As the 2016 year ends, we hope everyone has nice holidays and successful 2017s. We have been staying warm and keeping livestock warm as well as unloading some corn for contract and checking on our bagged grain we still have in grain bags. We had a successful sales meeting and gained knowledge on our current products, great programs we will be able to offer our dealers, as well as new and improved products for 2017. We have hired some new employees and have picked up some new product lines and products that we are very excited about.
One of the new manufacturers we are going to be working with is Thielen Manufactering in Eden Valley, Minnesota. Thielen attachments have drive-over pit conveyors, open top conveyors, field loaders and much more. Check out their website here: http://tmwattachments.com/
Another new manufacturer is going to be selling the Snow Wizard Snow Blowers. We chose to sell these snow blowers above others because of their great price, versatility and farm tested strength. We like these snow blowers because they are 3pt hitch linkage and you can rotate the head 360 degrees without having to get off your tractor. You can also choose electric or hydraulic chute.
We also have exciting new products from our trusted manufactures like Richiger, Tubeline and Mchale.
Richiger grain baggers will be updated to new models called R1090s for 10ft bags. Richiger has improved their hopper design to allow grain to slip even more cleanly into the bag. The capacity of the bagger will be 39,000 bushels an hour as opposed to the previous 25,000 bushels per hour. You can also see in the diagram below how the grain flow moves differently and more efficiently in the new baggers. There will also be a new unloader option that is faster (if that’s even possible! Our unloader gets things done).
McHale has an exciting new product for wrapping round bales at high speeds called the Orbital Balewrapper. This wrapper (pictured below) is a self-loading machine with low maintenance required that runs itself with the press of a button from inside the tractor. It will wrap bales from 3’3” to 4’8”. Watch the video link here to see just how fast this machine is!
Lastly, Tubeline has come up with an economically priced, trailed, round AND square balewrapper in a single unit called the TL1700SR. This wrapper will be available in 2017 and will wrap 3x3 square bales and 4 or 5ft round bales. This unit will be great for customers who wrap smaller amounts of single bales per season, and perhaps custom people who need the option of round and square wrapped bales.
