The Bednar importer 4AG in New Zealand gets ready for all conditions: Part 1.

The end of the New Zealand summer season brings crowds of farmers to an outdoor exhibition in Gore in New Zealand's South Island. BEDNAR participated at this event together with importer 4AG from the North Island. This event was situated 12 km out of Gore in the traditional green hilly place of Waimumu. The exhibition itself pointed to the latest rural technologies, ideas from local and worldwide inventors.

4AG successfully  introduced the new disc technology from BEDNAR at this exhibition, the ATLAS HO concept attracted a lot of farmers as the size of the discs (diameter 660mm) and robust body can obviously break through the soil easier. The conditions in New Zealand can be said to  have various  soil types from flat land to under mountain areas with rocks and clay.

The Second machine introduced by Bednar was the Mulcher MZ 6000. Most of the farmers found the most important point of the Mulcher  was the hot tip galvanized body. Also the possibility to upgrade or downgrade the configuration dependent on the farmers’ land.

“We like to cooperate with Bednar, this company is running with the latest technological implements  and farmers in New Zealand are always looking to improve their farm land. Our company 4AG is specialized in soil cultivation with a long family history. Together with the  Bednar portfolio  we are able to satisfy customer needs. Our next company goal is to expand more strongly here and to South Island.“
