Bog clearing

MERIPEAT bog clearing machinery – No. 1 in the industry

The bog clearing and maintaining machines developed and manufactured by Finnish company Suokone. Machinery is ideal for both clearing new peat production areas and reconditioning existing ones. The same machinery can also be used to clear new farm land on peat land.

  • Preparing millers are used to clear surface vegetation and cut through trees and stumps in the bog.
  • Screw ditchers are the perfect tool for ditching, even when there is ground frost.
  • Screw levellers are used to shape peat strips to keep them dry, even in rainy summers.
  • Profilers are used to level raised ditch borders and spread the excess peat evenly across the entire width of the strip. The excess peat can then be collected into the peat stack during normal milled peat production. Using the profiler 4-5 times a summer significantly reduces the amount of maintaining work needed in the autumn.

PREPARING MILLERS

MJK preparing millers for clearing new bogs and maintaining old ones

MJK preparing millers are designed for clearing new peat production areas and annual maintaining of existing strips. The rotor is equipped with knife cutters that efficiently cut through any trees or stumps in the bog. Preparing millers are also ideal for transforming peatland into farm land.

Features:

The hydraulic rear roller compresses the milled peat when driving in the forward direction. When driving in reverse, it can be used to knock over and compress trees and shrubs against the ground. The rear roller also supports the machine, reducing the surface pressure of the tractor-implement combination.

The POC-3000 safety clutch effectively protects the transmission against excessive loads that can occur frequently when facing stones, for example.

MJSP preparing millers for conditioning during production and for annual maintaining

MJSP preparing millers are ideal for annual maintaining, as well as for crushing stumps during production. The lightweight structure allows them to be used in soft conditions, while their robustness and capacity also makes them suitable for clearing new bogs. The rotor is equipped with knife cutters that efficiently cut through any trees or stumps in the bog. Preparing millers are also ideal for transforming peatland into farm land.

Features:

SCREW DITCHERS

Screw ditchers for effective ditching on peatland

OJK screw ditchers are the perfect tool for ditching on peatland in all conditions. The auger effectively cuts any trees, roots or stumps in the bog, and ditching can be carried out even when there is ground frost. A single pass is required to create a clean ditch at the maximum depth. Peat is thrown a long distance on each side of the ditch and distributed evenly across the strip.

Features:

Hydraulic rear plates prevent peat from being thrown back into the ditch, especially when cleaning old ditches. Peat is thrown a long distance on each side of the ditch and distributed evenly across the strip, while the rear plates also level the sides of the ditch. The plates also support the implement when pressed against the sides.

Carbide cutters enable ditching even when there is ground frost. The cutters also facilitate ditching in areas where there are lots of trees and shrubs, while also protecting the auger against rocks.

The POC-3000 safety clutch effectively protects the transmission against excessive loads that can occur frequently when ditching.

SCREW LEVELLERS

Screw levellers for shaping peat strips and spreading peat from ditches

The RT-600 TT is a towable screw leveller that is pulled behind the tractor. Screw levellers are designed for clearing bogs and maintaining existing peat production strips in autumn. In addition, the RT-600 TT can be used to clear new farm land. The screw leveller can be equipped with a special heavy-duty auger to cope with high-mineral soils.

Features:

Hydraulic double bogies support the weight of the implement and control the desired angle and profile. The large-diameter bogies spread the weight of the implement evenly, creating a totally level surface.

The POC-3000 safety clutch effectively protects the transmission against excessive loads that can occur when facing stones, for example.

Screw levellers can be specified with a road transportation kit that is easy to attach and remove. The screw leveller can then be transported lengthwise behind a tractor, making it easy to move from one worksite to another.

The RT-400 MG is a screw leveller that attaches to the 3-point linkage of the tractor. Screw levellers are designed for clearing bogs and maintaining existing peat production strips in autumn. In addition, the RT-400 MG can be used to level peat from ditches. The attachment frame can be rotated, enabling the implement to be used when driving either forwards or in reverse.

Features:

The hydraulic rear roller supports the weight of the implement and controls the desired angle when driving in the forward direction.

PROFILER

Profilers for shaping peat strips during production

The PRF-240 profiler has been designed for shaping peat strips during production. It can be used to level raised ditch borders and spread the excess peat evenly across the entire width of the strip. The excess peat can then be collected into the peat stack during normal milled peat production. Using the profiler 2-3 times a season helps keep production strips in optimal condition without any further steps required.

The simple and sturdy design of the PRF-240 profiler enables it to be used effectively on both big and small peatlands.

Profilers can be specified with a road transportation kit that makes it easy to move from one worksite to another, even using a civil car.

The transmission has two T-gears that enable optimal angles for the PTO shaft.
