FARMET SOFTER NS Features
Fitted standard with either a Category 2 / 3 or straight Category 3 hitch
Frame is made from eXtra STEEL line steel which is three times stronger than standard steel & lighter too!
A completely forged arm allows for a more aggressive disc angle, more strength and less diameter than a standard style arm.
This means better trash flow, a better cut out of weeds and less downtime.
Simple to adjust depth settings on the hydraulic lift cylinders that makes operating easy. Quick to adjust, flip over style ram stops are going to be your new next best friend!
Disks with the diameter of 510 mm (optional 560mm) are located in two rows will undercut the soil. Working depth is 3.5 – 12 cm
Special Side Deflector Plates are fitted to help guide soil that is thrown by the outside disc to within the width of the machine. This helps give a consistent level finish
Clods are crumbled by the rear roller. Various roller types are available to ensure the best performance in different conditions and soil types.
Standard fitment is the Tube Style Crumble Roller.
Built Strong from the Best Materials to Last a Lifetime
Farmet’s special eXtra STEEL line steel is three (yes, 3) times the tensile strength of standard steel. This eXtra strength gives you a much longer life of the machine, less weight & lower fuel consumption.
Maintenance-Free Disc Hub Bearings
Maintenance-free disc hub bearings ensures Trouble-Free operation of the machine with no need of additional lubrication. This means you actually spend less time repairing or servicing your machine and more time being Productive.
