“I had just finished combining a field of soybeans and was pulling up to the back side of our building site and it was about 10:00 p.m. As I pulled into the yard, I could see my two hired men running towards the combine. One of the men had a regular fire extinguisher in his hand and the other man ran and got an AKE fire extinguisher to put out the fire that had started in amongst some pulleys behind the front wheels of the combine. I had no idea that there was a fire till I got up to the yard and saw the men running towards me. My hired man started spraying the regular fire extinguisher which was making a mess and not putting out the fire, but quit when my other hired man arrived with the AKE fire extinguisher. It immediately put out the fire and did not make a white mess all over everything. Upon careful inspection of the combine, we discovered that nothing had been harmed due to the fire. The only thing that needed to be replaced was the bearing that went bad and started the fire in the first place. We definitely credit the AKE fire extinguisher for putting out the fire quickly so that none of the wires, pulleys, or hoses were destroyed and ultimately saving the entire combine. It was a very dry fall and combine fires were happening all over southern Minnesota. We were fortunate not to be among the casualties of that dry weather. Thank you AKE for such an awesome product!!”
