Equipment allows you to record which machinery was involved in any job.

Equipment is split into two categories – machine or implement – and each category has a number of types.

Machine or implement?

A machine is any unit of equipment which powers its own movement – for example, a tractor, ATV, or self-propelled sprayer.

An implement is any unit of equipment which engages with the ground or applies a product to a field – for example, a drill, fertiliser spreader, or set of rolls.

Some pieces of equipment fit into both of these categories, so may need setting up as both a machine and an implement.
