Overview


During the late 1960s, Radium had won contracts to manufacture tillage equipment for various local and international companies. After several years of producing these products, Radium saw they needed to be changed to suit local farming practices. Subsequently, Radium embarked on a research and development project in conjunction with the former Department of Agricultural Technical Services. The project was aimed at developing a product that could work up to depths of 500 mm without changing the angle of the shear. The outcome of this was the development of the four-lever trip mechanism. The four-lever trip mechanism allows the angle of the shear to remain constant. It can also effectively 'trip out' when an obstacle in the soil is encountered. Once the trip mechanism was developed, a strong, robust frame was required. Radium therefore developed the A-frame, which was able to carry the heavy tine assemblies. All that remained for Radium was to develop a shear with a tine that was able to overcome the 'bulldozing' effect of its predecessors. Subsequently, Mike Roest developed a V-sweep that did not smear and, at a later stage, the hammerhead shear. The hammerhead shear lifts the soil two inches and when the soil flows over the shear it breaks up by itself. Therefore, the hammerhead shear uses the least amount of energy per cubic meter of soil disturbed. The C-shaped tine allows the soil to flow freely over the shear, while creating an angle on the surface that reduces the packing of the material that is left on top of the soil profile.
