Nick Green, Operations Director of HIGHWOOD in Dorchester, was very pleased to hand over the keys to five Massey Ferguson 7600 series to prominent Dorset contractor Philip Trim of Philip Trim Contractors, Bere Regis.
These tractors are in addition to his current fleet of MF tractors and have replaced a 6490 and 8650 to bring him up to date with the latest MF product. This fleet purchase includes two 7626s, two 7620s and a 7618. Philip has tried other makes, but the class leading attributes in terms of fuel economy, output, power management, comfort and reliability have lead him to choose Massey Ferguson for this latest expansion of his fleet.
Philips extensive fleet of MF tractors are common sights throughout Dorset, Somerset and Hampshire.
Philip celebrated his 25yr anniversary in 2012 and has grown his business from a single David Brown 1212 to the size and range of field and road operations that he has now. With shrewd investment in reliable and up to date equipment, together with close working relationships with a loyal customer base he has ensured his expansion to the efficient and professional company he now runs.
Philip Trim said; ’I have to be comfortable that the product I am buying and the dealer I buy it from is 100%. I cannot afford downtime within my operations and the reliability I receive from the tractors is crucial. Highwood’s Aftersales teams do not let me down and this was a major consideration in making my decision. The tractors are extremely reliable, despite being worked very hard, and the massive saving on fuel compared to other makes is important when running a large fleet’.
HIGHWOOD has long supported Philip with his MF fleet, helping to keep each tractor at its maximum potential. Philip has shown his faith in the backup offered by ordering such a number.
All his tractors benefit from the protection of MF’s excellent MANAGER Extended Warranty program and although little used, is essential to ensure minimum downtime and to give fixed costs with no unexpected bills.
