Having come across Ziegler’s new Combi Expert cultivator on display at Agritechnica in 2019, we were keen to use the pre-production unit to prepare ground for sugar beet last spring. And the machinery maker was glad to help, sending the very machine that had been on display at the show. But after hitting a couple of early snags, Ziegler took the harrow back, incorporating a number of design changes and improvements for production spec models. It then returned with the updated version for this driving impression last summer.
