Cropping Review – Tillage Drive Days 2017

Ausplow Tillage Demo Drive Days


Do you remember the Tillage Drive Days 2017? Three months ago we were running two different sets of Tillage Drive Days. In our central branches we had an Ausplow DBS demo rig, and around our Corowa and Shepparton branches we were demoing the Case IH Magnum Rowtrac and a Horsch Sprinter NT.

And it is looking impressive. See below the pictures and compare the results.
