News PILE DRIVER Replacing pine posts with trellises and end strainers with steel has proven to be a time and cost saver for one Victorian winery

Kicking goals For Andrew Peace Wines, located in Victoria’s Mallee region, the need to regularly replace the necessary pine posts in its vineyard, plus the difficulty associated with physically removing them, led to it looking for an alternative solution. The answer was in steel – and a pioneering project that involved Trimble GPS technology and a Vermeer PD10 solar pile driver taking on an Australian-first use. Using the Trimble GPS technology, the vineyard was mapped out without the need for a surveyor and, crucially, the Vermeer pile driver has been customised to work with the GPS system. The winery’s viticulture grower liaison Rod Duffy says the new combination of equipment and technology will reduce the total installation time for all the posts from 100 days to 70. “Previously, we’d work with a consultant to build a farm map to give us an idea on where to place the posts and the topography of the field and would then pass that to the surveyor for them to map out the best spot for the posts to be placed,” he says. “It would need a team of about 10 people to help put the pine posts in over the course of around 100 days. “Now, with the Trimble technology, we place the farm map into their program and it tells us where the posts should go. “Then, the Vermeer PD10 uses that data to place in the steel posts and we only need two labourers to help with the install.

A project combining Trimble GPS technology with a Vermeer PD10 solar pile driver has reduced post replacement time at a winery from 100 to 70 days “The GPS technology with the steel posts is going to be a real time and cost saver for us.” Duffy also says the winery lost about 12,000 posts last year due to bad weather and spent about $250,000 per year on replacing broken posts, even without factoring in disposal costs for treated pine.

Kevin Gilbert from Vermeer Australia says this is the first time a PD10 has been used for this type of job in Australia. “This is a big opportunity for the viticulture industry to see what the PD10 is capable of, and that it isn’t just suited for solar panels and posts, but Vermeer Australia can manufacture guides for any type of post,” he says. “Plus, the PD10 has been customised to work with GPS systems, which will save a whole lot of time, money, and effort when it comes to installing trellises each year for vineyard operators.”

John Deere says its purchase of Bear Flag Robotics will help boost its development of autonomous machinery

ACQUISITION Deere says its autonomous farm machinery ambitions will get a boost with the acquisition of the Silicon Valley tech company

Bearings secured John Deere has bought US-based Bear Flag Robotics for US$250 million (A$350.1 million) in a move it says will accelerate its development of autonomous farm technology. Deere says the acquisition will let it further develop its autonomous agriculture technologies while also supporting the prosperity of the global farming sector. Bear Flag Robotics, a Silicon Valley start-up founded in 2017, has developed autonomous driving technology that is compatible with existing machines, something which John Deere chief technology officer Jahmy Hindman says will be beneficial for Deere’s strategy. “Deere views autonomy as an important step forward in enabling farmers to leverage their resources strategically to

feed the world and create more sustainable and profitable operations,” says Hindman. “Bear Flag’s team of talented agriculture professionals, engineers and technologists have a proven ability to deliver advanced technology solutions to market. “Joining that expertise and experience with Deere’s expertise in autonomy, along with our world-class dealer channel, will accelerate the delivery of solutions to farmers that address the immense challenge of feeding a growing world.” Bear Flag Robotics boasts a team consisting of agriculture professionals, engineers and technologists, with expertise ranging across areas such as autonomy,

sensor fusion, vision, data, software and hardware. Following the acquisition, Bear Flag will continue to work in Silicon Valley while working with John Deere in order to hasten autonomy and innovation of ag machinery. Bear Flag Robotics chief executive Igino Cafiero says the organisation – which specialises in food production – will benefit from the deal. “One of the biggest challenges farmers face today is the availability of skilled labour to execute time-sensitive operations that impact farming outcomes. Autonomy offers a safe and productive alternative to address that challenge head on,” says Cafiero. “Bear Flag’s mission to increase global food production and reduce the cost of growing food through machine automation is aligned with Deere’s and we’re excited to join the Deere team to bring autonomy to more farms.” John Deere and Bear Flags Robotics first partnered in 2019 as part of the former’s Start-up Collaborator program – a year-long partnership that saw both parties test innovative technologies with dealers and customers, without any formal business relationship in place. Through the program, Deere aims to enhance and deepen its interaction with companies while the start-ups also gain affiliation with the agricultural manufacturer.

The Weedetect system can be fitted to Goldacres’ G6 Crop Cruiser sprayers

WEEDS Goldacres’ weed detection system is ready for rollout after years of painstaking research

Data in place Nearly two years of behind-the-scenes work has paid off for Victorian sprayer manufacturer Goldacres, with its weed detection system Weedetect evolving to a point where it can be rolled out successfully. Designed for targeted weed spraying, the time-consuming work has been in building a database of weeds for the system to recognise and ultimately eliminate. Goldacres’ sales and marketing operations manager Stephen Richards says Weedetect has the potential to allow ‘green on green’ spraying rather than just the traditional ‘green on brown’, which will allow the system to be used year-round. “Traditional weed detecting cameras pick up chlorophyll, the green colour in plants, whereas you can’t run that system in crops because it would just pick up and spray everything that is green,” he says. “This system is different – it’s an actual video camera that is feeding information back to the system about what is a weed that needs to be sprayed. “It’s got the potential to do green-on-green spraying because it learns the algorithms and it has a heap of different images in its learning logic and says ‘this is what I need to spray’. “You can spray green-on-brown and then later in the season spray green-on-green and the potential chemical saving with this system is just massive.”

ACQUISITION ‘Business as usual’ will continue across Cervus’s seven Victorian John Deere dealerships, the company’s Australian arm says

At your service Canadian equipment supplier Cervus Equipment, which has seven dealerships across Victoria, is the subject of a takeover offer by fellow Canadian company Brandt. Cervus has seven dealerships across Victoria: in Hamilton, Colac, Sunshine, Ballarat, Leongatha, Terang and Maffra. Aside from John Deere, they also distribute Kuhn, Hustler, Bogballe, Goldacres and Wacker Neuson-branded products. Offering US$19.50 (A$26.80) per share in cash, it is estimated the total sum of the acquisition will be US$302 million (A$415 million) – excluding the Cervus shares Brandt already owns. This represents a 37 per cent premium to the 20-day volume-weighted average share price. The arrangement agreement between the two suppliers is set to create one of the largest privately-held dealership groups in the world while also enhancing Cervus’ ability to execute on its strategy of delivering best-in-class equipment to its customers. Entering into the arrangement agreement with Brandt was

Weedetect is available as an option on Goldacres’ G6 Crop Cruiser and G8 Super Cruiser sprayers. It involves 12 video cameras being positioned three metres apart, with 10 on the boom and one on either side of the front of the chassis. These cameras are constantly looking 4m ahead, and an angled LED light can be fitted below each camera to allow for spraying at night or in poor light. Richards says the development of Weedetect has been an ongoing process, with data having been acquired for between eight and 10 hours per day throughout the 10 weeks of the main crop cycle. “The idea behind it works really well but it has to learn all these algorithms and to get enough information into the system to make it all work, you have to go through a whole life cycle of a crop and the weeds in the crop and get photos from every different angle,” he says. “Different states and different countries have different weeds so we’ve had to teach the system about weeds grown in each area. “It just takes time to get all the data to make the system accurate because you’ve really only got the growing season to do it.” Rather than a glitzy launch ‘moment’, Goldacres is taking the slow and steady approach to the release of Weedetect. “We don’t want to put a system out that a customer gets and is having trouble and they can’t get their dealer to support it,” says Richards. “We want the customer to be looked after so we’ve got to make sure the dealer is trained before they can sell it. “It’s probably a different approach but we are very adamant that we want to make sure the customers are supported properly so we want to make sure the dealers are properly trained.” Enquiries can be made to Goldacres, and G6 and G8 sprayers are now available with Weedetect factory-fitted. Future weeds added to the database will be available for existing users through software updates.

based on the unanimous recommendations from the Cervus board of directors following an extensive review into the company, which analysed what would be in the best interests of Cervus and its shareholders. The review recommended the transaction represented ‘compelling value’ to Cervus shareholders. The deal also provided certainty of value and liquidity in that the transaction does not contain a financing condition and the consideration will be paid in cash. Support from major original equipment manufacturers, such as John Deere Canada, has also been garnered while the CIBC Capital Markets has also provided a fairness opinion on the transaction, suggesting the agreement is ‘fair, from a financial point of view’. Cervus chief executive and president Angela Lekatsas says the agreement will be beneficial for all involved. “This transaction delivers tremendous value for our shareholders and clearly demonstrates the successful execution of our strategy,” says Lekatsas. “As a private company with a committed, well-capitalised and long-term owner, Cervus will be better positioned for the next stage of evolutionary growth for our dealerships. “The size and scale of the entity created by the combination of our two companies will allow for increased investment into Cervus for the benefit of our employees and customers.” Like many arranged agreements, the transaction will be subject to shareholder approval whereby a two-third majority of all votes cast at a shareholder meeting must be in favour of the transaction. The shareholder meeting is expected to take place in October this year and, if successful, the transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021. Cervus is a leading agriculture and transportation equipment provider across Canada, Australia and New Zealand and is the authorised representative for major brands including John Deere, Doosan and Clark. A spokesperson from Cervus Australia indicated that it is just ‘business as usual’ until the shareholder approval meeting has been announced and the results are finalised.

A key upgrade on the Lemken Azurit 10 is the addition of the MicroHub 5 microgranule spreader unit

DRILL A new spreader unit, different row options and a furrow former have been incorporated in Lemken’s newest precision speed drill

Drill options Arable farming specialist Lemken has released its latest precision speed drill – the Azurit 10 – which comes with new row variants and additional sowing capability. The new Azurit 10 will be able to drill soybeans and sunflower seeds, in addition to the range of crops prior models were able to sow. New rows are also a feature of the Azurit 10, which is now available with six- or 12-row spacings of 50cm as well as the proven four-, six- and eight-row variants with spacings of 70–80cm. Among the many new upgrades made by Lemken on the Azurit 10 is the addition of the MicroHub 5; a spreader unit that allows microgranules to be applied in the direct vicinity of seeds. Microgranules contain water-soluble nutrients that are rapidly available to plants, meaning the MicroHub 5 fosters excellent juvenile crop development, which Lemken says will be particularly important in cold, dry spring seasons. Lemken head of design for precision seed drill technology Bernd Valtwies says the MicroHub 5 helps ensure fertiliser is distributed more efficiently, following increased public interest in the matter. “We offer this option for our Azurit with up to eight rows,” he says. “This unit is not only available for new machines. Depending on the year of manufacture of previous Azurit 9 machines, matching retrofit kits will be available. The system is controlled via the Azurit on-board terminal. The MicroHub holds 200 litres of fertiliser, which can currently be applied at rates ranging from one to 40kg per hectare. “The metering unit is operated electrically and granules are pneumatically delivered to the seed furrow. This is the ultimate in precision.” Lemken says the initial nutrient requirements of the crops can be easily covered by even a small amount of microgranules. To improve the quality of seed placement, a furrow former has been added to the seeding coulters while an updated drill pipe has also been installed and features an inlet that can be replaced once worn. The Azurit 10 also offers automatic seed singling for maize, which is done through a system that monitors and adjusts the quality of single seeding. This automatic seed singling system can be retrofitted on older Lemken machines.

