Muddy River Agricultural staff Jason Lummis, Steve Robertson and Shane Christian won Best Large Outdoor Commercial Site at Henty Machinery’s Field Days.

A Mooroopna-based equipment distributor was among the winners of the 2022 Henty Machinery Field Days Exhibitor Awards.

Short-haul agricultural equipment distributor Muddy River Agricultural, of Mooroopna, won the Best Outdoor Large Commercial category, while Charles Sturt University’s education and research facility, Wagga Wagga, won the Best Outdoor General award.

The awards were presented on Wednesday, September 21 by Belinda Anderson, General Manager of Field Days.

Ms Anderson said exhibitor awards encourage venue owners to strive for similar ideals during field days.

Judges Daryl Thomson and Bec Clancy covered the 14 km of exterior storefront as well as interior venues, evaluating visual presentation, signage, layout and innovation.

Ms Clancy said the Muddy River Farm Site had a great visual presence and layout with eye-catching white picket fences, a defined entrance, flag poles, marquee and good signage.

Muddy River Agricultural NSW Territory Manager Steve Robertson said the design of the site was a team effort after exhibiting on numerous field days.

“The owner of Muddy River wanted to make a statement at field days this year, so we went with the white picket fence and layout, and it worked really well,” Robertson said.

“Having the fence makes it feel more welcoming and everyone liked it.”

Mr Robertson said demand was extremely strong on opening day for sprayers and tillage machines, with strong sales and a follow-up survey.

Kari Sattler, National Sales Manager at MacDon, with the 2022 Henty Machine of the Year award.

Meanwhile, a flexible mat offering more capacity, speed and flexibility won the 2022 Henty Machine of the Year award.

The MacDon FD2 Flex Draper, presented by MacDon Australia, impressed the judges with its innovation, design and engineering.

The John Deere See & Spray Select presented by Hutcheon and Pearce was highly praised.

A total of 22 state-of-the-art agricultural machinery and equipment were featured in the Henty Machine of the Year.

Announced on the opening day of Field Days, September 20, this award is given to the most outstanding new agricultural machine exhibited during Field Days.

Judge Warren Scheetz said this year’s prize included entries from 2021 and 2022, and the task of selecting a winner was a difficult one.

“The MacDon has increased draper front performance by 20% to match the ever-increasing high capacities of modern headers,” he said.

“MacDon has also increased the machine’s flexibility by up to 70% over previous models, as well as ground following capabilities.

“It’s a simple, well-constructed mechanical design that’s easy to use.”

Scheetz said the John Deere See & Spray Select system uses a combination of cameras and processes to detect weeds before activating the nozzles required to apply the chemical with high precision.

“This reduces chemical applications by up to 77% compared to traditional coverage, reducing input costs and chemical usage,” he said.

If you can jailbreak a phone, you can jailbreak a tractor. And if you can jailbreak a John Deere tractor, you can play Loss on its touch screen.

At DefCon in August, Australian hacker Sick Codes demonstrated how to do just that on John Deere’s 2630 and 4240 tractor models.

Although playing a video game on a tractor’s computer system might seem like a stunt, the demonstration raised important questions about John Deere‘s cybersecurity practices – questions made all the more urgent by its ongoing efforts to pivot its business model to software and digital subscriptions.

The company unveiled an autonomous tractor at CES earlier this year and is investing billions of dollars to make agricultural equipment connected to the Internet and partially automated, capable of making decisions based on the analysis of data sets based on the clouds managed by the John Deere Operations Center. By 2030, CEO John May expects 10% of the company’s annual revenue to come from software subscription fees.

“It’s a fairly insecure technology. This might be okay if the tractor wasn’t connected to the internet,” Kyle Wiens, co-founder and CEO of iFixit and right-to-repair advocate, told us. “The national security problem we have here is that John Deere owns most of the market, and they have decided, in their infinite wisdom, to connect most of the agricultural machinery in our country to the Internet.”

Last month’s presentation wasn’t the first time Sick Codes had bypassed the agricultural giant’s security. Last year, he hacked into the company’s mainframe, prompting the Department of Homeland Security to get involved, he told Emerging Tech Brew.

In response to questions, John Deere spokeswoman Jen Hartmann pointed us to previous statements about cybersecurity.

Growing pains

Going from a tractor company to “a data collection conglomerate, whatever,” is a steep learning curve, Sick Codes said, and in its view, John Deere has made a few missteps.

