Estonian national ploughing match was arranged in Olustvere, small town with agricultural school, on September 28-29, 2012.  Contrary to what competition name suggests not only ploughs, but almost every tillage machine offered in Estonia appeared in Olustvere's fields.  Strom Bednar was presented by Terraland, Ecoland, SwifterDisc and Atlas.

 

Good preparation is essential for successful demonstration

Sales Team Stokker decided not to joke in front of the best ploughmen.  The hole fleet of four Strom Bednar machines was delivered one day before competition to the field nearby.  Sales reps were adjusting machines, driving them at different speeds and depths, discussing experience and sharing insights.  It paid off next two days - all the machines performed beautifully next days and received many compliments from ploughmen and farmers.
 
   
 

Days of compatition.  Congratulations to old new champion!

The competition has spread over two days.  Truly speaking, there was no too much intrigue who will take the title of absolute champion.  Acting champion Mr. Jüri Lai was laying furrows here just couple of weeks after Wourld ploughing contest in Croatia where he ended 13th among 33 participants.  Forecasts came true - nobody challenged him at national level.  For Stokker team it was special event as Jüri is team mate, "golden" demonstrator highly regarded by the team and customers throughout Estonia.  He has also collected lot of experience with Strom equipment as well.
 
 

Champion's opinion

According to Mr. Jüri Lai, he  liked almost all machines he happened to demonstrate - SwifterDisc, Terraland and Ecoland.  He says, they are simple to adjust and operate, strongly built and should last long, finally make perfect job in the field that is most important.  Atlas does the job as well as others, but one has to be more careful with adjustment, depth / speed selection, tractor parameters.  All by all Strom deserved respect from champion!
