Des Moines, Iowa - August 5, 2014
AG Belt will be exhibiting at the 2014 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa. The Des Moines-based company is a manufacturer and wholesale distributor of round hay baler belts and related supplies.
While historically AG Belt’s focus has been servicing manufacturers and their aftermarket dealer networks, they have begun taking their messaging and baler belt expertise more public.
“AG Belt has long been committed to providing outstanding service and superior products to our dealers and their customers,” said AG Belt Aftermarket Sales Manager Jon Laughlin. “Our customers enjoy peace of mind with the performance and reliability of our CobraFlex™ brand of baler belts. And we are happy to improve on that customer experience with some new and innovative product lines. For example, AG Belt's Spliceless™ baler belt and CobraFlex HD premium laced belts will enhance hay baling productivity.”
The AG Belt™ Spliceless™ Baler Belt recently won a 2014 AE50 Award for innovation within agriculture by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE). The Spliceless™ baler belt boasts 57% more puncture resistance and 500% longer life in dynamic lab testing than leading, traditional endless belts. The Spliceless™ baler belt is available as a premium endless belt option for the Case IH RB 565 and the New Holland Roll-Belt™ 560.
A premium laced option is also available on New Holland balers featuring AG Belt’s FastStart™ Mini Rough Top design on a beefed up belt carcass. These belts have been made to better withstand the abuses of baling crops such as cornstalks.
“We are excited to take our new product lines to trade shows and introduce better solutions to hay producers and highlight our dealer network where they can be found,” said Laughlin.
