Farm Trader heads to Willesden Farms Ltd, 20 minutes east of Christchurch, to watch the FarmChief 4.5m Express Speed Disc in action

As the name suggests, the FarmChief 4.5m Express Speed Disc have a 4.5-metre working width with 36 560mm discs spread over two rows. With an overall weight of 4.5 tonnes (excluding the seed hopper), this gives a down pressure of 120kg per disc.

While the discs are rubber mounted to offer contour following, there’s no cut angle adjustment that could be beneficial for the variety of soil conditions on the farm.
