Waringa Distribution have announced the appointment of McIntosh & Son as the new Western Australian dealer for Elmer’s chaser bins.

Sam Abbott, Waringa Distribution General Manager, said the move was a win for both the Elmer’s brand and its customer base.

McIntosh & Son’s long-time relationship with Waringa Distribution, currently with the Agri-Spread and Highline product ranges, and the need to appoint a supportive dealer network in WA, were noted as the main drivers of the announcement.

“McIntosh & Son have extensive coverage in WA, so customers can have peace of mind that they can access their statewide parts facilities and service support,” Sam said.

“Having worked with the McIntosh & Son team for years now, we can be confident that our products are in good hands.”

Sam said that by allowing a dealer group to take the reins of parts, sales and field support of the chaser bins, Waringa Distribution can focus on their core business and product development.

“We can continue supporting our customers by adapting our products to suit Australian grower needs.”

“When we first took on Elmer’s Chaser Bins back in 2015, they were only available with transfer tracks or a fixed track option. We had a lot of demand for tandem axles, so pooled our development efforts to bring a tandem offering to market.”

In 2019, Waringa Distribution announced the Elmer’s Haulmaster tandem axle range, promising a high-capacity, heavy-duty chaser bin with a low-profile chassis frame.

“By providing four-wheel steering and excellent stability, we can deliver maximum manoeuvrability, minimal soil disturbance and reduced pressure on the axles,” Sam said of the tandem models.

McIntosh & Son Northern Group Dealer Principal, Anthony Ryan, welcomes the range, believing Elmer’s chaser bins to be leading the market in technology, capacity and performance.

“Elmer’s chaser bins are already popular with our customers.”

“Elmer’s and the team at Waringa [Distribution] have continued to make advancements to keep the bins at the top of their game,” Anthony said.

One such advancement was the Haulmaster Pro optional control system, available on the Haulmaster tandem range.

“The Haulmaster Pro features a joystick for operating the chaser bin and it’s exceptionally user-friendly.”

The joystick works with 5-point loadcells and a Haulmaster Connect tablet to give the operator maximum control over the auger while still being able to utilise up to 18T/min unloading speed.

Using the joystick, the operator can easily fold/unfold the auger with a quick double tap and operate the proportional 4-way spout and pivot. During fold, the spout and pivot also return to home position for secure transport.

Dandaragan farmer, David Brown, purchased an Elmer’s Haulmaster 41 tonne (T) tandem chaser bin in 2019 and has been impressed at how it had streamlined his farming operation.

“The whole machine works off this joystick, it makes the job much easier”, David said.

“Quick unloading, quick turnarounds, stable platform and surprisingly accurate”.

The Elmer’s Haulmaster range is available in 30T single axle, 30T & 36T transfer tracks, 30T, 36T & 41T tandem axle, and 46T, 55T & 63T fixed tracks. Orders are underway for 2022 harvest, and stock will be available through your local McIntosh & Son dealership in the new year.