“They have a responsibility to take care of the entire food chain,” he said. “They have insane responsibilities and they are also listed on the stock exchange. And they just don’t cut their weight.

Earlier this year, the FBI warned that farmers and other agricultural businesses could be attractive targets for ransomware attacks.

If a bad actor “wanted to take over American agriculture, all you would have to do was run those tractors to the redline and burn out their engines. You wouldn’t even have to drive them” , said Wiens.

Companies often have bug bounty programs that reward external security researchers and hackers for finding security issues in their products. John Deere established one last year, but the success of the program remains uncertain, according to Wiens. John Deere declined to specify how many bug bounty it has handled under its responsible disclosure program.

Write the pros: Don’t entrust your cybersecurity to amateurs. The NFL called on Cisco to defend its network operations before, during and after the Super Bowl LVI game. They are working on a repeatable and portable security platform for future NFL events. Find out how the NFL builds its defense off the field when you click here.

Automakers are also facing new cybersecurity challenges, but the standards that are gaining acceptance in the electric vehicle industry, for example, are not yet well understood or regulated for other autonomous and connected machines. , said David Chaddock, director of cybersecurity at consultancy West Monroe. we.

“When you talk about all the gear, it’s almost on a spectrum more towards the Wild West,” he said. “Autonomous vehicles, which may or may not be electric, that kind of stuff, there’s currently no real federal ‘you must’ regulations.”

The industry also faces the potential challenge of hiring software developers or cybersecurity experts at legacy companies that may not be perceived as high-tech, Chaddock said.

“Right now, at every level, you have a talent shortage. When it comes to cybersecurity, it’s amplified even more,” Chaddock told us.

Hartmann told us in an emailed statement that the company has opened two “tech hubs” in Austin, TX and Chicago, as well as working with “several universities” to help attract new tech talent.

Zoom out

Beyond safety concerns, Deere’s digitization has put new pressure on a pre-existing problem: long-standing frustration that the company has limited farmers’ ability to repair their own equipment.

Hartmann said via email that in May the company made its diagnostic service tool available to customers and independent repair shops, and that in 2023 it plans to introduce an “enhanced customer solution which includes a mobile device interface and the ability to directly download secure software updates”. integrated controllers on certain John Deere equipment with 4G connections.”

The diagnostic software starts at $1,200 and is a limited version of what Deere technicians themselves have.

“John Deere has diagnostic software on the laptops that their technicians have that they won’t provide to farmers,” Wiens said. “So the tractor’s computer will see, ‘Hey, this sensor’s reading is out of calibration.’ And the tractor just won’t start.

Wiens compared the tractor to an iPhone before the App Store, because John Deere only allows its own software to run on its machines.

“If you could, imagine you could create your own version of this diagnostic software tool, run it on the tractor, and you’d be good to go. But the tractor is locked. Thus, being able to install and run Loss– it’s a stupid example, but it shows that we can run arbitrary code on this thing,” he said.

