Product Description

Agtribe is a platform for farmers to advertise machinery for hire (wet or dry) which is sitting idle in the shed or paddock.

Farmers looking to hire equipment will have the ability to search the area for a piece of equipment they may need to get the job done in a cost effective and efficient way.

The idea of Agtribe evolved from the lack of machinery the Agtribe founders had on their farm.

Farmers often have a need for the use of hire equipment on the farm, whether it has been a second tractor at sowing, or a truck and trailer at harvest through to a sheep jetting race for fly prevention. However it's often hard to justify purchasing this equipment given that it's only required at certain times of the year.  To overcome this problem the Agtribe founders decided to hire equipment and then noticed there were some benefits of being able to do this for both owner and hirer, due to the fact that you can hire equipment in a cost effective way and that the owner received a financial gain by getting paid for machinery which would have otherwise been sitting idle in the shed.

The concern the Agtribe founders had when originally hiring equipment from other people was "what if something went wrong with the machinery whilst on hire", to take this concern out of the equation the Agtribe founders contacted their insurance agency who provided a policy which was able to cover them in the event something went wrong with the hired equipment.

Agtribe Ag machinery hire will be beneficial for the following people:

  • ‍For those who are not able to justify buying something due to the fact they only need it for a short period of time throughout the year
  • Farmers who own machinery which breaks down at a crucial time
  • Buying equipment to then hire it out if you can not quite justify having the ag machinery
  • To become more efficient in the way you run you farming operation by not having too much money tied up in machinery finance
  • Contractors wanting to list up an add about machinery. 

Example machinery that can be listed:

Posthole diggers, sheep handling equipment,  silo bag in/out loaders, wool presses, tractors, trucks, trailers, fencing equipment, header attachments, field/motherbins, tillage equipment, shed space for hay/equipment, silo space, irrigation equipment and Hay equipment just to name a few.

Machinery which cannot be listed for dry hire at the moment due to insurance:

Headers, Mower Conditioners
