It’s safer and faster than others. And it’s definitely better than conventional stirrers. “We use it for mixing all ponds and also loading our transport tankers.”

Brendon Hargest farms 360ha on a family partnership sheep and beef property near Gore which varies from rolling to some steeper terrain. Brendon says the rocky terrain is very hard on gear but the discs have Brendon’s endorsement. “They’re really, really good. We’re pleased with how they’re going – they’re robust and simple to use. They were pretty competitively priced too. “They dig in well and leave a nice, level finish. We’re getting a good depth out of them.”

Scott Croft farms 250 ha of crops, 650 Perendale sheep, and Angus cattle in heavy country at Lakeside, Canterbury. His crops include wheat, barley and grass-seed, Watties peas, and radishes.
Scott says his previous plough was simply getting a bit old for the task of turning over more than 80ha a year.
A fan of ploughing; “It’s a good way of breaking up the ground here, especially where there’s a bit of compaction”, Scott says he got his 5 furrow Agrolux from FarmChief for a demo to see what it could do. “It ended up staying here.”.
Scott says he’s had no problems with the plough and it has proved its worth, burying stubble and crop residue and giving a clean finish.
