New South Wales ag machinery group Geronimo Farm Equipment has taken on distribution of Finnish company Elho’s range of hay raking and rock picking equipment in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.

Geronimo’s new Cowra sales manager Chris Sweeney says he is seeing more farmers move into hay cutting – hence the decision to add Elho’s twin swather range, such as the Elho V-Twin 950 Super, the V-Twin 750, the V-Twin 600 and the Twin 4600, to its product range. 

Elho’s hayraking equipment can handle anything from very heavy silage to a lighter hay crop in a variety of conditions, Sweeney says – a good trait to have as more farmers move into hay cutting.

 "It is that extra width, the ability to adjust that width as you need it, the finger tine arrangement and the drive system on there that allows you to match your desired break speed to the desired raking speed that makes the difference."

While the Elho range is imported into Australia by Colac Ag, Geronimo will also distribute Elho’s Scorpio 550 Stone Picker in Qld, NSW and WA.

"It holds up to 4 cubic metres and picks up rocks over a 5m width, so that is a one pass rock picking operation that improves the quality of your soil and means you can get more country into production," he says.

Sweeney says demand for landrollers and rockpicking equipment has risen as farmers work to get ahead during the current drought conditions.

"A lot more people are getting organised to be able to do what is needed because if it does rain they don’t want to be behind the eight ball," he says.

Despite the new products, Geronimo is still committed to working with Canadian ag machinery companies Brandt, Twister and RiteWay – with the company’s early order program for the RiteWay land rollers currently underway. 

RiteWay’s patented forward unfolding system goes from transport to paddock-ready mode in minutes while moving forward, the only roller on the market to have this feature.

Available in models with three, five and seven sections, the land rollers range in size from 10m right through to 27m, while folding up to a transport width of only 4.3m.

To participate in the early order program, buyers only need to pay 10 per cent of the total purchase price on order – as well as 30 per cent of the shipment costs – with the balance to be paid when they arrive in Australia from Canada.