The New Holland T7 Heavy Duty tractor has a redesigned cabin and comes with a Precision Land Management system

The redesigned New Holland T7 Heavy Duty tractor boasts new precision tech and a brand new cabin

The CentreView display is placed in the centre of the steering wheel, which New Holland says is an industry first

New horizons Set to be released Down Under in 2022, New Holland says its new flagship T7 Heavy Duty (HD) tractor is ideal for multi-purpose use – in the paddock and for other transport applications. Part of the 14-strong T7 range, the new HD model features New Holland’s next-gen Precision Land Management (PLM) intelligence system and a redesigned cabin that spokesperson Sean Lennon says helps deliver everything customers demanded. “We designed the brand-new Horizon Ultra cab to give them the best working experience with all the space, comfort, quality finish they asked for and the quietest cab on the market,” he says. “On top of this, the next-generation PLM Intelligence will make it easier for them to access our intelligent farming solutions which deliver substantial added value in terms of better decision making and accurate execution, boosting their efficiency and profitability.” Only two per cent of the parts in the Horizon Ultra cab have

been carried over from the previous T7 HD tractor, with the new cabin built longer and with more floor space for the operator and a passenger. Up to 30 litres of storage space has been added, plus a 12-litre cooled compartment, with a better climate control system, comfortable seating and new connectivity points including USB and Bluetooth. Visibility has also been improved through the redesign to the front and down to the rear hitch in addition to the 24 LED lights packaged around the tractor to provide increased visibility at night. New Holland agriculture brand president Carlo Lambro says the tractor’s new technologies mark a shift to a future built around interconnectivity and precision agriculture. “Servitisation and digitalisation are the gates to the future. They have made possible to integrate the physical presence at the wheel with an array of digital services that mean we can always be at our customer’s side, helping them to get the job done,” he says.

Customers will be able to register their New Holland machines using the MyNewHolland app, where the MyPLMConnect portal can help manage their fleet and farm data all in one location. MyPLMConnect can display dynamic information in real time from individual machines at work in the field to help operators make better decisions. The electronic architecture will be adopted across all the brand’s next-gen equipment. These technologies use the 10.4 inch (26.4cm) Intelliview display as well as what New Holland hails as an industryfirst, the CentreView display, which has been placed in the centre of the steering wheel to provide operators relevant information and data. Ergonomic customisable controls are located on the new armrest. New Holland is also set to introduce a new PLM Cygnus receiver, which helps to provide more accurate data on things such as vehicle position, considering terrain variations and helps acquire guidance lines quickly. New Holland dealers can also use the technology to perform remote diagnostics on machines using the New Holland Remote Assist tool. The New Holland Agriculture team is looking forward to releasing this product to the Australian and New Zealand market in 2022.

News John Deere has launched two new cotton harvesters to the Australian market, a CP770 cotton picker and CS770 stripper

The John Deere X9 1100 holds up to 16,200L

COTTON HARVESTERS With an updated precision offering and a new module handling system, John Deere says its new CP770 cotton picker and CS770 stripper are the most productive harvesters it has ever built

Rich selection Deere’s Australia and New Zealand production system manager Ben Kelly says that John Deere’s new cotton harvesters were built with the Australian producer in mind. “The CP770 cotton picker and CS770 stripper machines will increase productivity during harvest, while, at the same time, giving farmers and contractors simple, easy-to-use and impactful access to their farm and equipment data,” he says. “The size of the new round module builders on the picker and stripper make it possible to harvest more hectares per hour, as the module size has grown by more than five centimetres in diameter, to equate to a two per cent productivity gain per bale.” In addition to these changes, the new models both use John Deere’s bolstered 13.6-litre PowerTech engine, which it says increases fuel efficiency by 20 per cent for the CP770 and up to 15 per cent for the CS770 in the Tier 4 range. Both harvesters include a new module handling system and the CS770 now features the largest header size available, at 12 rows. The harvesters also come equipped with Deere’s Generation 4 display – connecting to Deere’s JDLink system to collect and collate agronomic and machine data through the John Deere Operations Center to help ensure harvest runs smoothly. Kelly says as traceability becomes more important to the cotton industry, the technology delivered by the CP770 and CS770 dovetails into John Deere’s Harvest ID (HID) technology, which uses the radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader to read module serial numbers embedded on the module wrap. “Ultimately, this technology means there is improved reporting and seamless access to data related to cotton bales that can be shared to stakeholders right across the supply chain,” he says. Driver comfort has not been forgotten in the upgrades, with both harvesters having a new cab configuration designed to ensure operators have a smooth ride during harvest. “The cab is noticeably larger, quieter and more comfortable, and provides operators with incredible visibility as more cameras, mirrors and lighting have been added,” says Kelly. “The Australian cotton industry is extremely important to us, hence our multi-year investment in testing our cotton equipment in the country’s unique production conditions to ensure we deliver the power, efficiency and durability needed. “We see the launch of the CP770 and CS770 as a continued demonstration of our long-term commitment to the Australian cotton industry and a reflection of our confidence in the strength of the sector,” he adds.

HARVESTERS The first demonstration models of John Deere’s X Series combine harvesters have arrived in Australia, with the order book now open for next year

Marking the spot John Deere has confirmed that three demonstration models of its X Series combine harvesters have arrived Down Under, dubbing them the most powerful harvesting solution on the market. John Deere Australia and New Zealand production systems manager Ben Kelly says the models will help customers understand what the X Series – the successor to Deere’s popular S Series – will mean for their businesses. “Growers are expecting the X Series to be the next iteration of our proven S Series in terms of performance, but this machine will deliver a significant step-up in harvest capacity,” he says. Among the features of the X Series is a new dual separator with a wide feeder house that provides growers with the largest threshing and separation capacity John Deere has ever offered. A seven square metre Dyno-Flo XL cleaning shoe also delivers 36 per cent more cleaning area than the largest S Series model – the S790. Deere says the smallest X Series model combine, the X9 1000, is able to do this with only one per cent more horsepower than the S790. “What makes this harvest capacity even more impressive is that it is achieved with higher fuel efficiency thanks to our award-winning drivetrain design – and with minimal grain lost, which means more money in growers’ pockets,” says Kelly. Deere says the X Series will give growers extra harvesting times in the morning and night, even when straw is damp or when moisture levels increase. The X Series connects to the cloud-based John Deere Operations Center where growers can share machine data or operational information. Also available with the X Series is Deere’s Combine Advisor suite of technologies, currently available on the S Series, which uses ActiveVision

camera technology to automatically shift the combine harvester’s settings as harvesting conditions change to improve productivity. John Deere has also announced the availability of four new next-gen platforms on both the X and S Series harvesters, including the hinged draper series, rigid draper series, belt pickup and corn heads. The new platforms include the widest ever front at 15.2m, to support higher harvesting capacity so growers can cover more area while minimising grain loss across several different crops and conditions. “The star of these platforms is the hinged draper with rigid cutterbar [HDR]. For customers who need to harvest in a variety of terrain, the industryleading HDR platform offers the versatility to harvest as a rigid off-ground platform or an onground terrain-following platform,” says Kelly. Grain saver draper belts are optional on the X Series, but help growers reduce canola cutterbar loss by up to 25 per cent in comparison to traditional draper belts. The two models of the X Series – the X9 1000 and X9 1100 – are available on either wheels or tracks. The X9 1000 grain tank can hold up to 14,800L, while the X9 1100 holds up to 16,200L – five per cent and 15 per cent more than the S790 respectively. Folding unloading augers with adjustable spout are available for the X Series in 7.9m, 8.7m or 9.4m lengths. Orders are now open for growers to secure John Deere harvesting machinery for the 2022–23 harvest.

News TRACTOR With front wheels and rear tracks, the new Claas Axion 900 series tractors are designed to minimise soil compaction and provide comfort, efficiency and fuel economy

Tread softly Claas has launched what it describes as “the world’s first fully suspended half-track tractor” to the Australian market. The Axion 900 series has two models with Claas’ Terra Trac concept – the 930 and 960 – which combines the benefits of wheeled and track tractors by offering front wheels and rear tracks. The 960 Terra Trac is the star attraction in Claas’ new range, boasting 445hp (327kW), 1,860Nm of torque at only 1,400rpm and an 860-litre fuel tank to ensure it can comfortably run for a 12-hour shift in the paddock. Claas’ 930 Terra Trac also offers the 860-litre fuel tank – and both have the same overall size of 6.25m length, 2.23m height and a 2.95m wheelbase – however the 930 is a 350hp (237kW) model with 1,695Nm of torque at 1,400rpm. Both are fitted with Stage 5, 8.7L FPT engines, have ZF continuously variable transmission, speed ranges of between 0.05km/h and 45km/h and are available with belt widths of 635mm and 735mm, with a 457mm option planned for next year. Other features include an 11-tonne rear linkage lift capacity, hydraulic trailer brakes and optional pneumatic air brakes plus a 30cm terminal in the cabin with ISOBUS compatibility. Claas’ country sales manager Julian Kollmeyer

Claas says that its Axion 900s are the world’s first fully suspended half-track tractors

says that the Terra Trac system aims to minimise soil compaction and said it had been a complex design process for the company. “Having a tractor and having a Terra Trac system that was initially designed for a combine – it’s not just plug and play,” he explains. “We had to make dedicated engineering on the track itself to transfer the power, to transfer the torque and also to cope with the different load spectrums that are certainly different from a combine.We had to change the rear axle on the tractor to make it suitable for the track unit and also by having the big tyres removed from the

tractor we were able to fit a bigger fuel tank. “With the track unit that we have on the tractor, we actually have a bigger footprint of around 35 per cent than what you know from a usual tyre. “Also what makes a difference for a half-track in comparison to a full-track tractor is that we have a pivoting point of the track unit and we have a very even load distribution across the whole track, even in hilly conditions.” The first Axion 900 tractors available for customer purchase in Australia are currently in transit and will be available through Claas dealers.

The Jumbo’s unloading performance has been increased

Pöttinger’s new Jumbo 7000 loader wagon comes with a host of innovations for improved harvesting efficiency

Two steps ahead Pöttinger says that all of the core components of its new Jumbo 7000 loader wagon have been redesigned and engineered for tractors outputting up to 500 horsepower (373kW). To keep forage clean, the seven-row controlled floating pick-up with a working width of 2,300mm ensures maximum performance for tidy and lossfree collection in a single pass, says Pöttinger. The pick-up’s new hydraulically adjustable drive system adapts the speed automatically to the driving speed, to create less of a dragging effect, which improves the chopping quality. The jockey wheel steering system can be engaged to enable even better ground tracking. The pick-up position control, which is supplied as standard, keeps the cross-section of the opening between pick-up and drawbar constant to ensure maximum throughput during the entire loading process. The tines, which are controlled in a sweeping arc by the cam track, convey the crop gently upwards and actively transfer it to the rotor at a suitable speed. Instead of dragging the forage through, this helps improve chopping quality. The tines then dip down at a right angle to prevent the forage from being drawn in. The Powercut short-length chopping system has an asymmetric array of 48 knives and a theoretical chopped length of 34mm. The long arc of the knives delivers a slicing cut along the full length of the blade. The knife bank release system – handled without the need for tools – and the central knife release system are operated conveniently using a control panel to the side. The knives are also sharpened on the wagon via the Autocut system. A new unloading beater driveline delivers 210kW and unloading capacity has been increased by another third so unloading takes just one minute. Three predefined modes can be selected for loading, ranging from light loading to medium compression to high compaction. The scraper floor has been lowered at the front by 250mm to reduce the power required during loading. This also increases the net payload due to higher compaction.

