Case Study: 20ft Speed-Forma CG2000XL
Speed-Forma CG2000XL vs 16ft Laser Bucket
Wayne Andreazza has run a 200 hectare farm in Wilbriggy, NSW for the past 30 years. Wayne farms a variety of cotton and other crops. Wayne uses Trevor Warr to do his land-forming and is among the first of Trevor’s customers to experience the difference the Speed-Forma CG2000XL makes to his operation.
We approached Wayne as the Grower after Trevor had completed his land-forming to get a better understanding of the benefits to the grower.
Some of the key points of interest
- Finishing speed and accuracy – The CG2000XL will finish around 21 Acres per hour to a blue top certified finish.
- Extra pass elimination – Wayne found he could plant directly into the finished surface without the need to till the ground.
- Low ground pressure – improves the quality of the finish by not leaving heavy compaction marks from wheels.
SPEED FORMA SOLUTION
CG2000XL is 6.2m wide and in this case towed at 14kph.
The Maths: 6.2 x 14000 = 86,800m² or 8.68 Hectares per hour. (21.4 Acres per hour)
LASER BUCKET SOLUTION
A 16ft (4.877m) Laser Bucket at 8kph.
The Maths: 4.877 x 8000 = 39,016m² or 3.9 Hectares per hour. (9.6 Acres per hour)
The result speaks for themselves with the Speed Forma CG2000XL able to cover twice the area in the same amount of time! Add to this that the Speed Forma is also capable of preparing your seed bed at the same time taking away the need to scarifier or till the lasered surface prior to planting.
