Smudge, Longford, Tasmania 1999.

This is a common implement in my part of Tasmania & is used after ploughing, to level out the furrows (similar role to a Dutch harrow but without the spikes / tynes).

This shot is showing the end on view (towed end on for transport).

Front on (working angle) view of the smudge.

A very handy implement found on most Northern Midlands farms. Alot are actually home made, using railway iron.

Shearer LINKAGE TRASHWORKER linkage mounted chisel plough / ripper, Perth, Tasmania 1999.

This machine is owned by a local farmer / contractor & was used almost exclusively on cultivating potato land, pre planting. The bank of s-tynes & crumbler at the rear finished the seedbed off beautifully, after the 2 rows of deep working hydraulic tynes.

Home made deep ripper, Perth, Tasmania 1999.

The ripper belongs to a local farmer / contractor & was built & painted in his workshop. The tynes are from AGROWPLOW but everything else was made in the farm workshop (the rams were also outsourced).

It is hitched to a John Deere 8440. The Shearer Trashworker from the previous shots is just in front of the 8440.

Re: Culivation Implements in Tasmania
They are sort of like a fibreglass material Christoph & it depends on what type of soil you are ploughing on. They do work out cheaper too I believe, than metal boards.

They are also meant to have some non stick properties too but I havent had enough to do with them, in that respect, to comment :-)

Re: Culivation Implements in Tasmania
Around 15 yers ago, we had these square ploughs over here. This was a conventional plough that pivoted the bodies round with hydraulics to allow ploughing in both directions. These ploughs also had plastic mould-boards.

These plough didn't catch on, they wouldn't work when it was wet. The plastic wasn't the problem.

Yes, I have seen pictures here JCB but never actually saw a machine in Tas. I think they were used a bit up in Queensland (Northern Aust) in the vegetable & sugar cane industries but never caught on here either.

Re: Culivation Implements in Tasmania
Thanks Bobo, I think this is a type of shallow plough, from Kverneland. I havent seen any in use in this part of the world though.