The pick-up delivers clean and tidy collection without losses

TELEHANDLER Manitou Group is expanding its NewAg XL telehandler range with the high-performance MLT 961-160 V+L model for intensive applications

Weight lifter Manitou Group’s latest telehandler can handle loads of up to six tonnes, with a lifting height of 9m. Intended for large farms, cooperatives, agro-industry and waste disposal sites, the MLT 961-160 V+L will be available in Australia with a Stage IIIA engine. This produces 156 horsepower (418kW), delivering 805Nm of torque at 1,350 rpm and a hydraulic flow of 200 litres per minute. A new 4,500 litre bucket, which has been specifically designed and approved for the new MLT 961-160 V+ L, has a width of 2.7m, which is wider than the machine. This allows users to avoid driving over the material while increasing work output, says Manitou Group. The CVT M-Vario Plus transmission offers the user the choice of two modes with a maximum speed of 40km/h. Comfort mode provides a smooth ride for more precision and dynamic mode generates faster acceleration for greater productivity. The drawbar pull has also improved, increased by more than 30 per cent compared with the previous MLT 961 version. “The new engine delivers 10 per cent more power than the previous version and a torque increase of 50 per cent,” says Manitou Group product manager Arnaud Sochas. “Combined with the high-capacity 4,500-litre bucket, this comprehensive machine/attachment solution ensures a very high work output in the most intensive loading and recovery applications.” To achieve even greater gains, the HighView camera option, fitted to the boom head, allows the operator to see inside the trailer to optimise filling operations. The cabin reduces noise levels to just 69 dbA, for a quiet operator environment. Safety features include lighting under the door, which improves visibility on the Easy-Step when getting in and out of the driver’s cabin, and the cabin has been repositioned higher up for an optimal view. Available optionally or as standard on the Platinum finish, a new adaptive air suspension



V The MLT 961-160 V+L model is the latest addition to the Manitou Group’s NewAg XL range of telehandlers

seat with heating and electric lumbar adjustment reduces vibrations by more than 50 per cent, says the company. To further reduce fatigue, the JSM Autopower function allows the operator to control the engine speed directly with the joystick without using the accelerator pedal or the manual accelerator. Specific storage spaces are provided, including a tool box fitted under the cabin for easier access. Dealer can carry out diagnostics remotely, so users benefit from improved service and have better control over the costs related to the use of their machine. In addition, Manitou Group offers a comprehensive range of services associated with this model, including a maintenance contract on all parts or even a warranty extension of up to six years or 6,000 hours. Maintenance is simplified with a rapid-opening cleaning hatch in front of the radiator. To reduce maintenance costs, an integrated air pre-filter is positioned on the engine hood and hydraulic oil change intervals are now 2,000 hours. Options such as Ecostop (configurable automatic engine stop) and the centralised automatic greasing system are also available. The MLT 961 NewAg XL model is available in four levels of finish: Classic, Premium, Elite and Platinum.

News ATVs New safety standards for all-terrain vehicles were met by five out of every six sellers, the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission says

Up to standard Market surveillance conducted by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) has revealed 84 per cent of the quad bikes sold in Australia complied with recently introduced safety standards when sold. The ACCC joined state-based consumer law regulators to detemine whether both manufacturers and dealers of ATVs met the Stage 1 Safety Standards that came into effect in October last year. Those standards stipulate that all new and imported second hand quad bikes in Australia must carry rollover warning labels, as well as being tested for lateral static stability and be sold with a hang tag attached that shows the angle at which the quad bike will tip onto two wheels. Rollover safety information must also be included in the owner’s manual. These measures were introduced to improve the safety of the vehicles, which were the leading cause of death and serious injuries on Australian farms. Across the past decade, 163 people have died in quad bike-related incidents, including three which have occurred in 2021. ACCC deputy chair Mick Keogh says suppliers cooperated with the investigations and added that the clear majority of dealers were complying with the new standards. “Although 16 per cent of quad bikes inspected,

or roughly one in six, were not compliant with the safety standard, suppliers have so far cooperated with our investigations and taken steps to fix problems, including recalling non-compliant bikes where necessary,” says Keogh. Among those was Suzuki, which the ACCC said formally recalled 490 quad bikes in March after finding they were not fitted with the required labels and reflectors. “Enforcing the quad bike safety standard is an ACCC priority this year and all quad bike suppliers should be aware that we will be keeping a very close eye on their compliance,” adds Keogh. Stage 2 of the Safety Standard on quad bikes will come into effect on October 11 this year, which will require all new and second hand imported general use quad bikes sold in the country be fitted with operator protection devices (OPDs) and meet the minimum stability requirements. OPDs must be either fitted into the bike or integrated into the bike’s design while also meeting lateral stability minimum tilt table ratio (TTR) of 0.55 and a

front and rear longitudinal pitch stability TTR of 0.8. Keogh says the implementation of Stage 2 standards in October is pivotal for improving farm safety. “The second stage requirements are absolutely critical for improving the safety of quad bikes and saving lives,” says Keogh. “Suppliers have had plenty of time to make sure that all new quad bikes for sale meet all requirements of the Safety Standard. “We will be conducting national surveillance again this year and cracking down on anyone supplying non-compliant quad bikes.” Following the new announcement of the safety regulations last year, major manufacturers Polaris, Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki all announced their intention to withdraw from the Australian ATV market. Segway, CFMoto and Kymco are among the companies that have committed to meeting the new regulations and will continue selling compliant ATVs in Australia.

Agile powerhouse With new features to make turns smoother and towing implements easier, the new Fendt 900 and 1100 Vario MT track tractor range is ideal for the heaviest jobs Two new high horsepower tractor models have joined Fendt’s product lineup in Australia and New Zealand, with the Fendt 900 Vario MT and 1100 Vario MT track tractors now available nation-wide. With a host of new features designed to enhance both comfort and performance, the tractors are built to handle big crop production jobs, including medium-to-heavy high-speed tillage, as well as the largest planters and seeding implements. “There’s nothing we haven’t thought of in creating the new Fendt Vario MT track tractors,” says Fendt product manager Tyron Midgley. “For flotation, ride comfort, fuel efficiency, implement operation, power and reliability, these new track tractors will definitely stand out as a great choice for the heaviest jobs. “We’ve added some totally new, Fendt-exclusive innovations, such as a steerable three-point hitch system and a hydraulically controlled swinging drawbar option that make headland turns with large implements smoother for the operator, less demanding on the tractor and gentler on the soil.”

closer to the front of the tractor and giving them a suspended undercarriage and a longer wheel base for better weight and power distribution. Equipped with a category 5 free swinging drawbar with a 4,990kg load rating as standard, the 1100 Vario MT series also offers the choice of a hydraulically controlled 6,800kg load-rated drawbar and hydraulically controlled three-point hitch. Fendt says both hitches make it easier for the operator to make headland turns while towing large implements – with the drawbar providing 28 degrees of swing left and right, which allows the tractor to turn closer to its natural turning point under load.

A The steerable hitch system provides 12 degrees of movement in the hitch and 11.5 degrees of swing, with the drawbar allowing the tractor to steer easily around contours and field obstacles without raising the implement. This hitch uses two steering cylinders to keep the drawbar in a fixed position or allow it to float with restriction. It is controlled from the tractor cab and integrated with the tractor steering for smooth turns with large implements. Smart Ride Plus load levelling, a Fendt-exclusive option, integrates with the front suspension springs to adjust tractor height and also keep it level when operating heavy attachments.


Fendt 1100 Vario MT There are four different versions of the 1100 Vario MT, with the biggest being the Fendt 1167 Vario MT, equipped with a six-cylinder, 16.2L diesel engine making 673hp (502kW) and which Fendt claims is the highest horsepower track tractor available on the market. The three other models, the 1151 (511hp [381kW]), 1156 (564hp [421kW]) and 1162 (618hp [461kW]), are powered by MAN six-cylinder, 15.2L diesel engines – with all four models offering a CVT transmission and Fendt’s iD low-rev engine concept and tractor management system for fuel efficiency. Designed for the biggest jobs, the 1100 Vario MT tractors have been given plenty of attention in terms of suspension and hitch systems. The tractors are designed using Agco’s patented Mobil-Trac track system, placing the hardbar

Front weights improve machine balance and headland quality

B The tractors also have two-point cab suspension with integrated rear shock absorbers and two more shock absorbers with rubber bumpers on the front for additional rider comfort. Inside the cabin, the tractors have a single spoke steering wheel, implement controls and a joystick within the armrest and a 10.4 inch (26cm) Varioterminal screen. Operators can easily manage all tractor settings and adjustments through the Varioterminal, as well as monitoring implements and managing camera functions field documentation and variable rate applications. There is also a dual pump, dual circuit hydraulic system for up to 440 litres per minute of hydraulic oil flow and separate hydraulic oil reservoirs for implement and vehicle hydraulic systems. The new Fendt 1100 Vario MT tractors are designed with front and chassis options for ballasting. Front weights improve machine balance and headland quality, and provide correct belt-toground contact for the idler driver. Options include 20 or 36 suitcase weights providing up to 915kg and 1,650kg, respectively, or the 2,000kg mono block. Chassis ballasting on the undercarriage places weight near the machine’s centre of gravity, using a combination of idler, frame and rear-drive wheel weights. Weight is applied directly to the ground without putting stress on the chassis, axles or final drives to improve drawbar pull capacity. Fendt Vario 900 MT Like their larger siblings, the models in Fendt’s 900 Vario MT tractor range are designed for optimum efficiency and can run at a lower engine rpm to reduce fuel costs. The range boasts three models, the 938 Vario MT that has a 380hp (279kW) engine, the 940 Vario with a 405hp (298kW) engine and the 943 Vario with a 431hp (317kW) engine.


A The 1167 Vario MT is the largest of the new series

C New innovations include a steerable three-point hitch system and a hydraulically controlled swinging drawbar option

D An LED light package adds more lights at the rear of the tractor

Each of the tractors have a dual pump and dual circuit hydraulic system, with energy-efficient flatface hydraulic couplers available as an option. The tractors are equipped with a standard Category 3/4N three-point hitch and a two-speed 1000 and 1000E power take-off shaft. The tractors offer standard wide-gauge settings of 72 to 120 inches (183 to 305cm) and three track styles in four widths from 18 to 30 inches (46 to 76cm). The 900s also have the Mobil-trac system and have a steel hardbar that acts as a front axle, attaching to the forward point of the roller frame and providing up to 11 degrees of oscillation, to improve ride and minimise compaction. All systems can be controlled through the same 26cm Varioterminal operating system as appears in the 1100 Vario MT tractors, which are also compatible with ISOBUS. Midgley says people operating the 900 Vario MT tractors notice a different level of ride comfort when travelling over terraces and rough field surfaces,

helped in part by in-cab amenities including an airride seat and larger instructor’s seat. “The Smart Ride system combines oscillating midwheels, hardbar suspension, cab suspension and seat suspension, giving operators great ride quality without sacrificing the in-field benefits of power, control and traction,” he says. “The tractors also handle well at the maximum road speed of 40km/h, and ride comfort on the road is noticeably better than other track tractors,” he adds. In addition to these features, an LED light package adds more lights at the rear of the tractor, positioned to provide a clear view of each end of a 24-row planter during late nights in the field. Porch lighting on the cab provides a safe view of the area for operators leaving the field after a long day, and the battery smart-disconnect automatically powers everything down for the night. The 900 Vario MT also has an integrated walkaround platform that provides secure, fast access for cleaning windows.

News In an effort to help NSW farmers battling the mouse plague, rebates are being offered for zinc phosphide baits

DATA Zinc phosphide rebates on offer in NSW as threats of a nation-wide mouse plague loom

Re-bait Primary producers affected by the ongoing mouse plague in New South Wales are eligible for rebates on zinc phosphide baits. Under the scheme, the government will provide a 50 per cent rebate for the purchase costs of zinc phosphide up to a value of $10,000. To be eligible, primary producers must have purchased the baits between January 1 and December 17 this year to aid in the efforts to control the plague. Recipients must also have demonstrated financial hardship as a result of compounding financial strains, including the plague, bushfires, floods and the pandemic. Applicants must live in one of the eligible local government areas, have a total business income from primary production of at least $20,000 and must not have gross off-farm assets exceeding $5 million. Applications for the rebate can be submitted as a single claim and can be made online via the NSW Rural Assistance Authority (RAA) prior to December 17. NSW agriculture minister Adam Marshall urged farmers to take up the rebate offer, saying the government had worked with NSW Farmers to ensure the eligibility requirements are fit for purpose. “Zinc phosphide is the best tool we have in managing the mice plague in crops, so this rebate will go a long way to support our growers, covering some of those costs,” he says. “I urge farmers to start monitoring mice numbers on their farms right now and start planning how they will manage the impacts as the population increases as we approach harvest.” NSW Farmers vice president Xavier Martin echoed the statement. “NSW Farmers have advocated tirelessly for this financial support since February and, along with the CWA of NSW, pursued a shared responsibility in combatting this plague, resulting in $150 million worth of mouse plague support packages announced by the NSW government,” he says. “We do continue to call on the reallocation of funds not used for the defunct bromadiolone baiting scheme to be put into Mouse Bait Rebate Package. The mouse plague of 2021 is clearly not over and farmers will need all the support they can get.” The news comes as an August update released by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Grains Research and Development Corporation showed that mouse numbers were “moderate to high in many regions of WA, NSW, Victoria and Queensland”. “[A] moderate or high number of mice is a serious concern for this time of year. Urgent action is required to minimise damage and losses.” The update says farmers should consider zinc phosphide baiting before seed set if mouse damage is evident to maturing crops – as the animals are more reluctant to go for baits once seeds have developed. “Talk to bait suppliers and ask for 50g ZnP/kg bait to ensure best chance of success. Be aware there are significant lead times in some locations so talk to your supplier.” Farmers are also urged to actively monitor mouse activity by using mouse chew cards or taking a walk through crops. You can also report and map mouse activity through Mouse Alert – find out more at www.

