Power Harrows

We don’t need to tell you how important an even, smooth fine seed bed is for optimal germination and establishment of crops. What we can tell you about is one of the tools to best achieve it: a FarmChief FALC Power Harrow.

Features and Benefits

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. Just one of the FALC Harrows’ many strengths is having four rotors per metre. That’s 12 for the 3 metre harrows, compared to other brands’ just 10. And thanks to improved overlap it allows a finer tilth for the same forward speed. You’ve also got the choice of cage, packer, spiral and spiked rollers, to suit your soil type. And to save you time and hassle, not to mention protecting the build quality on the harrows, they all have tapered roller rotor bearings for long life – always submerged in a semi-fluid bed. Phased rotors are a huge deal, especially in the North Island, giving a smoother operation for cultivating in tough country as the implement doesn’t bounce around as much so the ground is worked consistently.

Testimonials

Grant’s view

Grant and Nikki Kearins have a 230 ha dairy farm at Kairanga, on the outskirts of Palmerston North on flat, heavy to medium country.

Grant said he’d been looking around for some power harrows and thought FALC had a lot of good features. That initial impression has been confirmed by their performance. “It goes really well. The big diameter packer roller just keeps working through.”The 5 metre power harrows are currently used across around 50 hectares of the farm. “I had the horse power, so I decided to go for it. It certainly covers the ground.” “It seems well built and reliable.  All around, a nice, reliable machine.”
