TF KETTLES AND SON
NEW HOLLAND STC 300 RS CULTIVATOR
TF Kettles and Son are third generation farmers in Duntrune, Dundee farming 350 acres of mixed arable. On the farm they grow wheat, barley and rye for the bio digester.
TF Kettle and son are loyal New Holland customers for many years running three New Holland tractors and a New Holland CX8080 combine. Having been satisfied
by both service and backup from their local dealer Agricar Ltd. Most recently Mr. Kettles decided to purchase a New Holland STC 300 RS 3 metre cultivator in October.
The STC is a heavy-duty stubble cultivator offering numerous advantages including rigid tines for an even working depth of between 6 – 25cm and is fitted with wing
shares, to ensure a full cut across the entire working width.
Mr. Kettles has been very impressed with his cultivator as it “gives good clearance and not choking”. In tougher conditions with a build-up of straw “the cultivator sailed
through the straw and didn’t clog up in comparison to the previous cultivator it would have clogged up in those conditions”.
To prepare the seedbed the ground is stubble cultivated before ploughing. “I can’t fault the machine it ticks all the boxes of what I want it to do” Mr.. Kettles is very
pleased with his new machine describing the performance as excellent as It is a “well-built, strong machine” and “easily pulled behind the tractor”.
