Abbey Machinery is one of the largest and longest established manufacturers of slurry handling equipment in Europe. A combination of over 65 years experience and the latest hi-tech manufacturing facilities ensure optimum levels of performance and reliability. Abbey tankers meet the highest standards required by todayâ€™s operators. All Abbey machines are manufactured using the highest quality components ensuring years of efficient service. All Abbey tankers are equipped with Battioni Pumps, which have a worldwide reputation for high performance and reliability. PTO drive is standard, as are safety changeover handles and pressure relief valves fitted on the pump. This particular tanker has the optional high output MEC 11,000 fitted making this a desirable, high output machine.
Dan Cosgrove, a groundworks specialist based at Clapton (near Crewkerne), recently took delivery of a high specification ABBEY 2500R Tanker, including a 6” hydraulic self fill arm, top-fill capability, upgraded pump to 11,000 l/m and a sprung drawbar - which Mr Cosgrove says gives him great balance & control on the road. Other options fitted included a large diameter clear sight glass which he says has been a huge benefit in the field when planning his field emptying rate. Our salesman, Dan Waterman, met Mr Cosgrove at Dorchester Show this year, where he was struck by the build quality of the ABBEY tanker we had on display. Having discussed his requirements and ABBEY’s extensive options, a bespoke machine was commissioned to suit Mr Cosgrove’s needs and delivered in October.

ON FUEL ECONOMY Fuel Testimonial – Denhay Farms Steve Hanna (Farm Manager of Denhay Farms Ltd of Bridport, Dorset) considers the three most important factors of tractor ownership as: • Fuel Cost • Service Backup • Resale Value During a recent trial of HIGHWOOD’s MF 7720 Dyna6 demonstrator against our current New Holland T7.200, we conducted our own fuel tests which showed the 7720 returning a massive 6 litres per hour difference in fuel consumption when running both tractors in the same field with the same 5 metre folding power-harrow. The 7720 returned an average of just 12 litres per hour against the New Holland’s 18 litres per hour. With our projected tractor use of 2000 hours per year, this gives us a potential saving for 3 years of over £17,000 pounds! This, together with MF’s renowned reliability and resale value proved to me that Massey Ferguson is the brand to buy. Crucial to our business is service back up. We have many animals to feed and cannot afford downtime. I am pleased to say that the service provided by Highwood is excellent. Steve Hanna *Fuel Cost 48p
Steve Hanna – Farm Manager, Denhay Farms Ltd
Recent analysis & testing during hedge-cutting with the 7618 Dyna6 tractor, returned an average as low as 4.07 litres per hour. Ploughing returned an average of just 10.7 litres per hour. Denhay Farms Ltd currently run a MF 7618 Dyna6 which will shortly be joined by a new MF 7718 Dyna6. These tractors are factory fitted with the AM53 AgCommand Telemetry device, enabling Steve to measure the fuel usage, engine performance, geographical location, hours and planned servicing.
