John Deere introduces the rugged, reliable 459E round balers

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest New economy balers feature Diamond Belts, BaleTrak Pro Monitor and moreJohn Deere adds the new 459E Baler to its hay and forage product lineup for 2016. The economical 459E Round Baler features the Edge-to-Edge net wrap option and other performance features that hay producers will appreciate.According to Jeremy Unruh, product line marketing manager for John Deere, the new rugged balers are designed to make tight 4- by 5-ft. bales for higher quality hay. “Our 459E Round Balers are equipped with six Diamond Belts, which cover more than 90 percent of the bale chamber, helping to reduce leaf loss while improving bale quality,” says Unruh. “The small diameter pickup also ensures the crop is fed to the bale chamber with reduced leaf loss, resulting in densely packed, consistent sized bales.”The 459E is available with two wrap options: either net or twine. The baler also comes with the BaleTrak Pro Monitor that allows the operator to both monitor and control important baler functions conveniently from the tractor seat.Another added feature is an adjustable hitch, which helps operators attach the baler to the tractor drawbar with ease at an ideal height of 16-18 inches for optimal performance.In addition, producers can bale at higher speeds with the 459E Edge-to-Edge net wrap option. Compared to twine, baling with net wrap is not only 75 percent faster and more efficient, it also results in 30-60 percent less spoilage. That means producers end up with more, higher quality forage at feeding time from the tightly- wrapped bales that are easier to handle and feed.“The 459E Baler is compatible with many tractor sizes, is easy to setup and operate and is a great fit for many beef, dairy, equine and haying operations,” adds Unruh. “Combine that with the rugged features of the baler, customers will get exceptional baling performance at an economical price.”For more information on the new 459E Baler, see your local John Deere dealer or visit www.JohnDeere.com/Ag.last_img read more

‘IED’ destroyed on J&K highway

first_imgA major tragedy was averted on Monday with the timely detection of a suspected improvised explosive device (IED) along the Jammu-Poonch national highway, prompting suspension of traffic for nearly one and a half hours, officials said. A bottle filled with liquid material and a polybag filled with some solid material was found by the roadside near Kallar chowk along the highway in the morning, Rajouri SSP Yougal Manhas said. He said an Army unit noticed the suspicious material around 7.30 a.m. and subsequently the bomb disposal squad destroyed the IED on the spot. A police team headed by in-charge of Chingus Chatyari police post and Sub-Inspector M.D. Khan reached the spot soon after the Army flashed an alert and enforced closure of traffic on particular stretch. However, the traffic resumed around 10 a.m. after the bomb disposal squad completed its action, Mr. Manhas said. The device was suspected to be planted by some anti-national elements, he said. ‘Timely action’“Timely action by the alert jawans of Army averted any untoward incident,” the SSP said, adding that a probe into the matter has been started with the Deputy Superintendent of Police (Headquarters), Govind Rattan, personally conducting the investigation. On May 22, the police busted a major militant hideout in the same region (Chatyari forest) and recovered a huge cache of arms and ammunition, including four Kalashnikov assault rifles and 11 pistols.last_img read more

Amid doping scandal, skeleton federation suspends 4 Russians

first_imgQC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort The IBSF isn’t waiting.“I understand that it was a difference of culture and that the Russians don’t believe they did anything wrong,” U.S. women’s skeleton veteran Katie Uhlaender said after the IOC decision to strip the medals and issue the Olympic bans was announced Wednesday. “But this was the only way to fix it.”Uhlaender will be promoted to the bronze medal spot once Nikitina, as the IOC has ordered, surrenders what had been her bronze from Sochi and the IBSF updates the results. Tretiakov was the men’s gold-medalist; the revised order of finish for that event will now have Latvia’s Martins Dukurs getting gold, Matt Antoine of the U.S. bumped up to silver and Latvia’s Tomass Dukurs, Martins’ brother, will become the bronze medalist.Uhlaender, who was fourth, will soon officially be third behind gold medalist Lizzy Yarnold of Britain and silver medalist Noelle Pikus-Pace of the U.S.Sliders have lauded the IOC for doing the right thing, though noted that racers like Uhlaender and Tomass Dukurs — even once they have medals in hand — will never be able to replicate the moment on a podium that they should have had in Sochi.ADVERTISEMENT Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Elena Nikitina of Russia celebrates her bronze medal win during the women’s skeleton competition at the 2014 Winter Olympics, in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia. The International Olympic Committee has banned four more Russians for doping at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, all competing in the sliding sport of skeleton and includes men’s gold medalist Alexander Tretyakov and women’s bronze medalist Nikitina. AP FILE PHOTOThe two Russians who had their medals from the Sochi Games stripped because of doping have been barred from competing in World Cup races, at least temporarily.It’s the latest sanction against Aleksandr Tretiakov and Elena Nikitina, who had their medals — gold for Tretiakov, bronze for Nikitina — taken away Wednesday (Thursday Manila time) after it was determined they were part of Russia’s state-sponsored doping program at the 2014 Olympics.

Along with Tretiakov and Nikitina, Mariia Orlova and Olga Potylitsyna — who have been racing on the lesser-tier Intercontinental Cup Circuit this season — were also banned, just as they were by the IOC.
