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.

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

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
