Mechanise Planting, Weeding, Harvesting and all other crop management processes using the SAM Bedlocker.
The Bedlocker is the third phase of the PRBM system. It floats behind the tractor locking the front toolbar skis onto the bed sides ensuring exact positioning of any implement or tool fitted to the Bedlocker guaranteeing extreme accuracy of operation.
The trailing skis ensure longitudinal alignment of all operations and also re-compact the bed sides.
The Bedlocker is the carrying mechanism for all seeders, sprayers, transplanters, weeders and harvesters.
The extreme accuracy of the system means that crops such as lettuce that conventionally have been propagated from seed in a greenhouse and then transplanted into the beds are now direct seeded into the beds and achieves a germination rate better than traditional methods.

Advantec was established in 1998 by David McGrath and Allan Pearce, to provide sales and marketing support to David’s agricultural company, Sustainable Agricultural Machinery Developments (SAM).
David is the inventor and manufacturer of the Permanent Raised Bed Management System which won him the Land newspaper Inventor of the Year at the Australian National Field Days in 1990.
David is also the inventor of the “original” DraftStoppa®, which was put on the back burner until the drought hit rural Australia and, as a part of a diversification of product lines, it was decided to fast track the development.
The DraftStoppa® is a self-seal casing for exhaust fans containing a patented mechanism with balanced flaps which open when the fan is on and close under their own weight when the fan is turned off. As well as preventing hot or cold air from entering the home, the DraftStoppa® also keeps out vermin, dust and odours while reducing energy costs.
