Farms using this brand machines note the structural reliability and stably high rates of forage preparation achieved by operators of these harvesters.
ACROS 590 Plus, which is in serial production since 2013, was acknowledged as the best novelty of the year. Its structure is designed considering operation in the most adverse agro-climatic condition.
