FAQ

FAQ - SUMO

1. Why does the new Mounted Trio have a smaller Multipacka than the older models?

To make it lighter, allowing more stagger of the components. With the drive lugs, the overall diameter of the Multipacka is the same as pre 2012 models, ensuring it turns in adverse conditions.

2. What horse power do I need to pull a 3m Mounted Trio?

As always, it depends on the depth you want to run the machine at and your soil type. We recommend anywhere between 140-280hp.

3. Will the Versaplus be coming back out?

Never say never.