COTTON Steady prices and good seasonal conditions paint a rosy picture for Australia’s cotton industry in the year ahead

Thread count Australia is on track to produce its largest cotton crops on record next year, according to agribusiness banking specialist Rabobank. The industry analysts suggest excellent seasonal conditions and strong prices have continued to fuel the positive outlook for the cotton sector, with early predictors looking favourably on the year ahead. Already, early planted-area forecasts predict a substantial increase for cotton in 2021–22, with estimates of an increase anywhere from 49 per cent to in excess of 80 per cent year-on-year. Senior commodity analyst Cheryl Kalisch Gordon says the early signs are promising. “The high end of these forecasts would bring planted hectares near the fourth-largest on record – a welcome second year of improvement after 2019–20 the second-lowest planted area in 40 years,” says Kalisch Gordon. “So, a good-looking position for Australia to come back and we think around 4.5 million bales is a reasonable expectation for next year. “[The] real challenge might be getting cotton planted in wet conditions and then ensuring the sun shines over the growing season.” Rabobank also says it’s not just the forecast that appears favourable for the cotton sector, but the

Australia is on track to produce one of its largest cotton crops ever due to favourable weather and strong prices

steadiness of the already strengthened prices. In Australia, cotton prices have lifted six per cent during July, reaching as high as A$600/tonne – the first time the crop had done so since the COVID-19 pandemic reached Australia. “ICE#2’s consolidation above USc 85/lb and the AUD tracking mostly sideways at the lower range in June were key to this lift, and we expect these two factors to remain in play for the second half of this year,” says Kalisch Gordon. While these prices are likely to contract as more US cotton becomes available in late 2021, Rabobank forecasts they will remain 10 per cent above the five-yearly average of USc 80/lb. “Our expectation that the AUD will trade in the range of USc 73 to USc 74 in Q1 through to Q3 2022 supports Australian cash prices trading around A$580/bale in 2022,” says Kalisch Gordon. Other factors believed to be contributing to Australia’s favourable cotton forecast include the above-average soil moisture prevalent in much of New South Wales’ cotton-growing regions. Improved water storage capacity in the Murray Darling Basin, which is now above 70 per cent and continues to increase daily, is also said to be a factor and will likely lead to expanded irrigated cotton programs. Forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology have also indicated a 70 per cent change of above-average rainfall in cotton-growing regions between August and November.

News Australian National Field Days 2021 is one of a number of cancelled events

EVENT Three more field days have been forced to cancel their 2021 events following the recent coronavirus outbreaks across Australia

Carnival over Organisers of New South Wales-based expos the Henty Machinery Field Days (HMFD) and the Australian National Field Days (ANFD), along with South Australia’s Riverland Field Days, have all cancelled their events; all of which were scheduled to take place in September and October. In all cases, various lockdowns, closed borders and the further risk of snap lockdowns, in addition to the risk of COVID-19 transmission at each location, made the events unviable. In the case of Henty, the board is still considering the option of rescheduling the event to March 2022. Henty Machinery Field Days chief executive officer Belinda Anderson says the decision to look into rescheduling was based on the recommendation from NSW Health around the possibility of the virus being transmitted into regional areas. “HMFD has been advised that we are able to operate under the four square metre rule [no more than one person within four square metres of floor space]. However, NSW Health has strongly recommended the event be rescheduled,” says Anderson. “We also have considered the possibility of introducing the Delta strain of COVID-19 to the area and the impact this would have on our community. This was a risk we were not prepared to take.” The cancellation of the field days follows similar announcements made by other agricultural exhibitions such as the Elmore & District Machinery Field Days and Mallee Machinery Field Days while AgQuip, initially scheduled to take place over August 17-19, has postponed the 2021 event to November. ANFD manager Jayne West says the financial implications of the decision will be sizeable and shared her disappointment at the cancellation of the event for the second straight year. “The organisation will take a huge financial hit along with local businesses in the Cabonne Council and Orange City Council Local Government areas, but it is utmost that we look after the safety of our rural regions and community,” says West. “Snap lock downs could still be possible for the next few months and the staff and Committee will look into the possibility of organising some smaller events early next.”

AUTOMATION Discussions around safety standards and the practicality of autonomous machinery in farms are set to begin

Talks begin Grower group Grain Producers Australia (GPA) has started formal talks with the Western Australian government on the adoption of its code of practice (COP) for autonomous farm vehicles and machinery in Australia. Through the talks, GPA hopes to earn formal endorsement and adoption of the code, which it says will help improve access to autonomous vehicles and machinery as well as standardising automation for manufacturers, importers and distributors. Specifically, discussions will include improved safety standards, hazard controls and risk management procedures for autonomous machinery as well as corroborating the practicality of using the technology on-farm. GPA chair Andrew Weidemann says the ‘Code of Practice for Agricultural Mobile Field Machinery with Autonomous Function in Australia’, was a joint project with the Tractor and Machinery Association of Australia (TMA) and Society of Precision Agriculture Australia (SPAA). “The process of drafting and writing the code has been led by farm technology expert Dr Rohan Rainbow, working on contract to GPA, and his expertise is invaluable to the project’s success,” says Weidemann. “We are starting a national roll-out by seeking the WA government’s endorsement and adoption, given the vital importance of their early involvement and guidance; providing a design template for GPA to work from, with a similar code having already been adopted for the mining sector. “Endorsing this code will help enable the accelerated adoption of this exciting technology in Australia, which has massive potential to boost the productivity and the profitability of our grain growers, who contribute up to $12 billion already to the national economy each year.” Once implemented, the code will encourage and facilitate the adoption of automated machinery in

Discussions around the new code of practice for autonomous machinery will cover safety, risk management and practicality on-farm

the agricultural space and new investment opportunities on the horizon. The code also aligns to meet relevant government safety regulations designed to assist machinery operators to meet their legislative obligations under the Safe Work Australia’s Model Work Health and Safety laws. It will also support the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994. WAFarmers Grains Council president, Mic Fels, says the code represents not only an opportunity for WA to be the tester in autonomous machinery adoption but for the agricultural sector to drive the industry into the future. “Western Australian farmers have always had a strong reputation for early uptake and adoption of farming technologies that can help boost their profitability and performance,” says Fels. “We’re already seeing reports of some movement in this space, with smaller autonomous machinery that can spot spray weeds in paddocks during summer. “Other growers will be watching with great interest, to see how this can translate into dollars and cents on their own farms; especially moving towards scaling up to the future use of bigger driverless machinery at seeding and harvesting.” TMA executive director Gary Northover says the future of autonomous machinery – which is estimated to grow 14.4 per cent over the next seven years to a value of $272 billion – is enormous. “This increase is forecast to be driven by growing government and private sector investments in intelligent agriculture, as the future of sustainable farming and Australia’s initial share of this forecast expected to be significant,” says Northover. SPAA president Frank D’Emden says the adoption of the code is an important step for Australian agriculture. “It is very important to have an accepted COP to guide and inform legislation to support the successful and responsible adoption of autonomous technology within the Australian farming community,” he says.

Sales of combine harvesters are forecast to return to the 800+ unit sales not seen for the past two years

July sales surge Higher levels of interest in larger categories of agricultural machinery are becoming obvious in sales data

The new financial year has seen a continuation of the outstanding growth in tractor sales across the country, with July recording a 19 per cent increase on the same month last year. Activity is showing no signs of abating as the federal government’s temporary Full Expensing program replaces the Instant Asset Write-Off program – giving buyers the ability to write the entire value of their purchase off against this year’s profit, compared to the $150,000 limit in place to this point. This has clearly appealed to buyers with renowned interest in the larger categories of machine now becoming apparent. Against this backdrop, reports from across the country are indicating an outstanding season ahead with abundant rain falling in most regions. A more detailed look at the numbers reveals that all states have reported increases on the previous

July, with NSW leading the pack, up 28 per cent as the restocking of business in that state continues. Victoria was up 11 per cent and Queensland enjoyed a 16 per cent rise for the month. Sales in Western Australia rose eight per cent, South Australia reported a 25 per cent increase for the month and Tasmania finished 19 per cent ahead.

Sales into the Northern Territory enjoyed an 11 per cent rise. All performance reporting categories saw strong rises for the year, with the exception of the under40 horsepower (30kW) range, down 17 per cent in July due largely to stock shortages. The 40 to 100hp (30–75kW) range was again up strongly 20 per cent in the month; the 100 to 200hp (75–150kW) category was up 36 per cent. The large 200hp (150kW) plus range had another strong rise, up 138 per cent on what was a very quiet July last year. This category has been steadily rising as the market prepares for another bumper harvest season and buyers take advantage of the Temporary Full Expensing program to advance their fleet replacement programs. Sales of combine harvesters have been staging a steady recovery over the past year and dealers are reporting strong demand, which should be realised over the coming months leading to harvest. Forecasts are for a return to the 800+ unit sales levels not seen for a year or two. Baler sales were solid in July, up 27 per cent, and sales of out-front mowers have started the year strongly recording an 11 per cent rise. As the TMA has been highlighting for some months now the industry is coping with a range of extremes on the supply side at present. Machine deliveries continue to be pushed out, particularly in the smaller ranges and price rises for raw materials are beginning to impact the finished product. New challenges continue to emerge with items ranging from computer chips to tyres now having an impact.

Events A


Best in the west While numerous field day organisers in other states have been compelled to cancel their events in 2021, Western Australia’s Dowerin Machinery Field Days was an exception to the rule. Lincoln Bertelli got in touch with the exhibitors One of Australia’s biggest field days returned with a bang after being cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of visitors flocked to the Dowerin Machinery Field Days in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt region on August 25–26 and saw what a wide range of machinery operators had to showcase. Here are some of the products which were on display around the field days site. John Deere John Deere dealer AFGRI Equipment had several of the brand’s latest releases on display during the Field Days. These included a new 9RX 590 tractor, 8RX 370 tractor, C650 air cart and an S780 combine harvester on tracks with a new HD40R hinged draper with rigid cutterbar. The 9RX 590 is a 4WD track tractor with a powerful 440kW (590hp), 13.6L engine and high-end specs, designed with “real world usability” in mind. Capable of handling big equipment such as rippers, air seeders and grain carts, the 9RX 590 aims to be stronger and more robust than its predecessors. Changes included replacing fuel injectors with a high-pressure common rail system, removing the diesel particulate filter, integrating the coolant and oil passages and adding hydraulic valve lash adjusters, a hydraulic fan drive and a powerful engine brake. Deere says the result is 14 per cent more power and 11 per cent more torque while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption, overall weight and average repair time. Another four-track tractor is the 8RX 370, which

measures up at 276kW (370hp) with its 9L PowerTech engine, a choice of PowerShift or Infinitely Variable Transmission and an emphasis of space and operator comfort inside the cabin. The 8RX range has a model-specific four-post cab suspension, which helps to reduce vibrations for both field and road usage. It also offers a 3,785L ExactRate tank that allows operators to carry fertiliser within the tractor and three levels of customisation for both the tractor’s lighting package and cabin interior. Some of the perks of the top-end interior package include heated seats with massage function, a 16.5cm touchscreen radio, six speakers, subwoofer, footrests and a refrigerator. Only introduced to the Australian market last year, and not seen by many clients due to COVID-19 event cancellations, the midsize C650 air cart was another product shown by AFGRI. Named the 650 for its capacity in bushels (22.9 cubic metres), it sits between the 550 and 850 within Deere’s range and has the ability to fill all four tanks in just 20 minutes. Available as tow-behind or tow-between, other features include high-flotation tyres, ActiveCal technology to allow calibration to be done from inside the cabin while seeding and a durable display unit on the side of the cart. Another showpiece item was Deere’s S780 combine harvester. Offering Deere’s Combine Advisor package, which helps to set, optimise and automate combine functions when conditions change, there is also fully automated yield sensor calibration to supply instant and accurate data. A TriStream rotor increases fuel efficiency and

also reduces the force needed to move material through the combine by up to 20 per cent. It has a 14,100L capacity and can empty the tank at up to 134L per second. It was accompanied by Deere’s new HD40R hinged draper with rigid cutterbar. Features include grain saver draper belts, factory-installed integrated transport system and hydraulic suspension to separate the header from the combine. New Holland New Holland showcased the high-performing T8 and T9 tractor ranges, along with its Twin Rotor CR9.90, large square BigBaler HD and a wide range of hay and harvest equipment at its display in Dowerin. These ranges benefit from the capabilities of New Holland’s Precision Land Management Intelligence (PLMi) and IntelliView 12 display. The PLMi technology enables farmers to make informed agronomic decisions to improve their farming operations. Intuitive and fully integrated, PLMi increases farm productivity by providing real-time remote data display, real-time servicing reports and remote software update capabilities. The IntelliView 12 display allows farmers to accurately control sprayers, spreaders and air seeders using the primary user interface. IntelliView 12 also enables farmers to adjust and set Hydraulic Remote Valve Management, Headland Turn Sequence II and Engine Speed Management. With this technology, both the T9 PLMi and T8 PLMi series bring more power and productivity, cab enhancements, maximum versatility and additional support features aimed at reducing downtime and keeping operators in the field through MyPLM Connect. Herd Boss feed mixer and Mighty Giant grinder Two products that had not previously been displayed in Western Australia were showcased by Valton Feeding Solutions.

