Fleet feels the force The latest stage in a longstanding working relationship between an Oxfordshire contractor and a machinery dealership has been cemented with the delivery of two new New Holland T7.245 tractors. They join David Hunt’s existing fleet of nine New Holland tractors. The oldest is an 8160, supplied by Turney Fieldforce in 1998. In the intervening years, it’s clocked up 26,742 hours, most recently working a McConnel hedgecutter.

Turney Fieldforce’s Nigel Barker has worked closely with David ever since the 8160 was supplied. In addition to the tractors, David’s fleet now includes New Holland CR 9080 and CX 8070 combines, a New Holland BR 7040 round baler and New Holland FR self-propelled forage harvester. Turney Fieldforce has been a New Holland dealer since 1961, operating from branches at Middleton Stoney and Princes

New Case dealership for North Lincs After five successful years serving the farming community in the local area, Louth Tractors is expanding its area with the addition of a new Case IH dealership covering the north and west of Lincolnshire. The new depot at Pimlico Farm, Great Limber (near Humberside Airport) officially opened its doors for trading at the beginning of July with an American themed BBQ and Beer night. The expansion means the Case IH brand will be even better serviced from Skegness across to Lincoln and up to the Humber east

of Scunthorpe, says the firm. Along with Case IH, Louth Tractora takes with it the Sumo franchise, Merlo, Krone, KRM, Twose, Polaris, Husqvarna and many others. Louth Tractors MD, John Smith, described the move as natural expansion. “We have established Case IH as a leading franchise in the Louth area and look forward to doing the same in the Brigg area. We have a full team of sales, parts and engineers and are offering an on-farm parts delivery service from the new depot. It was great to see

so many new faces at the opening night, we really do look forward to serving the area well.” Headed by Darren Johnson and Gill Kyle, Louth Tractors (Brigg) is ideally situated in the heart of the area giving the team easy access to all parts of the county. The telephone number for the new dealership is 01469 426985. The new depot officially opened its doors for trading at the beginning of July with an American themed BBQ and Beer night.
