Amazingly fuel efficient CT compost turner

Only 30 hp to go through a 2.7x1.5m windrow.

In real world testing a JPH Equipment CT270 compost turner proved to be so well balanced and power efficient that it only used 15 hp to go through a standard size 2.7x1.5m windrow at 400mt/ph.  The test rig was a John Deere 110hp tractor that used 30% power alone, results shown a for a John Deere 110hp pulling a CT270 through a two week old 2.7x1.5m windrow that had not been turned that day.

This test was undertaken on a 2 week old windrow that had been turned 48 hours ago.  Using the CAN bus port we were able to monitor the tractors data as we turned through a standard size 2.7x1.5m windrow at speeds from 200mt to 400mt/ph recording data like throttle position, speed, rpm.
