The 980 Magnum resulted from a direct request from contractors for an uncompromising, rugged set of offsets that will outlast all others in extreme conditions. Virgin tussock, dry rocky ground, ex-forestry ground the 980 thrives in these conditions. Aggressive penetration and full hydraulics leave a precise, level finish in all 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!"
