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.

Features

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.
