AgriGard™ smoke and heat sensors monitor your engine bay, as well as left and right-hand side compartments. Each zone contains its dedicated extinguishant circuit.
Your in-cab AgriGard™ control panel will alert you to the location of any smoke or fire before disaster strikes.
Allow AgriGard™ to automatically suppress the fire, or use the Hold function and manual extinguishing features, which puts you in control of the response.
Waterless, non-toxic, gas-only extinguishant leaves no residue. This means the AgriGard™ system can be rapidly reset and your machine can get back to work.
Almost 70% of fires occur after harvesting. That’s why AgriGard™ remains active after your engine is off, so you can relax knowing your assets are safe.
Optional remote monitoring through our cloud-based network gives you real-time system status and GPS tracking.
The main reasons are to protect our capital and peace of mind. Early detection of bearing or belt failure through smoke detection is paramount. Not only will early detection provide a genuine safety advantage but helps keep the machine running, especially as replacement headers and parts supply is now ridiculous.
Further peace of mind for when the day is done and I know it is still being monitored whilst I sleep.
I see the biggest benefit is reduced header downtime. It’s very difficult to get replacement machinery and parts. Some parts from the USA can take up to 3 months. Downtime prevents or delays harvest, which has a critical time window and leads to significant financial losses.
I personally reached out to our Agricultural mechanics and contract harvesters and the feedback was unanimous – fire suppression systems [like AgriGard™] on headers will become a must over the next few harvests; reasons given:
1. New equipment has become more difficult to source
2. Contract harvesters have become more scarce meaning, in the event of a fire, you may not be able to get contractors to assist if you do not have a secondary header.
3. Fire risk to not just their crops but also their neighbours’.
4. Feeling it will become mandatory from insurance firms
5. OSH on farms.

Recent research has revealed approximately 7% of our nation’s harvesters will likely start a fire this year. And, of these fires, one in ten will severely damage both machine and crop.Read more
