Fieldmaster recently launched the Cosmo range in New Zealand. Farm Trader puts the UHH120 rotary hoe through its paces.
Fieldmaster has been building and importing agricultural machinery in New Zealand for more than 60 years and so has plenty of experience in knowing what is required from a machine to handle our conditions.
After much research into quality and suitability for Kiwi conditions, Fieldmaster recently began importing a wide range of Cosmo Bully machinery into New Zealand. Cosmo machinery is designed and tested in Italy but built in a modern facility in India – a combination of excellent design and efficient manufacturing.
Recently, I got a first-hand look at a new Cosmo Bully UHH120 rotary hoe being used by a grower in Pukekohe (not far from the Fieldmaster main office). Hitched up behind a John Deere 6140M, which handled it with ease, it was put to work getting cauliflower waste ready for the next crop to be planted.
Thanks to an excessively wet week prior, the ground was a little damper than ideal, but it still did a reasonably good job burying the vegetable waste and working up the soil. The three-metre working width also allowed it to cover a decent amount of ground.
