Long or short grass is no problem for the Wessex ProLine STC flail collector.

It’s fitted with a large diameter steel drum rotor, featuring four rows of closely spaced flails, and two rows of draft paddles to create the suction for collecting the grass.

Because the STC has no narrow throat, as do many collectors, long or short grass will be collected efficiently without blocking, even in wet conditions, which makes it ideal for long grass applications i.e, end of season clearance of wild flower meadows or golf course rough. Not only that, the STC leaves a fine finish on short turf as well.

The ProLine STC comes in 1.2m and 1.8m working widths and is semi-mounted to the tractor to allow the brush to follow the ground contours in work, and then be lifted out of work for transport. As the whole machine is not lifted on the linkage, the STC can be operated behind a small tractor with limited lifting capacity. The machine runs on its own four wheels, totally independent of the tractor. The front wheels are fully castoring and are re-positioned by a simple pin mechanism to adjust the working height, whilst the two rear wheels have flotation tyres to keep turf compaction to a minimum.

Power is transmitted from the tractor through a heavy cast gearbox and belt drive to the rotor.

The STC collector series is an all-year- round machine and ideal for various applications in its different modes. As well as cutting & collecting the golf course rough with the verti-cutting knived fitted, you can use it to scarify a sports pitch and by fitting the brush rotor large areas of fallen autumn leaves can be collected.