The first of these was the Herd Boss 980V feed mixer, so named for its 980 cubic feet capacity (28 cubic metres). It also offers hydraulic brakes as standard and a two-speed gear box while measuring in at an overall length of 8.76m and empty weight of 10,660kg. The other was the Mighty Giant 2015 PTO tub grinder, which offers hydraulic tilt, a 14-inch (35cm) discharge auger under the mill and screens available in a range of sizes. The Mighty Giant also has the ability to grind a large square bale in under one minute. Multistream air seeder The M24000 Multistream air seeder, one of eight models in the company’s range, was displayed by Ausplow at the Dowerin Field Days. The Series 2 range features sizes between 14,000L and 28,000L, with the M24000 named for its 24,000L capacity, spread across six tanks. The tow-between granular and liquid-ready seeder offers an updated and ISOBUS-compatible hydraulic control value, fully hydraulic 10-inch (25cm) diameter auger with remote control, hydraulic metering, dual fan option and pushbutton LED light package. Built and made in Western Australia, the Multistream air seeder also comes with a choice of tyres or tracks and the option of cameras fitted into the granular metering unit. Spyder Frame Created by K-Hart Australia, the Spyder Frame made its Australian debut at Dowerin. A collaboration between WA-based Direct Seeding and Harvesting Equipment and Canadian company K-Hart Industries, the frame was designed in Canada and built in Australia. It claims to have one of the narrowest transport widths on the market thanks to its unique folding technology, reducing to 4.5m width and 5.3m height. Currently available with a 12m cutting width, the Spyder’s linkage design allows for seeding on either





both ranks, or just the back rank with the front lifted and locked. Patented clam shell linkage arm technology also ensures close row spacing while seeding but also retaining the ability to lift and open for easy adjustment and servicing. Imants 58SX spader Ag Machinery Specialists showed off the 58SX Imants spader with auto-reset rippers. The 4.5m unit has a spade depth of 500mm and can rip up to 550mm, while a rotating spade shaft pushes the spader forward so there is no wheel slip and smearing. Complementing the spader is the latest release of a hydraulic tine V-ripper, which is an attachment that allows users to spade and rip their field in one pass. K-Line MaxxRipper and Speedtiller Two products from K-Line Ag’s tillage range – the MaxxRipper 3260T and Speedtiller Powerflex 2995P – were the showpiece attractions for the company at Dowerin. The MaxxRipper can break up compacted soils up to 600mm deep, while the 3260T is the top-end of K-Line Ag’s three products in the range. Suitable for tractors with power between 450–600hp (336–447kW), the 11-tine ripper has an operating width of 6m, weight of 5,500kg and tine spacing between 500mm and 550mm. It is a heavy duty option with a V-pattern tine layout to help with efficiency. The Speedtiller, meanwhile, is a dual purpose, high-speed disc-tillage machine that also helps to increase the soil’s carbon content and reduce erosion from wind and water. It penetrates the soil at an ideal depth while simultaneously lifting it for better soil compaction. Designed for Australian conditions, the Powerflex 2995P weighs in at 12,200kg with an operating width of 9.5m, offers 76 discs and is suitable for tractors between 360-500hp (268–373kW).

Eyes are turning to countries like Sudan and Brazil as the fodder baskets of the future

Forgotten food basket Plans to expand irrigated agricultural land around the Ord River have stalled since the ‘70s, leaving Western Australia lagging behind when it comes to producing fodder

In 1972, the Ord River Dam was completed in the far north of Western Australia, capturing 2,500 gigalitres of water. This was 11 times the size of Sydney Harbour and, with it, came 15,000 hectares of land for agricultural development. In the same year, Sudan opened up the first of the upper reaches of the Nile River for foreign investment, while Brazil opened up the vast central Cerrado region, along the southern tributaries of the Amazon. In all three jurisdictions not much happened between 1970 and 2000 due to government ineptitude, a lack of infrastructure, crop failures and supply chain issues but, after 2000, the race was on to expand and utilise their respective massive water resources. In the last 20 years, in an attempt to open up Stage II of the Ord, Western Australia has spent over half a billion dollars in taxpayer funds, along with vast amounts of bureaucratic time, to release another 13,500 hectares of land. In that same time, Sudan released 750,000 hectares of large-scale irrigation leases to investors from Qatar, Egypt, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Syria, Jordan and Turkey. In addition, it is looking to release another 3.4 million hectares for irrigated agricultural production. Brazil, in the same time period, opened up 3.5 million hectares for fodder under irrigation and is well into the planning stage to release another 22 million hectares. All the while, Western Australia, with its massive standing start, staggers along on its 50-year process

Lake Argyle, created by the building of the Ord River Dam

Trevor Whittington, CEO WAFarmers

of assessing the 5.4 million hectares of the Fitzroy catchment deemed suitable for irrigated agriculture, with only trial blocks released to date. As Sudan and Brazil race to utilise their water assets and develop intensive livestock industries, Australia is flat-out finding reasons not to. The frustrating thing is the potential to produce vast amounts of fodder through broadacre irrigation in the Kimberley was first recognised by the Duracks in the 1940s on the Ord and then by the famous Texan Jack Fletcher in the 1970s on the Fitzroy.

Fletcher had plans to develop a million-acre fodder industry across the seven stations owned by his Australian Land and Cattle Company but bureaucratic delays and a one-in-100-year flood washed away the 25,000 hectare stage I of the project, along with kilometres of levy banks, and, with it, probably the last chance of turning the Fitzroy into a fodder food basket. More recent attempts by the Harris family of GoGo station to get approval for a 50 gigalitre license for its planned 8,355 hectares of freehold irrigated cropland has run into endless hurdles, while mining magnate Gina Rinehart’s offer to exchange part of her Kimberley pastoral empire for a 325 gigalitre water license and a billion dollar development fell on deaf ears. Despite the strong demand from Kimberley’s 93 pastoral stations for fodder to supplementary feed their 650,000 cattle, the government in its wisdom has, after decades of inaction, ruled out any dams on not just the river but any tributaries. The government continues to claim that it is committed to working with anyone who has the patience to wait for a final decision, which will be an allocation of between zero and 600 gigalitres of water. A coalition of Indigenous and green groups are, however, calling for it to be zero. Its little wonder that all eyes are turning to countries like Sudan and Brazil as the fodder baskets of the future.

Window of opportunity Here’s how one South Australian grower is using John Deere’s virtual control systems to get the most out of his crops after a challenging start to the year

A determination to take control of the production elements he can, including machinery, is empowering mixed-enterprise producer Andrew Thomas to minimise the impact of varied seasonal conditions across his Murraylands farming operation. “Timing is everything when it comes to farming,” says Thomas. “There are small windows in farming where there are opportunities to implement practices to maximise production and, for us, we feel ensuring equipment is up and running is a strategy within our control we can use to help counter uncontrollable risks, like the weather.” John Deere’s Connected Support has been the key tool used to make this prioritisation of machinery possible across Andrew’s equipment fleet, which is used to farm 4,000 hectares spanning two properties — one at Moorlands and the other at Wynarka, about 120km southeast of Adelaide. Through Connected Support, a suite of digital tools linking farmers with their dealership, skilled technicians can connect virtually into Thomas’ cab via JDLink to provide instant remote diagnostics and back-up support. “I would say we wouldn’t be where we are now if it wasn’t for the technology we have,” says Thomas. “Connected Support is very important to our business. Our dealership used to have to travel an hour-and-a-half to our farm. Now, they can just log on remotely and fix an issue straight away. It’s saved me time and it’s also saved our dealership time.”

The need to maximise productivity during any season was drummed home recently for Thomas, who farms alongside his wife Emily and four boys, Jake (14), Micah (12), Owen (10), and Reuben (4), as his properties endured the worst start to the season he has ever experienced. “It was a very challenging start to the year. We had a lupin crop which had enough moisture to germinate, but not enough to survive, so we resowed the paddock to canola,” he says. “Across a lot of our region, we didn’t receive any decent rainfall to around mid-June. We are not looking at a bumper year, but providing we get a good spring, I think we are shaping up to achieve an average yield.” The Thomas’ cropping operation is typically made up of wheat (20 per cent), barley (25 per cent), canola (25 per cent) and oaten hay (10 per cent), with the remainder sowed to beans. About 500 hectares of land is under pasture, running Merino ewes bred to White Suffolk rams to produce crossbred lambs. For most of the year, Thomas is supported by a small on-farm team, including one full-time worker and a part-time employee. However, during the peak season, more staff are brought in to operate his John Deere 8RX 370 4-Track, 6620, 8245R and S770 combine harvester. The full fleet is connected to JDLink, meaning Thomas’ local dealership can analyse diagnostic trouble codes with the Connected Support’s Service Advisor Remote function and dial in through remote display access.

John Deere Connected Support is vital to Andrew Thomas’ business, which farms across 4,000 hectares in the Murraylands region of South Australia

“During seeding this year, we had a new casual worker who wasn’t used to John Deere equipment, who had few questions while he was operating a machine. Connected Support was so helpful, as we could dial in, look at his screen, and he was up and running again in a few moments,” says Thomas. Connected Support also provides farmers with access to Expert Alerts, a proactive monitoring system that automatically notifies dealers of certain unforeseen machine issues that can arise. While Thomas hasn’t personally needed Expert Alert, he knows the technology has helped other farmers avoid unnecessary repair bills. An eager adopter of precision agriculture practices, Thomas has also used John Deere’s integrated yield monitoring system with ActiveYield automatic calibration technology on his S770 harvester to grow his business’s productivity. “We are constantly running our own trials,” Thomas says. “We often tweak our input levels to learn the full capacity of our country, and through our monitoring system, we can quantify any gains. “Overall, we are growing more grain with less rainfall, and are managing our risks a lot better. Given the advancements in farming technology, the sector has become much more attractive for the younger generation. It’s a promising industry to be in.”

