Netherlands manufacturer Safertractors has appointed Lynx Engineering as the UK and Ireland importer for the Agribumber product range.

The Agribumber is a variable front weight and tractor bumper system, available in weights from 350kg up to 2,000kg and with more than 60 models including front-linkage mounted units and products which leave the front linkage and PTO free to use.

Lynx will display examples from both the Baseline and Fronthitch Line ranges at shows across the summer, including the Balmoral Show, Cereals and the Royal Highland Show.

The Baseline is designed to fit around the front linkage, leaving the arms free to be used. It can also be fitted with add-on weights to ballast the front axle for better traction. Weights range from 350kg up to 1,000kg and they are designed for medium sized tractors from 100hp up to 240hp.

Fronthitch Line units are a new addition to the portfolio, comprising a 65-litre toolbox weight fitted to the tractor’s linkage. Using variable density technology, the size of the weight does not change, but can be specified between 400kg and 1,000kg.

Other ranges offered include the Weightline series of permanently mounted weights between 400kg and 2,000kg, and the Toolbox Line of 145-litre cargo boxes with weights from 400kg up to 1,800kg.

Lynx Engineering managing director, Nick Ewbank, said: “Agribumper is an excellent complement to our existing range of front-mounted weights. Variable front weights and the ability to add weight leaving the front linkage and PTO free to use gives the farmer real flexibility.”

“The Agribumper system is mounted closer to the tractor than any other front weight block, so it doesn’t make the tractor longer than necessary,” he added. “Without doubt, the visibility and safety features which come as standard across the Agribumper range, make an important contribution to road safety. As modern tractors continue to get bigger, heavier and faster, being seen quickly by other road users in all weather conditions, day or night, is a potentially life-saving consideration.”
