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.

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
