Soil preparation, the Celli innovations
The manufacturer Celli in Forli came to the Umbria EIMA Show demonstrations with their full range of soil preparation machinery led by the Super Maxi/P, a folding power harrow equipped with a box shaped welded frame and a dual ram for lifting the two half units. With a work width of six meters, this rotary harrow has an optional 450 HP gearbox and features a floating lift ram, a cooler for side gearboxes and reservoir, and a packer roller d.555 with hydraulic adjustment. To round out the Super Maxi/p strong points are innovative bottom stone guards welded on the frame. Also up front at the machinery demonstrations was the Scorpio P straw and corn stalk chopper with a work width of five meters. This machine is designed for mulching straw, corn stalks, soya, grass and beet leaves with PTO speed at 1000 rpm, rotor rotation at 1920 rpm and peripheral speed at 63 meters/second.
Among the points of the Celli chopper construction are front fixed counter blades, upper counter blades which can be removed and replaced, a double shielded box frame made of very thick steel sheet and a central gearbox with freewheel safety device. Another Celli machine featured was the Lothar/P folding stone burier ideal for working with high power tractors on clay soil, stony soil or any hard ground surfaces. Standard equipment includes central and lateral gearbox cooling, a floating system for lifting rams, mesh rollers with hydraulic adjustment and a device for reversing rotation with stone burying blades on double flange rotor. Furthermore, the Lothar/P features a rear tailgate with independent spring cushioned comb and side drive shafts with cam clutch and central drive shaft.
