The Farmax DRP Perfect is a medium-class spader, perfectly suited for horticulture, tree nurseries and agriculture on lighter soils.
This spader comes in various working widths and can easily be fitted with a hydraulically adjustable rotary harrow, rotary cultivator, ring roller, tube roller or packer roller. Regardless of the soil type, the DRP Perfect guarantees you the best bed for sowing or planting!
Spading and sowing in one pass
The DRP Perfect can be combined with a sowing machine so as to perform all the required operations in one step. The sowing machine is easily attached using a number of fixed mounting points, but you can also opt for a top-mounted lift to bring the sowing machine closer to the tractor. These combination possibilities help to save fuel.

Farmax Roller options
In addition to spading, the essence of correct soil cultivation is also in the choice for which type of finishing treatment is chosen after spading. In order to be able to offer a suitable finishing process for the Farmax users,we offer different types of driven and non-driven rollers to create the most suitable seed or planting bed. The type of soil on which you perform your work is important when choosing an appropriate roller. In addition, you should take into account the type of successive crop that you want to grow. Some plants prefer a slightly coarser or finer seedbed.
It is best to contact your Farmax representative for appropriate advice. Do you have specific technical questions regarding a roller or would you like to have another roller behind your spading machine? Farmax would be glad to think along with you and advise you about the possibilities.

Farmax Ringseeder & Farmax LRP Profi
‘We were looking for a sowing combination with a high success rate of grass seed, especially in drier periods such as spring, but also for a seeder that left a full-field sowing pattern, which had an even connection to the previous working pass and did not drag any crop residues within the seeder. With the Farmax Ringseeder and the power harrow & e-drill from Kverneland, we have found a combination that fits well together in the field.' Read customer portrait
