heavy-duty mulching

Distributed by Silvan Australia, Nobili’s new BK heavy-duty mulcher range is designed to operate behind tractors of 52 to 130kW (75 to 175 horsepower). “The Nobili BK range, now available from Silvan Australia nationally, is the ideal choice for larger scale or intensive farm properties, roadside maintenance or local government contractors, or any application where vegetative waste can or needs to be reduced to a fine evenly distributed tilth for breakdown or to add to future productivity,” Silvan Australia’s machinery specialist Gavin Wheatcroft says. With an international market and reputation for quality and innovation, Nobili regularly releases new mulchers that meet specific market needs. Available in three models with working widths of 2.3, 2.7 or 3.2 metres, the BK range is “ideal for grass, stubble or pasture topping, breaking down vegetable crop residues,…

costs down with vertical design

The designers behind the Integrated Harrington Seed Destructor (iHSD) say a new vertical, mechanical-drive version of the attachment will help meet changing customer demand. Invented by WA grower Ray Harrington and developed by UniSA with investment from the Grains Research & Development Corporation, the iHSD has undergone continuing development by SKF Engineering and DeBruin Engineering, together with national distributor, McIntosh Distribution. Dealer principal at McIntosh & Son WA’s southern branches Devon Gilmour says the team behind the iHSD had been inspired to develop a simple alternative to the current hydraulic-drive system, based on its high performing cage mills. “We wanted to maintain the mill system from the hydraulic version. With the capacity of the mills and the seed kill rate, we knew we had the right mill set to do the job,” he…

new cf moto models

CFMoto Australia has added two new vehicles to its Australian range for 2019: the utility task vehicle (UTV) U1000 and the X600 EPS all-terrain vehicle (ATV). The company’s Australian director Michael Poynton says the U1000’s 1,000cc, 75 horsepower (56kW) V-Twin engine makes it the company’s highest spec’d UTV, giving it enough power to pull 800kg comfortably. “Not only will this model complement the CFMoto UTV range, it has completely revolutionised it, taking it to the next level,” says Poynton. With a large gas-assisted tip tray and a 350kg load capacity, the U1000 is work ready, featuring a spacious bench seat with plenty room for passengers and an additional 75.5 litres of storage. Its rear limited slip differential (LSD) gives the U1000 an 8.2m turning radius, the smallest in CFMoto’s UTV range, while the model…

clear vision

Long gone are the days of poor visibility from cabs in a telescopic handler as JCB brings a new range of agricultural Loadalls to the global market. In fact, the British manufacturer says its new Series III range has an all singing, all dancing Command Plus cab, that is 50 per cent quieter for operators than in previous models. The Australian arm of JCB told Farms & Farm Machinery it was unable to confirm which models of the new range it would be taking at this stage, but that more would be revealed later in 2019. The new Series III JCB Loadall range comprises four models, namely the 6m lift 538-60, 7m 532-70 and 542-70, and the 9.5m high-lift 536-95, which have up to 200kg increased load capacity over their predecessors. The already established…

reign of grain

Partnering with Chesterfield Australia, GrainKing’s award winning Nyrex chaser bins, Maximus field bins and Seed and Super bins will become available at 14 branches across South East Queensland, Northern and Central New South Wales. GrainKing CEO Colin Jorgensen believes an increased level of interest across Australia for its Nyrex bin is due to its runner up award at last year’s Swedish Steel Prize. The company says the bins are stronger and lighter than those currently being used by farmers, making them more efficient and longer lasting. GrainKing has now established a full time business development and technical support service manager based in NSW to support the expansion. Chesterfield Australia group sales manager Brad Davis says the partnership with GrainKing is a perfect fit for two family businesses. “We’re convinced the Nyrex Chaser Bins will add…

water data on tap

Properties across the country may have a new water saving friend, the Davey TankSense. The TankSense allows the many families who rely on tank water to monitor and track water levels to ensure supply is always available. TankSense uses real time usage data and current tank level stats to predict how many days of water are left. Through a smartphone app, the TankSense provides alerts when water starts to run low. Another unique feature is it also integrates weather data from the Bureau of Meteorology so tank owners can hold off on ordering water if rain is forecast. Davey’s Innovation mission leader Chris Knapp says the system was designed in direct response to feedback from tank users, who identified water supply as one of their biggest challenges. “Even when tanks include a visual gauge…
