John Lancett

It is with regret that we have to post that John Lancett, our former storeman passed away on Saturday 3rd August. John had been at Agrimec for 19 years. Late in 2017 John was diagnosed with Cancer. He underwent treatment and was back working with us part time in August 2018. However in June this year he had a major setback and had deteriorated rapidly since then.

New Garden Machinery

We have just launched our range of Garden Machinery:-Lawn Mowers, Strimmers, Hedgecutters and brush cutters. These are suitable for both the domestic and professional market.
Most importantly the IBEA Mowers have Biggs & Stratton/Honda engines. In contrast the hedgecutters and chainsaws have ‘Active’ engines developed for Go Karts. If you require battery operated we also have a selection from Pellenc’s Pellenc Battery Operated Pruners new Alpha range.

Pellenc Battery Operated Pruners

The new Prunion with small battery and belt option, means you can interchange between a small chain saw and secateurs operating off a single battery. Stocks of these will be coming in from the end of October. Contact Guy on 01531 632171 for a demonstration.

Apple Harvesters

We have a wide range of SFM apple harvesters. The ‘Fruitflo’ style lift elevator has proved to be a very popular improvement on the Sabre tractor mounted harvester. With increased harvesting capacity and gentle fruit handling, the Sabre is the ideal harvester for the larger grower.

Whilst we are nearly fully booked for manufacture of new harvesters we have two second hand Sabres available. If you are thinking of buying new front paddles, blowers, shakers etc. it is essential you order well in advance of the season to avoid disappointment.
