Cousins of Emneth finally returned to LAMMA at the NEC in May 2022, and the company used the event as a launch platform for new products.
“These new products are great additions to our product range” says Laura Cousins, managing director of the company. “We are excited to bring them to the market at a time when we feel farming methods are changing and evolving.”
Celebrating their 70th Birthday this year, the company is using its knowledge and experience in designing and manufacturing agricultural machinery, to ensure the new products that come to the market aid in solving problems farmers face in the field.
With the new Low Disturbance Soil Loosener, Cousins aim to prove that sometimes less is more as the company claims there is also less disturbance, lift, mixing, moisture loss, fuel consumption and carbon release.
Both 3m Rigid and 4m Hydraulic Folding Linkage Mounted Models will be on display at LAMMA, both fitted with the new Step Change Low Disturbance Leg and new Shark Fin Roller option.
The Step Change Leg can also be retro-fitted to all existing Cousins V-Form Soil looseners, giving users more versatility with their machine.
The Low Disturbance Soil Loosener has a working depth of 8″ – 12″, and the Step Change Low Disturbance Leg can be changed to either the Micro-Wing, Quik Foot or Level Lift Tine to suit the task in hand.
Tine kit option
Alongside that, Cousins launched a NEW tine kit option to fit their Contour Rolls, widening the versatility of the range. These will be on the stand, fitted to a 12.4m HD HZ Roller c/w 24″ breaker rings.
The 2 rows sprung finger tines fitted ahead of the roller assist in the even spread of crop residues following the combine. They aid chitting, whilst also producing a fine surface tilth when used as a second cultivation pass.
Finally Cousins exhibited a NEW prototype Roller. Suitable for use as a stand alone consolidation tool, the heavy duty roller can also be used in combination with shallow working cultivation implements.
