Case STX 500

Weighing just over 24 tons and with a fuel tank of 1360L, it achieves high work rates. For example using our 8m Vaderstad Rapid drill controlled by a RTK GPS signal using a Trimble FMX display it achieves rates of up to 20ha/hr.
Case Puma 240CVX and 140
Both Puma’s are used for a variety of roles and are extremely versatile tractors. The Puma 240CVX is used mainly for grain carting and fertiliser applications.The Puma 140 is used for grain carting as well as band spraying using our Micron Varidome.
Both are capable of achieving 50Km/hr on the road and are fitted with air brakes and suspension.
Case Puma 185CVX & 215CVX
At harvest we hire in two more Case Puma’s. Both are brand new each year and come autosteer ready. This mean they are then both equipped with our own RTK GPS hardware so that we can maintain our level of precision even with hired machines. These are used for baling, corn carting and cultivations.
John Deere 6900
Mainly used now for estate management such as hedge cutting or grass mowing, the John Deere 6900 is still going strong. It has proven itself to be an extremely versatile tractor.
