Making its public debut on the Benn Agri stand, Alan Ward Engineering showcased grass harrows, front rippers and a prototype one-pass grass seeder.
Based in Co Kilkenny, Alan Ward took up manufacturing this kit earlier this year following a request from Benn Agri. Having worked with Wilson Engineering up to then, while carrying out works locally from his farm, Alan is well accustomed to fabricating, a trait evident in the finish of his products.
The flagship unit on show was the Rejuvenator 3000.
It can be used in combination with the firm’s front ripper (€6,300 plus VAT) to create extra tilth.
This is a 3m unit with two rows of ripper tines, two rows of 12mm tines followed by a self-cleaning prism roller.
The seed is broadcasted before the prism roller using an APV seeding unit. It’s priced at €23,000 plus VAT.
