The machine combination, possibly based in Wales, travelled around the country to prepare drier felled sites for planting. The hydraulically driven toothed discs at the back raked the brash into rows and also scuffed the surface of the ground leaving strips of brash clear but cultivated ground where squads planted the trees.
