What our customers have to say;

"With the higher production, we feed some palm kernel and we got this Auger Bucket 2 or 3 seasons ago and it's one of my favorite attachments. We're able to feed out 800kg in 5 or 10 minutes with zero wastage really, a cool wee bit of kit"- Caleb Holmes, Otago Farmer.

"I am very pleased with the performance of our new Rata Auger bucket and the 300mm diameter auger evenly spreads the maize and PKE, giving the cows a good chance at a feed"- Mark Johnson, Dairy Farmer.
