Kubota tractors have made their name globally for helping farmers to do things more efficiently and more easily and Western Cape apple farm manager, Neil Reid, of Elgin Orchards is one of these.
“We utilise the front-mounted option extensively for moving our apple bins,” says Reid, “and Kubota has made a palpable difference to my operation in terms of efficiency and bottom line savings. These tractors were purchased primarily because of their wet clutch and forward/reserve shuttle technology as other brands of tractors suffer undue downtime during the harvesting season as they do not have this unique technology”
“It’s obvious that power and, above all, reliability, are key to providing the best possible security service and with SPE and Linhai we are assured of these. This, combined with the good price we were offered made the choice a fairly simple one,” van der Mescht says.
Guys and gals. Here’s the skinny. Diesel power is getting better and better – and simply on a scale of economy, it makes enormous sense for companies to utilise this technology. Linhai has just launched their new 3 cylinder Perkins powered 800 – and it does the job… This is an agricultural workhorse.
That’s the bottom line, it feels like one – and runs like one. And that’s a good thing. Power, utility, practicality, the new Linhai seems to tick all the boxes. Best of all, we like the quality feel of this machine.
