Vogel and Noot

Vogel and Noot’s TerraDrill incorporates a high-speed disc-cultivator, ring press and disc-coulter drill.

The unit is designed to be operated at speeds in excess of 8kph (5mph) and exerts a 9t load on the tractor linkage.

For these reasons at least 150hp is needed up front.

The 3m rig costs £18,000 and can be split so that the cultivator can be used on its own. Vogel Noot Terra

Gregoire Besson

Gregoire Besson used Cereals as a launchpad for a new range of 5-7 furrow mounted variable furrow-width ploughs – the RW 9 series.

These have a hydraulic suspension system built into the headstock to soothe headland turns and transport.

Many of the plough’s functions – including furrow-width adjustment and inclination are hydraulically adjustable.Gregoire Besson

A bogey-type twin depth wheel setup is said to significantly improve contour following and transport stability.

Price for a 7-furrow version is 26,000.

Kverneland Variomat

A new range of seven to 12-furrow ploughs is now available from Kverneland.

Taking on a semi-mounted, articulated format, the 10-body Variomat uses a standard four-furrow reversible mounted on a linkage at the rear of a bigger six-furrow. Kverneland Variomat
