Throughout 2020 AMIA have been searching the world machinery market to find new partners to work with who can provide our customers with innovative machines to enhance and improve efficiency as well as productivity. We are delighted to introduce some of our new partners to you over the next few pages. Team AMIA

AMIA are delighted to announce that they are now the Exclusive UK & Ireland Distributors for the Canadian Manufacturer Honeybees range of Combine Flexible Draper Headers and Tractor Mounted Swathers. The Honeybee Air Flex Flexi-Headers are completely flexible headers allowing you to pick up and increase output on laid crops, increase ground speed and decrease losses. The Honeybee Headers feature a simple mechanical drive and are simple to set up and adjust in the field. In the picture below you can see where the cutter is ‘flexing’ over an obstruction on the ground saving damage to the machine but also demonstrating how the header gets under laid crops. The tractor mounted swathers can either be fitted on the front or rear linkage with reverse drive. These machines have proved to be very effective in UK and Irish fields in 2020 and are great for Organic farmers who have previously struggled with weed invasion of their crops. As the swathers can either feed to the left, right or centre this gives the operator the opportunity to make combining more efficient and potentially reduce the need for multiple combine units. The reason for this is that you can put two swaths into one, allowing your combine to work at full capacity and efficiency. We are delighted to have a number of units out working with customers already in the UK and have tested the machines throughout the UK and Ireland.

W NE A BR ND Further to the addition of the Honeybee range, in 2020 AMIA have added another Canadian company Highline Manufacturing to their stable of brands. Highline manufacture the fast working, reliable and innovative NT60 E Rock Picker which is capable of collecting rocks from 1.2m wide by 40 cm high, going down to small stones with everything in between. These machines have been trialed and sold throughout the UK and Ireland in 2020 allowing the customers to significantly reduce maintenance costs on cultivation and harvesting equipment. Operators can then generate a valuable bi-product in stones and rocks which they can either use or sell after using the machine. The machine itself is designed with the capacity to move quickly over the ground. You can hydraulically move the machine to the left or right of your tractor if you want to ad-hockly collect stones and rocks from your fields surface. They also provide a great opportunity for contractors looking for a different product or service to expand their service offering. The machine itself has a high lift bin bucket which can be used to either tip the buckets directly into a trailer, into a pile in the field or directly into a large telehandler bucket. Highline also manufacturer hydraulically powered Rock Rakes for rowing up stones.