,


One of my dearest friends passed away over a month ago. Today would have been his 49th birthday.
Kimberly Brown committed suicide.
Nobody knows why.
She wanted to do it.
She drove from the middle of Jefferson County to the middle of Crystal Beach – past The Big Store.
It’s a long journey when you know that in the end you’re going to commit suicide.
We met at Lamar-Beaumont University in the offices of the university press.
I may have known her two days ago when she asked me to go see a ballet of “Romeo and Juliet” at the Julie Rogers Theatre.
I may have been the first or the 31st person she asked, but I agreed.
Five or 10 minutes into the ballet, Kimberly leaned over to me and said, “When do they start doing the dialogue?”
“I don’t think they recite dialogues in the ballets.”
Another 10 minutes pass and these dancers don’t even speak Shakespeare.
“Yeah. They don’t talk in the ballets.
Afterwards, we met in a cafe in the old town. There were no other customers, just the two guys running the place.
It was ridiculously quiet and other than our drink order, Kimberly and I barely spoke.
I was intimidated by the silence.
I took her home and instead of going straight to Kimberly I asked if we could sit outside and talk.
We sat on that little concrete porch and had the conversation we could have had at the cafe.
Kimberly admitted she was also intimidated by the silence.
Our conversation was wonderful and amazing and I don’t remember anything.
But Kimberly did one thing that I will never forget. She sang for me. Why? I do not remember. I remember the song – “John Deere Green” by Joe Diffie.
From that moment, I became addicted.
Here’s another – Kimberly and I went to New Orleans to see Britney Spears.
Britney is the best. Shut up. Let it go.
We were in the main hall of the New Orleans Arena – now the Smoothie King Center.
I see an older man – a mop of white hair – in a gray suit. He is likely standing with his wife and two teenage daughters. All three women are platinum blondes. The whole family is dressed — impeccable.
Their attire is best suited to church or Sunday brunch, but not to a Britney Spears concert.
The man turns around and I recognize him.
I leaned over to Kimberly and said, “Kimberly. That man over there is Edwin Edwards.
“Who is Edwin Edwards?
“Former Governor of Louisiana. He resigned because his administration was so corrupt.
“How do you recognize these people? »
We approached Edwin Edwards – no one else was. Britney fans, strangely, don’t follow corrupt Louisiana politics.
“Governor. Edwards?”
It was spinning as if floating.
“Hello, Governor. I just wanted to say ‘hello’ and shake your hand.
“Thanks very much.”
“And this is my friend Kimberly.”
Then he turns to Kimberly, holds out his hand, and in a way that only a corrupt Southern politician could pull off, he says to her, “And what a beautiful friend you are.”
Kimberly is unlike anyone else.
It’s an easy thing to say. We all have special people in our lives who break and hold our hearts.
Most of them never know what they are doing to us.
She’s not perfect.
As a daughter, sister, and mother, Kimberly could be difficult, but you still loved Kimberly.
People cannot be explained or understood.
As you read this, the person next to you will never be able to tell you who they really are. If they could, you really could never understand.
Sometimes we can all feel lost. We can all feel alone. It’s not unusual for any of us.
Know this, there is love in this world for you and some of that love exists around you every day from all who populate your world.
Please know that you are loved.
Be kind – to others and to yourself.

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The report “U.S. Used Construction Equipment Market – Strategic Assessment and Forecast 2022-2028” has been added to from ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The US used construction equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.97% during the period 2022-2028.

The used construction equipment market in the United States is expected to reach 45,766 units by 2028. US government investment in upgrading infrastructure and renewable energy projects is expected to support demand for used construction equipment. opportunity in the United States over the forecast period (2022 -2028).

USED ​​CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT MARKET: HIGHLIGHTS

The earthmoving segment holds the largest used construction equipment market share in the United States. Other segments including graders, skid steer loaders, bulldozers and trenchers held the largest share of the earthmoving segment in 2021.

Infrastructure modernization projects such as renovation of commercial buildings, railway stations, airports, repair of runways and extension of roads and bridges in rural areas are driving high demand for used construction equipment on the American market.

The government aims to generate 95 GW of electricity from renewable energy resources by 2025. To achieve this goal, the government is setting up wind farms and solar power plants across the country, which is expected to support the demand for electricity. second-hand equipment because the new equipment supply chain is still in the recovery phase, so used equipment meets the needs of the industry.

Less expensive equipment with high operational requirements and low service life such as excavators, backhoe loaders and forklifts are expected to grow faster during the forecast period than expensive equipment such as graders and cranes with low operational requirements and long service life.

The recovery of the supply chain for new construction equipment after the pandemic and the rise in rental markets pose a major threat to demand for used construction equipment in the US market. However, used equipment is expected to remain popular among small contractors for a short range of projects due to diverse portfolios, low acquisition cost and good resale value.

Disruption to the supply chain for new equipment during the pandemic continues to drive demand for the used construction equipment market in the United States

COVID-19 has had a positive impact on the demand for used construction equipment in the US market. The supply of new equipment has been interrupted due to the disruption of the supply chain caused by the lockdown measures taken by the US government. Companies were not in favor of large investments. These factors have triggered the demand for used equipment in various sectors such as construction, agriculture, mining and forestry.

In 2021, U.S. government investments in the transportation industry, including redevelopment projects for economic recovery, were expected to support demand for used construction equipment. However, the volume of used equipment sales declined in 2021 and a sharp drop in used equipment sales was observed in the 0-10 age group. Companies reduced their purchases of used equipment to avoid more aging machines in their fleet, as the supply of new equipment was low even in 2021. This led to price spikes and a reduction in the volume of used equipment on the American market.

