SPRING field days have kicked off with Arcusin showing off their new bale handlers in a series of on-farm events.
Held across key hay-making locations in New South Wales and Victoria this month, the days were a chance to see the machinery in a working environment.
Agricultural, Construction & Forestry Equipment Suppliers (ACF) based in Penrith is the Australian distributor for the Spanish brand.
ACF director James Fitzpatrick said the Arcusin Multi-pack C14 demonstrations took place in Forbes, Shepparton & Elmore areas.
“Small bale producers were able to witness the Multi-pack produce a pack of up to 14 small square bales.”
“Customer were also able to see the compaction of the bale packs and ease of transport and storage with trailer loading specifications also new for 2017,” he said.
Mr Fitzpatrick said an Arcusin Auto stack FSX was shown at Horsham demonstrating a solution for handling large square bales more efficiently.
“The Auto Stack, only requiring one operator, features easy and safe unloading, whilst producing a neat stack of bales,” he said.
Mr Fitzpatrick said the demonstrations illustrated to customers the potential to move bales off the field 75% faster than traditional processes and equipment.
“There is less handling of bales and reduced risk of contamination of the product.”
“Arcusin equipment reduces labour costs and can provide savings of both time and money.
“Customers find it attractive to have a quality, affordable piece of equipment in their operation that offers maximum productivity due to the process of only handling the bale once,” he said.
