WEATHER/BREAKDOWNS
CAN BE COSTLY FOR FARMERS

MARION, OH – A wet spring, cool summer, and sodden fall have all combined to delay the harvest season.  Soybeans have been late coming off, which affects whether farmers can plant winter wheat for next season as the wheat needs good fall growing days.   
    The cool wet fall conditions have delayed the corn harvest, as well, with farmers having to decide whether to take off their corn while the moisture content is still high or leave it in the field and let it dry naturally.  Taking corn off now means farmers have to add in the expense of drying it – recent moisture percentages have been close to double the 15% range needed to store their corn crop.  Also, whether the corn is taken off now or left in the field, mold can become a major problem affecting a farmer’s bottom line. 

    As farmers rush to take advantage of any dry weather, keeping their equipment in working order becomes of prime importance.  Jeff Wolf and his partner Jim Heilman farm about 2,000 acres in Wyandot County, and both agree that for farmers, time is money in the most basic sense.  “When the weather breaks and you can get in the field,” says Wolf, “you need to be able to keep moving.  If something breaks on your equipment, it may cost you much more than just the time to fix it if the next weather front hits you before you’re back up and running.” 

    Heilman agreed and expressed his satisfaction in finding a company that will come directly into the field to weld.  “Much of today’s equipment is made with composite materials,” said Heilman.  “However, many of the key stress points are metal.  Steve just drove into the field right up to the header.” 
“Steve” is Steve Butterman of Alan Industrial Maintenance (AIM) in Marion County.  Butterman indicated that AIM has trucks set up to do onsite welding.  “We can go right to the customer,” said Butterman, “whether they’re in a factory location or in the middle of a 100-acre field."

    For farmers, it often saves them from having to take off their header – or take it apart – in order to have a piece welded back together.  And if we can’t fix that piece in the field, we can take it back to the shop and most often fabricate a new one fairly quickly.” 

    Butterman indicated AIM offers complete fabrication and installation services for turn-key projects, parts fabrication, or unusual specialized projects using a variety of metals including steel, aluminum, bronze, plastic, and wood.  They can be reached at 1-877-387-6593.

    “All of today’s technology and advancements in farm machinery,” said Wolf, “don’t really help much if you’re sitting there with a broken piece of equipment.”  Heilman added, “We can’t control the weather, so we have to look for ways to improve what we can control and that’s our equipment downtime.  AIM is one of those resources we’ve found than can do that.”
