The Flexxifinger Story
In the late 1990s, a farmer just outside of Assiniboia, Saskatchewan, Canada had a downed lentil crop. The available crop lifters at the time were resulting in very little of his harvest ending up inside the hopper. Instead of lifting his crop, those lifters were breaking the plant and pushing his lentils into the ground. He then modified the lifters so that he would be able to get under the canopy to actually lift the crop up – which gave him the idea for the original Flexxifinger® Pulse Crop Lifter™.
Since that time, this same small-town farmer, Dave Dietrich, has patented his ideas and has continued to expand the Flexxifinger® line of crop lifters. Flexxifinger® now offers several types of crop lifters, each created to suit different crop types, soil conditions and levels of damage. In addition, Flexxifinger® is expanding its listing of available products to also offer the Limbinator Saw™ and the Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker rotary rock picker.
The idea driving Flexxifinger’s® innovation is pretty simple – create high quality, easy to use products that will assist its clients.
Still based in Assiniboia, Flexxifinger QD Industries Inc. is the premier manufacturer of harvesting aid attachments. From its humble beginnings in a farmer’s shop and being sold out of a truck, growing to a network of more than 400 dealers and/or distributors across North America, Australia and Europe, Flexxifinger® has truly become The Choice of Mechanized Farmers Worldwide™.