Hay tools

Owner oriented With a wide range of hay tools developed in direct response to customer needs, McHale has all the bases covered McHale’s range of innovative and durable balers, wrappers and integrated balers is designed to give farmers and contractors everything they need for what is likely to be a bumper season ahead. The Irish manufacturer is renowned for providing clever, pragmatic solutions to customers’ requirements, and introducing upgrades and new models only after extensive testing in the field. The Fusion Vario integrated baler wrapper is a great example of this, thanks to notable advancements in technology and design. “You can’t equal McHale for longevity and robustness,” says one Victorian-based contractor. “The Fusion is bulletproof and the fuel savings alone are huge. It’s the most satisfying machine I’ve ever used.” The Fusion Vario’s reputation stems from its reliability, its patented high speed transfer system and its high output. Fully automated, it can wrap bales from 1.1m to 1.45m in diameter, with the patented tip roller adjusting its height in line with bale size to ensure the plastic is always centred, regardless of how wide it is. Bale transfer occurs in one pass, without slowing output. When the bale is formed, netting is applied and the bale chamber then splits horizontally; the lower section transfers the bale into the wrapping ring. When the chamber closes work continues, as the machine automatically starts the wrapping process. For farmers looking to replace or upgrade a round baler, the McHale V6750 is part of the “nextgen” V6 range, boasting a bigger rotor, new pickup, enhanced panel design and different chamber options compared to its predecessor. Along with a 15-knife chopper unit, it also has a standard cam-operated 2.1m high-intake galvanised pickup fitted with five tine bars. A double drive system is standard on the V6750, benefitting belt rotation and bale formation and allowing operators to work in challenging conditions. The netting system on the V6750 features endless net adjustment and can hold net rolls up to 1,300mm in width. Topped off with an auto greasing system, 500/5022.5 tyres and McHale’s tried and tested drop floor unblocking system – alerting the operator to blockages and allowing them to respond by lowering the

drop floor from the tractor cab – McHale says the V6750 round baler will boost output and density. The McHale V6 range also includes the V6740 rotorfeed baler. Then there is McHale’s flagship V8 baler series, which the company says ups the ante in terms of bale size and solidity, driven by customer demand. The McHale V8940 non-chopper baler will create bales from 0.6m to 1.9m in diameter, and with up to 30 per cent more crop than a V6 bale. Equipped with a cam track pick-up, the new model features a variable chamber, equipped with a high intake twin finger feed rotor to promote consistent and efficient crop flow to the bale chamber. It comes with the large display Expert Plus control console, enabling the choice of bale density and size, as well as net revolutions. The V8940 features continuous oiling and a heavy-duty drive system powers belt and bale rotation. Also available in the McHale V8 range is the V8950 with 15 knives and an auto grease system. The fully automatic Orbital is a high-speed round bale wrapper that uses vertical wrapping ring technology – first seen in the McHale Fusion – to deliver high output, low maintenance wrapping capable of keeping up with multiple balers.

With a patented tip roller and consistent, even overlap to ensure fodder preservation, the Orbital’s ring wraps at 40 revolutions per minute for bales measuring 1.0m to 1.48m. It can apply four layers of film in under 18 seconds and six layers in under 25 seconds. The McHale 991 high speed bale wrapper has quickly forged a reputation for durability and quality, says McHale. The two-stepped 750mm aluminium dispensers, a hydraulically-operated cut and tie system, film break sensors and a patented bale dampener system, set this bale wrapper apart, says McHale, leading the way for efficient and effective round bale wrapping. The 991 wrapper has been received positively by farmers and contractors, with feedback testifying to the boost in output after using it in the field.  For further details about the McHale range, please talk to your local dealer or McHale Australia representative, or visit the website at  McHale 991 high speed round bale wrapper

Ten out of ten The new Dieci Agri Plus telehandlers makes light work of heavy hay operations for a major Australian fodder exporter Adding the Dieci Agri Plus 42.7 to its fleet of telehandlers has helped to change the game for Hay Australia, a large-scale exporter of highquality fodder. While operations manager Geoff Walker says the business has been using Dieci telehandlers for about four years, a recent decision to buy two of the new models is already paying off in terms of productivity and reliability. “We sell about 140,000 tonnes of fodder, mostly oaten hay, each year through sites in WA and Victoria,” he says. “We are constantly moving hay around the sites, from delivery to dispatch to the plant, and it’s all done by telehandlers. These machines run 24 hours a day, seven days a week and they clock up 2,500 hours per year. “Dieci is the best brand of a number we have tried.” Before buying the two new models, Walker bought a 40.7 Dieci telehandler, even though he knew it was probably not the ideal size for his high capacity, non-stop operation. “We were still running another brand at that time, but we put the Dieci in to give it a challenge. That Dieci machine is actually still running now and has done upwards of 6,000 hours!” he says. The two Agri Plus 42.7 models are both based in Victoria, where the original smaller Dieci is still hard at work. “The 40.7 with power shift is an excellent machine that will meet most farmers’ needs, but the hydrostatic single speed Vario Evo 2 in the 42.7 Agri Plus is just ideal in an around the clock production facility,” he says. “It’s like an auto transmission. Put your foot down and it drives. It also has a comfortable cab, which really matters when you are asking an operator to sit in there for a long period of time. They need space and good air-con because there’s a lot of glass and Dieci has the best air-con I have come across.” Hay Australia bought the new telehandlers with Dieci’s Haymaster specifications, adds Walker. “The Haymaster has a side shift on the boom and it’s surprising how often we use it. It lets you shift the carriage side to side to tightly pack the load. If you lift up and realise a bale on the front needs to move left or right, you can do so in small increments without having to move the whole machine. It takes some getting used to but once operators learn to use it, they love it.”

As in most businesses, time is money for Hay Australia, and breakdowns can get very costly, very fast. “Dieci’s reliability really has been excellent, but the reality is, every brand has breakdowns. It costs a lot when a machine is down. For us, losing the opportunity to do a couple of containers could cost $20,000 in cashflow, plus we’re paying wages to people who are just waiting around as we’re unable to load trucks coming in from farmers. It all just snowballs. “It really comes down to your dealership and their response time, their ability to carry spare parts and their knowledge of the machines. Farm & Diesel near Bendigo is our dealer and they have really looked after us. If we have a problem, they have always had us back up and running within a day. “We wholly and solely rely on Farm & Diesel to look after us. A good relationship with the dealer is paramount.” Hay Australia sells into Asian and Middle Eastern markets, servicing customers with high quality fodder for their equine, dairy and beef operations. “It’s critical to our business that we have the logistical and processing capabilities to handle large volumes, so we can minimise risk and maximise

returns for both growers and customers,” says Walker. “Choosing the right equipment and creating relationships with the dealership are an important part of being able to deliver on our promise of quality and reliability.” About the new Dieci Agri Plus 42.7: •  Maximum load 4,200 kg •  Maximum lift height 6.9m •  Maximum forward reach 3.75m •  230 litre/min hydraulic oil flow •  Peak power 153 hp (114kW) •  Maximum road speed 40 km/h •  Boom suspension and 460/70 R24 traction tyres •  Four driving modes, changed via an easy-to-read and LED screen •  Revamped cab with suspension seat, adjustable steering column and armrest, sound damping and more.

Hay tools SB 1290 large square baler

French connection Versatility is key for Kuhn, with its hay and forage tools built to handle a variety of crops and various different baling requirements

With many attachments in its product line-up, French manufacturer Kuhn says it is dedicated to helping farmers optimise their output and performance. In all of these, Kuhn says it strives to deliver the best quality agricultural machinery and prides itself on being a world leader in agricultural equipment innovation and design. Three of Kuhn’s core hay and forage tools are the Merge Maxx, the VB 7100 series round baler and the SB 1290 large square baler. Merge Maxx Kuhn’s Merge Maxx 760, 950 and 1090 belt mergers are highly versatile machines that the company says optimise the raking process for contractors and independent users alike. Whether it is light or heavy forage, dense or sparse, long or short, the Merge Maxx can gather any type of forage to form windrows, with a selection of configurations available to choose from. The Merge Maxx has been designed to pick up all types of forage in a delicate manner that will retain the maximum nutritional value of the forage while minimising the introduction of any impurities. It has a variety of raking widths to suit both largeand small-scale operations, with widths of 7.50m up to 10.95m, giving the mergers the ability to rake up to 20–30m of forage at any one time. To maximise output, the working speed of the Merge Maxx has increased to 3km/h, while producing consistent, uniform windrows. Kuhn’s Merge Maxx belt mergers have also been designed for an efficient ground following. To reduce the pressure on the ground and to preserve the grass stubble, the pick-up units have been fitted with a unique suspension system. The suspension system uses four powerful and

adjustable springs that adapt to the uneven terrain, guiding each pick-up unit perfectly to ensure no forage is missed. VB 7100 Series round baler Kuhn says its VB 7100 series variable chamber round baler sets a new standard in round baling, offering high performance and optimising output. Whether it be silage, hay or straw, the VB 7100 series can deliver a capacity of up to 30 t/ hour in various crop conditions, including straw and other dry products. With the proven four-belt + three-roller design in the bale chamber and Kuhn’s I-Dense system, the VB 7100 can produce round bales with densities up to 140kg per cubic metre, offering fast, secure and consistent bale formation in any crop condition, even silage. In addition to the bale density capabilities, Kuhn’s VB 7100 also has the ability to measure the moisture of the forage and automatically adapts the bale pressure depending on the different crops and crop conditions without interference of the operator.

Kuhn Merge Maxx 950 belt merger

VB 7100 series round baler

The VB 7100’s net binding system operates with active stretch technology that guarantees consistent net tension and ensures a sturdy bale shape. The net binding system has also been designed so that operators can facilitate loading from both sides of the machine. Operators can easily slide the net from the net storage into the net binder without lifting the entire roll or load the net from the safety of the ground. The Kuhn VB 7100 also features what the company says is one of the fastest tailgate operations on the market. In just four seconds, a bale can be ejected and the tailgate will be closed again. SB 1290 iD large square baler The Kuhn SB 1290 iD large square baler has been designed to combine performance with operator convenience, producing heavier bales to boost the profitability of baling operations for both contractors and independent operators.. To produce heavier bales, Kuhn’s SB 1290 iD increases the compaction by 60-plus tonnes and, as a result, provides a 25 per cent denser bale than conventional balers. Kuhn’s SB 1290 iD is an all-rounder machine suitable for all crop conditions including silage, hay, straw, lucerne and sugar cane leave and has an intake width of 230cm. Producing bales 120 x 90m, the SB 1290 iD produces square bales bound with a double knotting system. An advantage of a square-edged bale is that the risk of air getting trapped during wrapping is reduced, promoting the conservation of the bale and ensuring better quality feed for livestock. The smart design of the Kuhn SB 1290 iD offers important accessibility to the inside of the machine making maintenance easy to carry out. For added safety, the knotter deck is equipped with solid stairs and a safety railing.  To find out more about Kuhn’s hay tools range, head to Kuhn’s website: au/agricultural-machinery

It should be authentic but also fun to play

Game on The latest edition of Farming Simulator will soon be released, bringing a whole new set of branded machinery and accessories to your fingertips. Cat Fitzpatrick writes It’s a beautiful sunny day and a field of wheat, gently waving in the breeze, stretches out ready for you to cruise up and down behind the wheel of a brand new Claas Trion 750 Terra Trac compact combine harvester. Listening to the thunk of gear changes as you head uphill, you consider what to plant next and whether your budget will stretch to buying the Case IH AFS Connect Magnum tractor you’ve had your eye on. Maybe in bright blue. A wonderful daydream perhaps for those with less forgiving bank accounts, but with the newest edition of Farming Simulator, this could be your reality. Though, you’ll still have to deal with those pesky weeds. Farming Simulator is a Giants Software game that first came out in 2008, bringing the successes and downfalls of farming into people’s homes. The latest edition, Farming Simulator 22, is the biggest and best-looking yet, turning the everyday tasks of farm management into a game where friends and family can join in to turn your business from a basic set-up into a slick money-making empire. “Farming Simulator 22 will allow every aspiring farmer to creatively build their farm – no matter the age or real-life profession,” explains Giants Software head of marketing and PR Martin Rabl to Farms & Farm Machinery. “New crops, new maps, new machines and new brands are just the beginning of what players can expect.” Indeed, this isn’t just a collection of generic machinery and tools – Giants Software works with some of the largest manufacturers in the market to bring their latest models into the game. When buying machinery, you can also customise as much as you like, with different tyre brands, tyre types, engine setup, attachments and colour. Want to make everything you own John Deere green? Even your ute? That is entirely your prerogative. “The initial idea for the game came when a friend of Giants’ founders asked them if they could make a game that simulates working with a tractor,” says

Rabl as to how the idea of turning farming into a game came about. “He was a big farming fan and couldn’t find anything where this has been done in greater detail. During the development of it, more and more people voiced their interest and the idea was born to publicly release it on a greater scale. There is a core audience that is also part of the farming industry in real life and as the game grew bigger it attracted a playerbase, which enjoyed the relaxing setting and all the possibilities of creating their own farm.” With each new edition of the simulator, the aim is to make the sights, sounds and operations of a working farm feel as authentic as possible. A new addition to Farming Simulator 22 for

example is Seasonal Cycles, which affects what the player can do with their farm and how they manage their crops throughout the year. Leave your crops in the ground for too long and they rot. Raining outside? Then your meticulously planted sorghum will have to wait to be harvested another day.

