Boss Agriculture Strip Till Machine
13/09/2012 New Strip Till by Boss Agriculture

Boss Agriculture's new Strip Tillage machine has been released with the first 12 metre machine just finishing approx 2000ha in the North Star area.

With a strong up take of strip tillage practises in the US, more & more Australian farmers are also seeing better results from utilising this equipment in the preparation of dryland summer cropping areas.

Benefits of the new Boss Strip Till include:

  • Creates the perfect summer crop seedbed.
  • Promotes an ideal soil environment to enhance seed germination.
  • Strip-tillage warms soils in the seed zone quickly and promotes the fast germination and growth of seedlings, reducing disease risk.
  • Fertiliser can be applied up front when strip tilling.
  • Strip tilling before planting improves the planting operation by reducing straw pinning, reduces seed zone compaction and planter down-pressure requirements.
  • Prolong the life and reduce the maintenance requirements of precision planting equipment.
  • Improves water infiltration & increases oxygen put into the soil through tillage to accelerate the decomposition of organic matter.
  • Leaves a planting bed that is slightly raised to reduce water-logging.

Call us to discuss your Strip Till requirements – complete machines & individual units available.

05/07/2012 Dryland Cotton Ripper

Boss Agriculture's new range of cotton centre busters are available with either a 5 tonne breakout or 9 tonne breakout shank assembly. The first 3 machines are being put to work ripping out the remains of this year's dryland cotton crops in the Moree, Mungindi & North Star areas.

Using a 3 tyne system (per cotton row), fitted with mulch blades and a custom manufactured delta wing the results have been excellent. The heavy duty bolted 2 or 3 bar linkage models come standard with Cat 3/4 linkage and our heavy duty depth gauge wheels fitted with 11R x 22.5 tyres. Both the 5 tonne & 9 tonne shank assemblies are heavy duty fitted with a ripper point, replaceable shin guard and straight line shear bolt.

29/06/2012 New Robot Welder & CNC Lathe for Boss Agriculture

Boss Agriculture have just installed a new large capacity Mori Seiki CNC Lathe with live tooling and a new Lincoln Robotic Welding Station (increasing our robot welding capacity by 25%).

In this day and age with many manufacturers switching to imported cast components to cut costs, Boss Agriculture is a strong believer in manufacturing integral parts in our factory to maintain accuracy & quality. This results in components that are less prone to fatigue or failure and easier to repair or weld on farm if required.

These 2 new machinery editions to our factory will allow us to maintain this belief whilst delivering a better quality product, staying competitive & remaining proudly Australian manufactured.

08/05/2012 Exceptional Results with Boss Double Disc Shanks.

With many farmers adapting Boss Double Disc Shanks to their existing tyne planters this year, results have been fantastic with great feedback.

Common results farmers have told us include: Increased fertilising and planting speed, upto half the amount of fuel used (compared to using a tyne), minimal trash blockages and minimal moisture loss due to low ground disturbance.

Boss Double Disc Shanks can be adapted to most tyne planters, offering proven in-field performance and are quick to change between the tyne and disc.

Boss Double Disc Shanks have been adapted to: Janke, Gessner, Gason, Excel, John Shearer, Flexicoil & Gyral Planters.

With farmers regularly telling us that they are using half the amount of fuel when running the disc shank, these units can pay for themselves in one season without taking into account moisture and time savings.

We also have to thank Mal for his efforts in putting Mick Grills in a bottomless mud hole during an early morning pig chasing expedition. Judging their expressions after they hit the mud hole while doing about 40km/h on a quad I think the mud helped to hide their shock!
