Forges De Niaux Disc Blades

The ongoing running costs of tillage machinery is an increasing factor considered by today’s farmers and contractors. The large geographical variety of NZ’s soil types and terrain with often abrasive and rocky conditions, caused us to track down the best quality ground engaging steel in the world. In our search for the best, one name kept on surfacing, as the recognized leader in the shaping and heat treatment of the highest grade of boron steel. Forges De Niaux, from France. The world’s first company to manufacture blades from boron steel, they recently became the only manufacturer to successfully produce blades to a hardness of 200kg/mm².

"We work a lot of steep virgin country that has never been cultivated. Plenty of rushes, timber etc. What we need is maximum penetration and bite, yet a weight we can still pull around the steep stuff with 200Hp. The lobe blades we run are perfect for this, they really bite in due to their shape, and track better when on steep sidelings. They take less power to pull, and seem to last for years."
