Chains and Bogged machinery can be disastrous
Sorry to harp on about the dangers of extracting bogged machinery. But just had a gentleman ring from NSW who has just put a chain through the front grill of a SP sprayer. Sprayer got bogged so a tractor and chain pulled them out ok, it was still soft country in front so they stayed hitched together in case.
The sprayer went down again without the tractor driver realizing and the added tension snapped the chain sending it into the front of the sprayer.
Fortunately no personal were injured but the sprayer was out of action.
The gentleman is now a client who purchased a 75Tonne by 20 metre package including axle straps, shackles and bridle. In his opinion safety for his personal is paramount!
Snatch Strap works
I was speaking to a client last week (Feb 2020) who purchased a 75 Tonne snatch strap in July 2017 to replace a cable that snapped whilst extracting a bogged SP Sprayer(they were lucky no one was injured bar machinery when cable snapped).
My client was saying that the snatch strap combined with a bridal, is a lot easier to use and with the elasticity when pulling stuck machinery out of bogs the whole process is a lot gentler on machinery. He also mentioned that because they have the proper strap on hand, the urge isn’t to try and get a machine out by itself, which usually results in a bigger mess, but wait for another tractor and strap to turn up and do it easily with less horsepower and mess being made.!
Cameras with LED in-built, YES
Yes, here at Central Wheatbelt Imports, we do listen!! I have had a couple of clients mention over time that visibility inside some steel air-seeder tanks has not been the greatest. I mentioned this to our factory and asked if a camera could be manufactured with LED instead of infra-red and YES they have come up with a 92 degree camera with 4 LED instead of infra-red.
The vision is a lot clearer and initial feed-back has been very positive. Pricing is the same and cameras can be easily swapped over.
please search the Dash Camera Observation System section and look for cwicam92LED
The End of Field Day Attendances
Just to let those of you who I regularly catch up with at the Wagin Woolorama and Dowerin Field Days know, that I will no longer be exhibiting at these events.
It has not been an easy decision to make, but for my health I believe it is the right one. (There is a lot of unseen heavy lifting involved in the preparation, organizing, setting up and then dismantling a Field Day Site)
I am finding that after attending these field days, it takes 2-4 weeks and a couple of visits to the medical profession to sort my back out and get my body on an even keel again.
I feel that I have reached the stage in my life when I don’t need that pain any more!!.
I am trusting that with my loyal dealer network through-out Australia that my business will continue to survive. Of course I welcome any and all phone calls and if you are in Perth, please feel free to call in.
Keep in touch and hope to see you soon. Cheers, Craig
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 had another client ring to purchase a couple of cables that over time have been damaged and needed replacing. He praised the cameras usefulness inside the seeder tanks for the time they saved when changing varieties and ensuring the system is working properly.
If in doubt please give me a ring on 0893352700 to discuss options and yes we do ship around Australia.
