If you’re a producer who wants to get the most from your land, a station employee, contractor or council plant operator, block out at least one of the 1st, 4th or 5th of June in your calendar.

Come and see first hand, what you can achieve with a grader and other machinery.  These are proven techniques that reduce track and vehicle maintenance, travel time, soil loss and silt flows, workplace safety issues and fence line erosion while at the same time increasing the stability and effectiveness of your fences and firebreaks.
