Listening to farmers is the foundation that Kinze is built upon. When farmers needed a better, more efficient way to transport large planters from field to field, Jon Kinzenbaw invented the rear-fold planter in 1975 that enabled producers to dramatically increase planting performance, speed and capacity. (See a full list of Kinze innovations here.)
Today, creating innovative solutions and the relentless pursuit of Excellence, continues to permeate all of us here at Kinze. We continuously evaluate farmers’ needs and monitor planting trends to improve our current products and develop new products. Earlier this spring, we added the bulk fill option to our 8-row 3500 planter and last fall we launched the new series of Single Auger grain carts, all to meet the needs of our customers and dealers.
It doesn’t stop there. We are working on future products and features. On August 9, we invited our dealers and their customers to Experience Kinze and gave them an exclusive sneak preview of seven new products and features that we will be launching over the next year. Experience Kinze included current and new product education, a presentation by Agronomist Ken Ferrie, a factory tour and future product previews.
At the conclusion of the event, guests talked one-on-one with our engineers, service team and district sales managers. They asked product questions and discussed their operation’s needs. It was a great opportunity for them to meet the individuals behind the products and provide direct feedback. The event went exceptionally well and we look forward to showing you what we are working on!
One product that we showed during the event is a prototype planter. It will also be at the Farm Progress Show! Stop by our booth #939 during the show and give us your feedback! Let us know if the prototype planter will add value to your farm operation. What do you like about it? What is it missing? Additionally, we will be launching new cart tracks made by Camso and a new cart joystick at the Farm Progress Show. We are excited to see you there!
