It’s rare for a company to have ‘all hands-on deck’ at a machinery field day.
But at this year’s Dowerin field days Ausplow fielded its specialist staff from designers, to technicians, sales, technical support, operations manager, general manager and, of course, managing director John Ryan AM.
According to company sales and marketing manager Chris Blight the focus this year was on the company with the opportunity for DBS owners and the general public to speak with company staff.
“We regard ourselves as family with our clients and I think we have a fairly unique relationship from which many of our improvements have been generated from this relationship,” Chris said.
“As a company we are constantly evolving our products to ensure they are of the highest standard to meet Australian conditions.
“And we aim to ensure the finish of our products is second to none.”
It is widely known throughout the industry that Ausplow products hold their value and this is reflected in high market demand for used DBS precision seeders and Multistream air seeders.
“Many DBS owners have told me they have actually got more for their bar than what they paid for it,” Chris said.
With the DBS concept of precision seeding well proven after more than 25 years in the market place, Chris said the Multistream had also proven its value.
“We are getting increased sales for bar and bin now because of the flexibility and versatility we can offer, whether it be granular or liquid nutrients,” Chris said.
“It’s a conversation we have with all our clients to determine which is the best configuration that suits their enterprise for seed and fertiliser placement because there are a variety of ways of achieving precision placement.
“And whichever way you choose, you also are still achieving the best environment in which plants can grow with a healthy root system.
“In that regard nothing much has changed over those more than 25 years, with the DBS providing a precision system that achieves as optimum a soil environment as possible through the growing season for plants to thrive.
“That has always been the company’s focus in developing and designing our products.”
Another hallmark of Ausplow’s reputation is its after-sales service support.
“We always make a point of going out to farms to check on DBS owners to see if everything is going okay and to get feedback on equipment performance,” Chris said.
“This has helped us enormously in evaluating and in many cases implementing good ideas that come from owners.
“Everybody is unique and so we understand that it can take different adjustments for different conditions to achieve optimum performance from our products.
“And that’s what we want for all our clients.”
