Read about the “24 HOURS RECORD” event organized by BEDNAR in cooperation with the Romanian BEDNAR representative, IPSO Agricultură, in the fields managed by the OLT PIESS SLATINA farming business.
Three o’clock is approaching. The official start of the 24 HOURS RECORD event, during which we are planning to show the maximum output of the SWIFTERDISC XE 18400 MEGA disc cultivator. The set and the drivers are ready. We are standing at the start. Three, two, one … go!
The digital clock is showing 11:11. The tractor monitor, projected in the tent using a remote connection, shows that the worked hectares exceed the limit of 644. We know we have managed to break the 2007 record in the number of hectares worked. We do not stop, the machine set continues to work.
We are building the gate and stretching the finish ribbon along the line of the machine work that the set should go through at 15:00. We are counting down the last minute. The last seconds. The set is approaching, shrouding us in a cloud of dust but we begin to rejoice with a feeling of happiness. The tractor counter stopped at 769.36 hectares. We have a disc cultivator that has worked the highest number of hectares in the world. We have succeeded!
“I am immensely pleased and proud of what we managed to accomplish with our machine during the 24-hour operation. It does not only confirm the machine quality that resisted such a high load, but above all, the high productivity and effectiveness it enables you to achieve with the machine,” says Ing. David Ryčl, the Marketing Director of BEDNAR FMT.
The verified X-PRECISE system (disc sections arranged in the shape of X) is a great advantage of the SWIFTERDISC XE_MEGA disc cultivator. Despite the maximum working width of 18.4 metres, the machine is very compact and meets the EU road traffic requirements. The machine does not exceed the transport width of 3 metres and the maximum transport height of 4 metres (when the single-row packer is used).
