Henty Machine of the Year Award

Bourgault won the 2017 Henty Machine of the Year Award with the 3420 Paralink disc drill.

This is a “farmer’s choice” award presented to the most outstanding new agricultural machine exhibited at the field days.

It is judged by an independent panel of regional primary producers.

In many cases the winning machine has gone on to become a standard piece of equipment on farms throughout Australia.

Judging criteria include the machine’s purpose and suitability, scope of application, construction (durability and design), ease of maintenance and service, ease of operation (including operator safety and comfort), ease of adjustment, availability of parts and overall value for money.

The Australian market release date for 2018 entries must be between September 25, 2017 and September 17, 2018.

The machine must be on site for judging on the Monday before the field days start.

Tractors and harvesters are not eligible.

Entrants must be registered exhibitors for the 2018 Henty Machinery Field Days.

HOW TO ENTER: Simply fill out the details in the application package when you register for HMFD 2017.
