Event Description

LEMKEN CANADA is holding a Field Day for Ontario growers southwest of Mitchell on August 12 to unveil the new HELIODOR 9 compact disc harrow and demonstrate the full line of LEMKEN strategic tillage equipment.

 

After four years of research and testing, LEMKEN is introducing its next-generation HELIODOR compact disc. The HELIODOR 9, which replaces the HELIODOR 8, rolls out with larger 20-inch discs and more working widths and models to choose from. Moving to a 20-inch disc from the HELIODOR 8’s 18-inch discs gives the machine greater range of working depth—from 0.75 inches to 5 inches.

 

“The HELIODOR 9 is more versatile and comes with new 14 and 24 foot section widths, expanding the range of models from as small as 8 ft. to a very efficient 52 ft. for farmers wanting good acreage capacity,” says Jim Docking, LEMKEN Canada’s Ontario Sales representative. “This allows us to meet individual growers’ needs even more precisely than before.”

 

With the HELIODOR 9, growers have the option of controlling working depth on the go hydraulically with an in-cab monitor and controls. LEMKEN has also made it possible to adjust individual discs to deal with small compressed areas where tires and tracks have passed without affecting the rest of the discs, ensuring a uniform seedbed.

 

Growers will have the rare opportunity to see the HELIODOR 9 and other LEMKEN equipment in action in a morning and/or an afternoon demonstration at the Field Day. A LEMKEN training specialist from their factory and head office in Germany will offer information and answer producers’ questions.

 

Also demonstrated will be the RUBIN 9 and RUBIN 12 compact discs, the KARAT 9 cultivator, the ZIRKON 12 power harrow and DIAMANT ploughs, each demonstrating a specific strategic tillage practice.  A SOLITAIR seeder will be connected to a compact disc to show how LEMKEN machines prepare the seedbed and seed in a single pass. “We’ll be learning about the efficient use of high-speed conservation tillage and seeding technology, the machines themselves and the agronomic benefit of each strategic tillage practice,” says Docking.

 

LEMKEN Field Day will be held at Jim Docking farm - 6693 26 Line, Staffa, Ontario, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 12. Lunch is provided. Growers interested in attending can e-mail canada@lemken.com or call (800) 488-0115 to RSVP or confirm the date in the event of poor weather. Print a map by going to http://goo.gl/maps/NNLgP
