A successful demonstration

The first machine to open the demonstration at the field day was the SWIFTER SO 5000 F, which was pulled by a John Deere 6210 R. This combination was received very well by those in attendance. Probably the SWIFTER’s greatest advantage is its set up, which is very fast and easy to do. The vast majority of the visitors and even the tractor driver agreed that the machine had done a nice job on the surface compared to our competitors. One SWIFTER SO 5000 F has already been sold to the Dierings family who are farming in Holland.

The second machine to make an appearance was the SWIFTERDISC XO 5000 F with ALFA drill pulled by the New Holland T 7.270 series. The demo field had been used to grow sugar beet which was harvested prior to the demo. The conditions out on the field were challenging for any machine –due to the heavy and sticky soil. It was essential to set the right position between the discs and the rollers, once this was done the XO 5000 F was back to its winning ways; even the smaller competitor’s disc needed more horse power to pull it in the same conditions.
   
 The team of the SO F and JD is turning out to be a great solution for quality seedbed preparation. Less horsepower for a larger working width, that’s what farmers like.
 

Our cooperation is to continue with Gruva Technik B.V.


After the success at the Agricultural and Horticultural Days of Mechanization, STROM BEDNAR will be their presenting machines at the most famous agricultural exhibition in the Benelux called Agribex, together with Gruva Technik. Visit us in Hall 3. The following machines will be on display SWIFTER SN 4000, SWIFTERDISC XO 5000 F and FENIX FN 3000.
 
 
 Despite the poor weather over 80000 visitors attended the event over the two days.
