Whether it is a header, harvester, draper, or auger, harvesting food and agricultural products relies on mobile equipment and machinery to complete the toughest jobs during harvest season. However, refueling that equipment can come at a heavy cost to farming operations in the way of fuel costs, efficiency, and the safety of workers. 

During peak harvesting season, farmers fuel and refuel their mobile equipment so frequently that it can be easy to overlook the safety risks that highly flammable materials, such as gasoline and diesel fuel, can pose to workers and the surrounding environment.

Additionally, relying on stationary fuel storage tanks compromises production and eats up additional time while operators drive mobile equipment back and forth to the refueling stations. 

To help mitigate these risks and control costs for farm equipment operators, the knowledgeable fuel transfer experts at Motion Australia are on standby during harvest season, offering the latest in innovative fuel transfer, storage, and dispensing solutions to the agriculture segment. 

The team is thoughtfully dispersed to provide readily available service and support across all of the key agricultural regions from coast to coast, able to provide consult and source supplies through their national network of branches, as well as perform joint site calls with their strategic suppliers of fuel transfer solutions.

Joining Motion Australia at the frontlines of harvest season supply and demand is Australian owned and operated Alemlube, who are well-recognised for their innovative off-the-shelf fuel transfer, storage, and dispensing solutions.

Alemlube’s new lockable diesel refuelling storage and dispensing kits

Designed to be a practical, user-friendly solution using the latest diesel fuel tank technology, the Alemlube 12V lockable diesel refuelling storage and dispensing kits consist of: 

• A locally manufactured polyethylene tank with built in nozzle holster
