The ROI is real, and generally recognized in the first year.

How Long Has Elliott Been Doing This?

In 1879, Nelson Stow invented and patented flexible shafting, a method of transmitting power from a remote source to a controllable mechanism. Almost one-hundred-and-forty years later, the Flexible Shaft continues to solve application challenges that couldn’t even be dreamt of back then.

“With the FlexSeeder System, it saved me seed, it had more yield and it saved me headaches I would have by overplanting.”
