These high-spec, precision Italian manufactured, farming implements are relied on throughout New Zealand from vineyards to dairy farms to large-scale cropping units. From 3 metres up to 8 metres, with fixed and folding, to suit your needs and tractor size.

Used for primary and secondary cultivation, Express Plus Speed Discs are unequalled in performance after winter feed, for stubble incorporation, and to break-up paddocks after compaction.
The ExpressPlus 4500 Speed Disc and ExpressPro 4m Pre-Ripper combination is an amazing cultivation tool. Use after winter feed, for stubble incorporation, or to break-up paddocks after compaction.
The Tine Plow shatters subsoil pans while working the topsoil. It maintains soil structure and breaks the panning, but does not “boil” the soil or incorporate the layers, as a traditional ripper would.
These discs are fast and efficient, working at up to 16km/h. And they do the job better. Partnered with the Express Pre-Ripper they’re a formidable combination.
