Good lighting equals less bogging, true story
With last years wet start to the year in mind, it reminds me of one client running two air-seeder units, different widths so working in different pieces as to why the smaller machine was bogging more than the larger machine durin g the night shift.
It wasn’t until he actually drove the smaller machine at night time that he realized the dilemma, the big STX had a 50in curve bar on the front and the smaller STX had no upgrade lighting. The difference with the extra lighting enabled the operators to see the soil color change were it was wet and so avoid getting bogged. A quick phone call was made and another light bar was installed.
Ensure adequate power
Just had a call from a long time client who installed two new 80 watt flood lights on the back of his air-cart to illuminate his tow behind air-seeder bar. They are the ledlb8x102rowflood, plenty bright enough, except one light was flashing from side to side and the first light to receive the power was working just fine.
The cause was lack of power. If it had been left to run, the lightbar would have burnt out.
If when installing additional lighting and things don’t feel right, check the amount of power they are receiving.
I do not get the chance to speak to many clients post their purchase, but it actually happened last week. Jack had purchased a curved lightbar along with 4 smaller lightbars for their new Case SP Sprayer and I rang to inquire if they were doing the job. (I firmly believe that any feed-back is good feed-back). Jack is more than happy with the amount of light they produce and went on to say that the lightbars on the Sprayer are doing a much better job than what his local dealer had fitted to his new Quad Trac, and no the dealer did not seek any advice from CWImports.
