Our best wishes go out to both Bill Hiibner and Gordon Hahn on their recent retirements. Maintenance Supervisor Bill Hiibner retires after starting with Degelman over 33 years ago. Fabrication Tech Gordon Hahn retires after 39 years of dedication. We wish both of these outstanding members of the Degelman team nothing but the best in their well earned retirement.
As summer winds down and harvest goes into full swing, we want to thank everyone who came out to our U.S. Summer shows and stopped by the booth. We experienced all time best traffic at Wisconsin Farm Tech Days, FarmFest, Empire Farm Days, and the Farm Progress Show.
The Pro-Till was on display for the first time at all of these shows, and our "monster" didn't disappoint. After years of No-Till applications throughout the Midwest, there will be some serious discussions being made this fall on the future of high speed tillage on grower's fields.
Despite the rainy weather, Degelman enjoyed a successful, busy week at the Western Canadian Farm Progress Show in Regina, SK.
In between the rain, Degelman may have experienced the most active show in recent history. Many people stopped by to take a look at the impressive equipment on hand, including our 40 foot Pro-Till high speed tillage machine, our 64 foot land roller, and the show stopping 100 foot Strawmaster Plus heavy harrow.
Thanks to everyone who took time to stop by and visit with us, and we will see you on the next stop on our summer show circuit in Redwood Falls, MN for the annual Farmfest show on August 5th.
Argo Kukk from Agri Partner, an Estonian Degelman dealer, has sold the first Signature series rock picker in his area of Tartu and sent us some feedback.
Argo was originally a bit afraid of big iron rocks that needed to be picked, but found quickly that the Signature Series handles the rocks very well. Spectators watching the first showing were impressed.
Argo mentioned that a lot of companies are still using old Russian rock pickers that operate very slow. They must dig every stone separately and tip it to the box. He says The Degelman type rock picker is a better alternative, and it's much faster.

Effective May 1, 2014, Degelman Industries Ltd will no longer be representing Dieci as the distributor for Canada and the USA. This decision was difficult, as we remain a strong supporter of Dieci products. However, with growing demand for our agricultural lines, we have determined a need to direct our attention to our core business and focus our existing personnel on Degelman products.
To facilitate this change, Equipements FDS, our strongest Dieci dealer, will take on distribution and support for the Dieci line in Canada. For now, they will provide parts and technical support for the entire country. As well, they will market new machines directly to Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. Please contact:
Distribution and support in the United States will be handled by B & K Construction Equipment Co. Please contact:

Don Gaul stands by the first Pro-Till unit delivered to the US. Located north of St. Cloud Minnesota, Don will be one of the many innovative growers that will get to run the 33 foot Pro-Till for the first time this year. No doubt his neighbours will be watching.
