Heavy-Duty Compost Stirrer
The 7-ft. long stirring machine is designed to work its way through long, 7 to 14-ft. wide piles of compost. Trailer-mounted so that it can be moved freely up and down, it consists of a long shaft fitted with closely mounted sets of tiller-type tines that thoroughly work their way through heavy mixes of manure, soil and other organic materials. It requires a minimum 60 hp. tractor and will work it's way through about 1,000 ft. of compost per hour. Key to success of the machine, according to Cucchi, is the way it mixes up compost without disturbing the shape of the pile.
Sells for about $6,000.
