What an end to the year it has been! Farmers surprise us every year with their ability to grow decent crops on such little rainfall. We forward plan stock in January to February for the upcoming hay and harvest season and I don’t think anyone expected the hay season to ramp up like it did this year. Availability of hay equipment was our limiting factor this year and we are very appreciative for all the support we received from our valued clients with machine purchases, spare parts and workshop servicing. We welcomed a new member to the sales team in October, Grant McNees is local to the area and comes to us with farming experience, and a can do attitude. Grant being an existing client of Belle-Vue Trading already owned and operated New Holland machinery and fitted into the team instantly. Service Technicians attended training on Silvan Airblast and over-row sprayers in Dandenong giving them extensive hands on lessons on both mechanical and electronic aspects of the Australian manufactured sprayers. With cropping next on the agenda with have ordered stock of Kuhn fertiliser spreaders and I encourage you to enquire early if you would like to take advantage of the price advantage associated with these units. Morris Industries have limited stock of Quantum Air Drills available for cropping 2020. If you would like a quotation on one of the remaining units please contact the sales team today. Miller Nitro and Hardi both have exceptional pricing on SP Sprayers with options to suit every application. As harvest closes in we will be enjoying a much needed break with friends and family over the Christmas and New Year period and we would like to wish you and your family’s all the very best over the festive season.

Welcome to our last edition for 2019. We are all very busy with the harvest and hay seasons so it’s great to see lots of produce coming in and commodity prices holding steady. The year thus far has thrown some significant challenges our way, tremendous rain fall in winter followed by a reasonably dry finish in some areas has brought crops in early. The team here in Warracknabeal have been very busy working with headers and balers. As they all fire up and get going there are always minor issues to be addressed but thankfully nothing major, here’s hoping it stays that way. Whilst talking about service, the team have been busy brainstorming ways we can improve our service provisions in order to stream line preseason servicing on all types of farm machinery. Details of our header pre-season offer will be released early in the new year, so be sure to keep an eye out for those. With harvest in full swing it’s now time to knuckle down and reap the rewards of a hard year’s work, however it’s also important to make sure we all stay safe. It’s easy to become complacent, especially when stressed and tired, so let’s all play it safe and not cut corners. With the year drawing to a close I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all our valued customers the very best for the new year, I hope you all have a merry and safe Christmas. I would also like to say a massive thank you to all my valued colleagues here at Belle-Vue Trading for the hard work and tireless efforts they have put in throughout the year to ensure our customers most important assets are kept moving in the paddock. Thanks,

Justin Ward

FACES OF BELLE-VUE TRADING TIM RUWOLDT Senior Technician WARRACKNABEAL Tim Ruwoldt grew up in the small farming community of Brim, just north of Warracknabeal, where he spent most of his childhood with either a football or cricket bat in hand. After high school Tim relocated to Melbourne where he obtained employment as a roof tiler, however Tim quickly realised city life wasn’t for him so he made the decision to return to his home town of Brim where he worked in the CRT Shed for McPherson’s. The opportunity then presented itself for Tim to work for Carman’s in Horsham as a Windscreen Fitter. Tim excelled in his role with Carman’s and was promoted to Workshop Manager. After 7 years with Carman’s Tim felt ready for a new challenge which lead to the decision to begin an apprenticeship here at Belle-Vue Trading as a Diesel Mechanic in 2015. Tim completed his apprenticeship and became qualified in 2017 and is now one of our senior technicians, specialising in New Holland combines. Tim is incredibly passionate about, not only headers, but the New Holland Brand. Tim is a proud dad to 3 young kids, outside of work if he isn’t talking about CR Headers you’ll find him spending time with his family.

