28 Series

Originally developed at the start of the 1980's, in the tough rice growing conditions of the Southern Riverina in Australia. These machines are strong enough to handle badly bogged up rice fields but also capable of a seedbed finish which is so important in Laser levelled irrigation layouts. These machines are also used extensively in Broadacre cereal farming for stubble incorporation and weed control, and have been produced in machines up to 65.24' (17.73m) in width.

The frame design, gang positioning and gang angle are optimised for the best performance and lowest operating costs in all of the following operations:

  1. Trash control
  2. Stubble incorporation
  3. Paddock redevelopment
  4. Seedbed preparation
  5. Level finish

The gang angle and overall design of the machine has been optimised to require the minimum amount of horsepower to perform the job at hand, whilst also self sharpening the discs and achieving the required depth and tilth of the soil.

Features of these machines include:

  1. 150x100x9mm RHS frame
  2. 1 ½" Square Stationary Gang axle
  3. 28” Discs, 8mm front & 6mm rear
  4. Discs are manufactured from Boron Steel and hardened to 48-52 HRC for maximum wear and toughness
  5. Bearing Housings machined to close tolerances on CNC machinery from billet steel
  6. Bearings can be sealed or re-greasable, these are protected against foreign objects and feature additional seals
  7. Available in standard sizes from 11.58' to 49.71' (3.53m to 15.15m)
  8. Average weight 975kg/ metre of cut (655 Lbs/foot of cut), 108kg(238lbs) / disc
