Die Kubota M8540-laeprofieltrekker van 63,1 kW is een van die modelle wat by die Synag-melkboerdery diens doen. Dit is soortgelyk aan die M9540 (70,9 kW) op die foto, maar het ’n nouer bakwerk en effens minder enjinkrag.

As jy nog nie met dié kompakte toerusting se groot krag kennis gemaak het nie, kan jy gerus glo wat boere oor Kubota se trekkers
te sê het. Kubota word by die Synag-boerdery by Randvaal ingespan

Synag-suiwelplaas melk met Kubota se krag

Kubota “Ons bied voorwaar ’n strawwe toets vir toerusting,” sê Tony Teerink, onderhoudsbestuurder van Synag-suiwelboerdery by Randvaal. Met sowat 4 000 koeie in melk in die vyf melkery in die groep, moet elke stukkie toerusting gereed wees vir ’n 24/7-toets, want dinge staan nooit stil nie.

Tony Teerink, onderhoudsbestuur-der van Synag-suiwelboerdery, sê die tegnologie in Kubota-trekkers is “asemrowend”

Voer moet vir al die beeste gemaak word en ’n trekker wat vir Synag wil werk moet homself gereed maak vir grondbewerking, plant-, strooi-, sny-, baal-, sleep- en mengwerk. Kubota het onlangs vir die diens aangetree en die koeie en hulle base glimlag van oor tot oor oor hierdie sinvolle toevoeging.

Só arbei Kubota op aarbeiplaas

Mike Miller en sy seun, Mark, van die Redberry-aarbeiplaas net buite George, het so ses jaar gelede half langtand gebyt aan die gedagte om die L39-trekker-laaigraaf-trugrawer (TLB) van Kubota aan te koop, want hulle het gedink hulle sal dit net af en toe kan gebruik.
