Buhler to introduce new products in Regina, SK and Westgate, IA

    WINNIPEG, June 18 /CNW/ - Buhler is releasing two new products this week
at the Western Canada Farm Progress Show in Regina, SK and the Farm Progress
Hay Expo in Westgate, IA.
    The Buhler Farm King grain handling division will display the new Buhler
1035 conveyor, the first conveyor designed and built at the factory in Morden,
MB. This 10" x 35' conveyor represents the first step in an expanding line of
Buhler conveyors that will be introduced in the coming months.
    "We're excited about these new products," says Steve Froese, Sales
Manager for Buhler Manufacturing. "The new conveyor will be manufactured
alongside the full line of Buhler Farm King grain augers at the factory in
Morden, which has been building grain handling equipment since the 1930's.
Buhler conveyors will borrow design cues and innovations from Farm King
products and we're confident that these new conveyors will build on the
success of our existing conveyor line."
    The Buhler Inland hay tools division is introducing the new 4500 Square
Bale Carrier. The new bale carrier features a host of innovative technology
including an in-cab monitor, new hydraulic system and smoother, more efficient
    Froese says, "The new 4500 Square Bale Carrier is an exciting change to
our line of bale carriers. We listened to customers' requests for smoother
operation and have taken it one step further by incorporating a user-friendly
in-cab monitor. The machine can be operated using factory pre-sets or can be
customized to meet the needs of the operator."
    The Buhler 1035 conveyor and 4500 Square Bale Carrier will be on display
June 20-22 at the Western Canada Farm Progress Show in Regina, SK. The 4500
Square Bale Carrier will be on display and participating in field
demonstrations at the Farm Progress Hay Expo in Westgate, IA on June 20-21.

    The 4500 Square Bale Carrier replaces the outgoing 4000 model and
features an all-new in-cab monitor that was not available on the previous
generation. The new monitor includes factory presets that allow the carrier to
be operated with factory pre-sets or customized to the user's preferences.

    Monitor menu options include:
    Diagnostic: Provides the status of seven sensors. When the machine is in
its neutral, or "Home" position, a quick check of all seven sensors will
indicate that the machine is ready to use.
    Auto: Select one of the preset bale sizes listed on the monitor and
indicates preference of single- or double-row stacking. The carrier is now
ready for use.
    Calibration: Fine-tune and customize carrier operation. Set grab arm
approach height, squeeze pressure and lift height in conjunction with a
pressure status bar on the monitor. Six memory slots are available to recall
operator preferences for various bale sizes.
    Manual: Manually operate each function of the bale carrier. Useful for
picking up a bale that is heavier than the others, or is a different size.
    The carrier arm has been further reinforced to enhance stability and
strength. The pick up sequence has been reduced to roughly 14-seconds,
compared to the 22-second cycle time of the outgoing model (depending on
tractor hydraulics).
