    Tine Length Measurement

    Tine length is from the overall length of the tine, from the nut right out to the point. This means that a 0.98m long tine has around 850mm of usable length to spear into a bale. The other 130mm of the tine is inside or behind the backframe. Measurements are approximate.

    Rata Silage Grab testimonial from Dan Jackson - Dairy farmer

    I got hold of Rata when I needed a Silage Grab, Forks & Tow Hitch. From past experience I had been impressed with the durability & simplicity of the gear. The Silage Grab has performed very well & the Tow Hitch makes the job so much easier, this one is well up there!
    Very high rated - so I can virtually pick up any load.

    They've definitely helped me out!
