Mathews Company is helping farmers save dollars on purchasing a grain dryer. M-C has several ways to show farmers how much money they can save by investing in a grain dryer now, despite low grain prices.
M-C’s line of vacuum-cooled tower dryers is the most energy efficient grain dryer Mathews sells. One of the ways farmers can see potential savings is by visiting M-C’s Vaccum-Cool Savings Calculator, located on the Modular Tower page of M-C’s website. Key information is entered, such as desired amount of moisture removal, how many acres are harvested, anticipated yield and local propane or natural fuel cost, for example. Automated calculated results reveals savings over non-vacuumed cooled dryers. In many cases, farmers have realized more than 30% savings over traditional dryers, according to M-C’s research.
M-C is also helping farmers save money by extending its deepest winter discounts. M-C’s “Early Order” Grain Dryer Discount Program typically offers the deepest discounts from November to January with percentage discounts that decline monthly until April 20. M-C is extending the deepest discounts through April 30.
M-C dealers are directing potential buyers to available grant and incentive programs that can give buyers additional ways to save money on their purchase, according to Jeremy Kemp, Sales & Marketing Manager. Kemp says that Mathews Company’s relationship with the Propane Education Research Council (PERC) offers farmers a $5,000 incentive for recording and reporting fuel usage to PERC for the first year dryer usage. The incentive is paid directly to the farmer in two parts with a portion paid upfront and the balance upon PERC’s receipt of the fuel usage data. M-C’s Modular Tower Series dryers qualify, in addition to its vacuum-cooled Trilogy Series Dryer.
