AITCHISON NEW Grassfarmer tine drills include 14" coulters, frame stagger for superior trash clearance and newly designed 25mm straight tines.
Aitchison have been making drills in New Zealand for 40 years.
The company's Australian Sales Manager, Brendan Prentice, says two disc drill models are now also available in the Grassfarmer range. Prentice says it was the first manufacturer that fitted an inverted t-boot to a tine and was instrumental in the development of this technology.
"We also have the farmer end of the market well covered with our Grassfarmer range of disc and tine drills," Prentice explains.
"With two frame sizes of 2.1 metres (seven feet) and 2.7 metres (nine feet) in either a tine or disc only configuration we are the accepted market leaders in this segment."
Prentice says the versatile drill can plant any seed, including small brassicas, with great accuracy. It also has a large hopper.
The seeding rates are governed by a variable gearbox with a range of settings that accommodates sowing rates from as low as 1kg and up to 350kg/ha. According to Prentice calibration is also easy.
Prices start at $14,950 plus GST for the GF2014 model Aitchison.
