Did you know today is Plough Monday? Traditionally Plough Monday was the start of the English agricultural year when farmers returned to work after the 12 days of Christmas. So we thought we’d take this opportunity to highlight some of the agricultural essentials on offer from Draper Tools.
There’s a wide range of practical farming maintenance solutions available from Draper Tools including vehicle servicing tools, lifting equipment, pullers and pumps, shovels, fencing tools, generators, space heaters, power tools and much more. Read on to find out about a few of our most popular farming essentials.
The Ground Buster® from the Draper Expert range is a popular farming and outdoor essential. With this tool, the name really does say it all – it’s absolutely ideal for breaking up hard ground including tree roots, solid clay, concrete and rocks. It features heavy duty carbon steel construction and an internal sliding weight that gives a secondary impact to help prevent jarring in the hands, wrists, shoulders, back and neck.
When erecting a fence around the farm the Draper Tools carbon steel Fence Wire Tensioning Tool is a must. This clever tool is essential for tensioning wire (including barbed wire) up to 4mm in diameter before stapling on a fencing post. The Draper Tools Wire Tensioning Tools has 600mm long handle for excellent leverage and a pivoting ‘Durbar’ steel locating foot to grip any post type whilst straining wire.
For farms with lots of logs there is the 300Kg Heavy Duty Log Stand. Manually operated and easily transportable, it is designed for use with chainsaws or manual cutting saws such as bow saws. The powder coated steel frame and robust gripping teeth makes this log saw stand an absolutely ideal assistant. The simple semi-automatic chain tensioning system allows for quick secure loading of logs. The stand is capable of holding logs, branches and wood, up to 300kg in weight.
These are just a few of the agricultural essentials on offer from Draper Tools, there are plenty more in our catalogue and on our website. We hope that Plough Monday brings a positive start to the agricultural year for farmers everywhere.
