SideTool’s ALL NEW SCX Straw Crimper lets you say good-bye to poorly secured, uneven straw mulch installation due to rocks, roots, stumps and even sidewalks. Why? Because each SCX mulch crimper disc can pivot left and right and up and down independently from each other which is a big advantage over other straw crimpers. No other mulch crimper offers this time saving, quality installation feature.

When a conventional, single-shaft crimper hits a rock, the whole machine lifts up and can totally disengage the soil. Not so with the SCX straw crimper. When an SCX crimper disc hits an object, it floats over or pivots around it, while the other discs remain firmly engaged with the soil. The disc pivoting action also allows for smoother, tighter turns for faster installation.

These features along with the SCX’s sturdy construction and ease of operation let you confidently and uniformly crimp straw- that will stay crimped- to keep soil in place and undisturbed... even in high winds or heavy rainfall!
