Features and Benefits

A new, efficient, cutting-edge approach to Strip-Tilling. Introducing the FarmChief Strip Hawk Easy. 

The FarmChief Strip hawk Easy mechanical strip-till takes ploughing, weeding, fertilising and harrowing to the next level. Not only that, but it is more efficient, reduces costs and protects your soil. 

The harsh New Zealand winters make strip-tillage the perfect solution for protecting the soil when grazing stock on fodder crops through the winter. Reducing the work needed on these paddocks means maintaining the soil structure for spring cultivation. 

  • x3 front cutting discs per row ensures the crop residue is cut with precision.
  • x2 residue manager discs for removing residue.
  • x2 limitation discs work in sync to establish the row width. Easily adjustable length, width and cutting angle. 
  • Multiple rear roller options eliminate clods and level the finish.
  • The ripper leg with auto-rest opens the soil, up to 30cm deep. 
  • Add on a FarmChief front fert tank to apply fertiliser behind the ripper leg for greater working efficiency.

Testimonials

Graeme’s view

Graeme Burnett has a 300ha milking platform and 250ha run-off on flat to rolling country at Dacre on the Southland Plains. It’s fully self-contained, doing all its own cropping.
He’s been impressed by FarmChief’s sales follow-up, in particular Ben who he says is a salesman who can also actually also do the job.
“We bought a roller that needed a tweak so the paddles worked better on the flat. They came out, looked at it and organised new parts. It was extremely good.”
Graeme says it’s a welcome change from a lot of the gear they have bought elsewhere, which has left them with a bit of welding to do. “FarmChief do far more than other outfits.”
