Keith Rucker & Vintage Machinery with American Rotary Phase Converters

Many of you might know him from Vintagemachinery.org but you may know him even better as Keith Rucker – The agricultural scientist/machinist!

Come with us as we head down south to Georgia to meet with Keith and hang out at his shop as well as visit a few of his favorite places along the way.

He gives us the background on how and why he got started in machining, why he needed three-phase power, and why he chose American Rotary to make his shop what it is today.

To see more from our adventures with Keith, visit our YouTube channel. Enjoy!

Farm Technology at the WPS Farm Show

In this video, we take you to the Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Farm Show on the EAA grounds in Oshkosh, WI. Here we talk with a handful of companies regarding farm technology and how data is being used to yield better returns by minimizing expenses and maximizing efficiency.

American Rotary phase converters are built for the demands of agricultural equipment and applications from grain dryers to pivot irrigation systems.  Often, farms are located in areas which do not have access to the 3-phase power grid.  Paying the power company to bring 3-phase power onsite is expensive, and often cost-prohibitive.  American Rotary phase converters provide reliable and cost-effective phase conversion for any agricultural setting.

Young Farmers at the 2016 National Farm Machinery Show

While down at the 2016 National Farm Machinery Show, it was clear that farming and agriculture is becoming more of a technology-based industry. In this video we speak with some future farmers of America to see what drew them to the show, as well as talk with some seasoned industry veterans to see what bits of advice they had to offer young farmers looking to make a career in farming and agriculture.

Chief Industries at NFMS 2016 with American Rotary Phase Converters

In this video, we speak with Chief Industries at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. Chief Industries is a 3rd generation, family owned business who prides itself on providing the best product possible for farmers to maximize their profit when it comes to grain storage and handling from harvest to end use.

Drones For Farming: Precision Drone at the 2016 National Farm Machinery Show

This is the first video from our trip to The 2016 National Farm Machinery show. In this video, we talk with Adam from Precision Drone, who provide a turnkey software solution to help farmers optimize their production. Unlike many other solutions out there, customers own 100% of the data with the purchase of their drone.

This is really helpful technology that will be of incredible use from now going forward for those farmers looking to increase their yield each year. Take a look for yourself…

Whether it’s water damage, insects, feeding, or nitrogen deficiencies, by utilizing their system, farmers can easily upload the maps to their own management systems to begin to collect data that can help them locate and implement prevention plans where their field may not be producing as they should. As a result, farmers can optimize production better than they could in the past.
