NOTE - Since this article was published, the LAMMA show has been postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. It will now take place in May 2022. 

A TRACTOR-mounted mulcher that can produce a fine and firm tilth ready for woodland replanting or sowing of other crops as part of a land regeneration project will be a feature of the Spaldings stand at the LAMMA show next month. 

The TMC Cancela MPK-225 is one of an extensive range of heavy-duty mulchers for tractors, specialist vehicles and excavators supplied throughout the UK and Ireland by the firm.

It has a working width of 2.25 m (a 2.50 m version is also available), operates on the rear three-point linkage of a 220–300 hp tractor, and has 58 rigidly-mounted hammers set in a helix pattern.

Each hammer has a single carbide tip that shreds residue against six rows of replaceable counter knives and incorporates the resulting mulched material into finely tilled topsoil.

Unlike other machines in the extensive range of tractor, skid-steer loader and excavator-mounted mulchers from TMC Cancela, the MPK has a two-speed gearbox, providing a slower rotor speed for shredding and incorporation, and a faster speed for grinding away tree stumps up to 450 mm in diameter.

Another feature unique to this model is a steel finishing roller equipped with six serrated traction rings and mounted on hydraulic cylinders to regulate the working depth and lift the roller out of work when not required.

The LAMMA show will take place on January 11 and 12, 2022, at the NEC in Birmingham.
