Madzugа farm:

I've been using DUCAT for several seasons. The harrow is unique due to its tines. I work at depth of 7 cm and I’m fully satisfied. The spring-loaded tine is reliable, and has already worked 2 seasons. Let me note, that we used DUCAT-5 on different soils and after different crops, and it showed good performance, especially in seedbed preparation. We use it for seedbed preparation (because it is light), for sowing barley, mustard.

Vasiliy Tkatch, Director of the farm (Dnipro region):

The harrow has already worked more than 1200 ha. I use it at depth of 10 cm. It is design is suitable even for dry soil. Tractor with harrow rides very smoothly. I saw this implement at the exhibition. I was interested in the design, but I had some doubts concerning the uniform depth. On the first day of work we realized that this purchase will be compensated in many times by a lot of benefits.


A spring tine of the DUCT provides fuel consumption, 3D protection of bearing unit (which eliminates breakage when hitting obstacles), self-cleaning of discs during work.

Vladimir, Chief Engineer of Garant agricultural company:

At first I was skeptical about purchasing of this machine, in particular about the announced operating depth, as I had some experience with domestic machines. But the practice has shown that the harrow had perfectly cultivated soil to a depth of 15 cm on the stubble, as well as on 400 hectares of sunflower without any complaints. DUCAT-5, which we bought this year, has a following system, consisting of two semi-frames of 2,5 m each, which provide perfect contours following and uniform harrowing of the soil at required depth.

Aleksandr Saparov, Chief Engineer of Spodobovka Agro Plus (Kharkiv region):

Usually bearing unit is the main trouble spot of disc harrow, but as for DUCAT we should admit good quality of units. We have been using this harrow for about 1,5 year, and there was no malfunctions.

Vladimir Strelnik, agronomist of Spodobovka Agro Plus (Kharkiv region):

The harrow’s speed is 15 km/h. It cultivates 60 ha per one shift and about several thousand a year. Fuel consumption is not very high, depending on working depth. DUCAT-8 has every chance to compete with foreign units, which are 2-3 times more expensive. Moreover, the harrow manufacturer is nearby, so you can always get the advice you need from people who have developed and assembled the harrow.


Viktor Sandul, Director of Niva company, Vinnitsya region

All machinery at my farm is imported, high-quality, expensive, from the world leading manufacturers. We used to high-quality and highly-performance machinery. The LIRA fully meets my requirements – it is not inferior to Canadian analogues: good design, assembly, endurable teeth.

Oleg Belous, Chief Engineer, Agrotechservice, Kharkiv region

When choosing a harrow, we were advised to buy LIRA, because of durable spring teeth. The harrow has worked 2 seasons very well, there are no complaints. We did no maintenance and repairs during work.


The LIRA tooth harrow was developed and launched into production in the late 90s and still (for more than 15 years!) LIRA is the most popular harrow in Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan.

Akeksandr Belik, Mayak, Kharkiv region

I have DUCAT-5 disc harrow and LIRA-24 spring harrow. I’m satisfied with the work of both units. Service work is very good, there were no problems with changing of tines. As a result, the aggregates have been working the third season, and they cope with a soil very well.



Ihor Tischenko, Merchanskoe cooperative, Kharkiv region

In 2015 the autumn was very hot and dry. As a result, we received an area of the barley remains, which caused breakage of ploughs. In spring we used the FRANC subsoiler to the depth of 25 cm, and made another pass with the SHILLING cultivator, and seeded sunflower. Practice has shown that the FRANC subsoiler can be effectively used both in autumn and spring. I shall note significant fuel savings – in 1,5-2 times! We also herd about compact disc harrows DUCAT and we are going to expand our machinery fleet. 



Aleksandr Bubelich, Owner of Zelenaya Energiya Agro, Odessa region

The work is great. It performs all necessary operations: cultivation and loosening, weeds combing out and levelling of the soil. And all of this only in one pass! After the second pass we will receive prepared soil, which can be usually achiever only with a special machine, which costs about 85 000 USD. But this cultivator is much cheaper.
