On a mission to get soils back in good health, one West Sussex farm has chosen to bring drilling operations in-house.
Strong build, a high level of specification for the money and consistent seed placement put the Maschio Alitalia top of the list for Wiltshire arable and beef farmer Derek Robinson when it came to selecting a new power-harrow combination drill.
OPICO feels that a plough is the logical thing to bring in to complete the Maschio tillage range. As the cornerstone of the cultivation line-up, it compliments existing Maschio products, adding to its successful lines of power harrows, rotavators and drills.
OPICO are the sole UK importer for the range of machines from MASCHIO GASAPRDO.
The MASCHIO range includes power harrows, flail mowers, rotary cultivators, combination drills, tine drills and hedge cutters, with an extensive list of models to suit any farm requirements and tractor size.
The GASPARDO range currently consists of three main types of Precision Drilling units with a variety of frame types. These offer precision drilling for a wide range of crops.
Every model is built under extreme scrutiny ensuring excellent quality, reliability and very low maintenance.
The MASCHIO GASPARDO philosophy “EASY MAINTENANCE” can be clearly seen throughout every machine, each one is fully loaded with simple but great ideas enabling maintenance and setup modification to be carried out quickly at the most part without the need of any tools.
