“Thanks Craig for the new lighting setup on our STX. The front lights replaced perfectly the existing headlights. You couldn’t tell the difference until you turned them on. Brilliant! no need for extra lights or spot lights. By replacing 4 existing rear lights, we now turn on have half the rear lights, for three times the amount of light on the bar and box.”
Craig, as a former farmer who understands the shortfalls of much of today’s machinery in respect to their lighting, has transformed our operation by updating and modernizing our harvesters, tractors, chaser bins, spreader, air-seeder carts, utilities and field bins with the installation of high tech lighting and cameras.
We now have a much safer and more efficient farming environment to work in thanks to Craig.
There seems to be so many options now in the market if you are looking for new lights for your agricultural machinery, especially the online options of mostly dubious quality.
The first question I ask when looking to purchase is; are they good quality and will they last?
The second question is; are they good value for money?
The third question; which is actually the most important is, what lights do I actually need?.
The lights supplied by Central Wheatbelt Imports are very good quality and excellent value, but the best reason to buy from CWI is that Craig Gorfin (owner) will actually ask you what type of machine are you going to put them on? And he will know what it is. He will then ask you what sort of conditions do you work in, ie; excessive rocks or hills or small pieces as this will mean you will need more powerful lights.
I just make one call to Craig now and give him the model numbers and size of the machines that I need lights for and I buy whatever he recommends.
Once the lights are fitted the increased productivity and safety are obvious.
Morawa Farmer and Contractor who has been purchasing Lights and Camera Equipment from CWImports for many years
After trialing many and varied drift reducing nozzles, Jason Lummis believes he is finally on a winner to control drift, after fitting the Air Bubble Jet to their hooded sprayer for spraying in the vineyards he manages.
The range of Air Bubble Jets distributed by Central Wheatbelt Imports have traditionally only been fitted to broad acre boomsprays. They are now also finding a home in hooded sprayers for work in vineyards and orchards.
Jason Lummis from Rosbercon Vineyard fitted a set of .04 Air Bubble Jets to his boom for spraying under vines. He tried other low drift and air induction nozzles with limited success and was more than pleasantly surprised by the performance of the Billericay Air Bubble Jet used in his spraying program.
Jason stated that not only was drift kept to an absolute minimum, but he felt that “brown out of the weeds was quicker“.
This sentiment was also echoed by another producer who purchased a set of nozzles for his boomspray at the Newdegate Field days. He trialled them first on his fire break boom. Instead of the usual drift going everywhere, including onto his valuable crop, the fire break boom was “like a knife edge going around the paddock”.
Mark Schilling from Kadina on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia has seen the benefits to his farming operation of using Camera Systems supplied by CW Imports based in Perth.
On seeing the CWI Camera system and realising its versatility, Mark immediately purchased five camera systems. They were fitted in semi trailers for loading grain and reversing onto augers, in harvesters for monitoring grain tank levels and the engine bay and in tractors towing chaser bins. The boomspray also had one fitted to check the hard-to-see nozzles behind the wheels. He also fitted them to the air seeder bins to enable the operators to keep a constant visual on the air seeders operations.
Mark says the cameras are a simple and easy system to use and bring great safety benefits for himself and his employees. They have helped his harvest operations run smoothly and efficiently and their use is only limited by the need to see where you now can’t. Mark is now considering putting one on top of the tubulator to check on grain flow.
