We've just made it easier to calibrate your fertiliser spreader! Back in August 2016 we published this blog: HOW TO CALIBRATE A FERTILISER SPREADER, even though it's helped many farmers to spread accurately, calculating the required flow rate needed ...
Over time as stocking rates have increased, machinery and implements become heavier and larger, along with repeated tillage operations many farmers have begun to see their pasture growth and crop yeilds decrease due to subsoil compaction issues. Subs...
Recently we caught up with Jono Doig, the manager of a large dairy support operation just out of Ashburton to see how they are benefitting from the best of both bales and stacks! We went to catch up with Jono as they are utilising a unique silage sto...
We're in our second year of operation with the Rata Beet Bucket now.
We've just been transitioning some weaner heifers to beet over the past few weeks so it’s been getting a lot of work just recently, it certainly saves us a lot of time and particularly a lot of man hours, so all in all the buckets done exactly what we asked of it.

I'm impressed with the results these discs give, they contour the ground & hills while staying in the ground actually disking, even in this harder, dryer stony ground so I'm pretty pleased.
Hydraulic cut adjustment is awesome as you can adjust it on the go.
Great product & machine!

I got hold of Rata when I needed a Silage Grab, Forks & Quick Hitch. From past experience I had been impressed with the durability & simplicity of the gear. The Silage Grab has performed very well & the Quick Hitch makes the job so much easier, this one is well up there! Very high rated - so I can virtually pick up any load.
They’ve definitely helped me out!

We do about 4,000 individual wrapped bales per year, so its important to us to have Rata softhands to handle them, as they are really reliable, they don’t break & are definitely the best brand we’ve ever used!
Because we've found Rata gear to be so reliable we also have multiple sets of their Bale Forks & Versatile Grapples as well!

I bought a Rata Panerazer a bit over a year ago & have had great results out of it. Crops seem to get established earlier & also hang on for longer when its dry. We’ve also found when we have heavy rains & would normally get a bit of scouring… where we’ve used the Panerazer there’s been no run off at all.
It’s a great bit of kit!
