Take control, remotely
With grain growers looking for ways to improve the safety and efficiency of their operation, attention has often focused on new and innovative products.
Wimmera Mallee Ag spare parts interpreter Aidan Timms said the Grainline Remote Controlled Door system, designed to fit to over the bagging door on the tailgate of a tipper, was developed to make filling seeders an easy and one-man operation.
“By installing these on the rear of existing tipping body trucks, the user can carry greater loads of seed and fertiliser while using existing equipment,” he said.
Farmers throughout Australia have proved these systems invaluable over the years as a safe and efficient way to fill seeders.
Mr Timms said the concept of being able to open, close and control the flow of material out of a grain door from the platform of a seeder had revolutionised this operation.
Manufactured in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, the completely wireless remote control system uses two 12 volt linear actuators to operate the doors.
“Lights on the face of the control box indicate which door is operating when it’s in use,” a NSW farmer explained. “By installing V-form divisions in your tipper and running transfer tubes down to your Rota door, you can set up your tipping truck to carry two or three different products.”
Mr Timms said using the remote controlled door system could save time, increase productivity and minimise the risk of accidents.