Check out the largest machines on the market, such as the Case AFS Connect Magnum

The challenge is to balance authenticity against playability, says Rabl. When asked about the research that goes into being as accurate as possible without bogging down gameplay, he explains that many of the game developers have a farming background and close

contacts with the manufacturers whose machinery is featured means that new advancements in technology are reflected. “We strive to keep the balance between simulation and fun though,” he adds. “It should be authentic but also fun to play.” For example, running a tedder over mown grass in the game instantly turns it into hay, whatever the weather, but if you don’t control the weeds that’s going to impact your yield. As for getting manufacturers involved, Rabl explains that machine specs are supplied to the

developers in order to be rendered in the game as closely as possible to their real-life counterparts. “If possible, we also try to see [the machinery and tools] in action, but sometimes that would require long travels for machines which aren’t available near one of our offices,” he says. “For some older machines, no digital files are available and we need to work with photos and videos. Videos are especially helpful when it comes to checking how moving parts are working.” The machinery also wears out, requiring maintenance if you don’t want a sluggish mower making a meal out of your crop. Though you can clean your machines, there isn’t a fire risk aspect, so one less thing for Aussie farmers to worry about. The machinery available gets regularly updated with DLCs (downloadable content), which gets added to the main game. So, if you want to give a Claas Quadrant 5300 baler a spin, all you need is an internet connection. Though a full list of the hay making machinery and tools being included in the latest edition has not been announced yet, Farming Simulator 19 included: mowers from New Holland, Kuhn and Pöttinger alongside the self-propelled Krone BiG M 450; tedders and windrowers from manufacturers such as Kuhn, Pöttinger and Lely; the New Holland RollBelt 150 cylindrical baler, Kuhn square and round balers, and the Kuhn SW 4014 bale wrapper for silage; Arcusin bale collectors; and a wide range of wagons for transport. Overall, there will be 400 machines and tools

from 100 brands, with new maps, crops, manual gear shifting and production chains, so both farmers and non-farmers alike can enjoy the satisfaction of cruising across a paddock looking smart in the latest agricultural gear and dreaming big dreams of setting up their very own vineyard.

Both round and square baling is available

Farming Simulator 22 will be released at Australian retailers, November 22, 2021 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox and PC.

Hay tools A new high-density pick-up has been added across all Quadrant Evolution models

Inspired change Claas has reached across its product range to implement new upgrades to its Quadrant big square baler range, in moves it says will slash costs for owners Claas has revealed comprehensive technical upgrades to its Quadrant big square baler range in a bid to boost its durability and output in the field. The company turned to its Jaguar Forage Harvester for inspiration, replacing parts on the baler’s pick-up with highly resilient components from the harvester; while bearings, intake panels and other mechanics of the balers have also been strengthened and re-engineered to reduce wear costs. The new components alone are responsible for a sizeable durability increase for the balers, even when performing in extreme conditions, according to Class Harvest Centre product manager – Greenline, Blair McAlwee. “In an internal test involving 40,000 bales per machine, under extreme conditions in some cases, the new design was found to reduce wear of key components by up to 40 per cent,” says McAlwee. “This has the added bonus of smoother running, reduced noise levels, simplified maintenance and longer service intervals.” A new, mechanically driven high-density (HD) pick-up has been introduced across all Quadrant Evolution models – an addition that has been tweaked to improve the raking quality while still maintaining a gentle flow. The HD pick-up boasts five rows of 18 double tines – an upgrade of one extra row of tines that allows the pick-up to rotate slower even when the speed of the feed roller is increased. “The spring mounted feed roller compensated for uneven swaths and can be fitted with extra paddles when harvesting short-stalked crops,” says McAlwee. The pick-up upgrades feature a two-cam design to maximise torsional resistance and robustness when in operation, while the release torque on the friction clutch has also been increased up to 1,600Nm and the diameter of the pick-up main drive shaft has been enlarged. Within the upgrades made to the pick-up technology, Claas has added semi-automatic chain tensioning to ensure automatic lubrication on the pick-up drive and comes standard with the baler. The ‘heavy duty evolution’ of the Quadrant big square balers has resulted in several modifications


4 L

to the bale chamber. The top section, inclusive of the header place and side panels, have been strengthened and redesigned to produce balers with a better shape and higher density. Automatic baling pressure control responds quicker to twine tension or load in the intake area. Additional Hardox HD bearings from the ram guide have been added on the balers to reduce wear in the chamber, knotter area and intake, resulting in extended service intervals. Side knives and deflectors to help reduce material build-up in the ram guide area are optional extras and can further increase safety of operation. The bale chamber on the 5300 model includes a new front frame and headstock, as well as a new hitch frame – that includes a longer, double-acting hydraulic stand – which provides operators with additional hitching positions. Other upgrades made to the balers include Kennefix quick-release hydraulic couplers and a 10L hand-washing tank, both of which are fitted as standard. Claas says modifications to the twine box make life easier for operators.

The new design was found to reduce wear on key components by up to 40 per cent


“The twine box guide swings out and can be locked in position, allowing the operator to thread the twine whilst standing beside the machine without having to use a stepladder,” says McAlwee. “The twine brakes can also be adjusted from the ground without tools, saving time and increasing workplace safety.” The bale ramp on the Quadrant balers can now be hydraulically opened and closed from inside the cabin – a function that enables the final bale to be ejected from the drive’s seat. “The operating system has just two working and three settings menus, meaning the operator can rapidly navigate through the baler settings and performance,” says McAlwee. “In auto mode, the baler’s capacity utilisation is displayed based on average bale weight and baling pressure. “In addition, the driver can now monitor the oil temperatures and oil levels in the baler.”

HAY RAKE Inlon is offering a special deal for buyers of its Sitrex Pro Series hay rakes, but the offer won’t last long

While the sun shines Early-bird discounts on Inlon’s range of wheeled hay rakes are on the table for lucerne growers and contractors ahead of the fast-approaching hay season. Inlon has promised 20 per cent off the recommended retail price of its Sitrex Pro 17 and 19 V-wheeled hay rakes, with the limited stock expected to sell out quickly. Both models have large raking wheels that angle back at around 70 degrees, providing more lift to windrow crops in the field. The Sitrex Pro series hay rakes are quiet machines, with Inlon saying they can deliver clean pick-up with minimal dust and can operate smoothly across seed-drilled plant lines for improved raking and machine lift. The unique, uneven number of wheels on each side of the hay rakes is designed to prevent clumping and thus the need for a central kicker wheel. The short side pulls the crop into the windrow


while the long side then transfers the crop back to combine and complete the windrow. Wheel covers protect crops from the wind while also reducing crop friction to flow into the windrow more effectively. Tines are fitted inside of a flexible rubber mount to provide soft handling of crops. All adjustments can be performed whilst operating using the electro-hydraulic control panel. The Pro 17 hay rake, which features a maximum working width of 9.6m (31.6ft), is fast and efficient


The Sitrex Pro 17 hay rake

and is capable of raking around 15 hectares per hour. The rake is suitable for all types of crops and leaves a square, uniform windrow and can run behind a utility.  For further information, contact Inlon on 1800 945 090 or visit

Fields of gold The New Holland baler and crop preparation range helps farmers save time and money New Holland continues to make inroads in hay and foraging with a full range of equipment including balers, mowers, tedders and rakes designed to deliver productive operation. Its innovative BigBaler High Density range is capable of producing bales up to 22 per cent denser across different crop types when compared to conventional balers, the company says. The range of balers also features a longer chamber, heavier chassis and density ring, as well as the Loop Master knotting system – a technology that employs a new type of double knot to produce stronger and more robust bales. South Australian farmer Simon May says he boosted his baling output by “at least two to three times” using the BigBaler 1290 High Density baler. “We went from a large ‘four by four by eight’ square baler to the New Holland 1290 BigBaler and there really is no comparison in terms of weight and throughput,” says May. “Where we were averaging maybe 30 bales an hour, we are now able to produce 75 to 80 bales an hour of the same weight. It increases efficiency and saves time and trips to the processer as we’re handling fewer bales for the same tonnage out of the field.” In the realm of the roll-belt balers, New Holland has been a leading force for over a quarter of a century and was the first to introduce many revolutionary technologies now commonplace among variable chamber balers today. The latest fleet of roll belt balers – the RB180 and RB150 – continue to improve on existing technologies with the advanced Roll-Belt tech, which can improve capacity by up to 20 per cent and density by up to five per cent. Higher outputs mean more crop is baled at optimum conditions, with the feed assist roller funnelling crop into the rotor more efficiently while density cylinders, located on either side of the chamber, maintain uniformity. New Holland’s IntelliBale technology also enables the baler to control the tractor’s forward motion and bring the machines to a stop when the bale is ready to wrap, then raises and closes the tailgate when the bale has been ejected before giving a signal to continue baling. New Holland’s series of front mounted disc mowers includes the high performance DiscCutter F mower conditioner and the DuraDisc F mower.

The former is available in both 3.11 and 3.52m options and features advanced contour flotation technology which enables the mower to follow the ground accurately. The DuraDisc F is available in a 2.96m model and features the pendulum flotation system, designed to always follow ground contours. The rear-mounted DuraDisc non-conditioning mower is available in 2.02–2.77m cutting widths and benefits from the same mechanical flotation system. Other options in New Holland’s mower range include the five-model rear mounted pendulum suspended DiscCutter range which is available in 2.37 to 3.85m cutting widths. New Holland’s range of tedders – ProTed – is available in both mounted and trailed specifications. Six mounted models with working widths of 4.5–8.8m are available within the range while trailed tedders, ideal for operators looking to optimise the horsepower to width ratio, are available at 8.8m width. Tedders with widths from 6.6–7.6m are equipped

The DuraDisc F mower is available as a 2.96m model

with six rotors while the 8.8m models are fitted with eight rotors. The brand’s range of ProRotor L rakes features two side mounted rakes that can deliver the crop to the left-hand side on the 640T. A multi-link frame also enables variable working widths – able to be adjusted from the cab, while operators can also choose between single swath, two individual swaths of the turn swath option.

The KDT 340 has a working capacity of four hectares per hour

MOWING Whether it’s for an everyday farmer or a busy contractor, Samasz Mowers has a mowing option to suit everyone

Ready to mow Built in Poland and imported to Australia by Colac Ag, the Samasz disc mower range is designed to help farmers get the most out of their fodder crops. Samasz says its disc mower range is engineered to cause no turf damage, helping ensure animals get the maximal amount of value from the harvested fodder. For everyday farmers in Australia, the most popular models are in the KDT series, with more than 10,000 working on paddocks across the world. With eight discs across a working width of 2.6–3.4m, the KDT 340 and KDT 341 have a swath width of 1.4–2m and 2.3–2.8m respectively, and both with a working capacity of 3–4 hectares per hour. The mowers offer stapless regulation of cutting height – from 4.5cm to 7cm – while optional topping plates can increase the cutting height to up to 12cm. The mowers are built for operator-friendly use, with automatic locking and hydraulic lifting for headlands as well as adjustable lower hitch pins for easier attachment to various tractor types. The KDT 341 comes with options of a double outer rubber swath guide and a two-swath cutterbar configuration assembled by the manufacturer, while both can also come with a cutting disc with instep. The mowers include roller or flail conditioner and transporter conveyor options that can bring the grass into one windrow. For contractors, Samasz’s MegaCut KDD 861 and KDD 941 double disc mower conditioners boast many of the same features with regard to cutting height and operator friendliness. However the units are able to handle a much wider area, with the KDD 861 boasting a working width of 8.6m thanks to two mower heads with a swath width of between 1.9–2.3m that enable it to cover about 10ha/h. The KDD 941 has a working width of 9.4m, with twin mower heads able to reach 2.3–2.7m wide, enabling the unit to cover about 11ha/h. The units are equipped with 14 discs and 16 discs respectively and also come with Kennfix hydraulic connectors, a central suspension system, four support legs and a ground pressure relief system. Optional tine conditioning, rubber conditioning roller or steel on steel conditioning rollers are also available on the units.

