Tractor implements... Advice please.

Hi all,

 

I have 15 acres of flat land in the Latrobe Valley. When we purchased the farm we got a 25hp Kubota (2201) 4wd tractor, a single tine ripper and a slasher.

 

The block had been let go by the previous owners and the owners before that and we've replaced a fair bit of the fencing. Now we're at the point where we need to start working the soil, improving it and sowing pasture crops.

 

I'm tring to decide which implements that I can put on the back of the tractor for this purpose? I'm tossing up between a disc plough or a rotary hoe but there may be other implements that are better suited?

 

If I want to work the soil, from scratch, and prepare it for planting pasture crops what implements do I need? Which implements would be nice to have? And which should I steer clear of?

 

Cheers, Mal.

Hi Mal this is what you need it is like adding a bag of super to the acre for free.


AUSTRALIA'S #1 SMALL ACREAGE AERATOR!
The vision for Aervator is to be a high utility farm implement that relieves compaction, aerates, cultivates and renovates.  It can function as a rotary hoe, a disc, a roller and a harrow and increases the effectiveness of water and fertilizer.  Aervator has a low maintenance cost and saves you both fuel and time.

Regards Graeme

Hi Mal

4 years after your post, I hope you have done well with your pastures.
Can I ask you how the Kubota 2201 has performed for you?
I am looking at a 2202 with loader and backhoe.

Do you still have the tractor, are they as good as the dealer is telling me?
I am on hilly ground, any concerns with this ?

Thanks in advance
Tom
