Opportunity Cost?

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.

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 dispatched to solve the problem. a mix of led8x5fl06 and led5x10fL03.

Thanks for the support and positive comments Andrew.

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 silo is filling.

A cheap investment for a lot of uses.

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 nights 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 they 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 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.

Good Feed-Back

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.
