Light, reversible, mounted ploughs: R41, R4 and RW4

light mounted reversible plough

Simple performance

Like the RC31 plough, these ploughs have a 120x120 mm beam and a 100 mm diameter headstock shaft made of special high grade steel. They have different security systems and clearances.

Each model is suitable for 70 to 150 horsepower tractors.

R41 - for small horsepower tractors

The R41 is the basic model, it has a single mechanical adjuster and is suited to tractors with a fixed wheel width.

R4 - for use with multiple tractors

The headstock is connected to the frame via a parallelogram system. It can be used on any tractor with any wheel width and is easily adjusted for any ploughing width from 12 to 20 inches.

RW4 - for use with variable soil types

The RW4 allows the working width to be adjusted hydraulically, on the move from the cab, from 12 to 20 inches. It can be used on any tractor with any wheel width.

Large choice of options

As on other ploughs in the Grégoire Besson range there is a wide choice of wheels (depth adjusting, transporting, combined etc.) as well as mouldboards and skimmers.
