With a wet harvest putting extra pressure on farmers who will already be a month behind their usual pre-cultivation hedge trimming routine thanks to new rules on the practice, Suffolk-based hedgecutter manufacturer Shelbourne Reynolds is urging operators to ensure machines are fully fit and ready for a months' extra growth and the increased output required by a reduced trimming window.
We are pleased to announce the launch of a new finance program at the Livestock Event on July 8th and 9th at the NEC, Birmingham. The scheme is available on a limited number of single auger Powermix Pro machines between 9 and 15 cubic metres in size. These machines feature Shelbourne's industry leading Express webbing conveyor system.
