If you’re looking for quality feed mixer wagons and telehandlers in Australia, then look no further than Faresin Industries S.p.A, now proudly distributed by Chesterfield Australia.
Chesterfield Australia is a strong family owned business, having been in the agricultural market since 1963.
In 2014, the company developed a relationship with the Faresin family out of Breganze in Italy – who have been manufacturers and market leaders in the industry since 1973.
That relationship has flourished over time, and Faresin products are now distributed through 49 dealer locations across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
In 2019, Faresin introduced the latest technology and design for feed mixer wagons with Precision Feed (PF) models.
This range offers product capacity and model combinations from 11.0 to 46.0 cubic metre capacities.
The Faresin PF Line can be customised to suit requirements of most users with wagons offered in single, twin or triple augers, and single, tandem or triple axels with or without suspension and brakes.
The option range is impressive – buyers can elect from stationary, trailed, truck mounted, 4WD and self-propelled variations.
Faresin feed mixer wagons can also be supplied with multiple feed out combinations to suit different needs and applications.
The PF Line offers the standard front door discharge onto a rubber feed-out belt that will operate left or right as needed.
This configuration has the 1250mm elevator to feed to trough on the righthand side and can also be fitted with additional 3200mm elevator on a second door to reach in-field cattle feeders.
Finding a manufacturer able to meet the demands of the Australian market required a fair amount of research by Chesterfield.
The considerations that needed to be taken into account included the design itself, the engineering of the components as well as the quality of the build materials.
For example, Faresin feed wagons make use of S355 steel – one of the hardest wearing steels that can be cold roll formed in the thicknesses that feed wagons require.
This superior build quality helps prevent creases in bin walls, which can cause high heat and wear points.
One of the most significant factors was the warranty of the product.
Chesterfield are extremely satisfied with the factory support they receive from engineering, as well as parts back up.
The strength of this offering has allowed Chesterfield Australia to offer the warranty direct, without the limitations of factory controlled terms and conditions.
Any problems that may occur are able to be dealt with quickly and smoothly and resolved locally with the Chesterfield After Market Support Manager.
Chesterfield are committed to customer satisfaction, equipment performance, and after-market support.
The company upholds those commitments with ongoing sales and service training for dealers, in field evaluations of conditions, and applications to fit specific needs and requirements.
Faresin is not new to the Australian market – it has been present in Australia since 2004, when the first TMRV 2200 mixer was delivered to Southern NSW.
This mixer is still on farm and working today. The product is now imported solely by Chesterfield and is distributed via 49 dealer locations.
Chesterfield carries substantial equipment inventory to keep up with demand and conducts regular dealer sales and service training events to keep at the forefront of current market trends.
With over 100 years of experience shared between Chesterfield and Faresin, customers can be assured and secure in their investment.
Chesterfield add that owning a Faresin feed wagon provides you with a proven pedigree of experience and engineering, and a feed wagon that can and will meet your expectations for many years to come.
