I know for a fact that they are sold in Australia. I visited their plant last year and saw first hand their sales office where they they take orders. I commented about all the clocks on the wall showing the different times around the world and the young man I was talking to stated that someone was there almost 24 hrs a day because Australia was their biggest market besides the US. Mr Priefert saw me wondering around and came out ans shook my hand and told the young sales man to take me on a tour of their 3000 acre ranch which is right behind the factory.
The reason I was there to begin with was that I had a bought a farm that came with a old rusty priefert chute that had been sitting out in the weather since day one. I visited the Prifert booth at the Ft Worth stock show and ask their rep about getting a couple replacement parts and maybe some matching paint. He said "why don't you send it back to the plant for refurbishment". I had never heard of anything like that so he gave me a name to call. So I called and they said "sure bring on out". So I did. They looked it over and told me by the serial number it was an 87 model and would be easy to refurb because the floor was still usable. I inquired about the cost and they said not much, probably $200 - $300.
I thought whoa, what a bargain. Dad always told me when things sound to good to be true, they usually ain't. In three weeks I got a call telling me it was ready. When I arrived and they brought it out I thought that they had mixed mine up with somebody else's because it was as good as new. Really better than new because they had added some improvement that they had made to newer models. My bill was $174.00. They had replaced all the rods and bent bars, readjusted all the moving parts. sandblasted it, dipped it in the paint vat, new stickers, new hand grips and re greased the sliding parts on the rear gate. I was floored. I ask this same young man why they did it so cheap and he said "the Priefert family believes that if you buy a chute from us, it should last you your lifetime. They made a believer out of me and I have bought a hay ring and a automatic head gate since then. I know you can't visit the plant in East Texas but I can tell you from my experience that they will stand behind their product no matter where you are in the world.
