Restyling under the hallmark of technological innovation is continuous for the Selvatici range preparing for the Paris SIMA event with the unveiling of the series 150.150 spading machines in renewed versions. The technical work performed on this line of machines by the manufacturer located in San Lazzaro di Savena, near Bologna, involved mainly the frame of the spaders with a new design already tried and tested with success on the top power models. Thanks to the revision of the frame, these machines are now capable not only of taking advantage of the pump effect of the lower connecting rods to avoid clogging of the machine by residues but also of supporting the three-point hitch variable for length to limit rear bounce to a minimum, facilitate the maneuverability of the tractor and, last but not least, increase safety in the operations of the machine. Coming as standard equipment are a lever-shift three-speed gearbox for tractors with PTOs at 540 and 1000 RPM, a hood cover for optimum leveling of the soil and a slide for regulating the depth of the work. Among the options offered for the 150.150 series are double hoods spiked laterally with long shares for operations on sandy terrain, rounded shares for work on stony ground and a rear three-point hitch for combined work with connecting rods with prefabricated steel bearings for lubrication every fifty hours. Another strong point for the 150.150 line is the option to customize the machine, a feature which confers outstanding flexibility on these new Selvatici spading machines. The series is available in widths of 150 cm to 400 cm, from 6 to 16 shares, for power from 50 to 150 Hp and depths of up to 35 cm.