Used equipment is an excellent choice for contractors for short-term projects. Various short-term repair and refit projects are awarded to contractors who prefer to use used construction equipment due to its quick availability, diverse portfolio and low acquisition cost to complete the project and resell the material then.

Motor graders are one of the most expensive pieces of equipment ranging from $200,000 to $500,000, with an average life expectancy of around 30 years. There has been an increase in the demand for used graders in the US market in 2020 and 2021. The equipment operates for a short time on construction sites compared to other earthmoving equipment such as excavators and backhoe loaders. It is therefore a popular choice for buyers of used equipment due to factors such as the high price of new graders, low hours of operation on the job site and long life. Due to its long life, the equipment can be resold many times.

Rise in demand for used equipment in the agriculture and forestry sectors due to low purchasing capacity of farmers in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Construction equipment such as mini excavators and loaders are used in the agricultural and forestry industries. Equipment used for land leveling, crop loading, fence construction and land clearing activities in agriculture and forestry. The demand for used equipment in the forestry and agriculture sectors had increased in 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the US economy. The country’s agricultural sector is underperforming due to reduced demand and labor shortages. Farmers’ net income decreased by 9% in 2020. Reduced purchasing ability of farmers triggers demand for used equipment in the US market.

Shift in focus to renewable energy resources triggers demand for used mini excavators and cranes in US market

The US government is focused on renewable energy sources and aims to produce 25 GW of clean energy by 2025. In January 2022, the government approved 18 onshore projects of 4.17 GW and 54 priority projects, adding 27 .5 GW of clean energy. According to the Energy Information Administration, solar power capacity in the United States is expected to increase by 21 GW in 2022 and 25 GW in 2023. Various solar and wind power projects are progressing in different locations across the country in 2022.

The demand for used construction equipment for these projects is expected to increase sharply due to its rapid availability compared to new equipment. The supply of new equipment has been interrupted due to COVID-19 in 2020. The second wave of infection in 2021 across the United States has worsened the situation for the manufacture of new construction equipment. Thus, the demand for used construction equipment is expected to increase for these near-term renewable energy projects. The demand for used cranes and mini excavators is expected to rise sharply for solar and wind farm projects.

Rising prices for used construction equipment to devalue demand for used equipment

There is a steady increase in prices for used construction equipment in the US market. According to Ritchie Bros, there has been a 16% increase in prices for large earthmoving equipment such as excavators, bulldozers and graders. A similar price spike was seen in aerial equipment such as cranes, forklifts and aerial platforms and medium earthmoving equipment such as backhoe loaders, mini diggers and trenchers.

b) A similar trend is observed in the first quarter of 2022; prices for large earthworks, medium earthworks and aerial equipment increased by 20%, 37% and 35% respectively. The demand for construction equipment has increased due to increased investment in infrastructure projects across the country. However, the supply of new equipment has not been restored in 2021 and volume sales of used equipment have declined. This mismatch between demand and supply for used equipment is driving up used equipment prices in the US market in 2021.

New Emission Standard and Rise in Construction Site Accident Cases May Hamper Demand for Used Construction Equipment

The concern of the American government for the air pollution pushes it to take the necessary measures to control it. The country now follows the Tier 4 emission standard in 2022. The United States is expected to launch the Tier 5 emission standard by 2024, which focuses on reducing nitrogen oxide and particulate emissions. Therefore, the upgrade of emission standards in the United States is expected to negatively impact the demand for larger used equipment, which is older used equipment in the market.

b) There is an increase in work injury cases in the construction industry in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), nearly 10 million workers were employed in the construction industry in the United States in 2020. The Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that 1,061 construction workers were killed in 2020, which represents 20% of all work-related deaths in 2020. the United States. The report also revealed that 60% of all fatalities on construction sites were crane-related.

COVID-19 triggers online bidding process for used equipment sales

COVID-19 has accelerated a new trend in online auctions in the used heavy construction equipment market. In 2020, there was a 35% increase in website traffic and a 71% increase in bidder registrations. This move to an online process expands the reach of the used equipment market and creates new data analysis opportunities for sales companies. Equipment sales rose sharply in 2020 due to online auctions provided by major auction companies such as Ritchie Bros & Sandhill.

Equipment owners could have good information and help them understand the best time to sell or buy equipment based on machine type, time of use and machine age.
