Designed to keep things clean and tidy onfarm or in a warehouse, Italian-made Tornado vacuum systems from Agriquip come in three models.

The GX 390 and GX 630 are designed for tail or sideboard mounting, powered by 13 or 21hp Honda engines, or tractor mounted with a PTO set-up requiring 13hp at the shaft.

Suction is created by a 390mm fan, which in the case of units mounted to the side or rear of trucks or pick-ups, delivers the collected debris directly onto the load platform via an adjustable rotary ejection pipe.

A 200mm diameter, 6m suction hose is said to be light to handle and resistant to wear.
