adds: “The Vari-Roll will be towed behind a cultipress.
If required, you can add a levelling system to their Vari-Roll. Making it an adaptable piece of machinery for arable farmers.
With thanks to Francis for kindly agreeing to talk to us about his Vari-Roll.
