    Features and Benefits

    When you want to cut through the work, express speed discs are unsurpassed as a speed disc cultivator. Available in widths from 3M to 6M, they are used after ploughing, or for stubble incorporation working at speeds of up to 16km/h. They save time and, importantly, do the job better.

    The unique “optimum angle” disc design gives greater precision and accuracy for cultivating, while other features including greater protection for bearings make sure everything works exactly as it should. No need to grease the tough SKF sealed bearings.

    Dairy farmer John Tanner talks about his experience with FarmChief

    John Tanner, a dairy farmer in Leeston recently purchased an ExpressPlus 3000 Speed Disc with Pre-Ripper setup. 

    Wanting a ripper which rips deeper in the soil than others, and a set of discs which were perfect for dealing with fields growing fodder beet, kale, oats and silage, John couldn’t look past this FarmChief solution. 

    “It’s been a fantastic purchase. The rippers do a great job and the speed discs leave a good finish on the fodder beet paddocks.” Watch what he has to say here.

    Ben’s View

    Ben Pankhurst is the cultivation and drilling specialist at family company Pankhurst Contracting in Greta Valley, North Canterbury. Pankhurst Contracting cultivates around 1,000 ha’s a year, on sheep and beef properties between Amberley and the Hurunui River. In his 13-odd years in the business, Ben says he’s seen a steady move towards farmers contracting-out not only hay and baleage-making but also working paddocks and general farm work. He says while increased intensification and a reduced labour force are factors, clients also appreciate the advantages of using an expert who has invested in good gear.

    Before buying his 4500 Express Plus Speed Discs, Ben says he did his research and looked at a few brands. “Todd and FarmChief were keen to bring it up here and demo it, and we found it was a really good piece of kit.” Four years on, Ben says it’s done a lot of work in some reasonably harsh conditions, including winter greenfeed paddocks that’ve been beaten up by cattle. “We prepare paddocks for all kinds of crops – fodder beets, oats, brassicas…”

    “They work very well across all soil types and even in steep and rocky terrain. They’re very versatile and they’ve changed the way we work the ground. They’re more efficient than the heavy discs and they’re cheaper for the farmers. There’re fewer hours in the paddocks and, from our point of view, we get more ground covered, there’s less maintenance and they’re cheaper to run.” Ben says they’re also very easy to operate. “Anyone can drive them.”

    Campbell’s view

    Campbell McArthur farms 263 hectares of flat land at Pendarves, Canterbury, in crops including; wheat, barley, oats, processed peas, seed peas, red beets, ryegrass, broad beans, and linseed. Between crops, he grazes lambs. Campbell’s goal was to find a way to effectively integrate crop residue into the ground, ready for the next season’s crops. There were a couple of important considerations behind his thinking: Increasing concerns around burning-off (including bans after the 2017 Canterbury Port Hills fires), and the stringent demands of his local irrigation scheme’s environmental plan, which doesn’t favour ploughing. The Express Plus 6000 Speed Disc had already been on Campbell’s radar and was a pragmatic choice. He says he particularly appreciates the implement’s robustness and precision engineering. “It’s very well made”. He can’t fault its performance. “It does a really beautiful job.”
