Palatine Engineering was established by Limerick man Ken Smyth in 2015 after he originally developed a tined grass harrow for use on his family farm.
Today, Palatine offers three models of grass harrows, with working widths of 3m, 4.5m and 6m. These machines have transport widths starting at 2.5m.
Palatine offers the grass harrow with or without a seeder. Depending on the customers’ requirements, the firm can fit a small spinner broadcaster to the harrow or an air seeder.
GÜttler air seeders are generally fitted to wider machines. The air seeders are offered in both fixed and variable ground speeds.
The Palatine harrows come with six rows of tines and galvanised tine frames which have oversized main pivots with greaseable replaceable bushes.
Its Terra-Link design allows the tine units to follow the contours of the land.
The main frame is shared between GH120, GH180 and GH240 versions, so it is possible to convert to different widths at a later stage if desired.
The harrows are designed with multiple tine angle positions to suit differing conditions and crops. The smaller GH120 and GH180 have two depth-control wheels, while the GH240 has four as standard. The transport latch for folding is controlled from the cab.
The 3m GH120 with a spinner broadcaster is priced at €3,335 plus VAT.
