Harvestaire is a Western Australian family company based in Balcatta….. a suburb of Perth the capital city of that state. The company takes its name from the first product developed in 1980 – the Harvestaire Blower Front Kit to assist in the harvest of drought affected crops. This highly useful and successful product was sought after by many farmers around Australia especially in the 1980 and 1982 droughts as well as later droughts. The product and variations on it are highly regarded in the harvesting of shatter prone crops such as lupins, chick peas and other legumes. Later in the mid 80’s the product was exported to a number of countries and also made under license in the USA.
From there the company was involved in other harvesting innovations and from the mid 80’s on developed a range of replacement parts mainly for grain harvesters. Innovations include chaff spreading equipment using air, extended fronts to reduce harvest losses in legumes and twin cutter bars to cut the straw twice at harvest time. Improved replacement parts developed include sieves that eliminate wear on the wires, improved concaves and easily transported knives. A large amount of product is manufactured in our Balcatta factory and then supplemented with imported product from mostly Europe and the USA. Other materials not available in Australia are imported also including for example drum bar material and other specialised steels.
Our staff has wide experience as they have engaged with customers over many years across Australia in a wide variety of crops and seasonal conditions. Our company also supplies a range of replacement tractor parts which are mostly imported from Europe and the USA. The Quicktrip Lamb Marking Cradle with automatic release is also manufactured in our factory and sold around Australia.
