[00:01:47] The frame is built tank-tough with commercial quality construction to power through the most demanding of jobs. All day, every day.
[00:01:57] The patented leveling blade floats to automatically catch high areas and drop material into lower areas without changing the overall grade. This adjustable floating leveling blade is used for fine finished grading to maintain the general contour of the ground while leveling the top couple of inches. This is an ideal everyday setting for frequent grooming of horse arenas, grading driveways, or preparing soil for seed or sod. This easy to use, floating action allows the other ground engaging components to remain at work while the blade floats on top, creating a consistently level surface. However, if more aggressive, contour changing, cut and fill grading is required, the blade may be locked down like a box blade to move a larger amount of material.
[00:02:46] Positioned behind the leveling blade, are the scarifying teeth. These teeth loosen the ground and our adjustable from zero to one hundred and seventy eight millimeters below grade. Their rigid design, spacing, and angle of entry into the ground enables these teeth to loosen even the hardest of materials. The teeth are intentionally positioned behind the blade to loosen the material compacted by the grading blade. This positioning is ideal for horse arenas and seedbed preparation as it ensures a loosened final surface.
[00:03:17] If a level and compacted surface is desired, such as for driveway grading, simply remove the scarifiers on the final pass. The tips of these teeth are bolted on, and easily replaceable to minimize maintenance costs.
The final ground contact point is the hardened steel finish rake. This laser cut rake pulverizes clumps of material and leaves a beautiful signature finish behind. But it doesn’t stop there. When pushing backward, this rake transforms your tractor into a mini dozer. Now you can push material backwards in the low areas, rip out vegetation and saplings, slice sod and push debris into piles. This forward and reverse operation extends the capability of any tractor and saves a massive amount of time.
The rake of the TR3 is 19 millimeters thick and durable for long life, and it’s even replaceable in 300 millimeter sections.
The entire TR3 rake rests on its patented and adjustable foam filled stabilizing engage wheels. By preventing the TR3 from undulating with the tractor, these wheels gauge the depth of scarifying, maintain level and consistent travel when grading, and eliminate gouging while pushing backward. These wheels make the TR3 incredibly easy to use so that anyone who is qualified to operate a tractor can produce amazing results. For long service life, the tires or foam filled to prevent flats. And all hubs, bearings, and spindles are replaceable. The wheels can be removed for extra aggressiveness or offset from side to side to reestablish a driveway crown.
