Three open days in three weeks include latest products and celebrations The latest products from New Holland, Case IH and JCB will be on show at an ambitious series of open days by main dealer G&J Peck Ltd. David Williams writes.
JCB launched its AgriPro Loadalls last year, with dual hydrostatic and torque converter transmissions, offering superb performance in all working situations.
Amazone’s Pantera 4502 self-propelled sprayer has been a big success for the brand and has proved ideal for the dealer’s demanding customers.
All three Pecks open days will follow the format of the successful Spalding depot annual event - now in its 12th year.
The latest New Holland combine harvesters will be on show.
Case IH Quadtracs are popular across Peck’s trading area, their excellent weight distribution and high work-rates suiting larger farms.
Starting with its popular annual Spalding depot event on Wednesday February 15th, the dealer is looking forward to welcoming current and potential customers from across the region to three ambitious open days including celebrations marking the official opening of its new Ely depot. The Ely opening, on Wednesday 22nd February is followed by an open day at the company’s Dereham, Norfolk branch on Wednesday 1st March.
Successful format Events will follow a similar format to that which has proved successful at Spalding including a hog roast and many offers on new and used agricultural machinery as well as parts and service items, allowing users to
stock up for the coming year. A wide range of clothing will also be on offer, including branded work-wear and country clothing for all seasons.
Major brands displayed G&J Peck operates from six branches - representing New Holland from its Spalding, Lincs and Ramsey St Mary’s, Cambs branches and Case IH and JCB through its Pecks AgriTrac division together with Amazone and Krone, from Spalding and Mareham-Le-Fen, Lincs, Ely, Cambs and Harpley and Dereham in Norfolk. The company imports, supplies and services AVR potato and root crop planting, harvesting and handling machinery. Also on display at the open days will be products from Knight, Teagle,
Claydon, Quivogne, Cousins, StocksAg, Garford, Lynx Engineering, GMR, Rabe, Sulky and Stewart Trailers along with Honda ATVs, and Stihl and Husqvarna farm and estate maintenance equipment. “G&J Peck has been trading for more than 170 years,” explained managing director Ian Loversidge. “We enjoy a good relationship with farmers and landowners across the eastern counties and have built up an excellent offering from a wide selection of quality brands. We expect the open days to prove very popular, and are looking forward to a series of informative and social events.”
New Holland’s T7 HD tractors offer high horsepower and great flexibility of ballasting allowing them to be used for light cultivations and tasks such as fertiliser application with a low unladen weight, but capable of heavy field work with ballast added.
Popular Spalding open day The Spalding depot open day, in its 12th year, is always well attended attracting 600–900 visitors. Spalding is the only depot from which both Pecks and Pecks AgriTrac divisions operate, which means the latest products from all the brands will be shown. There will also be a selection of used machinery brought in from across the six branches for the day, continued over...
Dezeure trailers are imported by Pecks, and complement the company’s specialist root-crop division through which AVR potato and vegetable planting, harvesting and handling machinery is also imported. The moving floor option minimises crop damage and improves safety for unloading on uneven ground and it also makes the trailers ideal for low buildings where height for tipping trailers is restricted.
