As you can probably detect from the photos, the blades on my outfield slitter have worn down.

I have been in touch with my SISIS rep who is checking the model of slitter as i doesn't appear to have any identification numbers on it.

By way of a bit of competition - can any of you guys identify the model? Perhaps how old it is?

The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under who’s shade you do not expect to sit.

Looks like an old DP48 (Deep Piercing x 48 tines). I had one back in the early 80's.

I can still hear the 'clank clank clank' noise as I pulled it down the faiway! A good tool in its day!

Looks very much like a DP slitter but would be the 72. Tines in Pitchcare shop (D7543) @ £10.75 each + VAT hope you can get a quantity discount!

This model when 8 plates wide was known as a HA/6 Sisis now and then made wider models as special build so this probably is a HA/8

I started at Sisis in 76 and this model predates me.

Only one type of tine will fit and this is 9" long
if you mail steve @campeyturfcare.com he will be able to sort you with a price and availability

Cheaper to scource a similar machine second hand. Cost of new tines and the skin lost from knuckles trying to undo all those bolts and the time taken to do them all back up again. Forget it and sell it for scrap.

Hi Mario think it is a GP 72, pretty sure tines are available from garffits in sheffield.

According to my SISIS rep the blades should be 5 inches long.......and, yes, to quote him......Wow! Antiques Roadshow or What?!

Probably not worhwhile trying to replace the tines especially when it's an accident waiting to happen on an H & S level.

Aye , the lack of protective cover while in use would give a Safety Officer kittens....

Nothing succeeds better than a toothless canary

Only just looked at this thread and apart form it looking like something they mounted in front of a WW1 tank for clearing mines. Seriously though, reminded me of a pattison tm spiker I had (similarly no cover) but because I always rememberd playing on such a one as this as a child and gashing my leg on it after slipping that required a couple of stitches (Could have been worse and was long before the phrase ambulance chasers were even thought of) It was just accepted and I was told by my father to be a bit more sensible when playing around sports ground equipment; I was first in line when was told we all needed to get them covered. I'm a bit more sensible when playing around sports equipment these days though. Honest
