S3 AWS Airbar

From humble beginnings in 1998 from the back of a John Deere Dealership in Southern Ontario, Canada, S3 AWS Airbar developed their first Air Assist Harvesting Systems. A growing reputation for high-quality products and personalized customer support has made AWS Airbar a household name in maximizing harvest efficiency worldwide.

Joining the S3 Group of companies in January of 2022, S3 AWS Airbar is building on those values to provide solutions that exceed our customer’s expectations in the rapidly evolving agricultural industry.

The S3 AWS Airbar Concept

The S3 AWS Airbar concept is to deliver a constant flow of air to the crop as it is cut off by the knife. The constant air flow ensures the crop is pushed into the harvester fronts reducing grain and seed loss at the point of the cutter bar. The constant air flow also reduces the reliance on the reel to actively feed crop material into the harvester, meaning the reel can be run at lower r.p.ms reducing mechanical fatigue.

Features of S3 AWS Airbars

  • The Air Manifold mounts directly in front of the original reel. This means the crop is now being fed by both the reel and air giving superior harvestability of a range of crops
  • The front mounted air manifold does not impede the operator’s visibility of the cutter bar
  • Direction of the air flow is controlled by an electric actuator, meaning the air can be directed at the cutter bar no mater the position of the reel.
  • The belt drive fan in an effective, reliable and serviceable means of converting power into air pressure
  • The fan unit is fitted with an electric actuator which controls the amount of air flowing to the manifold.
  • Apart from the control switch mounted in the cab of the harvester, all other componentry is mounted directly to the front.

S3 AWS Airbars can be mounted to the following makes of harvester fronts:

S3 AWS Airbar partnership with AG Schilling & Co

Our first S3 AWS Airbar was sold to AG Schilling & Co in 2008 as Mark was seeking a solution to excessive seed loss while harvesting sparse lentil crops in marginal seasons. With yield improves noted in the range of 10-20% for previously poor harvestable crops, AG Schilling & Co soon fitted their entire harvest fleet with S3 AWS Airbars and took on the Sales and Service role for S3 AWS Airbar cross the entire Australian grain growing belt.

In 2018, AG Schilling & Co expanded with a new company, AG Culture, to pursue and prosper by exclusively dealing with S3 AWS Airbars in Australia.
