"A half-million dollar harvester is no good without a sharp chain on it"
“It works all by itself – I can do other things at the same time and leave the machine to run on its own"
"A half-million dollar harvester is no good without a good chain on it. My operators say that they can feel the difference with the chains after they have been sharpened by the Grindomatic V12 – they cut better than before. Every harvester should be supplied with one of these machines – there are no negatives to it.”

“It works all by itself – I can do other things at the same time and leave the machine to run on its own. We used to use a manual hand grinder but the Grindomatic V12 does a full chain in half the time. It can take a lot off the teeth and it never burns them. It doesn’t even leave a lip at the top of the tooth. My customers have noticed the difference and tell me their chains cut much better than before!"

Grindomatic V12 owner since November 2012
"We go through 300-400 chains per year. I like the Grindomatic V12 because it does a consistent job. There's no comparison to a manual grinding system - it's like night and day. The difference in productivity with the chains more than pays for the machine! My relationship with Silvana is great and easy.”
Grindomatic V12 owner since August 2009
"Compared to the other grinder I had, it's 50 times better! It's an all-round good machine. Before, I'd go through 5-6 chains per shift - now it's only a couple because they stay sharp for longer and cut better! Every time I call Silvana, they've got the right answer for me.”
