The Sprayer WARRACKNABEAL • SWAN HILL
A Letter from the Director One of the most significant changes for both Belle-Vue Trading and myself personally in 2018 was the appointment of managers at both Branches. It is with great pleasure that I welcome Daniel Webster and Michael Everett to the management level in Swan Hill and Justin Ward at Warracknabeal. This has been a big step for me but one that I am very pleased with. These guys have a large amount of experience in this industry and the same passion I have for the growth and success of Belle-Vue Trading. While it can be hard to let go at times it has been a positive move for me personally and I sincerely look forward to working along side these guys as we move forward.
Since the establishment of Belle-Vue Trading in 2004 there has been many changes, massive growth and, as well as good times, some very testing times. 2018 proved to be one of the most testing years on record for many and the dry season put a strain on a large number of people right across Australia both financially and mentally. Fortunately, grain prices this year have somewhat soften the blow of poor yields and for those who are in areas across the Wimmera and Mallee that did not experience the dry to the same extent as others I hope a new tractor or header may be on the cards.
In closing I wish to say an enormous thank you to each and every member of my staff at Belle-Vue Trading. Without your dedication and hard work, it would not have been possible to survive the tough times and still achieve the growth we have in the last twelve months. It is an absolute pleasure to turn up each day and see the culture we have created within our team. It is never easy to keep staff long term, particularly in country areas where it can be remote for some to live, however a great environment generates good people and makes it a pleasure to come to work each day.
O O F
Over the last twelve months Belle-Vue Trading has witnessed some massive changes with sales heavily reduced due to the dry conditions. Our sales team has worked tirelessly to get sales on the board, and considering the year I am still very happy with their efforts. I understand that machinery purchases are a very difficult decision to make during tougher times and I really appreciate that our clients have continued to put their faith into Belle-Vue Trading by continuing to purchase quality new and used machinery.
We have an excellent Workshop team between our Swan Hill and Warracknabeal branches and the team has worked extremely hard to increase our client base while continuing to offer quality service to our existing clients. Over the last 12 months we have also dedicated a large amount of time towards extra training and support for our junior staff. This will ensure we can continue to provide the best service possible into the future as we are well aware of the importance of professional service to our customers. We understand if we can’t offer professional service we won’t survive in this industry. Along with the importance of professional service is parts supply and this is also another area we have worked very hard to improve. We have increased our parts holdings at both branches and also brought in new staff to assist in this area.
A very big thank you also to our loyal client base who continue to support us and work with our magnificent team. We clearly understand without you we wouldn’t have a business and wouldn’t survive long term. We aim continue to improve and grow our business to ensure we can give you the best service possible across machinery sales, parts and service. All the best to you all in 2019 and once again thank you. Regards, Chris Taylor

Precision productivity with HARDI H-SELECT The Sanford family have been farming their 5,260-hectare grain property on Victoria’s Mallee for four generations. The latest addition to the operation is a new 9,000 litre HARDI RUBICON Self Propelled Sprayer with the latest H-SELECT nozzle control technology.
O O F
“We were looking to increase capacity from our 6200 litre Case Patriot,” Tim Sanford explains. “The RUBICON 9000 had the capacity but we needed it to have droplet control too. H-SELECT was brand new when we started looking at the start of the year, but the more we learned the more it looked like the best solution for us.”
The Sanford’s property has a mixture of soils and terrain, including some ‘quite rough’ areas, and there is currently a mix of Canola, Barley, Wheat and Lentils to spray. So, Tim uses H-SELECT’s flexible droplet control in a number of ways, including switching to a larger droplet when drift becomes an issue – along fence lines or if the wind comes up while he’s spraying. “You don’t always know what droplet size you’ll need until you get to the paddock,” Tim says, “and things can change once you start spraying.” “Being able to optimize your droplet to the conditions means you can finish the job.”
The extra-large capacity of the RUBICON 9000 helps there too, with fewer refill breaks and faster, computer-aided refilling when you do.
“27kph would be a fairly typical speed for us,” Sanford reports. “Even with refilling I’ve finished one of our 260-hectare paddocks in three hours. I was pretty happy with that.” The Sanfords prefer to spray at reasonably high water rates and, with their previous sprayer, forward speed would be limited by the maximum flow rate. “Now we can keep our speed up and H-SELECT just opens nozzles to provide the flow rate,” says Tim. “And you know the droplet size stays right.” Equally, when they need to slow down in difficult country, H-SELECT uses its nozzle matrix to reduce the rate – maintaining both application and droplet accuracy. On that kind of land, the HARDI PARAGON boom’s unique ride also comes into its own. “You can see it just balances better,” says Tim. “If a front wheel drops, the boom just floats up there for a second and that stops it hitting the ground.” “The RUBICON rides over the land very well,” Tim Sanford concludes, “and H-SELECT gives us the precise control we need.”
FASTER, HEAVIER & MORE RELIABLE HAY BALING ROB PRINCE CONTRACTING Rob Prince is the proud new owner and operator of a New Holland 1290 Plus Big Square Baler and we were lucky enough to squeeze a few moments of his time whilst he was in the middle of pressing up wheat straw left behind a rotary header. Rob has owned New Holland hay equipment for years but the BigBaler 1290 Plus has really improved productivity throughout his hay contracting operation.
O O F
The BigBaler 1290 Plus has launched the already well-known New Holland Big Baler to the top of most purchasers lists.
The biggest improvement made to the “Plus” series is the 800mm longer bale chamber compared to the previous model.
“It just keeps pushing out well shaped, heavy bales one after the other, day after day.” Rob mentioned. We also fitted the New Holland bale weighing system allowing Rob the ability to give his client a total weight baled and also average bale weight which is very helpful with marketing and transport of the produce. We asked Rob if he thought the scales were accurate and he said that “from reports coming back from the weigh bridges I would say it would definitely be under 2% variation and it has been really easy to log client jobs in the screen.” Upgrades to the BigBaler 1290 Plus also include improvements to the knotter cleaning system with a different shaped cover and more powerful fans which have been proven to keep the knotters functioning reliably even in very dry, dusty conditions. Rob was really happy with knotters stating he has “only had one miss tie issue for the season and that was probably due to a very tight bale.”
With up to 48 plunger strokes per minute and a heavier flywheel the BigBaler 1290 Plus has been a complete game changer to Rob’s contracting business. He has been able to gain a heavier bale and achieve a significant gain in the number of bales per hour he can form. Electronic Bale Length is standard on the “Plus” and gives the ability to command a bale length easily from the ISOBus monitor. Tandem Axle with Flotation tyres make for an excellent in field ride which helps the pick-up remain at a more consistent height reducing soil contamination. The Belle-Vue Trading service team installed the proven Gazeeka 870 moisture meter onto Rob’s baler. Gazeeka use microwave technology to monitor moisture through the entire bale and accuracy can be expected to be better than 1% on cured hay. The Gazeeka 870 also incorporates a paint system to mark high moisture bales to protect your investment. New Holland Twine has also become a very big seller throughout the country. Belle-Vue Trading are continually supplying our customers with bulk twine orders due to the excellent strength, quality & affordability. We really appreciate Rob Prince’s feedback and look forward to supporting him with his operation into the future. 8
