Innovations, Inventions & Awards

Double Race
Murray Sheep Handler

Won the Sheep Handling Equipment Award at Dowerin Field Days in 1986

Spring lift
Cam lift Field bins

Back in the 90’s all field bins used a crank lever to lift off the ground for transport. These were extremely dangerous because the handle generated  speed as the bin was lowered so we developed a lift that was less dangerous because the cam has a constant force while lowering. nb/ Care still has to be taken to make sure the handle doesn’t slip from your grasp.

In 2006 we added a spring which became the first ever self lifting field bins.

"Easy Hitch"
Easy lift Field bin hitches.

The Easy Hitch was the first self lowering field bin hitch on the market with the idea come from a couple farming in Coorow at a Dowerin Field Day. The brief was to invent a way to lower the front of field bins so they could be filled without unhitching the tractor which often causes bins to swing sideways taking out the operators leg when a wheel rolls into a hole. This was our first Patent and won The Best New Invention and New Release awards at Dowerin and Newdegate field days awards 

25t Chase Bin
Round chase bins 25t
The first 3 barrel cleaner heading to Carnamah
DE Engineers rotary seed cleaner

In 2000 I was asked to develop a seed cleaner for on farm use and was told by 2 Beverley farmers that it must keep up with a header but not cost $80,000 as were the machines made at the time.

So after being dragged across paddocks to see some existing & home made cleaners DE Engineers took up the task. We are now the largest seed cleaning manufacturer in Australia, with cleaners able to clean seed & “scalp” larger trash off in one operation faster and at a fraction of the cost of other machines.

The seedcleaner also won the Farm Innovation award at Dowerin and Best New Invention and New Release awards at Newdegate field days.

 

Twin Tow gearboxes
Tandem field bins

When a customer told me at a Newdegate Field Day  that he had two of our field bins and wanted to know how he could hook them in tandem so he could store 60t, tow and and operate with one tractor? The idea was born and the following year we built our first Twin Tow field bins of which we sell around 20 each year.

Winning silos

Spiral silos won the New Invention and New Release awards at the Newdegate field days. 

 

Bigger silos
260t Spiral silos
35hp with electric clutch
Engine drive field bins
Feed ring on chains
Sheep feeder with floating feed ring

In 2002 we added an adjustable ring  to our range of self feeders for sheep because the feeds gap on all round feeders could not be easily adjusted as the entire body (often full of feed) needed to be raised to do so.

Lick style feeders
Sheep feeder 'Lick style' feed ring

Years later in 2013 we changed the feed tray to make a ‘lick style’ feeder with a ‘vee’ shaped gap and a feed tray that slopes up not down.
