FAMILY owned company Amazone have released a plough that is turning heads in fields around Ireland since its release earlier this year.
Amazone are known for their spreaders and sprayers for which they are market leaders in Ireland. With the purchase of Vogel and Noot in 2016, they have added a plough to their successful tillage range.
Farmhand, the exclusive distributor for Amazone, say that the Cayros is a well spec’d plough that is working well in Irish conditions. Although there is a full range of mounted and semi-mounted ploughs available, Farmhand say that they are stocking the 4 and 5 furrow, mounted ploughs with an option of hydraulic vari-width and hydraulic non-stop stone protection.
“We have a number of units sold over the past six months and customers are really happy” said sales director of Farmhand and well-known ploughman David Borland. Customers are saying that the build quality is as good as anything else out there and that the work it is doing is first class according to David.
Michael Kelly from Crankenstown farm in Co. Meath is one of those happy customers. “The Cayros has worked really well for me in all types of conditions. The sod is very well turned over and packed which leaves the soil nice and tight and easy to work after” said Michael. He also mentioned that “the WXL430 bodies leave a wide furrow channel to match 600 or 650 wide tractor wheels without up-soiling the ploughing”.
