The Mouldboard Plough and the Mini Shallow Plough
The success aquired in our international expansion is mainly due to the high quality of our machinery, which are able to adapt to any working requirement. Both for the choose of its security systems as well as the combination of its rear accesories and wheels that are able to create a perfect plough for each type of land.
Nevertheless, we could say that our products, the mouldboard plough and the shallow plough are the ones that have had the best welcome. The first ones were requested from the very beggining, and the second ones are increasing its presence due to the rise of ecological agriculture worldwide. This are a product for high-productivity shallow soil-working, which is specially designed for an effective mechanical control of plagues as an alternative to the use of phytosanitary products.
