A new range of shear grabs fitted with special Hardox tines that are maintenance free have been launched by SlurryKat in Northern Ireland.
Based in County Armagh, SlurryKat has been a major player in the shear grab market for the past two years and is now further enhancing its models with the new Hardox tines.
SlurryKat’s first grabs brought a new dimension to the market with innovative design features that made them the widest opening grab on the market.
This was achieved by using a longer tine design giving unrivalled capacity to working width characteristics.
The company’s flagship ProCut shear grab range demonstrate unique capacities and attributes ultimate strength in its design for intensive users like large dairy units or biogas plants that have demands for high volume daily feeding programmes.
This latest innovation of a full Hardox tine grab is offered as an alternative to the conventional forged tine grab.
SlurryKat’s Managing Director, Garth Cairns, said: “As we always strive to be the leaders at what we do, building shear grabs was a new market for us in 2015 and was approached no differently to any other products we manufacture.
“I wanted our grabs to be the best on the market so we had to offer something different to the market and we wanted to eliminate almost all the maintenance problems seen on other shear grabs designs.
“After initial design of these special Hardox tines and prototype testing, refining the overall design of the machine was our focus and we have built the machine around these new tines which are totally maintenance free and offer unparalleled long life wear characteristics.
“We feel this innovation will put us clearly at the forefront of the shear grab market,” he added.
The new Hardox ProCut range is available in working widths from 1,950mm (6’4”) to the bigger 3,050mm (10’) grab.
Prices start from £2,850 plus VAT.
