After talking with many of his contracting mates and knowing what other leading contractors own, Andre Syben of AG Technology in Cambridge spent a full day checking out every available tip trailer at the 2013 National Fieldays. He returned the next day and made the decision to invest in a Buckton 8 Tonne hydraulic tip trailer.
Andre says that what impressed him most was the build quality and strength of the Buckton, because he needed a tough workhorse to handle the various jobs in a typical Kiwi farmer’s day.
In the time he’s owned the trailer it would have carted thousands of silage bales, 10 at a time, and uncounted loads of rotten rock to the point it was falling off from overloading.
Andre made the following comments regarding quality, service and reliability:
- “It’s never once let me down, even with the rock being towed behind a 250hp tractor!”
- “I didn’t like the narrow wheel base and narrow deck of other trailers, and I also wanted to support local industry.”
- “Support and backup goes a long way when you are relying on the one machine.”
He went on to say that the downside of buying an imported trailer was too great if something was to go wrong.
Thanks for choosing Buckton Andre.
