Consolidation is one of the key ingredients to a successful germination. A firm, stable seedbed, and good seed-to-soil contact is critical to getting a good start for the crop. New Zealand’s changeable weather conditions also mean that in some areas moisture conservation is very important, this is where the heavy construction of the Titan® Cambridge rollers is an advantage.
For the broadacre farmer or contractor facing larger areas of work, the 8.3m Titan 8300 makes economic sense and features the same class-leading weight and strength as the 6300, with an additional two metres of rolling width.
The Simplex front-mounted press systems from specialist German manufacturer Guttler, have a unique ring shape and action, leaving a stable, weatherproof surface for drilling regardless of extreme wet or dry 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!"
