Watch the Quick-Split 7 in action

The QuikSplit is a super fast, powerful and portable machine, with a build quality you expect from Portek.

Portek Quick Split 7

With a convenient handle, strong chassis and wheels, the QuikSplit can easily be positioned on any flat ground, ready to start work. Two large spinning flywheels, powered by a 1.5kw electric motor, drive the powerful ram with a force of 7 tonnes. The machine uses kinetic energy to hit your logs with high impact; cutting them quickly and safely.

For the release mechanism, 2 hands are needed. One to engage the drive mechanism, the other to release the ram. The ram springs back in no time at all, ready for the next log. The heavy duty steel guards ensures you are safe from the mechanics – and the safety switch is located next to the handles, for extra fast stopping if required.

Autumn leaves – Beautiful, but back-breaking

Making Light Work of Leaves

“Leaves covered pavement like soggy cereal,” wrote Patricia Cornwell in her novel The Body Farm, and whilst autumn is a magical season of soft russet and saffron shades on a changing landscape, it does create work for the gardener.

Draper Leaf Rakes

Truro Tractors has a range of tools to make your job easier.  Starting at the small end of the scale, choose from a selection of leaf rakes. The Draper Garden Leaf Rake comes in two sizes: large 550mm (£5.70), and extra wide 700mm (£13.20 – pictured).

The large rake has a 23-tooth head, whilst the extra wide model has 30 teeth. Both tools have comfortable handles of varnished natural wood; and heads made from strong, flexible plastic, and make raking the grass much easier and quicker.

Darlac Rake ‘n’ Shift

Take a new look at grounds maintenance with the Darlac Rake ‘n’ Shift innovation.

Amazingly lightweight with a long handle to eliminate backache – the large model also has a curved handle to assist use with larger loads. Use as a standard rake for leaves, grass cuttings, clippings etc, then turn over and shovel up.

Honda Cordless Leaf Blower

Wessex Log Splitters at Truro Tractors

Log Splitters by Wessex International

Wessex log splitters are a popular item at Truro Tractors – even more so at this time of year.  Autumn is a good season to fell trees as the birds have finished nesting, and foliage is starting to die back, making it easier to see what you are doing.

Wessex International offers two versions of tractor mounted log splitters, designed to make the time-consuming chore of log splitting, faster and safer.  Pop down to the Chacewater branch of Truro Tractors, and find out which one is best suited to your requirements.

LS100 – Vertical Log Splitter

The Wessex Country LS-100 logsplitter is a top seller at Truro Tractors.  Strong, simple, and a quick, easy fit to any tractor with a category 1 three-point linkage, the LS-100 powers through logs effortlessly, with up to 10 ton of hydraulic splitting force (depending on tractor hydraulics).

A floor-level splitting bed means it’s easy to position logs into place, while two-handed operation keeps the user safe.

HLS100 Horiztonal Log Splitter

The Wessex HLS100 horizontal logsplitter further reduces back strain that is associated with logsplitting.

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3

  1. Lift a log on to  the HLS-100 platform
  2. Pull the HLS-100 saftey handles towards you
  3. The log splits and travels along the loading shoot and into a trailer or wheel barrow

Call your local branch of Truro Tractors and ask about the Wessex International log splitters, today.

And if you fancy the compact New Holland Boomer 25 featured in the photographs, you can pick one up for the bargain price of £8,950 net. Likewise, the Beaconsfield 1.2T tipping trailer is also for sale. Talk to Truro Tractors, and strike a deal!
