With seeding in full swing around Australia what is the cost of a 18mt air seeder operating for 3 hrs with no seed being sown??
This happened to a client last night who has now purchased another screen and cameras to try and eliminate the chance of this happening again.
Is $1100.00 that big a cost to avoid this happening? What is the cost if this miss is not picked up until the crop emerges? Lost yield and weed competition reduces the camera cost even more.
Also today I ha...
Case STX Retro-Fit Lights
The new Retro-fit replacements lights for the earlier STX, Magnum and Patriot are selling extremely well with very positive feed-back on the amount of light they emit. There big plus is they put no extra load on the alternator and fit straight in, no need to manufacture brackets or extra wiring harness's.
So much so that I had client ring this week that put a set in his 2009 435 STX and raved about them, he then realized how bad the rest of his lights were!! Another 8 lights dis...
Loading Grain Safely
We have been successfully supplying cameras for placement in grain tipping bins for about 15 years now.
Now with Wireless technology it is possible to place a camera on the end of an Auger, up to 110 foot Auger so far, and stay on the ground watching the grain flow with the screen being powered by a small battery pack. No more rushing up and down silo ladders to shut of the grain flow, or even chocking of augers because you can stay in control from ground level and know how the ...
Fertilizer Streaming Nozzles
We have just dispatched a set of Trident Fertilizer Streaming Nozzles out to an existing client as for the last couple of days he has seen his neighbor out applying Flex-N (liquid Nitrogen) using our Fertilizer Streaming Nozzles, whilst their boom-spray has been sitting still because it is to windy to operate!!
What is the opportunity cost he has lost?? with another 7-12mm of rain forecast in the next couple of days. As he said these Fertilizer Streaming Nozzles will be a cheap ...

JD Harvester Lights
We have just had a farmer from Central Queensland purchase the led13x5fl and led13x5sp lights for one of his JD9770's.
They installed them, did one night's work and rang up and ordered two more sets for his other two machines. They were very impressed with the quality and amount of light produced and the big comment was that they now had no shadows!!
These lights also are fitted with same plugs as on the 9770 to enable ease of fitment.

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 enable...
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 ri...
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 deal...

I have had an interesting week so far.
Started with an Agronomist who was recommended by one of his clients to call in and see me, re some new driving lights for his crew-cab. He had hit a bird whilst driving and broken the brackets that were part of the integral brackets holding the cheap lightbar on that he had purchased of e-bay, hence no more lightbar!!. He then purchased a pair of 9×10 LED spots as replacement.
Today, I had a client who had purchased a pair of 12×10 2...
Wireless antennae wire signal issues
I have had a call from one of our customers (thanks Chad) who experienced issues whilst installing a wireless camera in the seed tank on his tow behind air cart.
He installed the screen in the tractor and camera at the top of the grain tank pointing down at the roller with the external antennae sitting at the front of the air-cart with the cable just looped outside the air cart. He checked that everything was working OK and he had a clear picture and a full 4 bars of signal on h...
I have received great feed-back from one client that was experiencing buzzing on his am/fm radio when the new LED lights he fitted to the roof of his tractor were turned on. The fact he had interference at all surprised me.
As it turned out it was a simple fix, he lifted the roof, moved the power wire supplying the lights away from the radio antennae wire, they were touching, even thou still sheathed and the problem was solved, no more buzzing. He had installed the same lights...
2km/hr Faster at night with the two lights
“2 km/hr faster at night with the two lights , in the end I just disconnected the two middle lights on the header and used existing wiring and fuses etc”, Ian McNeil, Kellerberrin on a 8010 with a 39ft front
See 12X10 LED 2 Row for photos
Our phone is running hot at this time of the year for lights to increase vision for night time operations, especially on older harvesters. With these machines I do try and encourage owners to replace original power hungry lights rather than just add lights. LED lights are very power efficient and in a lot of instances will provide 5 times more light and use a third of the power of a standard light.
If you need distance light a LightBar will be very efficient at supplying this ...

Beware the snake oil salesman
It is disappointing to hear of people spending good money and not receiving what they expect.
I have recently had a phone call from Brian in NSW who had just spent in excess of $4000 on 4 lightbars on his 3185 Fastrac used to pull a 20 mt BoomSpray. His problem, he could not see the end of his booms! He had purchased the LightBars from and had them fitted by his local auto electrician. He did have plenty of light, but most off the light was not were it was needed. I did feel v...

Nozzle Calculator increases Safety
Summer spraying usually includes chemicals that specify on
the label that a nozzle producing either a medium or coarse droplet be used.
With some nozzles this difference can be achieved just by a change of operating
The Billericay Farm Services Air Induction Nozzle,
distributed by Central Wheatbelt Imports, produces (depending on pressure)
droplets in the medium and coarse category. BfS have produced a nozzle
