We are beggining to "Hot Rod" combines, we replace prone to fail factory parts with our customized parts or other aftermarket parts.


 There is no reason a machine will not last until 10,000 hrs. By determining which parts were designed to fail and modifying them we extend the life of the machine and the profitability of the farm. We would like to hire a young worker to apprentice for a welder/mechanic. See Careers.

Why bring your combine to us instead of a dealership? Two reasons, one in a dealership the service department is just a extension of the sales department, the objective is to sell a new peice of financed equipment. Two, a dealership will just replace a defectively designed peice with a NEW defectively designed peice, we will re-design to make the part last much longer or be easily changed.

Historyically we bought new machines as they we larger and had more capacity but finally we have reached the point where bigger is too big. Class 8 combines with 36 ft headers and 600 hp tractors are the most efficent machines.

 

 



We redesign the feeder house to provide better crop flow, make it rock proof and get more longivity from components. To do this we install new style feeder chains, install our custom made teflon slider packages, install thick metal below, have the drive system modified to provide longer shafts into the beater and feeder chain drive and install grease nipples.



The OEMs do not actually make many of the components on their machines, we source the true manufacturer of the component which will be about 1/3 the cost charged by a dealership. In this case a Carter electric fuel pump.



We will redesign and or replace most components in a combine. Here we have pulled the rotor and replaced all internal wearing parts. The old parts are examined as to why they failed, then modified and built to better than new specs. When the time comes they will be re-installed.
