FarmSight Customer Study
Since taking delivery of the product in July, Rob Redman,
of RJR Contracting, and his team have spread around
11,000 tonnes of Lime, Chalk and Fibrophos with one
machine across Bucks, Oxon, Warwickshire, Berkshire,
Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire in 2016.
Having been approached by Needham Chalks to carry
out spreading taks for them, Rob
purchased a variable rate KRM Bredal
lime spreader through Farol Ltd to work
alongside the Gen 4 CommandCenter
Premium Activation in his John Deere
6195R tractor for his spreading needs.
“It’s one of the best moves I’ve made
for my business” Rob says.
Using a JDLink Connect subscription,
which forms part of Rob’s Connected
Tractor Package, he has been using
the Wireless Data Transfer element
to be able to send and receive the
variable rate files created by Needham
Chalks and Soyl.
“The tractor can be out spreading the
day’s work and we can already send him the files for the
next day or the next job whilst he is working.
Luke Ward of Farol FarmSight and Freddie Rolt of
Needham Chalks have been working together during the
season with Freddie sending the map files to Luke for him
then to send on to the tractor
saving Rob time in a busy season
and again making full use of this
Connected Tractor Package.
“The support from the FarmSight
guys has been absolutely brilliant,
Luke and Jeff have been blinding
and I wouldn’t have been able
to do it without them. Both
products have performed almost
faultlessly across the season.”
“Work is carrying on through
the winter as the season has
been good and dry and this
should hopefully continue into
the spring and will may well be
looking at a 2nd variable rate
spreading machine in the future.”
