Derbyshire based Shutts Farm Machinery (Lamma 17, Stand 902 hall 9), will be showcasing the Elho Scorpio 550 5.5m Stone picker, which is new to the UK.
The machine is equipped with hydraulic drive, and this patented hydraulic system directs the power to where the demand is at its greatest. The reverse function can easily clear up any blockages, meaning that there is no need to go out of the tractor. The large and durable lifting tines are flexible in all directions.
Every steel bar in the sieve is replaceable, and every other sieve steel bar can be removed to create a larger gap between the bars (the distance between the sieve bars is 40-110 mm). The sieve bars are resilient and every alternate bar is mounted at different height to prevent wedging.
The wide side rake tines are made of Hardox steel and are firmly welded on to the rotor tube. The rotor bearings are built into the steel tube which gives high durability and good protection. The side rakes can also be reversed to remove blockage. The rake rotor is mounted far from its frame to prevent wedging between the rake rotor and the frame structure.
The Scorpio has a large hopper, with a tipping height of 2,7 metres, which means it can easily reach over the sides of a big trailer. The back wall of the hopper also sifts out soil when tipping the load. The side plates and the hopper lid plate are made of Hardox steel.
Scorpio has a sturdy steel frame, telescopic drawbar with overload protection, wide rakes, large tandem wheels and all functions on the machine is hydraulically driven. No belts or chains to change!
The ELHO Scorpio has an automatic depth adjustment. The machine follows the ground actively. Working depth adjustment has two depth settings that can be manually overridden by the driver’s commands. With the automatic depth adjustment the driver doesn’t need to keep track of how deep the machine goes, this helps a lot on very uneven field or in poor visibility.
The ELHO Scorpio work area is not only the removal of stones from the farm fields but also, for example roads, other type of fields, renovations and construction of green areas. Scorpio 550 is very suitable for contracting.
