Hello Folks,

I'm in the process of doing a deal for a Goldoni My Special 15 two wheel tractor. The place where I'm doing a deal, has some power harrows I've never seen before. There not Rinaldi. I asked some questions about the power harrow and she is going to get back to me on it.

Here is a photo, if anyone can me anything about it I would be grateful.

Thanks for the offers of help guys. Its not a Rinaldi R2 MTL power harrow or the BCS power harrow. It is a different company power harrow. When I was on the phone to the people that re sell them, I forgot to ask where and who makes it?

Is it a Redexim attachment? Looks pretty small.

No it is not a Redexim attachment, its power harrows. Power harrows prepare ground, can be used to turn sod into seed bed quality if you are willing to do it more than once. After the intial working of the soil, then it will only need to be power harrowed to the depth of 1 inch to create a seed bed.

Why don't you have the dealer bring the machine to your property and give the machine a good workout to see if it will do what you require on your land?  If it is successful,  your main concern will be future parts and service availability.  If the trial is not successful, you will need to look for another machine.

Spare parts aren't going to be an issue Goldoni have made two wheelers and tractors for a long time since either the 40's or 50's. They are well know in the EU. The dealer is in York and I am in the Southwest. Most dealerships no matter if it is two wheel or four wheel, will either have a demostrator or not, or one similar for you to try. They will not let you take a brand new machine, and use it. Because then if I don't want it, they have to sell at a lose because it is a second hand machines with ware and tare.

 

Well I spoke with the re seller today. The harrows are made by a company called Tracma in Italy. The harrows are gear driven and in constant oil bath. The sides are metal, but have some spring system in place which allows expansion in case there are big stones. Sounds a decent machine.

Hello, had an email from the reseller today with more details about the power harrows. I misnamed the company wrong in my last message. The company is called Tecma. They do two power harrow models, called the Zip or Minigirolit. They have different gearboxes and different tines. For a slightly different finish. Both of them look decent quality, and both of them are cheaper than the Rinaldi R2 Power Harrows. They do a number of different sizes.

The Zip is the cheaper of the two.
