Konefarmi Oy has become Strom partner just a few months ago, however few Strom mulchers MO and MZ have already been delivered to maintain Finnish landscapes. The first MZ 6000 was delivered straight to Petteri Mäkelä’s farm near Hämeenlinna, Finland. Very late and wet spring delayed testing of the machine, however Petteri tried it himself and invited Konefarmi’s personnel to share his impressions. Two journalists from most popular Finnish farming papers and neighboring farmer joined as well.
Konefarmi is the third largest implements’ distributor in Finland achieving annual sale of more than € 25 million. Strom is joining the product portfolio along Pöttinger, McHale, Bergmann, Seko, Unia and others. Mr. Petteri Mäkelä, loyal customer of the company for many years, runs ecological beef cattle farm, one of the biggest in Finland, on 500 ha. He has put an eye on Strom product even before the companies got together, so no surprise that he became the first customer. The machine shall be used to cut remaining grass after grazing, mulch vegetation at set aside fields, fight spread of dandelions by cutting off their flowering heads.
