“Never thought I could get the machine for that price”

The Heckmann farm in Saerbeck, Germany was last summer looking for a good replacement for a 30-year-old Douven drain cleaner. Several requirements were: the new drain cleaner had to be at least as robust, easy to use and – of course – the price had to be right. Their minds were made up a few days later: it was to be a Sieger Drain-jet S.

Heckmann have a total of 32 hectares, and most of the land is drained with coconut fibre-wrapped plastic drainage pipes. Besides the fact that the ground has a high iron content, the adjacent canal is also a major influencing factor. This means that the drainage system must be cleaned regularly. The drainage pipes are flushed every other year, and the collecting wells every six months. If the drainage system were not cleaned regularly, the blockage of the system by iron oxidation in combination with the pressure from the canal would quickly make agriculture all but impossible.

Because a replacement for the old drain cleaner had to be found quickly, Heckmann began scouring the internet. After some online research Sieger came into focus. While the machine’s specifications speak for themselves, the company found the price very attractive too, and after brief contact the purchase was made. Payment was made via PayPal, which gave the buying party a few additional guarantees. Sieger delivered the drain cleaner to the company a few days later.

Heckmann have now been using the Sieger Drain-Jet S to their full satisfaction for some time. In addition to the drain cleaner’s enormous capacity, the easy operation is a particular plus point. Because an extra water tank is often used for the flush water, the fact that the Drain-Jet can also be used on a smaller tractor is an additional advantage.

Although they were a little nervous ordering online, Heckmann are now not only happy with the machine itself but also about the contact with Sieger and the information provided. Both the purchase and delivery went smoothly. And that is what Sieger strives for, nothing more and nothing less. Mr Heckmann essentially says the same thing himself: “Es ist ja einfach nur spülen.”
