I have proudly served Agriculture through several decades. And always, I never violated my desire to provide products and services that met or exceeded my customers’ expectations. If you have dealt with me, you know I often ask, “did you get what you thought you bought?” If it wasn’t the case, I always did my best to make it right.
ShockAvoid is my company. I cannot and have not veered from that desire.
We began ShockAvoid in 2019 from scratch. We have spent the following years developing, working with very important and meaningful partners who believe in our mission. During the past two years, we have been field testing the product to be sure it is right, will work, for people in Agriculture. And we have learned a lot.
And we have not pushed hard, selling to you. Several of our partners bought our equipment and were willing to work with us as we grow a system that satisfies the needs. Now, with 10’s if not hundreds of thousands of acres under our belt, with 20 units in multiple states, and very importantly, with experience and knowledge and changes along the way, we have high confidence that when you buy, you WILL get what you thought you bought!

"Moving machinery and equipment like sprayers, combines and grain augers around a farmstead or on a roadway in the presence of power lines is common practice. Each year in the U.S., 62 farmers or farm workers are electrocuted. And in many of those cases, contact between machinery and an overhead power line or utility poll is the cause.... "
"One of the more interesting boom accessories was exhibited by ShockAvoid. This paired two boom arm sensors with an in-cab display to allow operators to monitor if their unfolding/folding booms were too close to power lines while applying in crop fields, preventing a potentially dangerous situation for all involved."
