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."

Using fans in wetter areas instead of adding more water.

“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.”

An insurance policy preventing regular crop loss.

"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."

Peace of mind for a boutique vineyard.

"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.

Citrus, Stonefruit
Protecting citrus trees in a non-traditional growing area.

"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."

Choosing remote monitoring for real-time data on the smartphone.

“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."

Apples, Plum
Improved fruit quality and less scarring on plums is great for business.

"In addition to the peace of mind the fans provide, they improve the quality of the fruit. We see less scarring on the plums, and having fruit downgraded can halve the price you get so it’s a big impact. Water sprinkling isn’t an option because it would use too much water.”

Cherries
Fans save crops 90 percent of the time.

“It’s a fine line between too cold and OK. A light frost can cause the skin to crack which later manifests itself as a scar. Cherries are a pretty risky crop. Without frost protection on some of our blocks, the risk would be too high. I would say 90 percent of the time, fans will save your crop.”

Saving the trees from frost paid for the fans straightaway.

“We’ve now got nine FrostBoss® C49 fans at Mowbray with more going in this year to protect the orchard as it comes into production. Out at Mowbray, the fans did their job running for over 100 hours last winter to prevent frost injury on the citrus. The previous season, when it was colder, some machines clocked up 270 hours.”
