Tatu’s ASTMatic 450 rippers help farmers to break up the hard plough sole to improve root penetration.

The reason Dirk chose to invest in the ASTMatic ripper is because of its penetration ability, the action of the thines, and frame strength.

“This implement works at a general depth of 450 cm and doesn’t form clods thanks to the angular tooth shape,” Dirk says.
