PS – half-carried foldable machine


I’ve done just over 1,000 acres with my Farmet Softer 6PS so far and I have found it an awesome bit of gear. I’ve done some virgin pasture ground that hadn’t been touched for 50 years and it penetrated fantastic but most of all, it always left a beautiful level finish which I was very impressed by

Choice of hitch types including 2PL hitch for Cat 3/4 or eyelet type for 50mm or 70mm pins


Frame is made from eXtra STEEL line steel which is three times stronger than standard steel & lighter too!


Optional Tracing (Depth Gauge) wheels with simple adjustment. These insure a smooth and consistent cut across the total width of the machine.


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.


Disks with the diameter of 560 mm (optional 510mm) 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.


Large flotation tyres for stable transport with mud guards and hydraulic lift cylinders


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!

Easy Operation


Continuous Connection of Passes in the Field

The extreme disc is separately height-adjustable which allows continuous connection of runs by reducing the amount of soil thrown by the outside disc (Often referred to as a furrow filler)


Adjustable Deflector to direct Processed Soil

The height and longitudinally adjustable side deflector for ideal direction of the processed soil ensuring the operator that soil isn’t thrown outside of the machine width so that it offers a more consistent level finish


Hydraulic adjustment of Working Depth

Easy adjustment of the working depth according to the overview table using the distance washers on the roller piston rods.

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.


Maintenance-Free Rubber Torsion Mounts of Disc Arm

Resistant and maintenance-free rubber torsion mounts that offer ground following adaptation to terrain whilst offering protection against overload or damage from hitting an object like a stump or large rock.

Due to minimum of adjusting and lubricating points the operation and subsequent maintenance are very easy steps that anybody can perform.


Common Options


Single Depth Gauge Wheels

The SOFTER PS can have additional Depth Gauge Wheels fitted to the front side of the wings that assist with ensuring a completely even depth of cut across the entire width of the machine


MicroDrill Air Seeder

The sophisticated design of the machine allows for an installation of the Micro Drill Seeding Unit for sowing catch crop or for planting grass directly.


50mm Tongue Style Hitch

Ideal for tractors without linkage, you are able to order your new Softer Speed Disc with a 50mm Tongue Style hitch instead of the 2PL hitch that comes standard.

We run an organic farm and this means we have to be smart with our weed management decisions. After a lot of research into Speed Discs, we picked the Farmet Softer 8PS from Serafin Machinery as it ticked all the boxes for us.

We have used it in lots of different conditions and it has performed exceptionally well. The thing I have been impressed with the most is it's ability to achieve a full cut out of the weeds. It buries them properly and leaves a nice level finish. It fits our operation perfectly.

Farmet Softer 4.5PS

Where we farm here in Western Victoria, we have some very undulating ground that we needed to freshen up. Some of it had old tree stumps and had sandy soils, making the job a real challenge.

My Farmet Softer 4.5PS handled everything I threw at it and more. I was really impressed with the way it handled the different conditions and its setup was a breeze. Serafin Machinery was great to deal with too.
