Caravaggi Straw Chopper / Blower
For many years, we have gotten requests for a “Straw Chopper / blower” to fit walk-behind tractors…Well, here it is! Built by the Caravaggi company of Italy, this tough machine utilizes the PTO power of a walk-behind tractor to chop straw or hay bales (or loose hay, straw, or dry leaves) and blow it out either one OR two discharge ports. Great for producing your own: Animal Bedding –Small animal feed – Mulch – Compost – Erosion control!
This implement enables folks to apply shredded straw, hay, or leaf mulch directly to pathways or garden beds when used with the tractor MOVING (see photo on left), OR, with the tractor stationary, chopped material can either be discharged into fixed location (wheelbarrow, etc) OR a flexible discharge hose can be attached to allow you to blow the shredded material around, for example: blown on a piece of ground you have just worked and seeded with grass, and want some shredded straw in place to keep it from eroding while the grass germinates. (Flexible hose NOT included–but the openings are standard 6”)
Using flexible hose (not included)
to blow shredded straw
