SERAFIN MACHINERY HAVE THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR YOU
Now is the time to begin preparing your property for the upcoming fire danger period. Before you know it the hot, dry, windy days will be upon us again and with that comes the associated fire dangers involved. Acting now to ensure you, your family, your stock and your property are protected going into this period is your best bet. Below are some links from the RFS website including a factsheet on grass fires as well as a handy Farm Fire Safety Planner.
Commonly used for many years for creating a fire break (or fuel break as it is also known) around the boundary of your property has been some form of cultivation tools such as a plough or scarifier. This helps create a barrier between your boundary fence line and the inside fuel load (whether it is a crop, grass or scrub) on your property by turning over the soil to create bare ground making it harder for the fire to pass over.
“We have found that it is common for a lot of farmers to either borrow their neighbour’s old plough to do their fire breaks or they try and pick up a second-hand plough at a clearing sale” said Rodney Dunn, Sales Manager for Serafin Machinery.
“This is fine as long as the job gets done but we feel that Serafin’s have a better solution. Our Serafin ECO and Baldan CRSG range of offset disc ploughs are both cost-effective (starting at only $9,950 + GST) as well as reliable and easy to use. They are perfect for creating the firebreak around your property and it doesn’t cost a fortune” continued Rodney.
“Why borrow or buy used when you can buy new for the same price, fully assembled and with 12 months warranty?”
