Goliath 8 - 8' Roller Crimper-90" Drum Width - Wt 1,445 lbs - The Goliath Crimper Roller is the perfect tool for wildlife managers wanting to mechanically kill or terminate cover crops without the use of expensive chemicals. Using the Goliath will preserve soil moisture, reduce ground temperatures, prevent week growth and the terminated cover crop adds a layer of organic, slow release fertilizer at the surface of the soil where new crops can absorb the nutrients. The Goliath Crimper Roller can be mounted on the front or rear of your tractor, and using the weight of the machine, rolls over the cover crop, pressing it down, while the fins will crimp the cover crop plant in multiple places. This effectively cuts off the ciculatory system of the plant, causing it to die. The Goliath also lays the cover crop down flat on the ground, acting as a 'weed protection mat' and preventing sunlight from dryng the soil.
