Farmgard adds new Celli products

Wider units and a new air seeder attachment are on the cards for the Celli range of equipment

Distributor Farmgard has widened its supply networks for Italy’s Celli range of cultivators, which offers new options to help farmers prepare their paddocks for sowing.

Manufactured in Italy, the Celli range comprises power harrows, rotary hoes, spading machines and rippers, and dates its origins back to the 1950s.

But it’s the company’s Australian and New Zealand-developed combovator bed-forming system that continues to attract widespread interest among horticulturalists on this side of the world.

The machine combines soil cultivation and raised bed formation in the one unit, combining either a power harrow or rotary tiller with a bed former or roller – depending on an individual’s needs.

The bed former and roller can also be lifted or removed to allow the unit to operate as a cultivator.

Farmgard director Scott Capper says combovators can also be developed with Celli’s new Evo Series of power harrows and rotary tillers, developed for larger properties, which can reach up to 7m wide.

"The Evo Series has only been released in the past 12 months – that’s more bespoke stuff, we don’t normally stock them in Australia... but we hopefully will install a few more in the next 12 months," he says.

Farmgard is also now stocking the new Celli model of rotary tiller custom-built for sugar cane and pineapple growers with modifications that it once had to add post-manufacture.

"There are quite a few users of them already, but they are a heavier-duty version to cope with the demands of sugar cane and pineapple crops – they are custom-built especially for Australia."

Aside from that, the biggest change is that Australia has more Celli products in stock – because the company has a new sales team with a wider reach, says Capper.

The company’s Australia-based sales and marketing manager Luke Rowney leads the team locally, with Farmgard having dealers in every Australian state and distribution hubs in Melbourne and Brisbane.

Rowney adds that Celli’s power harrows and rotary tillers, which range between 1–7m wide, will also be able to be retrofitted with an air seeder attachment from the start of the second quarter of 2022.

Designed as a pasture improvement machine and able to hold either 300L or 500L of seed, the air seeders will include a low hopper sensor as standard as well as four sowing shafts and an electric or hydraulic fan.
