Milled peat production

MERIPEAT Milled peat production

Suokone has developed together with customers functional and powerful machinery for all stages of milled peat production, including millers, harrowers, ridgers, loaders and trailers. The design and quality of all our products is based on decades of experience with peat machinery: these machines are long-lasting and effectively produce high-quality peat – from one day to the next!

  • Production millers are suitable for both large-scale and small-scale production of milled peat.
  • Spoon-type harrowers turn the peat to facilitate drying and are suitable for both single- and multi-harvest methods.
  • Milled peat ridgers are used to form swathes of dry milled peat effectively and precisely before harvesting.
  • V-type milled peat ridgers are used to gather the milled peat into piles or directly into the trailer.
  • Milled peat loaders are used to load the milled peat into the trailer using a belt conveyor. Our loaders are lightweight and compact but also durable.
  • Peat trailers are suitable for transporting both sod peat and milled peat. Our peat trailers feature eight bogie wheels and a side-tilting skip.
  • Mechanical harvesters are used to collect the milled peat from the windrows and transport it to the stock pile with low fuel consumption.
  • Profilers are used to maintain an optimal profile along the production strip throughout the summer. The excess peat from the sides of ditches is spread evenly across the entire width of the strip and can then be collected into the peat stack during normal milled peat production.

Production millers for preparing fields

MERIPEAT production millers are suitable for both large-scale and small-scale production of milled peat. The three-element construction helps keep fields level throughout the production period. The design also eliminates the need for separate bearings between elements. The transmission is mechanical, and the middle element houses transmissions at each end. These can be either chain transmissions or gear boxes, enabling the use of high-powered tractors even in extreme conditions. The cutters have been manufactured from superior quality abrasion-resistant steel. Production millers attach to the tractor’s 3-point linkage (ridger model) or tow hook towable.

Spoon-type harrowers for single- and multi-harvest methods

The MPH-18 MH spoon-type harrower is pulled behind the tractor and is suitable for both single- and multi-harvesting methods. The steel spoon-type harrows are mechanically extremely durable and wear-resistant. The light structure and large tyres ensure steady transportation even across soft surfaces.

The drawbar can be set in two different operating positions. For multi-harvesting, the drawbar is used in the side position, enabling the tractor to be driven alongside the windrow. Also, the spoons in the central element can be raised when multi-harvesting

Ecofield mechanical harvester for environmentally friendly peat harvesting

The well-balanced and lightweight Ecofield EF 45 mechanical harvester moves effortlessly across bogs. The front-fitted loading conveyor increases loading efficiency and facilitates supervision of the work. The pusher-type loading conveyor enables twin-harvest windrows to be harvested easily and tidily. The chain type unloading conveyor ensures, when crossing a stock pile, the load is evenly distributed as a smooth stream, without any risk of becoming unstable.

The advanced wheel structure and optimal weight distribution provide substantially lower fuel consumption than standard machinery. Hydraulic drive can be activated on while driving. Ecofield is suitable for use with tractors with a 1000 rpm PTO.

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 passenger car.

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