The McConnel Pasturator is an essential tool in combating surface compaction, slitting through the soil and opening up fissures for water percolation.


Created for farmers, contractors and specialists, the Pasturator comes in 2.5m and 3.0m working widths with a choice of blade configurations. The larger 3.0m model can be specced with either 42 or 100 hard-wearing boron steel slitting blades which deliver maximum depth for minimal soil disruption. The 2.5m model offers a choice of 36 or 80 blades.

Simple to use, the 2.5m Pasturator is light enough to work on a 50hp tractor, and can open up the ground to a depth of 250mm.
