A BROWN CONTRACTS
A Brown Contracts operates a contracting business in Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire for the past three years. Offering services in hedge cutting, ploughing and slurry.
Since the establishment of the contracting business Oscar has been dealing with Bryson Tractors Ltd and is currently running five New Holland tractors “we have had
good back up and service, it’s been second to none I can’t complain” said Oscar.
Oscar received a demonstration of a New Holland plough PMH 475 from his local New Holland dealer Bryson Tractors. Oscar was very impressed with the demonstration
and said that “I didn’t want it to go back” and Oscar decided to purchase the plough in August 2018. Since purchasing the plough Oscar has ploughed 1500 acres which
is mostly grassland.
Oscar is now running two ploughs and has found that the New Holland plough is “more efficient and easier pulled than the competitor brand”. Oscar is very impressed
with the performance of the plough so far “if it performs as well in the next two years I’ll purchase another one to replace my other plough”.
The fully mounted reversible plough is an “easy work plough” according to Oscar. The ease of set up is favoured by Oscar as he explains that the skimmer system
and the depth wheel are easy set up without the requirement of spanners and tools. “I find this very handy” said Oscar. Another feature Oscar is impressed with
is the brake back system which is hydraulic allowing the pressure on the furrow to be varied. “We are ploughing a lot of stone ground and the spring-loaded discs
are good in these conditions”. The long last wearing parts are of benefit to Oscar also.
