"Roterra – The club tines create a better seed bed"
Nick Lindsay farms 215 acres at Bank Farm, Whittlesey, Cambs , with his father Tom. 150 acres are set to Winter Wheat, 45 acres to Beet and the remaining 20 acres Potatoes.
Nick runs a Teagle Polymat pneumatic drill for the Winter Wheat, mounted on a 3m Teagle Roterra Power Harrow. ‘The 3m working width suits the farm as it very compact and is better suited for transport on narrow roads’ says Nick.
Reasons for choosing a Roterra:
Nick and his father Tom have owned 6 Roterras, the most recent purchased in 2013. Nick says ‘The reliability has always been very good, and I like the club tines rather than the blades as they break down the hard clods / lumps on our heavy land much better. Under these soil conditions the club tines do not need to be changed so frequently, but replacement is straightforward enough with a single bolt’.
‘We use the Roterras following a 4 furrow plough, it really does make a superb job .With the easy depth adjustment on the packer roller , various depth settings can be achieved , depending on varying soil conditions . The Roterras are so versatile , we use them for all the autumn drilling work and spring cultivations too!’ Tom adds ‘The additional steel at the end of the club tine means that they last longer’.
Nick purchased all the Roterra’s through their local dealer, L.R Boon & Sons Ltd ,Benwick, Cambs. ‘When the Roterra was first launched I think we were one of the first farmers in the area to take delivery of one’. So why did he choose a Roterra? Nick says ‘They last as long time as they are well built, so why change? With a history of good service, I know it will get the job done with ease’.
Nick has also been very pleased with the performance of the Polymat Polytronic II seed drill with the Winter wheat sown in 2013 looking well. The whole drill/Roterra combination is very compact and lightweight for its size. Altering the seed rate is very easy too, just a few turns of the handle does the job. The combination of simple setting and calibration, the straightforward land wheel drive and the low seed level sensor gives you piece of mind for the drilling operation’.
In addition :
Nick and Father Tom own a Teagle Centreliner Superbowl fertiliser spreader . The same machine is now in its 18th season and still going strong . With just minor maintenance over the years, the 2000 litre machine spreading at 16m is very well suited to our farm size. Fertiliser rate adjustment is very easy, just by moving a single pin on the metering scale .
Nick adds ‘When the time comes to change the Superbowl , I really like the look of the new Teagle SX C-Tech 6000 Centerliner Spreader‘.
