Kub­ota has brought out a swag of im­ple­ments for 2018

Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

Kub­ota Aus­tralia has re­leased its 2018 pre-sea­son im­ple­ments range in prepa­ra­tion for the year ahead.

The range in­cludes the new­est Kub­ota im­ple­ments, Great Plains ma­chin­ery and Krone silage and hay equip­ment.

Kub­ota Aus­tralia se­nior prod­uct man­ager Lars Pasedag says Krone is driv­ing in­no­va­tion and adopt­ing ag-tech pro­cesses to boost Aus­tralian farm­ers’ on-site ef­fi­ciency.

“The Krone HDP II square baler sets a new bench­mark in large square bale pro­duc­tion, as it fea­tures the world-first de­vel­op­ment of an eight-knot­ter sys­tem, which en­ables the ma­chine to han­dle ex­tremely heavy bales.” Pasedag says.

“The Krone Com­prima round baler range also fea­tures in­no­va­tive up­dates, with a new W-pat­tern tine ar­range­ment re­plac­ing the usual straight line for con­stant flow of crop.

“And there’s also the Com­prima Xtreme, fea­tur­ing the same strong fea­tures as the Com­prima but of­fer­ing faster el­e­va­tor and pick-up speed for higher pro­duc­tiv­ity,” he adds.

Other new prod­ucts to fea­ture in the pre-sea­son im­ple­ments range in­clude new Kub­ota CD com­pact discs and the SC seed­ing com­bi­na­tion se­ries, which Kub­ota says has re­ceived a few up­grades.

The new SC seed­ing com­bi­na­tion se­ries fea­tures the ISOBUS iM Tel­lus and Tel­lusGO uni­ver­sal ter­mi­nals de­signed for ease of op­er­a­tion, mon­i­tor­ing and con­trol.

The CD range now of­fers new wider work­ing widths. It of­fers main­te­nance-free bear­ings, ro­bust disc arms and high-ca­pac­ity bear­ings for im­proved dura­bil­ity. An Ac­ti­pack roller han­dles clod crush­ing and very firm soil re-com­paction.

New Great Plains Man­u­fac­tur­ing im­ple­ments are also an ad­di­tion to the range. Great Plains, which spe­cialises in grain drills and ver­ti­cal tillage equip­ment, was ac­quired by Kub­ota late last year.

The fea­tured Great Plains Turbo-Max seeder boasts yield­boost­ing seedbed prepa­ra­tion be­cause it con­serves soil mois­ture. Rear gangs off­set the front gangs, split­ting the blade spac­ing to 9.5cm for what Kub­ota de­scribes as “su­pe­rior residue siz­ing in one pass”.

Kub­ota Aus­tralia’s pre-sea­son of­fer in­cludes a fi­nance of­fer of 0.9 per cent across all im­ple­ments, and ev­ery round baler pur­chased comes with six net roles.
