The bin worked so well after Des had designed and drawn it with a piece of chalk on the concrete floor, that word soon spread and orders started to flow in from all the neighbours.
The entire range of Chaser Bins and Field Bins sported new sleek curves, intelligent updates to the chassis and augers, were built stronger and better all round, giving them a fresh lease of life.
Miitze Industries was purchased in 2009, as a result of this Finch Engineering immediately expanded and enhanced its product offering to include a wide range of augers, from the pencil auger to a sophisticated fully hydraulic, self-propelled system, silo storage and truck bulk bins. Through this Finch Engineering now had all areas of grain handling covered, from storage through to planting and harvesting. They had become the “Grain Handling Specialists”
Another addition to the extensive range of bins was the 4MC, a huge haulout bin dedicated to controlled traffic of 4 metres.
Extending the reach for controlled traffic farming systems, Finch Engineering launched the Controlled Traffic Conveyor System, a full length hydraulically driven conveyor that extends out to bridge the gap between chaser bin and harvester unload auger.
