With deep Australian roots in farming, technology and manufacturing, Cowra-based K-Line Ag has made a name for itself as a trusted manufacturer of innovative and reliable tillage machinery.

The K-Line Ag Speedtiller is customisable for applications from vineyard cultivation to oilseed and cereal production.

The K-Line Ag Speedtiller is customisable for applications from vineyard cultivation to oilseed and cereal production.

A family-owned company, K-Line Ag designs and builds farm equipment to exacting standards, utilising a research and development team familiar with the demanding working conditions of Australian terrain.

The K-Line Ag Speedtiller has found a niche in strategic tillage systems as a one-pass tillage tool.

"The success of the Speedtiller comes from its ability to improve soil humus levels, reduce erosion, and combat chemical resistant weeds in a single pass utilising a single implement," a company spokesman said.

"The combination of the adjustable rubber-torsioned jump arm system with disc undercut and the effective action of the levelling crumbler roller makes the Speedtiller ideal for stubble incorporation and seedbed preparation.

"Stubble incorporation builds up humus levels in the soil profile, feeding soil microbes, increasing soil organic matter and promoting healthier soils with less reliance on outsourced nitrogen in future seasons.

"With herbicide resistance becoming an issue as summer rains increase and temperatures warm, many farming districts use strategic tillage programs with Speedtillers to help eradicate summer weeds and decrease the reliance on chemicals.

"This gives chemicals a longer cycle before weeds become resistant to them.

"Because it's designed with an appreciation for the variability of Australian soils and cropping types, the Speedtiller is customisable for applications from vineyard cultivation to oilseed and cereal production.

"Trailing and three-point linkage versions are available, and finishing rollers can be selected based on soil type - hollow crumbling rollers for loamier soils, and spring rollers for stickier, clay-type soils." 

MaxxRipper

The K-Line Ag MaxxRipper is a heavy duty deep ripping machine, manufactured for breaking hard pans and deep tillage applications.

"With deep ripping tines to break up compacted soils to a depth of approximately 600mm, the K-Line MaxxRipper is the ultimate ground breaker," the spokesman said. 

"Where soil compaction is encountered, the MaxxRipper is the answer for superior root structure, greater nutrient uptake, healthier plant development and ultimately, higher yields.

"With a full range of coulters and harrows as well as tillage and soil-conditioning machinery, K-Line Ag has got your tillage and residue issues covered."
