BULK PURCHASING WEARING PARTS BRINGS BENEFITS TO FARM BUSINESSES

14th January 2022

;

We visited Fraser Hudson at Berghill Farm. The farm is a large arable business near Ellesmere, with a range of equipment for cultivation, a five furrow Kuhn Vari-master 123 plough, Kuhn BTF 4000R 4m combination drill, a discaerator and flat-lift.

‘We cover the same acreage every year so we can bulk purchase our genuine and non-genuine wearing parts. Ever since the pandemic started, we now stock up in the winter. The business benefits from bulk purchasing discounts on parts and oils from the RVT Field Sales parts team,’ said Fraser Hudson.

They use Kuhn Super Marathon plough points on the plough because they last longer, work out to be not much extra cost in the long-term and it saves time changing the points. They can comfortably plough 300 acres depending on the soil types. The farm varies from peat, sand and clay, and this is why they also like the Kuhn combination drill because it gives great flexibility to drill across all types of soil.

‘A big factor for choosing machinery supplied by RVT is because I’m a big fan of the support received from the local RVT Shrewsbury depot, the service and parts back up support is excellent. We hardly ever need to visit the depot, the Field Parts team know our machinery, keep prices competitive and deliver the parts faster than we could ever collect them.’

Richard Hughes and family farm over 500 acres at Wootton farm, Onibury, Ludlow. They run a Kuhn Combiliner Venta 3000 drill, Kuhn Discover XM2 discs, a Kuhn Vari-master 122 plough, subsoiler, Kuhn Topper, a Kuhn Powerharrow and Kuhn 6 rotor tedder.

Richard says, ‘we save in the long-term for the business by bulk forward ordering our wearing parts and oil. We can order now and get delivery when we need the parts later in the year. Dave and Luke know our machinery well which is a great advantage as they instantly know what we require when ordering. It is a long way to the RVT depot at Shrewsbury for us, so we really rely on the RVT Field Sales team. We highly value the support during the busy season too, you can rely on them to bring the right parts when you need them, to get back up and running quickly.’

‘We have a great business relationship with RVT Field Parts, they provide an efficient service that really adds value to us as customers of RVT. Their knowledge of parts is commendable, they are pro-active, and they offer great advice on oils, genuine and non-genuine parts. They are an extremely important part of our business and provide a valuable service – Thank you Dave and Luke.’
