Yetter compact residue managers incorporate new, convenient features

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Yetter Manufacturing is releasing new product features for the Short Titan series. The product models with the new features include the 2967-029A/2967-097A Short Titan™ with operating widths of 22–40ʺ and the 2967-013A / 2967-014A Short Narrow Titan with operating widths of 15ʺ–22ʺ.The Short Titan series’ new design has features that allow for more convenient and faster installation of the Precision Planting CleanSweep. The 2967-029A / 2967-013A now have welded ear tabs on the faceplate, whereas the previous model required the pivot tab for the cylinder to be bolted on. The redesigned handle also provides a contact point when the residue managers reach maximum travel and a mounting point for the cylinder.The 2967-097A/2967-014A include these improved features as well, but they have also been designed to become more universal by utilizing the 2966-097 mounting kit. The 2967-097A / 2967-014A are the combination of the 2967-029A /2967-013A with the 2966-097 kit, which is the mounting plate with hardware. As a result, should a grower choose to switch planters (for example, John Deere, Kinze, CNH, or AGCO), instead of purchasing new residue managers, they now can transfer their existing models to the new planter. The 2966-097 also allows for faceplate-mounted attachments to be mounted on CNH planters by only purchasing the mounting kit.With the new design our customers will spend less time installing the CleanSweep cylinder to their residue managers or changing brands of planters by making the residue managers more universal with the faceplate mounting kit.last_img read more

Crowley Extends Wärtsiläs ATB Maintenance Deal

first_imgImage Courtesy: CrowleyThe technology group Wärtsilä has won an expanded deal for the maintenance of eleven articulated tug barges (ATBs) owned and operated by US-based Crowley. The agreement, signed in December 2017, extends the original contract term from 2019 to 2023, and covers the maintenance of 22 Wärtsilä engines installed on board the eleven vessels.The contract is Wärtsilä’s first maintenance agreement to cover complete propulsion systems, including seals and bearings. “Our agreement allows us to execute carefully planned maintenance schedules, customize scopes, and achieve constant cooperation to complete our ATB dry docks on schedule, ensuring the reliability and efficiency of our vessels’ operations,” Crowley Engineering Director Marc Aikin said.Sean Carey, Services Unit Director, USA, Wärtsilä Services, added that there was a growing interest in comprehensive maintenance agreements from companies as such arrangements allow them to focus on their core business.ATBs consist of a tank vessel (barge) and a large, powerful tug that is positioned in a notch in the stern of the barge. It has a hinged connection system that allows the ocean-going tug to connect to the notch in the stern, enabling the tug to propel and maneuver the barge. This allows movement in one axis, or plane, in the critical area of fore and aft pitch.With the pending acquisition of three tankers from SeaRiver Maritime, Crowley will operate 40 Jones Act qualified large petroleum transportation vessels in the United States with a combined capacity of more than 12 million barrels.last_img read more
