Growing Valtra Fleet Ticking All The Boxes

Added 09/01/2023

A rapidly growing fleet of Valtra tractors is ticking all the boxes for a large Lincolnshire-based salad and veg producer.

Trading as Windy Ridge Vegetables Ltd, based near Boston, the Nundy family farms approximately 360ha of mainly Grade 1 silt land. Crops include cabbage, cauliflower, savoy cabbage and pumpkins as well as specialist vegetables. Planting and harvesting continue throughout most of the year to maintain supplies of fresh produce.

First experience of Valtra

"Our 20-tractor mixed brand fleet includes models of various sizes, power and weights, but before this year we had never owned a Valtra," explained Mark Nundy who manages the farm with his father Mick.

When Chandlers Farm Equipment Area Sales Manager Rob Immink visited the farm to discuss a new fertiliser spreader, he suggested tying a Valtra. A demo N-Series tractor with front loader was driven by several operators and it quickly proved popular – so much so that it never returned to the dealer.

Additional Models

Within a short time, six additional Valtras had also been ordered and, by early July, the fleet included the N155 with a Valtra loader, plus an N175, a T255, two G125s – one fitted with a harvesting rig and the other for fertiliser applications, and two A115s – one for planting and box handling, and the other to power a robotic hoe. All the tractors are different colours, making it easier for members of the large farm team to differentiate between machines on the fleet.

Reliability so far has been excellent and support from the Chandlers team as well as Valtra UK has been exceptional, stressed Mark.
