Slovakia is going wider on the fields
One of the largest farming companies, ACHP Levice a.s. started operating with the latest version of the Swifter SM 16 000. ACHP is part of a bigger group called Agrofert. The company’s portfolio includes chemical and fertiliser plants and livestock production. The Bátovce farm is operating on about 2000 ha and the best choice for their modernisation was to go with Bednars’ wide operating machinery. This is the third Swifter SM 16 000 in Slovakia.
Strong power connection
Batovce farm is operating with one of the strongest tractors on the market the CASE IH 620. This tractor is strong enough to pull the SWIFTER SM 16 000, even in small hill conditions. The average speed of the tractor was 11-12 km/h and consumption 6-7 l/ha. These figures were on a 400 ha where the Swifter operates. The Swifter prepared the seedbed before seeding corn and sunflower.
The Swifter compactor with its equipment rollers and tines, allows farmers to pave the way for a single crossing. In our experience one passage is sufficient even for demanding crops such as vegetables, poppy seed and canola.
Swifter references from “next door”
ACHP Levice is operating in a large region of Levice, in the northern territory. Their parcels had been prepared by the owners of Toman farm. Their satisfaction with the Swifter SM 16 000 after two seasons is so high that their references helped Bednar to find another wide operating farm. Toman farm also owns and uses the Terraland TO 6000.
Most important parts to choose on the Swifter SM 16 000 are the working sections and rollers, all these accessories are recommended depending on the soil conditions.
