Compared to a conventional disc, distributor Burder Ag says the compact frame of the Fieldbird model allows it to cover a wide range of field conditions and terrain, yet maintain the consistent depth needed for proper seedbed preparation.

"Farming conditions aren’t known for being static, so having the right tillage equipment that will deliver results across a range of conditions is essential," Burder CEO Adam Fendyk says.

The weight of the disc tiller is easily shifted backwards and forwards to allow for and adjust to undulating fields as well as different soil types.

"This means that operators can use this machine in conditions where another type of tiller would fall short," Fendyk says.

The Fieldbird series was designed as two machines into one, meaning just one single pass will complete most tillage tasks.

Burder says farmers are also seeing improvements in fuel usage.

"A lot of farmers are using power harrows to level out their paddocks, but it is a very slow process and burns quite a lot of fuel.

"Being a two-in-one machine, we are hearing reports of farmers saving three times as much fuel compared to other machines that do a similar job," Fendyk says.

The aggressive disc angle and positioning ensures a "perfect" mix of the harvest residues.

In combination with the 560mm scalloped discs mounted on twin arms with rubber suspension blocks, the Rabe compact disc tiller can achieve a higher breakout force, meaning it can work harder in challenging soil conditions.

Not only do the Fieldbird models have a large footprint, with working widths varying from three to 12 metres, each machine is able to be folded up to three metres and under the legal width to transport agricultural machinery by road.

The Rabe Fieldbird series are available through all of Burders dealers and are currently in stock and ready for the 2019 tillage season.
