The club invested well this year in a powerful John Deere 5100M tractor. This machine is an essential piece of kit, kept busy by topdressing, pulling trailers and lifting and loading. The old tractor was under powered and there for not idea for some of the lifting required. The depreciation on John Deere tractors is very low and the life span very high which makes this an excellent investment, they are also incredibly reliable.
We had a visitor today who was particularly fascinated by the new tractor. RCP touring professional Steven Tiley was fascinated by the vast amount of controls inside and for anyone who knows Steven won’t be surprised to find out that he asked an extraordinary amount of questions!
