Nine years after it started up, Nottinghamshire company FarmGem says it is getting good success in eastern European and other countries. UK farmers account for the bulk of customers, says the company’s Cliff Buck, but the company is also attracting sales in places like Poland, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Greece and Uzbekistan.
It has also diversified into a new range of orchard and vineyard machinery, including mounted and trailed mist-blower sprayers, heavy-duty mulcher/choppers and harvest platforms.The adjustable scissor-lift maintenance platforms give users an exact working height so that they can operate safely without overreaching.
FarmGem’s latest sprayers are the 3,000-litre/24m self-tracking trailed sprayer with auto-rate controller. Prices range from £25,000 to £40,000, depending on how much clever kit you want. Meanwhile, the company was also showing a front-rear 24m combination with 1,400-litre tank at the front and 1,600 litres at the back, giving a 3,000-litre combination.
Price of the rear tank plus boom is £20,000 to £28,000, depending on how much kit you want, and the front tank costs £5,000.
