What led to the development of the M-FRAME 319?
The turf industry lacked the ability to make use of mowing units on a conventional tractor. Maredo® accepted the challenge of developing an innovative piece of machinery which can be attached to the 3 point CAT 1 connection of any 20-45 HP (compact) tractor, allowing the operation of three of Maredo's famous heads - the MTOOLS.
How does it operate?
The M-FRAME was developed with the idea of being a driveline for the three attachable heads. The "mechanical driveline " consists of PTO shafts and gearboxes, which when combined, is extremely and powerful. The connection point is flexible and is able to follow the slight contours of a sports field surface. It is possible to make wide-turns with the M-FRAME on a field. This makes the M-FRAME and MTOOLS ideal for use on Golf Course Fairways, Sportsfields, parks, etc.
Any other operation specifics regarding the M-FRAME?
The overall working width of the M-FRAME with 3 MTOOL heads attached is 1900mm. It fits on any 20-45 HP (compact)tractors, which have a 3 point CAT 1 connection and a 540 PTO. The weight of the M-FRAME 319 alone, is 130kg. Each set of attachments has it's own weight to take into consideration when calculating the total weight of the operation unit.
