40 years with Krone John Tulloch proudly displays the award
 
jwt

Krone sales director Wilhelm Voss made a special visit to New Zealand in February to personally congratulate John Tulloch and the team for 40 years of loyal service distributing Krone products throughout New Zealand. Mr. Voss reinforced Krone’s commitment to Tulloch Farm Machines and noted the special relationship between the Krone and Tulloch families. During this time there has been generation changes on both sides of the alliance, with John taking over the reins from Graeme Tulloch on the one hand, and on the other, Bernard Krone III about to hand over to Bernard Krone IV. John will attend the August 2010 function near Spelle in Germany marking that milestone.

Come and see these machines at Mystery Creek Fieldays

Tulloch Farm Machines cordially invites customers to visit at Mystery Creek and view the machines on display. Of particular interest we have the New Zealand launch of the new Krone Comprima CF155 XC and the Monosem NG Plus4 precision planter.


Krone - Comprima CF155 XC

We are all used to the terms fixed-chamber and variable-chamber when talking round balers. Well, Krone has come up with a world first - a fixed - chamber round baler that is capable of producing a range of bale sizes from 1.25m to 1.5m in 5cm increments.

Monosem - NG Plus4 Extend

Tulloch Farm Machines has recently been appointed the New Zealand distributor for the world-renowned Monosem planters from France and the USA. The model NG Plus4 Extend on display demonstrates simple yet innovative features to ensure optimum germination - and the high degree of versatility achieved by its ability to change row spacings from 45cm to 80cm in 5cm increments in a matter of minutes. For those interested in additional concepts in optimising maize yield: talk to us about synchronised twin-row planting from Monosem.

75 years of Einbock

Einbock celebrated 75 years of business in 2009. From humble beginnings when Leopold Einbock opened a blacksmith shop in 1934, the business has grown to the successful company it is today, headed by Leopold Einbock III.

Young vigorous pasture is key to successful farming today, and since 2005 when we first introduced the Einbock Pneumaticstar seeder it has primarily been used for sowing new pasture into prepared ground. Just recently we sold two units to farmers who want the machine primarily for pasture management and restoration — exactly which the machine was designed for. Taking a 6-metre machine into existing pasture and scouring it out and undersowing at 8kph makes a lot of economic sense. We will report the results in the next newsletter.

Einbock Pneumaticstar Pro
 

Based on the success of the Pneumaticstar, Einbock has now introduced a new model Pneumaticstar Pro aimed more at contractors.

Configured the same as the Pneumaticstar, the Pro features a beefier tool bar, option of 10mm tines, and a parallelogram linkage connecting the tine sections to the tool bar which allows greater flotation than the current system. The Pro also features remote hydraulic tine adjustment.

Congratulations to Trish Lewis on a remarkable achievement.

Trish recently sailed solo from New Plymouth to Mooloolaba in Wishbone, a 25-foot Reactor. This was the smallest boat in the regatta and Trish was placed third on handicap. It was the first time in 35 years that a woman (and there were two this time) sailed in this event. Trish spent 12 days 5 hours and 21 minutes at sea. It is worthy of note that the Reactor hull was designed in New Zealand by Paul Whiting when he was only 16 years old.

Buying the new Krone machinery has paid off, with much lower running costs than before.
