The machinery field days round throughout Australia was a huge success for Ausplow. Our new products, along with our existing product range, drew strong inquiry and there were plenty of questions from farmers relating to the company’s R & D program. There’s obviously a lot of farmers talking about Ausplow’s efforts to remain at the cutting edge of machinery development to improve farm productivity. One of the new products released was a Series II Multistream auger. Made of stainless steel, the 25cm (10in)-diameter auger tube will last owners a life-time, with many new features., including polymer-cupped flighting for increased efficiency, reduced noise and reduced seed damage. Hydraulic disc brake articulation is another feature, for free and balanced movement when unlocked - just press the brake button to keep in position. The hydraulic-powered inclination, not only makes it easier to handle, with no more lifting, but it is safer and easier to stow once a task has been completed. And an emergency stop circuit button at either end of the auger is industry-leading. An optional lighting package, illuminates both ends of the auger and a hopper hungry board increases the capacity of the standard hopper for an improved fill process. Another big interest at the Ausplow displays was the company’s moves towards liquid application kits. The company is purposely moving towards a liquid delivery system for in-row or edge-row applications using Friction Flow tubing from Furrow Management Systems. “We’re collaborating with Furrow Management Systems to maintain various products in suspension from tank to furrow, eliminating blockages,” Ausplow marketing and sales manager Chris Blight said. “Using this system will be more beneficial for section control and variable rate applications in lieu of nozzles.”
