The New Zealand market and SVgroup
New Zealand has the most challenging conditions in the world in terms of landscape. ‘So, we need the best machines in the world’. Important for AgriZone and Cochranes are the performances the machines can deliver. ‘When it comes to machine performance you cannot go past the Schuitemaker Rapide. The unique trailing pick-up is able to work challenging contours like no other.’ Hines continues: ‘The chop quality of the Rapide through the hydraulicly pressurized knife bank is of the highest quality. The strong build construction and the machine quality has proven itself on the New Zealand market and continue to do so.’
