One gets used to good things really fast

One gets used to good things really fast,” says Aleksey Babakov, head of the Oktyabrskoye LLC. “We, for instance, got used to prompt and efficient work of AgroCentre servicing experts and to the fact that equipment breaks down very seldom though it runs round the clock.” On its fields the farm uses power-saving machines from Vaderstad. Those are Top Down 700 stubble cultivators and Rapid 800C sowing machines.

During the demonstrations, the participants of the event estimated the capabilities of those modern, highly efficient machines. The hit of the AgroCentre show was the JCB 531-70 telescopic loader. Easy to operate, reliable and highly productive, it offers the traditional advantages of the brand. As a result, several contracts were signed for purchase of loaders. At Oktyabrskoye, they are looking forward to another Top Down cultivator, which is due to arrive shortly. “This year, this is the third such seminar,” says Andrey Marisin, AgroCentreSibir executive director. “Here our customers can both see the equipment in operation and exchange opinions about the special features of its use. They can also familiarise themselves with new agricultural technologies.”
