The owner of the Farm King and Versatile farm equipment brands has added tillage equipment to both product lines.
Winnipeg’s Buhler Industries, which in February bought seeding equipment maker Ezee-On Manufacturing, said Wednesday it will produce its new tillage lines at the Ezee-On plant at Vegreville, Alta.
A “complete range” of offset discs, tandem discs, cultivators and chisel plows is available through all Farm King and Versatile dealers, the company said in a release.
The products are to be displayed this week in Regina at the Western Canada Farm Progress Show, which ends Friday.
Buhler said its new lines of discs are billed as having “the heaviest bearings in the industry today,” featuring limited warranties of three years on 410WSS bearings and seven years on T2-215 bearings.
All disc gangs are torqued to 3,200 ft-lbs., the company said. Steel-fabricated full spools and optional interlocking half-spools will ensure gangs stay tight and will eliminate broken spools, the company said.
Farm King and Versatile tandem discs will also include a full floating hitch, meant to ensure the disc will cut level regardless of terrain, and to help prevent damage from rocks and “other obstacles” in the field, Buhler said.
Buhler president Dmitry Lyubimov on Wednesday described the new product lines as “an important step in delivering a full line of equipment to our dealer networks.”
Buhler’s Farm King brand covers a range of various short-line products; the company’s Versatile brand, meanwhile, was relaunched in 2008 as the sole mark of Buhler’s tractor division.
The company, Lyubimov said, has been “very open about our intention to have Versatile offer a product line that caters to the large-acre farmers, and these implements are a major part of that strategy.”
