Major Farm machine distributor, Farmhand, have recently announced the arrival of the new Amazone Catros 3003 compact disc harrow for sale in Irish markets.
The machine is now available through the company’s main dealer networks, with a guideline price of €2,500 below the existing Catros 3001, for the new 3-metre wide 3003.
The 3003 is designed for shallow and the intensive mixing of tillage soils. It is fitted with the 460mm plain discs, which have proven to be most successful at depths between 2 and 5 inches. This latest addition is easier to set than the previous model. It was found, during extensive field trials, to deliver an even more perfect result across a variety of uses from stubble cultivation to grass-reseeding work.
It also is able to perform at high forward speeds, with impressive work rates. Other features of the ‘easy pulling’ unit include superior build quality, long-lasting durability, lifetime maintenance-free bearings, rubber overload protection and full road lights.
Val McAuley, Farmhand sales support manager, said the 3003 is expected to ‘appeal to value-driven farmers and contractors and is eligible for the latest EU TAMS II support’.
The new harrow is backed by an Amazone Finance package, with an open crumbler roller and is available at an initial ‘hitch up and go’ VAT inclusive payment of just under EUR 1,400. This is followed by an additional nine half yearly payments of the same amount.
