FrostBoss® Testimonials

It's what our customers say about FrostBoss® that matters.

“The investment in FrostBoss® Frost Fans was seen as excellent value compared to the estimated $24 million lost to frost in the previous year.

With a total of 176  frost fan machines, the growers are given peace of mind knowing that  frost mitigation is in place across the groves.”

“They’ve been outstanding with the area they cover, ease of access to the motor and large 490 litre capacity fuel tanks.

We also had New Zealand Frost Fans upgrade the old alloy blades on our current machines with the FrostBoss® C39 composite blades (3 blade system) and these have proven to be quieter and more efficient.”

“Our customers rely on us for supply and to do what we can to protect hard-won shelf space. In fact, one of our customers helped us buy two of the fans.

Frost fans have seen our average yield increase by 2 tonnes per hectare. We prefer fans over water irrigation, which can jeopardise quality if you’re watering for frost when the vines don’t need it."

Wairau River Wines

Wairau River Wines grow a variety of grapes and export 80 percent of their wines. Prior to having frost fans, they were hit by frost, and one year only got 180 tonnes off a block that usually delivers 2000 tonnes of grapes. “The two frost fan machines on our colder Wairau block save the crop every year”, says Hamish Rose.

Baygold Ltd

"BAYGOLD has four FrostBoss® C49 frost fans, which are used in combination with water for frost protection. The fans are positioned in the more vulnerable, colder, low spots in the orchards and we use them as our first line of defence against frosts. We had three consecutive frosts earlier in the week and only used the fans."

“In the days before we had the frost fans, we sometimes used helicopters. It costs about $12,500 to contract a helicopter and once this is used up you pay by the hour. You have to make a decision by 4.30pm whether to call them in and have them on stand-by, even though you may not end up using them. Now we have the frost fans, we don’t have to make those hard calls and it’s easier to sleep at night.”

"With a vineyard elevation 500 metres above sea level, the fan has run a couple of times over summer. I remember the time and dates and you can sense the peace of mind and relief they provide, automatically firing up around 6.00am on 21st February and also after a light frost on 19th December. It would have clocked up around 20 hours over the last 12 months.

"Whilst it’s only every few years that frosts would have been a disaster without the fans, they're an insurance policy and they prevent what would otherwise be regular crop loss in the low points of undulating land. We have also seen greater consistency in the crop. The FrostBoss® fans are simple to operate and local support and service back up is excellent."

"The move into citrus growing came around ten years ago and the trees have been protected by FrostBoss® fans since coming into production. I prefer fans over using water for frost protection because sprinkler lines can freeze. Whilst stonefruit requires winter chilling hours to prolong dormancy, spring frosts cause damage to flowers and fruitlets and can severely reduce yields. Stonefruit at the small green fruit stage are more susceptible to frost damage than the blossoms."

“FrostBoss® fans are an ‘insurance policy we wouldn’t be without. We use the remote monitoring option. This enables growers to access real-time monitoring of fans via their smartphone, together with text alarms and historical data and graphs on temperature, run-hours and machine performance. We chose Frost Boss® because they are New Zealand made. The value of the local high quality afterhours service is unparalleled."

"‘Mother Nature’ is the biggest challenge. Growers are starting to appreciate the unseen damage which even light frosts can cause, including damage to developing fruit buds. For avocados, frost fans are the default option. Irrigation is only good down to -2°C, otherwise the pipes can freeze and the trees split down the centre. Similarly, with the high hours of required protection against frost damage and cold injury – which can be well over 100 hours per annum – helicopters would be just too expensive.”
