Massive shout out to Colin Henderson and the wonderful staff at AGrowQuip who helped me when I was in a predicament. With turf growing like wild fire at the moment, my old out front mower decided to throw a few wobblies! So I'm stuck with grass everywhere and no mower! Add in the fact we have 35 people coming to ours on Saturday for a Christmas knees up! Colin comes to the rescue loaning me the latest John Deere Z915E. Wow, what a machine and what a gesture from Colin.
Thanks to the wonderful team at AGrowQuip for their awesome customer service. I now need to make a wee Santa visit and see if he has room on his sleigh for the Z915E!
Gavin Herrick and farm manager Jay purchased their John Deere 5100M ROPS from Lloyd Salt in April 2018 for use on their Hamilton dairy farm. Just over two years on, we paid them a visit to check how it was going. They explained that they had chosen the 5100M because its short wheelbase made it ideal for post ramming and general farm work. They also use the tractor for bale feeding, spraying, mowing and pulling a mixer wagon weighing around 13 tonne all up. Both Gavin and Jay commented, “for a little tractor its got a lot of pull”. They love how versatile it is and would recommend it as a great 100HP farmers tractor- an excellent purchase decision says Gavin. If there was one thing that they would do differently, it would be to add more rear lights for the odd dark night.
Both Gavin and Jay are really appreciative of the service they have had from AGrowQuip, saying that whenever they want service AGrowQuip have provided quick turnaround times. They have just purchased their 5th tractor off Lloyd and said, “that they would always go to Lloyd whenever they were looking to purchase because he is the most trustworthy sales rep they know”.
What Ben Semmens likes best about his John Deere 5100M Cab tractor is the reliability. He also enjoys the comfortable cab and says it is “very user friendly and a great farmers tractor”. Ben bought the 5100M from Lloyd Salt a year ago because it was within his price range and it provided the HP he needed – and comments “you can’t go wrong with a John Deere”. He uses the tractor mostly for stock feeding, pasture spraying and spreading fertiliser. Ben has done over 400 hours in the 5100 with no issues. He would recommend as a great sharemilker’s tractor and wouldn’t change a thing.
Ben discovered Lloyd through his father who had purchased a baler feeder from him. He has found AGrowQuip excellent to deal with from the service department through to accounts and says Lloyd has been great to deal with also.
I recently purchased a 110 series John Deere ride on mower. While it was a lot of money for me and knowing you deal with tractors worth 100's of thousands, Barry treated me like I spent thousands. The delivery and instructions were given standing in the rain; Barry didn't bat an eyelid. I'm in the fire industry so I was very busy during and just after lockdown. My wife dealt with everything and Barry treated her exceptionally. I couldn’t believe how well we were treated! Oh, the mower is pretty good too.
AGrowQuip are the best company I have ever dealt with in New Zealand. Your technicians always turn up straight away and do great job, and once when I needed a part, one of your employees drove down from Auckland and met me in Huntly on a Saturday to give me the part.
Could you please pass on to whoever how professional and good for your company the Silverdale service team of Matt Cox and his mechanic Simon are. The best people I have dealt with for a very long time.
I was impressed at the time in which that happened and also that I had the machine to trial for a set number of hours, thus allowing me time in the seat so I could see the benefits financially, and less down time being of a big positive to ourselves.
The service you provided was great and I will definitely recommend you to any friends looking to purchase mowers and/or tractors in the future.
Mr Richard Lynch called to specifically say that Jason Middlemiss is a pleasure to deal with. He said that he has been dealing with Jason for over 2 years now and he is always polite and obliging and that he will go out of his way to help him.
Richard feels that in today’s busy world it is so nice to have someone that takes the time.
The person Colin Henderson that we dealt with was very professional. We were kept informed as to availability and delivery times which mattered to us as we don’t like not knowing where things are at. The advice on the suitability and technical aspects of the tractor was a big help in deciding which was the right purchase for us. The product is everything we expected and more, just love driving it.
Presentation - perfect 10/10.
We have known Colin Henderson for a number of years, even before our purchase of our John Deere 6230. Colin has always called into our dairy farm even though we had previously purchased a new Case tractor. When we needed another new tractor to join our operation, Colin knew exactly what was required for the job. His expertise and knowledge made the purchase easy. Colins understanding of what we needed the tractor to do was amazing, down to the horse power and what tyres were required. We are extremely happy with the performance and handling of the tractor. Upon viewing of the tractor at the AGrowQuip yard I was given a full run down of the chosen model, right down to the finer details of the maintenance and operational procedures.
Once finance and payment options were explained to us, we had plenty of time to decide on the different options with no pressure put on us.
On the day of delivery, Colin was here before it came off the truck. Once unloaded he gave my staff a full run down on operation and care of our new and first John Deere. Even after the purchase, Colin still takes the time to call in on us. He is always friendly and never gives us the feeling that he is just trying to sell us something. We look forward to dealing with Colin in the future.
