WINDROW / SLASHER

What separates Van Zyl Steelworks from our competition is our versatility, resourcefulness and ability to cater to farmers’ specialised needs. With every innovation, we aim to set the benchmark for functionality, durability and effectiveness in our local market. Our research into farm slasher design is what led us to make a few unique changes to our models, so that we can benefit South African farmer. Structurally, a curved 12mm disc plate gives our models more integral strength, while reducing the chance for foreign objects to make their way into the machine’s vulnerable interior. The gearbox has been mounted at a forward slope which allows the swing blade to generate more torque, thereby speeding up the operation. By using our machinery, tractor operators can complete the job in less time, increasing productivity while reduction operational costs.

We currently deal with a variety models, among them the VHZ 15/80, VHZ 18/80 and the Windrow 3M. The two VHZ models differ slightly in some areas, where the 15/80 is marked at 1500mms in machine size and 55kw in tractor capacity vs. the 18/80, marked at 1800mm in machine size and 65kw in tractor capacity. A larger model we manufacture is the Windrow 3M model, with a tractor capacity of 80kw and a machine size of 3000mm.

All of our innovative designs were created with care, pride and with the South African farmer in mind.

MODELS / WINDROW

  • VHZ 15/80

Tractor capacity = 55kw

Machine size = 1 500mm

Gearbox with slip clutch PTO = 55kw

  • VHZ 18/80

Tractor capacity = 65kw

Machine size = 1 800mm

Gearbox with slip clutch PTO = 55kw

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Cutting height = 10mm - 160mm
  • blades are generally available from any agricultural market = 4x Banana blades
  • PTO included
  • Italian COMER gearbox
  • Hitching pins included
  • Heavy-duty frame made of 5mm plate
  • Plate is generally available from any agricultural market

UNIQUE ADVANTAGES

  • Round disc 12mm plate
  • The plate is shaped in a curved design that attains better strength
  • A round disc reduces the chance to chance for strange objects which might lead to damage as these objects can be moved away
  • The gearbox is mounted at a forward slope that allows the swing blade to generate more torque 
  • This results isn the tractor working at a faster gear speed
  • Productivity improves and operational cost are reduced
  • Weight = 850kg on 1 800kg machine heavier that most oppponents = MORE WIEGHT MORE VALUE

WINDROW 3M

  • Tractor capacity = 80kw
  • Machine size 3 000mm
  • Cutting height = 10-160mm
  • blade is generally available from an agricultural market = 8 banana blades
  • PTO driven with a slip clutch to a central gearbox (T-BOX)
  • Italian COMER gearbox = 3 (1 000kbox 80kw; 2 side boxes 55kw)
  • Hitch pins included
  • Heavy duty frame is made of 5mm plate
  • Plate is generally available at anny agricultural market
