Distribution Update: October 2021

What’s happening at Waringa


It has been quite busy at our workshops in Welshpool and Horsham the past couple of months.

Harvest has now started, and we are finalising the delivery of our Elmer’s Haulmaster Chaser Bins around the country. Some are already up and running in Northern WA region.

Agri-Spread deliveries have also been steady across all states, with dealers getting the units assembled and PD’d ready for the upcoming season.

Equalizer Seeding equipment has started arriving at our SA and eastern states dealers, and we have managed to get some stock in early to try and minimise delays early next year.

Unfortunately, we are still seeing numerous challenges with shipping across the country, and this seems to be affecting all imports, putting a lot of strain on the industry. We urge our customers to plan for next season’s equipment orders as early as possible.


We have 3 Highline 1200 FaStack Bale Stackers out on demo. These are the first 3 units to come into Australia and the feedback to date has been excellent.

Harvest has already begun in WA’s Northern Wheatbelt which has given us the opportunity to setup our new Geringhoff TruFlex Razor Air draper header fronts at Waringa Farming. We are trialing and testing 3 of these units this year to ensure they meet our expectations for distribution for 2022 harvest.

Early reports suggest these header fronts will exceed expectations so watch this space as we are pretty excited!
