It is our commitment to have a solution for as many farmers as possible.
"For me its all about the farmers, they're willing to stick their neck out to get this technology on headers; they're my inspiration to keep going. Ben has been badgering me about making a Seed Terminator to fit his Massey Ferguson headers (9560) for two years. The geometry is different on Massey (and CLAAS), so we had to create a whole new chassis design, drive line the whole bit. We ended up doing two on two different models, it doesn't make sense economically because there aren't too many of them, but we get a great kick out of working with some great farmers to make a project like this happen. On the plus side they've had a really good maiden run this year."
DR NICK BERRY
"Mike really wanted to changeover to Massey, I tried to talk him out of it as we already had solutions for his John Deere s670 and 9770 headers, but he was committed. That's really the lesson, it shouldn't matter what header you have, you should still be able to access the technology."
The CLAAS on Kangaroo Island
"Travis and I have been talking about fitting a Seed Terminator to his Claas headers since the beginning. There's been lots of scratching heads and measuring up and we finally made the call to do it last minute this year. After doing the Massey project I had no energy left for more R&D, then I spoke to Travis and he got me fired up again. "
"She's going well, everything seems to be behaving itself, so no complaints, I hope we don't get this rain!"
