    “Harvesting subterranean clover would have to be one of the most unappealing jobs going around, so anything that makes it easier is more than welcome. This year we kitted out two units (2 tractors pulling 3 harvesters each) with Farmscan monitors. I had researched various makes and models and nothing competed with Farmscan for our situation. The gear had to be tough as we are dealing with the three main ingredients for breakdown – heat, dust, and vibration. We equipped each harvester with a bin level sensor and a thrasher shaft sensor all linked to a Jackal monitor in the tractors. We have been that impressed with the durability and ease of operation of this system, and it has helped no end monitoring thrasher speed to match conditions. Farmscan have been a pleasure to deal with, and helping me design the system and doing it the most efficient way.”
