Ausplow general manager Chris Farmer provided an upbeat report to farmers this week at the Farmers Centre (1978) Technology Expo at Katanning.
Speaking on the Pro-D retrofits, Chris said there had been strong uptake and he expected that situation to continue this year, particularly as more owners look to retrofit existing DBS bars.
“DBS owners who have used the Pro-D have reported back to us how easy it is to change digging depth settings,” Chris said. “And they appreciate they don’t have to swap digging blades.
“There is more consistent separation between seed and fertiliser with the ability to sow deeper if, for example, you’re establishing faba beans.
“Using the Pro-D saves a lot of hassle and there’s a real value equation with longer-wearing life, apart from not spending as much on blades.”
According to Chris, a forward order program for Pro-D units for the 2017 seeding season will see them offered at the current price.
So speak with your local dealer or contact Ausplow direct.
Looking ahead, Chris said Ausplow was geared for future growth with the establishment of a new factory in Leith Road, Kwinana.
“That will increase of manufacturing capabilities to meet increasing demand throughout Australia,” he said.
“It’s a multi-million dollar investment that makes a big statement concerning Ausplow’s future.
“We’re definitely here to stay,” he said.
“Ausplow always have been to the forefront in modern agricultural with many innovations that have claimed world patents and we’ve got more R&D projects on the go now,” Chris said.“You can expect to see more new products from the company into the future.”
Interestingly, Farm Weekly machinery writer Ken Wilson, who attended the Expo, said that Ausplow was now Australia’s biggest seeding and tillage manufacturer in Australia, joining a prestigious club of historic innovators which have included the likes of John Shearer, Horwood Bagshaw and Gyral Implements.
