Re: 8430T plowing in Italy
Hi terratech.
Good deere's!
That kind of plow is that? Don't they be a little small for the tractors and for more tracks tractors saints.
It is in your farm or does service for other?

Re: 8430T plowing in Italy
What is the reason for plowing this deep?
The pictures on this site suggest that this is a purely italian phenomenon.
I´ve always been curious about this.

Re: 8430T plowing in Italy
Me too.

With the HP available, this tractor should be pulling a larger plough than this one.

Re: 8430T plowing in Italy
In my land the ground has 30% of clay normally, we make plowing at 40-50 cm, less deep is useless.
Our ground need 80-110 hp/furrow for this kind of plowing.

Re: 8430T plowing in Italy
Were I live a ploughing depth of 25-35cm is normaly choosen, depending on soil and crop. 25 to 40hp per 50cm furrow is sufficient for this.
So I wonder what is the big advantage in plowing half a metre deep every year that justifies the fuel and time consumption and the cost of a 300hp crawler to get approximately the same work output we get with a 150hp tractor?

Re: 8430T plowing in Italy
Normally we plow to cultivate high profit crop (> € 3000/hect.) like sugar beet seed, industry tomato or other industry vegetables.
If we cultivate some low profit crop like wheat, soybean or corn (commodities) we use sod seeding solutions or minimum tillage solution.
However, also in Italy we try economic new solutions, it's no nice to plow with over 300hp/3 furrow tractor also in Ravenna............

Those 3000€ it is alone for plowing? or also for the remainder of the trial (seeding, (!disking!). ..)

To Bràs

3000 € is the proceed for hectare of crop. The price of alone plowing is approximately 150€/hectare (1 hectare = 10000 mq)
