With the Cosmo Bully range freshly arrived in NZ, Farm Trader headed to Pukekohe to test the Cosmo bully BPF 180
The Cosmo Bully range is a new line-up of imported into New Zealand by Kiwi company Fieldmaster. The Italian-designed machinery is built in India, and although new to New Zealand, it has been sold in Australia for more than three years, proving to be popular.
With the Cosmo BPF mulcher freshly arrived in the country, I headed to a Pukekohe property, near the company’s headquarters, to see how it performed in our conditions.
Being hitched up to a John Deere 6140M was definitely a bit of overkill for a 1.8 meter mulcher, but this was for no other reason than using the most convenient tractor available. Our test patch was some waste vegetable crop needing to be mulched and some rough grass around the edge of the field that needed topping.
The Cosmo BPF range of heavy-duty mulchers offers three models, from 1.8 meters to 2.25 meters wide. As with other Cosmo machinery I’ve seen, first impressions are of how well the machine is built, with plenty of thick folded steel plate used in the construction and tidy welding and finishing with shiny powder-coated Cosmo orange paint.