PARRY BROTHERS POWLETT New Holland T8.435 SmartTrax & Big Baler 1290 Plus

The Parry Family are now into their 4th generation of farming, Leigh and Helen, and now, Angus, Adam and Miles, in the Powlett Plains area. Moving away from a split operation of cropping and livestock a little over 5 years ago, now solely a broad acre cropping operation. Farming primarily cereal crops, (wheat, barley, oats and canola), but also planting the occasional legume crop, depending on rotations. As well as grain farming, they also cut a fair bit for hay, both small squares, which primarily go through their Stockfeed business, Sandhurst Stockfeeds, and now with the purchase of New Holland’s 1290 Plus, will move into big squares as well. What prompted you to go with the New Holland Big Baler? We’ve run New Holland equipment for quite a few years now and are yet to be disappointed. We’ve got 2 BC5070 New Holland small square balers, both purchased from Belle-Vue, which we’re happy with. Ultimately, New Holland hay equipment is a tried and test product. What prompted you to choose the SmartTrax? With the development of more irrigation, and being in the process of transitioning to a controlled traffic arrangement, a tracked machine is something we had been considering for a while. But ultimately not exactly sure what to go with. Soil compaction is something we’re thinking more and more about, and tracks of course are the best for floatation and traction. Furthermore, as the majority of this tractor’s life will be spent on irrigation, efficiency in getting power to the ground is also something which was at the top of our list as it would be pulling large 3-point linkage implements. I would say the SmartTrax have gone above our expectation, as we were expecting it to ride a little rough, as a lot of tracked machines do, but that certainly isn’t the case for the T8.435 half-track.

How have you found the team at Belle-Vue Trading to deal with? I was speaking to one of them about this just the other day. We’ve been dealing with Belle-Vue for a good while now. I don’t have a bad word to say about any of them. The entire team across the board have been great. They’re friendly, knowledgeable, and their after sales service has been excellent. So, they’ve been great to deal with.

What are some of the stand out features of these two machines? Well the stand out feature for the SmartTrax is in the name, tracks can’t be beaten on floatation and compaction. Their ability to get power to the ground is also hard to beat. Having a good track record with Belle-Vue, and like I said earlier, New Holland’s hay equipment being a tried and tested product, were really the determining factors for purchasing the 1290 Plus Big Baler. Have you noticed any gain in productivity since upgrading to the New Holland Big Baler? We haven’t owned our own big square baler before, in the past we’ve used contractors. So therefore, I would say yes, our productivity has increased dramatically.

PROVES ITS WORTH OVER THE YEAR Almost 14 months ago, we interviewed the Sanford family of Beulah Victoria about their brand new HARDI RUBICON 9000 with 54m HARDI PARAGON Aluminium boom and H-SELECT technology. Now, after an estimated 800 hours of spraying, the Sanford family have used the big self-propelled sprayer through a full cropping cycle – so we were keen to hear how the machine had performed. “It’s an extra 3,000 litres compared to the CASE Patriot we used to have,” says Tim Sanford, who does most of the spraying on the farm, “…the machine’s just 50% bigger all around.” So despite have some 13,000 acres (5,260 ha) of their Victorian Mallee farm in wheat, barley and lentils last season, Tim found he didn’t need to put in any massive spraying sessions on the RUBICON. Keeping ahead of the seeders did mean some 12 hour days while they were sowing, but even then Tim was able to get over 2,000 acres sprayed with breaks to do other jobs on the farm. “It’s nice and quick to fill up,” he smiles, “so it gets round the paddocks quickly.” While the RUBICON’s capacity was a big advantage, the sprayer’s boom set-up also made all the difference. Its 54m coverage delivered a 150% productivity increase over the 36m boom, and Tim found it just as easy to handle. “The HARDI boom ride is just fantastic,” he reports. “I usually sit at around 25 kilometres an hour and everything we used to go over with the 36 metre boom we can cover at that same speed with our 54 metre boom.” What really set this big boom apart was having HARDI H-SELECT nozzle control technology installed. The computerised and air-activated H-SELECT manages up to four nozzles per nozzle body, to deliver consistent spray dosage and droplet size regardless of speed variations. “You always have those corners you wish weren’t getting quite so much chemical,” says Tim, “and the outside of the corners you wish got a bit more.” With H-SELECT compensating for turns automatically, the Sanfords have been free to focus on the day and the water rate. The way H-SELECT works also means they could adjust the droplet size from the cab, on the move. “Drift is a major concern with chemical use now,” Tim points out. “With H-SELECT we’re able to change our nozzles during spraying to better suit the wind conditions. “If you’re just going along and you can see it’s picking up a bit breezier, we can coarsen up those droplet sizes and it seems to help with our results there.” “I’d recommend H-SELECT to other farmers just because it does offer a lot more versatility,” Tim Sanford says. “You can speed up, slow down, and your droplet size remains the same.” In all, Tim reckons the HARDI RUBICON’s combination of capacity, boom size and H-SELECT technology is a real winner. “It really comes down to capacity and being able to go that bit further, that bit longer each day,” he concludes. “The capacity is great. You can get the spraying done and the H-SELECT helps with that immensely.”
