November 2012

I travelled to Indianapolis for a training school at the factory for a week. It was a great week with the Apache technicians, going over the whole sprayer.


The factory was in full swing and had plenty of pre sold stock waiting to be delivered. The US dealers pre order their stock and wait for Spring before it is delivered to the dealership, so space  at ET gets tight at the end of winter.

sept Mark Zell  from Gulargambone took delivery of an AS 720 fitted with 24 metre boom. Mark had the Trimble 750 screen, field IQ and EZ Pilot fitted, to control the spraying. Mark  crops about 3500 acres of winter crop , and runs cattle. Mark said that he liked the larger cab and visibility after coming out of his old Spra Coupe.

At the end of the month I will be travelling to the US for the annual dealer conference. I am looking forward to checking out the new parts complex at ET and finding out future developments.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Ag quip at Gunnedah is just around the corner, and we will have the AS 1020  sprayer there, followed by Henty field days in September.
