SELF PROPELLED HARVESTERS - CHOPPERS

We currently operate two Claas Jaguar self-propelled harvesters as one of our silage harvesting options. Our choppers are efficient and effective, ensuring a great silage crop. The variable cut lengths which range from 40mm to 60mm allows us, and our customers to choose the best length for their crop. Both harvesters are also equipped with inoculant application systems for both granular and liquid inoculants. Both harvesters are well equipped to handle Taranaki’s conditions and combined with excellent pit compaction from our pit rolling, make for a great crop of grass silage.

BIN TRAILERS - TRUCKS

For cartage on farm and smaller on-road distances we run tractors with bin trailers. We also operate three truck and trailer units as an excellent option for longer, on road carts. All of our truck and trailer units are equipped with tarps to efficiently negate any crop loss during carting.

LOADER WAGONS

Another option for silage harvesting is our Pöttinger loader wagons. Our wagons are efficient and effective, fast without compromising on quality. We currently operate two Pöttinger wagons, a Pöttinger Jumbo Combiline wagon with a 36m3 capacity and a Pöttinger Torro with a 33m3 capacity. The controlled Pöttinger pick-up in the wagons means that the forage is cleaner, and the chopping quality is improved compared to uncontrolled pick-ups in other wagons thus allowing a better silage crop for our customers.

SILAGE COMPACTION

Here at Riverlea we pride ourselves on a good pit. We know that for a quality silage crop, proper silage compaction is crucial. We operate three 11-13 tonne pit tractors all of which are fitted with weight packs and equipped with a buckrakes. The buckrakes carry and spread the crop, creating an even layer across the pit, allowing better compaction and therefore a better product.