BALE WRAPPER Elho’s largest bale wrapper and its 9.5m super swather are now available Down Under through Colac Ag

Centre stage Finnish manufacturer Elho’s Sideliner 1790 Pro bale wrapper and V-Twin 950 Super swather, representing some of the larger products in its range, are now available Down Under. Now available in Australia through Colac Ag, the Elho Sideliner 1790 Pro was built by Elho for large diameter round bales. Able to wrap bales from 1.2–1.8m in diameter and up to 1.2m wide, the machine can handle bales weighing up to 1,600kg – above the unit’s own weight of 1,480kg. The Sideliner 1790 fully automates the wrapping process, from loading to offloading, using its intelligent control system to automatically align the bale to the centre of the wrap table. Dual 750mm satellite wrap arms with film guards come as standard, along with a hydraulically controlled tow bar to ensure smooth and convenient handling. It also comes with standard 17-inch (43cm) wheels, road transport lights and mudguards. The unit can be trailed behind a tractor, though Elho will also provide an additional mounting set as

Sideliner 1790 Pro bale wrapper

an option to connect the wrapper to a round baler. Also available as options are a bale turning ramp or drop mat to make collection of the wrapped bales easier – with the ramp able to be set to drop bales to either the left or right. Colac Ag has also made the new Elho V-Twin 950 Super swather available in Australia, saying its adjustable working width means it can be used with any forage harvester – and do its work following any harvest method – regardless of its size. The wide trailed swather has an adjustable working width of 4.5–9.5 metres with a swath width of 1.3–2.2m, which Elho says also makes the model ideal for irregular paddock sections as well. The swather’s HydroBalance suspension system helps it follow the ground smoothly, while its 2.4–3.2m transport width means it’s easy to move. Elho also uses double rotors on the 950 to lift the forage and move it to the centre without it touching the ground – helping it produce high-quality forage – which it can position to either the right- or left-hand sides of the tractor.  Colac Ag also distributes other products in the Elho range.

Hay tools BALER A fully integrated moisture sensor and a better display monitor will improve productivity and bale quality in Case IH’s new RB5 round balers

Flowtast an innovative feature on the Top 842 C

A new glide bar helps ensure Pöttinger’s hay rake keeps forage contamination to a minimum

Smooth operator Ag-tech specialist Pöttinger has upgraded its Top 842 C centre-swath rake with an innovative feature it says will improve ground tracking in the field. Now available as an option, the new Flowtast glide bar offers a replacement to jockey wheels, tracking the ground close to the tines across the ground’s entire surface. Making its debut in Germany at Agritechnica 2019, the bar is designed to glide over wet and peaty soils, even those with deep marks and holes in the ground. During development, Pöttinger says it paid close attention to situations in the field where a wheeled chassis reaches its limit, such as on wet, peaty soils and when working with whole crop forage where the sward does not provide full surface cover. “If the wheels sink in, the tines inevitably scrape the ground and the forage becomes contaminated,” the company says. From this, the Flowtast was developed. The technology was able to glide smoothly over problem areas – with its load-bearing capacities improved by the large ground contact area. The addition of a hydraulic cylinder has further alleviated the weight of the Top 842 C rotor unit on the soil; resulting in a low ground pressure of only approximately 200kg. The subsequent reduced wear and lower stress on the rake’s frame also helps to minimise repair work and downtime on the rake. During testing, Pöttinger engineers tested various materials for the application and settled on a special plastic – PE 1000 – which possesses significant resistance to wear and abrasion. Each glide bar consists of five individual and exchangeable 15mm-thick plates. The glide bar has also been installed close to the tines to provide ideal ground tracking and tine guidance. Pöttinger’s Multitast jockey wheel system can be fitted as an optional for additional ground tracking in conjunction with using the Flowtast guide bar.

Uniform full-surface ground tracking

Sensitive type Case IH has made improvements to its round baler series as the 2020–21 hay season approaches and demand for balers remains high. The series, comprising the RB455 and RB465 variable chamber balers, will now have the option of a fully-integrated moisture sensor included in the range – a first for Case IH round balers. The integrated moisture sensors enable operators to use moisture information during operation in order to make more informed decisions on the quality of the crop as well as storage options. “This new feature provides real-time information on the moisture of the crop being baled,” says Case IH product manager – hay and harvest Australia & New Zealand, Tim Slater. “There’s no need to stop baling to probe the bales, as would previously have been the case with a hand-held moisture sensor.” The addition of an AFS Pro 700 display monitor has also been made with the upgraded technology now standard on Case IH’s round baler offerings. The larger screen provides operators with a clearer view of baler functions such as bale core size, bale and core density and overall size and shape of the bales. Case IH has also revised the shape of the pickup end flare to improve edge feeding. The diameter of the windguard roller has also been made larger, plus the ability to adjust the device to a lower position for improved feeding in all crop conditions. “This new design resists stalling and ploughing of the windrow when compared to narrower diameter rollers, further enhancing the performance of the baler and reducing down-time for producers,” says Slater. “These updates are what our customers have been looking for, assisting with greater productivity and enhancing bale quality.” Flexible bale size can be achieved with the RB5 Series, given the balers have always featured the variable chamber, meaning operators can alternate sizes depending on crop and storage requirements. Baler adjustments can be made without leaving the tractor using Case IH’s standardised software and operator interface with all essential set-up and

With integrated sensors there is no need to stop work to monitor moisture

operating data available at the operator’s fingertips. Data available includes number of bales produced during the day and whether the bales are chopped or unchopped. A self-diagnostic alarm system will provide operators with all information should any problem arise in the field. Four settings are pre-programmed into the bale’s performance monitor which can be selected based on crop type and conditions. A fifth programmable setting is available to suit individual bale wrapping conditions. “Our round balers get the job done quickly, efficiently and with a high degree of precision, keeping the crop where it needs to be: in the bale and not left on the ground,” says Slater.

Flexible bale size can be achieved via the new, larger AFS Pro 700 display monitor

Cracking into the congested speed disc market is no easy task. When you take a close look, there is a lot to choose from. Fortunately, Lemken has quite the pedigree in this field (pun intended), having been in the game for an impressive 240 years. From a foundry established by Wilhelmus Lemken in 1780, the brand has grown to become a globally recognised manufacturer of agricultural machinery

Words Jaiden Drought    Images Justin Bennett

Straight-up quality F

or our Lemken test experience with EuroAgri, the six-metre Lemken Rubin 10 was set up just out of Ashburton on New Zealand’s South Island, ready to work on an ex-kale dryland paddock, which had a consistency similar to concrete. The Lemken Rubin 10 is different to most other speed discs in that its large, scalloped discs are mounted individually on cranked, forged steel legs with individual coil springs. This allows it to work down to 14cm and individually ‘jump’ over obstacles – resulting in outstanding trash flow.

anomaly where the centre discs are on larger legs and springs, and both throw the same direction on the front and rear gang but are more offset than the rest. This allows for a perfect working depth across the width of the machine without an uncultivated strip in the middle where the discs join. That’s a lot to explain (whew!) but, hopefully, once you look at the photos showing the design, it will all make sense.

Also available are outer discs that essentially keep the soil in the machine, similar to the sideboards on a power harrow. The Lemken Rubin machine we trialled wasn’t fitted with them due to a delay in shipping, but it does keep things nice and tidy and provides a level finish. Maintenance Made from hardened Duramaxx Steel, the discs are The soil movement on the first pass, despite the concrete-like conditions, was impressive

Disc arrangement Another distinguishing feature is that the two gangs of discs are arranged differently on each side of the machine. With 48 discs in total (25cm apart), on the front gang, 11 are placed on one side and 12 on the other side. On the rear, there are 13 on one side and 12 on the other in the opposite arrangement to the front. Confused? It’s difficult to explain but, essentially, the front row chops and throws the soil up, while the back row additionally chops any turf while providing a smoothing effect. The additional disc on the rear gang also neatly brings any soil that has been thrown out from the first row back in line. The other benefit of having half the row going one way and the another half the other way is that the discs don’t crab and bounce from side to side like some speed discs do in tough conditions (such as the paddock we were working in), resulting in a much smoother paddock. To test my explaining skills: there’s another

645mm, with legs angled at 20 degrees. The discs themselves have an angle of 17 degrees on the front and 15 on the back, accompanied by maintenancefree hubs. The fancy suspension system on the Rubin is taken care of by 15mm springs that essentially work as an auto-reset system. When an obstacle is hit, that single leg pops up and then the compressed spring pushes back down to regain the desired depth. This also takes any unnecessary stress off the frame. While this could be seen as higher maintenance long-term, it definitely provides better contourfollowing across the width of the machine than standard rubber block mounted discs on angled rectangular hollow sections. Adjustment Other impressive features are the easily adjustable but cleverly designed rebound harrows (which knock sods back to be re-chopped), as well as the rear levelling, hockey stick-type paddles. A simple turnhandle design with one handle for each side of the machine allows for simple adjustment. For me, this means that operators are more likely to get out and do the adjustment if they don’t have to deal with clips and pins. Additionally, if you have hydraulic rams in place, operators are more likely to play around with it all the time, resulting in an even worse finish across the paddock. I love Lemken’s simple set-and-forget operation. I guess that’s what you’ve got after being in the game for more than 240 years. The soil-on-soil double roller is adjusted via two rams on each side. Combined with the large drawbar ram at the front, this ensures the machine

sits level while working and can be simply adjusted, with a nice, easily readable depth gauge visible from the cab. Optional front gauge wheels are an addition that I think would be great for this machine, and when fitted work in conjunction with the rear roller, it allows perfect working depths across the length of the machine. The cleverness doesn’t stop there either, with the transport locking system sucking the roller in to keep the transport width just under three metres. The roller also calibrates the system before it’s folded, so once unfolded, it goes back to the previous setting. The transport wheels (550/60 R22.5) provide a well-balanced and stable machine on the road. The cultivator can either be drawbar mounted (like our test machine) or on a three-point hitch system, with three double-acting spools needed, which look after rear transport wheels, folding and the depth roller.

Sleek-looking, well-built machine Large rear transport wheels Clever yet simple adjustment Large diameter discs really chop and move the soil Double ‘soil on soil’ roller makes a nice finish Easy to see depth adjustment scale Minuses For headland turning, I prefer lifting onto roller than transport wheels

Performance As mentioned earlier, given that the soil was extremely hard, it was mighty impressive that the discs even went in the ground, to be honest. The finished result after two passes was exceptional, given this is labelled as a primary cultivator. I think of primary as ex-crop ground, but the ability to be a secondary machine after a plough or offset discs for ex-tough pasture adds to the machine’s arsenal.

The only thing I didn’t like was the headland turning needs the machine to be lifted onto the transport wheels. For me, lifting onto the roller instead at the headland gives you less soil dumping, and you get the transport wheel marks in the finished product as opposed to the roller, which gives a nice even finish across the width of the machine. Summary Thoughtful, clever design is evident throughout the Lemken Rubin 10. It’s a heavy-duty machine, yet profile cutting high tensile, low weight steel has been used to allow the weight of the machine to provide good soil penetration without the need to drag a large, overly heavy machine, burning diesel and tyres, around. Given how hard the soil was we were working in, the discs didn’t move around at all, which was impressive given that most speed discs would have been bouncing and moving all over the show. The simple left/right combo on each side is a genius piece of engineering, providing a well-balanced machine with auto reset individual spring discs and large-diameter discs, which ensures this serious bit of kit stands out from the crowd in a busy market.  Lemken machinery is available through dealerships in QLD, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
