wider reach

From July 2022, CNH Industrial will distribute its own brands, including Case IH and New Holland, to dealers across New Zealand - forgoing its existing agreement with CB Norwood. In a statement, CB Norwood said the arrangement would not impact its retail operations. "The company’s sales, parts, service and warranty support for New Holland and Case IH tractors, harvesters and equipment will continue as normal. So, it’s business as usual for Norwood customers," it says. CB Norwood chief executive Tim Myers says the change reflects a global trend in how original equipment manufacturers have started taking their products to market. "With CNH Industrial managing wholesale supply and distribution, we’re able to focus on best-in-class customer experiences," he says. "As well as selling and servicing world-class agricultural machinery, we’re better positioned to front foot the changes…

lending spike

Business lending in the agricultural sector has jumped significantly while rural land prices are also surging, according to reports by two of Australia’s big banks. Data from the Commonwealth Bank shows its overall business asset finance lending during the 2020–21 financial year was 20 per cent higher than the medians recorded over the past decade. Agriculture was one of the key contributors to the increase, up by 50 per cent, with only aircraft and shipping plus earthmoving equipment outdoing the sector. Within agriculture, headers were the star performer, with lending for investment in that product up by 120 per cent. Commonwealth Bank also found business lending for seeders was up 72 per cent, harvesters had a 50 per cent boost, lending for tractors increased by 41 per cent and sprayers were up 21 per…

fresh approach

Amazone has unveiled new spreader technology that automatically compensates for wind on the real-time spreading pattern. The new system, WindControl, automatically monitors and adjusts spreading patterns to minimise the impact of wind when spreading by using high-frequency wind sensors to record wind speed and direction. Wind and ground speed data is then calibrated via a computer to calculate new spreader settings, which adjust the position automatically for consistent spreading in the field. The new technology is available on Amazone’s range of ZA-TS mounted and ZG-TS trailed twin disc centrifugal spreaders. Amazone product specialist at the Class Harvest Centre Joshua Patrick says the extent to which wind can alter the distribution of fertiliser is significant. “Headwinds or tailwinds can stretch or compress the spreading pattern, while crosswinds can shift the pattern laterally,” says Patrick. “These changes can…

Tyre manufacturer Mitas has developed a new range specifically for operators of self-propelled slurry tankers and as well as harvesting machinery and other heavy agricultural equipment. The new HC 3000 R tyre range features very high flexion (VF) technology and rounded shoulder sections, as well as what will be the largest high-capacity tyre in the Mitas HC range, the new VF 1000/65R32 CFO. Mitas agricultural tyres product manager Pavel Kott says that, unlike the brand’s other HC tyres, which are primarily used on combine harvesters, the new model was developed with self-propelled slurry tankers in mind. “We developed this new tyre in response to market demand for a high load capacity tyre for slurry tankers, equipping it with a new and highly soil-friendly tread pattern,” he says. Thanks to its innovative carcass structure the…

need for speed

Wayne Marshall from Bundy Ag Contracting says his first involvement with the Austrian manufacturer came from several trips to Europe, which is where he first discovered the SF280 and eventually purchased the first one brought to Australia. He says the distribution process takes about 40 per cent less time for both fine and long chops, while also praising the safety features. “The rotary action of the distributor helps greatly with the fit and trim to fit the tarps,” he says. “There’s no leaning out of the stack, which makes it very safe, and it is easy to control the rolling depth for every load, which makes a very compact product. “The Gigant virtually builds the stack itself.” The SF280 Gigant has a 1,280mm drum diameter, 3,500mm working width, up to 20 degree swivel range when…

worth the wait

German manufacturer Horsch has entered the Australian sprayer market. Its first unit, the newly-released Leeb 6.280VL sprayer, has arrived in the country and will initially be shown to customers before being made available for sale. It marks a new product direction for Horsch, which has previously been focused on broadacre seeding and tillage equipment in the Australian market. Jan Moens, service and training manager at Horsch distributor Muddy River Agricultural, says the introduction of sprayers to Australia has been on the company’s radar for several years but finding the ideal model had been a hindrance. “We’ve been looking at sprayers for a number of years but one of the issues we’ve had is finding the right specifications,” he says. “Being a European product, Horsch started developing the machine for their European market and it’s only…
