SOFTER PRO: For the serious professional wanting more!
The new SOFTER PRO range is a true multi-purpose, high speed disc tillage implement that is the perfect fit for the Australian Farmer. Designed to work in with the modern CTF farm design & add optional additional processes to each pass, the SOFTER PRO is for the professional.
The SOFTER PRO is still very low maintenance and requires little adjustment, as well as being able to penetrate hard soils, handle high levels of stubble, and is able to leave a beautiful seeder ready finish. Because of its high working speed it is also extremely efficient.
FARMET – The New Force In Australian Tillage!
Standard Drawbar style will suit 70mm drawbar pins
Hydraulic Jack Stand fitted standard. This makes hooking up faster, easier and safer.
Optional Front Mounted Tool with hydraulic lift when not required
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 510 mm 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 Double Ring Roller.
Large flotation tyres for stable transport and has 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!
Frame is made from eXtra STEEL line steel which is three times stronger than standard steel & lighter too!
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.
HOOK Style Disc Arms
Softer Pro is fitted with Farmet’s new HOOK style disc arm that provides better soil & stubble throughput and self cleaning compared to standard types.
Narrow Transport Width
The Bi-Fold design of the SOFTER PRO keeps its folded width down to only 3m and folded height low as well making this very easy to transport from farm to farm.
Easy to Use Depth Indicator
Easy to Read from the cabin, the SOFTER PRO has its own Depth Indicator fitted so the operator is always aware of the working depth being achieved.

Simple Diagrams show the operator what settings need to be adjusted for different operations of the machine such as folding & levelling.
And due to minimum of adjusting and lubricating points the operation and subsequent maintenance are very easy steps that anybody can perform.
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.
FLEXI-CUT Front Mount Tool
The SOFTER PRO can have the FLEXI-CUT front mount tool fitted which allows for additional processing of stubble prior to the discs which provides an improved stubble break down and level finish.
FLEXI-BOARD Front Mount Tool
The SOFTER PRO can have the FLEXI-BOARD front mount tool fitted which allows for additional breaking up of clods prior to the discs which aid in providing a leveller finish.
Extended Tracing Wheels for Optional Tools
This option is used exclusively when either the FLEXI-CUT or FLEXI-BOARD option is fitted. This allows for the additional room required at the front of the machine whilst keeping the tracing wheels for giving the machine a more consistent depth cut.
