imageToday Clipper, a division of A.T. Ferrell Company, announces the launch of its newest precision seed and grain cleaner, the Clipper Ceres 686-2-4 Cleaner.

The Clipper Ceres 686-2-4 Cleaner offers both new and updated features and benefits from previous machines including modular frame design, integrated bottom fan, increased capacity from the Conquest 586 by 33 per cent and multiple sizing and grading capabilities.

To address today’s seedman's needs for automation, Clipper is now offering a user-friendly automated control panel for Ceres, Conquest and New Generation models and can be retrofit to most existing installed Clipper Cleaners.

“We listened to our customers and implemented new and updated features to the Ceres 686-2-4 Clipper Cleaner in order to meet their needs,” says Steve Stuller, President of A.T. Ferrell Company. “The new and updated features of this machine make it even more operator-friendly and efficient, and it offers the most flow options in today’s market.”

The features of the Ceres 686-2-4 Clipper Cleaner include:

  • A total of nine flow arrangements for additional sizing/grading
  • Quick and easy screen release (no more screen hooks)
  • Easy access drive guards with inspection windows to view all v-belt drives
  • A split frame design that can be shipped in a single container
  • Safe seed edge molding (reduces seed coat damage)
  • Adjustable splitter flow to balance and maximize screen deck capacity
  • Precision cleaning capacity of 600-800 BPH soybeans and wheat

“The new 686-2-4 Clipper Cleaner offers customers the same quality and trusted craftsmanship they’ve come to expect from Clipper products,” adds Stuller.

The name Ceres comes from ancient Roman mythology. She was the goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships and was honoured at harvest time.
