We have taken delivery of our largest ever order of new tractors this month, with 20 New Holland vehicles supplied by Haynes Agricultural Ltd.
The new vehicles will have a range of roles in our orchards and around our 28 farms bringing greater technology, innovation and efficiency to our existing fleet of vehicles.
The delivery consisted of:
• Four T7-245 for heavy duty haulage around the farms
• Six T4-100N for spray and orchard operations
• Ten Boomer 35 tractors for picking train operations
Steve Everard, Director at AC Goatham & Son comments: “We are delighted to be taking delivery of these new vehicles from Haynes who have been supplying our business over the last 70 years. These vehicles bring with them a number of opportunities to integrate the technology of our farm operations, linking more closely the work of the driver, farm managers and growing teams. They will also play a vital role during our busy harvest period, when it is essential to get fruit quickly from the field and into cold storage.”
Jeremy Cloude of Haynes Agricultural Ltd comments: “We are delighted to once again work with our long-standing customers, AC Goatham & Son and to fulfil this which is their largest single order of tractors in their 70 year history. These vehicles are fuel efficient and equipped with a whole range of features which make it easier for the driver, whilst providing information back to their farm team. The technology in these vehicles means there is much greater precision and accuracy of a number of operations and they are fast, powerful and reliable during the busy harvest periods. We have been selling New Holland tractors for 100 years this year and it is fantastic to see how they have developed to support modern farming businesses such as AC Goatham & Son.”
