Frontier – Self Propelled Compost Windrow Turners
About the Company:
Windrow Compost Turners
The Frontier Turning System is a controlled airflow and complete mixing system.
Old style straddle turners using flat paddles, knives or rototiller tines were somewhat effective in transforming organic waste from an environmental problem to a more benign product. But with the ever-increasing costs of fertilizers and other soil amendments making high quality compost is fast becoming a viable source of income across the country and around the world.
Every Frontier Windrow Turner is designed to perform every task required to maximize bacterial and fungal activity necessary to produce odor-free valuable compost. The Heart of the Frontier Turning System is found in every Frontier Windrow Turner from the largest to the smallest. They all create a directionally focused Gale-force airflow.
