Introduction

Terrator-Slitter LTA

What does this do?

Maintaining paddocks means you have to pay attention to the structure of the soil. Often the soil becomes compacted and loses all its structure, particularly if it’s wet ground or in areas of heavy use such as gateways or fencelines. The key processes for improving ground quality are introducing air into the soil and relieving compaction – the Logic Terrator does both. When the Terrator is towed over the compacted ground it produces slits in the soil surface which help to improve drainage and aeration. As each blades enters the ground it  bring soil to the surface which  With repeated use, the Terrator produces a tilth for sowing seed.

Use the Terrator over the whole paddock on a regular basis and it allows air down to the grass roots, promoting healthy growth. In problem areas, make a few passes to really break the surface up. This will assist the productivity of that awkward patch of paddock that never produces much in the way of grazing. Your horse will thank you for it.

Why do I need one?

It’s a big timesaver and works wonders for the condition of compacted soil in paddocks and fields. Use it on a regular basis (it only takes a few minutes to run it over the entire paddock) to keep soil structure aerated.

Where do I use it?

Paddocks and fields. Never leave any implements out after use where animals can come into contact with them – you can work out why!

How does it work?

Tow the Terrator into the paddock (use a low-ground pressure vehicle where possible to avoid further compaction). Lower the blades onto the surface then tow the unit over the ground until the surface is well and truly aerated. Repeat as necessary. Watch the grass grow. Watch the horse eat the grass. Give self a pat on the back: better land management, better grazing and a neater-looking paddock!
