Thought for the Week

"Thinking positively isn't about expecting the best to happen every time, but accepting that whatever happens is the best for this moment."

Sprayers have gotten faster, but are they better?
The Western Producer
Farmers should expect more from their sprayers. Tom Wolf of Agrimetrix told farmers attending the FarmTech show in Edmonton that the sprayers on the market today still depend largely on technology from the 1950s. Wolf said the biggest changes were made in the 1990s when air induction and pulse systems that turn individual nozzles on and off were added or refined. Air induction nozzles reduce spray pressure at the tip and create coarse and very coarse spray. This improves leaf coverage while reducing the number of droplets in the 200 micron range.

Growing Bobcat-Doosan equipment dealer tracks profitability of service trucks

Steve Wurtzel, Operations Manager of Carleton Equipment, a five-location Bobcat and Doosan dealership headquartered in Kalamazoo, MI, is thrilled that he now has a tool to monitor what’s selling and moving on each of his 12 service trucks. "Each truck supports a separate inventory, which can be about $15,000." To track the inventory and profitability of his mobile service trucks, Wurtzel is using ASPEN Alternate Stocking Locations (ASL), an added functionality of Charter Software's ASPEN dealer management system. Using ASL, dealers can also monitor the profitability or shrinkage of inventory carried on service trucks or stored at consigned or off-site inventory locations.

In the beginning Karcher pressure washers were represented as a small portion of an agriculture dealership in Brunner, ON. As the Karcher business evolved with a multi-location sales focus within the former D&S Downham Equipment (now Connect Equipment), Karcher North America chose the Karcher division to represent their complete line in Southwestern Ontario. Expanding business into this much larger area meant that changes were necessary.
