For many years Seppi have produced machinery for mulching forestry waste and land cleaning. In more recent times, they have produced machines for crushing stones, resurfacing roads and mulching stumps below ground level.
Now Seppi have brought all of these tasks into the capability of one single machine - the 'Multiforst'.
Based on the earlier 'Midiforst DR', the new 'Multiforst' comes equipped with a fixed knife motor with much longer knife supports. This allows the machine to work down to a depth of 20cm. The machine is designed to handle vegetation up to 25cm in diameter and stones up to 20cm - depending on the type of stone.
The 'Multiforst' is able to tackle these different types of work as it can be worked at either 1000rpm pto speed for vegetation or 540rpm pto speed for work with stones.
Four widths of machine are available between 1.75m (69") and 2.5m (89"). The maximum power that may be used is 107KW (146HP).
A roller may be bolted to the hydraulic door to act as a compactor when resurfacing roads, special skids keep the machine in work on hard surfaces.
This new machine from the Italian manufacturers is a versatile machine that will find a ready market with contractors who are faced with multi-tasks on the same site.
Many tractors can now be switched between 1000rpm and 540rpm by an in-cab control; so change over could not be easier!
