JCB machines caught everybodys fancy

Technical re-equipment of farming enterprises of the Tyumen oblast became the number one topic of the Agricultural Sector 2013 Trade Show. This year the show was held on an especially large scale. About 40 suppliers presented 110 state-of-the-art machines to  agricultural producers of Tyumen oblast. Over 20 of them were demonstrated by AgroCentreZakharovo.

‘Over the past few years, farming enterprises of the region have been purchasing more and more advanced machines. However, there is still a lot of outdated machinery operating on the farms,’ Vladimir Cheymetov, Deputy Governor of the oblast, pointed out. ‘That is why it is essential to pay close attention to re-equipment of the agricultural sector, especially in view of accession to the WTO.’

Managers of AgroCentre noted that agricultural producers were mostly interested in seeding machinery, sprayers and track tractors. Apart from these machines, telescopic loaders were in high demand both among large farming enterprises and small farms. At AgroCentre’s stand, farmers could find JCB loaders to suit any taste. The company presented models with a lift capacity range from 3 to 4 tonnes and boom length of 6, 7 and 9 metres. The 541-70 JCB loader took part in competitions and showed unparalleled manoeuvrability.

‘JCB loaders have won the trust of the agricultural producers of Tyumen oblast due to their reliability, quality and multi-purpose applications,’ says Artem Ozhogin, Manager of the Sales Department in the Tyumen office of AgroCentreZakharovo. ‘No matter whether they work on a livestock farm, at a seed growing company or a multi-faceted enterprise, the loaders are never idle. Last year, we delivered 12 telescopic loaders to enterprises of the region.’

PK Moloko LLC (Tyumen oblast, Nizhnaya Tavda district) has been operating a JCB Loader 531-70 for over a year. The chief engineer of the enterprise, Rushan Nugmanov took a liking to the machine:

‘On our farm with 3,000 lactating cows, the loader doesn’t have a moment’s rest. It loads silage and concentrates, hay. This is the best option for us: 7 metre boom length and a lift capacity of 3 tonnes. The machine is very manoeuvrable. It can move quickly even in very narrow spaces. The engine is located on the side of the machine which makes maintenance very convenient. We wouldn’t mind having another assistant like this on the farm!’
