McIn­tosh and Tr­u­fab have launched the Aussie-made Truchaser chaser bin

Farms & Farm Machinery - - News -

West Aus­tralian-based agri­cul­tural dealer McIn­tosh & Son has joined forces with Tr­u­fab En­gi­neer­ing to pro­duce the Truchaser chaser bin for this year’s har­vest.

Based on Tr­u­fab’s re­cent Grain King mod­els, the Truchaser is an Aus­tralian-made chaser bin sold at a re­al­is­tic price for pro­duc­ers and set to be dis­trib­uted ex­clu­sively though McIn­tosh & Son’s nine Aus branches.

Built in Cun­derdin, WA, the Truchaser pro­vides a cost-ef­fec­tive, re­li­able and easy-to-op­er­ate so­lu­tion for grain han­dling,

McIn­tosh says.

The Truchaser chaser bins are avail­able in 18, 25 and 30-tonne options with ei­ther a sin­gle axle or with leaf-sus­pen­sion tan­dem steer­able axles.

The sin­gle-axle units have a to­tal width un­der 3.5m, re­mov­ing re­quire­ments for road es­corts, while the tan­dem-axle units are ideal for con­trolled traf­fic op­er­a­tions with its 3m wheel cen­tre.

The Truchaser has a dis­charge rate of up to 10-tonne per minute thanks to its 18-inch di­am­e­ter dis­charge auger.

An­thony Ryan, the dealer prin­ci­pal for McIn­tosh & Son’s Won­gan Hills, Moora and Merredin branches, says the 3m cen­tres and steer­able axles with sus­pen­sion on the tan­dem chaser bins are a par­tic­u­larly strong fea­ture.

“That’s pretty good to have on tan­dem units,” Ryan said. ”It’s a high-spec un­der­car­riage for an af­ford­able price.”

Other fea­tures on the Truchaser in­clude full-length floor doors for quick and easy bin clean-outs, heavy-duty roll tarp, a high right-hand side and 12-month war­ranty.

McIn­tosh & Sons was es­tab­lished in 1955 and has nine branches in WA and Queens­land.

Tr­u­fab is the en­gi­neer­ing com­pany be­hind the Grain King field bin and has been mak­ing chaser bins since 1982.

The McIn­tosh & Son Truchaser chaser bins will start at $63,800 (in­clud­ing GST).
