The Farmax ERP is a spader for light tractors. The great manoeuvrability and low integral weight of the ERP make it highly suitable for use in greenhouse horticulture, flower cultivation and tilling small plots.

Apart from giving perfect rotavation, the popularity of the Farmax ERP is mainly attributable to its ease of operation and sturdy design.

Uninterrupted spading

The ERP is fitted as standard with scrapers to prevent the tilled soil from clogging the machine. The machine can be combined with a crumbler roller.

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.

Customer experiences with our machinery
Klaasse Bos, Lijnden (The Netherlands)
Farmax Rapide

“We are very satisfied with the current Farmax machines and would recommend them to other arable farmers and contractors. That’s because the machines produce a good result and are technically first-rate. What’s more, we find the machine reliable and lowmaintenance compared to other spaders in our area”, says Chris.

Schepergerdes, Meppen (Germany)
Farmax Rapide

“With this spader, you can do good spading on any type of soil. And as I said, you can produce a good sowing bed in one operation. Furthermore, spading limits soil erosion. The surface layer is much less vulnerable to dust blow-off after spading.” Read the customerportrait

Heiler Agrarservice, Waghäusel (Germany)
4x Farmax deep spaders

“I can thoroughly recommend these machines to my fellow contractors. For the farmer, they mean a good soil structure and an ideal sowing bed preparation. For the contractor, the easy maintenance and reliability are important.” Read the customer portrait

Contractor Jimmink-Kolhorn (The Netherlands)
Farmax Rapide

Jimmink: "I am personally very impressed by the machine’s quality too. They are now the kind of machine that you can give a quick check before the spading season and then get straight on with the work. They hardly require any maintenance these days." Read the customer portrait  

Geert Luttermann (Lower-Saxony)
Farmax Econ

‘The reason we chose for Farmax is that the soil for the seed bed can be prepared in a single operation. Thanks to the spading machine, we no longer have issues with unevenness in the soil, which we did have when we used ploughs’, Luttermann states. Read the customer portrait

Mts. Polling (Bronneger, The Netherlands)
2x Farmax LRP Profi

‘We started with a Rapide, but after further development of the LRP Profi, this machine fit our company better. Ever since, we have happily used Farmax LRP Profi spading machines.' Polling is happy with the performance of the Farmax spading machines at the farm over the years. Over the past years, they have never had ‘any nonsense’ with the Farmax, the farmer states.

Martin Merker (North Rhine-Westfalia, Germany)
Farmax Rapide

‘Because Farmax contributed their expertise to the demands I had, we eventually reached a spading machine that fully met my expectations’ Merker says. Merker; ‘So far, I have happily worked with my Farmax spading machine. In wetter circumstances, the soil is easier to prepare using a spading machine compared to a plough.' Read the customer portrait

Horizon Flowers (Zwaagdijk, The Netherlands)
3x Farmax LRP Profi

Pieter: ‘We spade and mill in a single operation, which allows us to save time and materials. We chose for Farmax because the machine is lighter, it results in a better quality of seed bed and the milling cutter works independently from the spading machine. Read the customer portrait

Roger en Sue Groocock (Bordertown, Australia)
Groocock Soil Improvement

We are great fans of Farmax and its machines. That’s partly because the company listens to its customers wishes and adapts the machine to Australian farming conditions. We are looking forward to new and exciting developments in the future. READ THE CUSTOMER PORTRAIT

Contractor De Weer (The Netherlands)
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
