"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!"

"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.”

"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.”

"We probably grind 20-30 chains per day. Our relationship with Silvana is great. If there is an issue, we just call and get it resolved very quickly. They've been great to deal with."
