WESTFIELD Augers Australia have released a new range of conveyors.

Managing director Roland Schmelzer said the range was a great fit for Australia particularly for high value legume crops such as chickpeas, lentils and mungbeans.  

“There's been a big increase in grain legumes in Australia,” he said.

Mr Schmelzer said the range would reduce the chance of splits and damage to the grain while remaining efficient.

“These conveyors are high capacity and gentle handling,” he said.

Mr Schmelzer said the belts were also suitable for fertiliser handling.

“The belt is far superior for moving fertiliser around, it won’t chomp it up and will reduce the fines,” he said.

Mr Schmelzer said the dry weather had not affected interest at AgQuip.

“I’ve seen crops in my time come back from near death to produce an economic yield.”

“A lot of growers had a very good year last year, I’ve had a lot worse AgQuips then this,” he said.
