UNICO Mounted Plough

Introduction

UNICO Mounted Plough

Maschio UNICO Plough

There are two model ranges. The UNICO M is the mid-range line suitable for tractors up to200hp and topping out at five furrows.

The heavy duty UNICO L shares many of its smaller sibling’s features but is built to cope with up to 300hp up front.  It is available in three, four, five and six furrow formats.

With a time-proven track record, selling in big numbers across Europe, the Maschio UNICO plough has certain key features that make it one of the best performers in the field – and one of the easiest to set-up and adjust:

Fast front furrow width adjustment - a double-arm parallelogram linkage ensures the line-of-pull remains straight and true as front-furrow settings are altered hydraulically.

Variable working width - mechanical or hydraulic vary-width. Bolt adjustment provides fine-tuning in 5cm increments – 27cm-54cm (depending on plough specification) while on the move hydraulic adjustment runs from 25cm–55cm. 

Turnover memory function - closes the bodies up automatically when turning the plough over to ensure nothing hits the ground. Once back in its working position it returns to the preset position. However, unlike other ploughs it does not do it by closing up the vary width linkage. Instead, it uses the beam alignment ram which means the pins, bushes and link rods do not get worn with every turnover.

Inter-body clearance of 95cm and under beam clearance of 80cm. Other options available.

Robust build - UNICO M - 120mm x 120mm reinforced box section beam with 100mm headstock turnover shaft on 3+1 furrows and 120mm shaft for 4 and 5 furrow models. UNICO L Heavy Duty - 140mm x 140mm beam and 130mm shaft.

Hydraulic auto-reset - centralised hydro-pneumatic circuit with a piston nitrogen accumulator which makes for faster leg reset. First body fitted with a larger diameter cylinder for higher trip pressure as the leading point going into unbroken ground. Non-stop system can be controlled on the move and allows both vertical and horizontal movement. 

Quick-fit, rapid-adjust skimmers - a simple pin-and-hole set-up means achieving optimal trash burial is an easy task.

Simple body change – switching between different sizes and types of mouldboard is a straightforward job that involves loosening a few bolts. Slatted and conventional bodies are available, many of which are interchangeable with other popular ploughs on the market.
