Bute FRames

Built for farmers. An award-winning machine.

Machine of the year

Working with Horsham Hydraulics, we’ve created an aggressive machine that can control weeds, manage crop residue and prepare the soil for planting, all with fewer passes. 

Our frame and disc chain combo is the best piece of surface tillage equipment on the market. It’s turning heads amongst farmers and winning acclaim, having taken out the Machine of the Year Award at the 2023 Wimmera Field Days.

The benefits of the Bute Frame

The Bute Frame builds on the tillage manufacturing experience of Bute Chains and the engineering and hydraulics excellence of Horsham Hydraulics.

It took three years to develop the machine, designed from the ground up by listening to the needs of farmers. Horsham Hydraulics designed and manufactured the frame, with Bute Discs designing and manufacturing its patented disc chain system.

The Bute Frame provides some serious benefits for farmers:

  • Featuring Bute Discs’ disc chain system, with weights that can be quickly added and removed from the chains. This allows farmers to tailor their set-up to their farm’s exact needs, depending on the soil type and recent conditions.
  • Remove close to 100% of weeds, such as fleabane, in one pass.
  • While the disc chain system can be fitted to the frames of all major brands, in combination with the Bute Frame, farmers have the most aggressive frame and disc chain on the market.
  • Capable of working in the toughest of conditions
