HAEUSLER’S Echuca has taken out the the Bendigo Advertiser Best Paddock Demonstration award at the Elmore Field Days for 2012.
The business held three in-field demonstrations for the John Deere 960 Baler, the Agland Macerator and a John Deere Machine Sync and new series combine.
Haeusler’s Echuca sales representative Richard Jardin said the sync and combine units were worth approximately $700,000.
The units were released in Australia on August 26.
“It’s such a new thing so it’s probably the first demo in Australia,” Mr Jardin said.
He said a contractor had bought two of the units at the field days after watching the in-paddock demonstrations.
“People seemed very impressed with it,” he said.
“It’s something they’ve never seen before.”
Mr Jardin said it took the team several hours to set up the demonstrations.
“It takes a bit of effort really.
“It probably takes a good six or seven blokes to make it all come together.”
