Versatility + Simplicity + Reliability = FARMET SOFTER
The Farmet SOFTER range is a true multi-purpose, high speed disc tillage implement that is the perfect fit for the Australian Farmer. Designed to be very low maintenance and requiring little adjustment, the SOFTER is the machine that gets the job done. It is able to penetrate hard soils, it can handle high levels of stubble, it leaves a beautiful seed-bed ready finish, and due to its high working speed, it is also extremely efficient.
The SOFTER range is very VERSATILE and can handle a wide variety of working conditions. It is very SIMPLE to setup and adjust so you can spend more time working and less time scratching you head whilst trying to work out how to adjust disc angles & roller positions. The SOFTER is built from extremely high quality “eXTRA STEEL Line” steel which has three times higher strength and high flexibility of construction compared to a standard steel components & it also uses zero maintenance Agri-Hubs and long life rubber disc arm mounts so you know it is RELIABLE.
FARMET – The New Force In Australian Tillage!
Discs with the diameter of 510 mm / 560 mm are located in two rows. For the case of contact with an obstacle, each disc is separately effectively protected by means of rubber mounting.
The discs are placed in maintenance-free bearings with excellent service life. Optimum geometry of discs ensures high-quality work with very good productivity and high percentage of incorporated plant residues. The discs retain ideal working angle even with partially worn geometry of discs with no need to adjust disc angles. The disc spacing of 24 cm ensures good free flow of plant residues.
High-strength refined materials used for crucial nodes to ensure long service life. Strongly dimensioned frame of high-strength steels.
Maintenance-Free Placement of Discs
Maintenance-free placement of the discs ensuring operation of the machine with no need of additional lubrication.
Maintenance-Free Rubber Mounting
Resistant and maintenance-free rubber mounting for adaptation to terrain with protection against overload.

1 Recommended towing vehicle, the actual pulling force may significantly change according to the processing depth, soil conditions, inclination of land, wear of working members and their adjustment.
2 Machine weight with double roller.
PS – half-carried foldable machine
Due to minimum of adjusting and lubricating points the operation and subsequent maintenance are very easy steps that anybody can perform.
- Minimum of adjustment points.
- Minimum of lubrication points.
- No angles adjustments or translation of discs are needed.
Continuous Connection of Runs
The extreme disc is separately height-adjustable which allows continuous connection of runs.
Direction of the Processed Soil
The height and longitudinally adjustable side deflector for ideal direction of the processed soil.
Adjustment of Working Depth
Easy adjustment of the working depth according to the overview table using the distance washers on the roller piston rods.
