Check out our new 18 Metre Narrow-Fold Bridge Frame design and Airseeder being delivered to a customer near Condobolin!  Our planter frames are transported largely assembled.  This means the on-site setup time is usually less than a day, a significant time saving which also means reduced crane hire costs and minimal parts handling/assembly for a better finished product.

On Monday 28th of January Peter Mansur lost his brave fight with brain cancer. Pete is survived by his wife Georgia, three sons and their families Derek & Shannon , Drew, Hannah & Grace, Chad & Maryanne.

Pete was a valued member of the Boss Engineering family and will be deeply missed by all. As one of the founding partners Pete loved watching Boss grow into the business it is today. Pete was always interested in what was happening at Boss even when he was in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Pete’s desire was for Boss to continue to thrive into the future.

Brain cancer is a devastating illness that needs so much more research. Pete has left a mark on many lives and for those who would like to do something for Pete the family have asked that a donation be made in his name to the brain cancer foundation. You can donate at curebraincancer.org.au

Pete will be cremated in a private ceremony.

You will never be forgotten Pete

Leading up to the 2018 planting season Boss Agriculture was asked to manufacture a narrow transport 18 metre wide parallelogram tyne machine, most 18 metre parallelogram tyne planters are too wide to be legally transported on the road without a police escort. The engineering team at Boss Agriculture went to work and developed a unique folding system that allows the 18 metre wide planter to fold up under 6 metres wide, this fills a gap in the market for large scale contractors and broadacre grain producers with non connecting farms to be able to transport their equipment legally and conveniently (check your local authorities for specific rules & regulations in your area).

Boss Agriculture put four of these machines into the field for 2018 winter plant with great results. These narrow folding Bridge Frames are now available in row spacing’s of 333mm, 375mm, 400mm & 500mm.

Our new narrow-fold seed planter – designed and built from the ground up in Australia – went on show in Victoria for the first time at this month’s Elmore field days.  We introduced our fresh-faced 6m Slimline Planter, assembled in-house at our production facility at Inverell in northern NSW.

The Slimline Planter is a brand-new venture for us and is a break-out from its established range of planters of nine to 30 metres in width. First unveiled at Agquip in August, the Slimline comes with 190mm (7’5”) and 154mm (6’) row spacings and weighs up to 9380kg with bins empty, though loading up with fertiliser and small seeds can take working weight up by five tonnes. Designed for sowing pasture, fodder and cereal crops, the planter folds narrow for easy road transport without the need for a pilot vehicle in most areas.

The machine is available either with a frame-mounted air seeder or in tow-behind. Taking the first option means gaining 4500 litres in capacity in a twin bin, plus the possibility of adding a 600-litre small seeds box. Or without the frame mounted bin a customer could use an existing tow-behind airseeder they may already own. The seed box is accessed using folding steps, non-slip platform and seed bag table.

Single or double disc, precision double disc and tine-compatible, the machine has 26 degrees of wing flex for ground-following ability and, when combined with parallelogram row units, offers consistent seed placement over uneven terrain. Connections are drawbar or two-point hitch, bin lids are hydraulically operated and sight-glass windows in the main bin means product levels can be easily checked.

2018 marks the 10 year of BOSS Engineering!  Formed in 2007, in Inverell Northern NSW, BOSS found itself servicing the expanding mining, agriculture & transport sectors. Over the years BOSS has continued to adopt the latest design, engineering and manufacturing techniques. Our state of the art facility currently comprises 27,000 square metres(under roof). This is significantly greater than the original work area from 2007 and has been driven through the continued growth in demand for our products.
