Atlas

The Atlas is a high-speed disc cultivator designed for deeper cultivation of large amounts of crop residue and where a faster alternative to the plough is required.

The robust frame and large 620mm discs mounted at aggressive ploughing angle enable the Atlas to cultivate heavy soils with huge quantities of organic matter.

*Depends on soil conditions

"We milk 2600 cows in both North and South Islands, plus grow maize and various crops on 600 hectares of lease ground. We are constantly developing new ground to bring into production and the 4AG 970's are excellent for chopping up old, heavily thatched pasture and contouring rougher areas. Daily throughput is important to our size operation. so we're pretty happy to be averaging 3-4 hectares/hour!"
