Home Owner Experience Days
John Deere Experience Days 2015
From the power and performance of the popular Gator utility vehicle and new TerrainCut front rotary mowers to the versatility of the R Series compact tractor range, interested customers from all industry sectors can get first-hand experience of John Deere’s latest commercial turf equipment at a number of open day events in 2015.
John Deere dealers in the UK and Ireland are hosting a series of Experience Days from March to September. Visitors can test drive a range of machines, as well as see the benefits of John Deere solutions such as overnight parts availability, flexible finance programmes from John Deere Financial and PowerGard maintenance and repair plans.
With the Gator range, John Deere manufactures the broadest range of utility vehicles in the industry. Gators are ideally suited to a wide variety of transporting, loading, hauling and general materials handling duties, and the 4WD models are equally at home in heavy mud or on delicate sports turf areas.
Leading cut quality and fast mowing speeds for more efficient operation are features of the company’s commercial mowing equipment line-up. The range offers something for everyone, from walk-behind rotary or cylinder mowers though to the X950R diesel lawn tractor and on up to the new 1500 Series TerrainCut front mowers.
John Deere’s versatile and powerful compact utility tractors from the 1R up to the 4R Series offer high levels of operator comfort and manoeuvrability. On the majority of models, the eHydro transmission boasts a unique combination of LoadMatch, MotionMatch and SpeedMatch features, while the new award-winning Hitch Assist system makes coupling up implements and trailers to the tractor’s rear hitch quicker, easier and safer.
Full details of the John Deere 2015 Commercial Experience Days, including all the host dealers, dates and venues and how to register online, can be found on the company’s website at www.john-deere-experience-day.com

Billygoat walk behind vacuums, great for leaf clearing
It's that time of year again where anyone with trees will know the fun that comes with clearing the dropped leaves.
The often back braking work of raking up, picking up, bagging, shredding and dumping can be simplified and sped up by a BillyGoat vacuum.
The BillyGoat vacuum range is vast but all share the same purpose, to vacuum up material and compress it into an easily emptied bag while you walk behind!

P Tuckwell ltd managing director, James Tuckwell has conquered one of the most gruelling mountain stages of the Tour de France cycling race, in aid of a charity supporting young people with disabilities.
James and his partner Hannah White, overcame the 92-mile uphill climb from Pau to Hautacam in the French Pyrenean mountain range on their bikes earlier this month to raise money for charity Action For Kids.
L’Etape du Tour, the 18th stage of the Tour de France, is open to amateur cyclists keen to emulate the professionals by reaching the Tourmalet, the highest road in the central Pyrenees.
Riders in this year’s Tour de France followed in James’s tracks the following Thursday when they reached the 18th stage of the race before crossing the race finish line of the race on the Sunday.
James expained to us:
“The L’Etape du Tour is renowned for being one of the toughest amateur cycling sportives, but it totally surpassed my expectations. It was a true test of mental determination as well as being hugely physically demanding.
“The conditions were as bad as they get. Temperatures were near to freezing and the rain was relentless. There were many times I thought we would have to abandon, like many others.
“I’m so glad we finished and were able to raise some money for such a worthy cause. Knowing that the young people Action For Kids supports were following us and willing us on, kept us going!
Action For Kids chief executive Graham Duncan said: “The grit, guts and determination taken to complete this challenge leaves me speechless. The fact that James undertook this on behalf of our young people makes it all the more amazing.
“I hope this demonstration of commitment to what we do for young disabled people and the money raised will help us make even more positive changes in their lives.”
James would like to thank John Deere, JCB, Vaderstad, Kverneland and Greggoire Besson who all sponsored him raising over £1,400 for this great charity.
If you wish to donate to James and Hannah’s fundraising efforts, visit justgiving.com/hannahWhite2014, or text “VELO96” to 70070 followed by the amount you want to donate.

Eliet shredders, inteligent shredding
The Eliet shredders supplied by Tuckwells feature some unique advantages over conventional shredders.
Eliet use a "chopping principle" that means the material fed is in cut along the grain (like splitting firewood) instead of across like a conventional machine. This chopping action results in self feeding, lower power consumption, lower noise, lower fuel and best of all the chips themselves decompose quicker due to the grain structure being opened up.
Eliet chopping blades also reduce running costs as the blade wear is lower, the blades can be turned around to cut on both sides and can be sharpened with a simple angle grinder.
Please come into the Ardleigh showroom to see the machines for yourself.

Huge attendance at Ardleigh open night
Awards presented at dealer open evening
A late February open evening arranged by P Tuckwell Ltd to mark the retirement of sales manager Tom Glover also included an opportunity to check out some of the latest JCB and John Deere products and was very well attended. David Williams reports.
More than 350 farmers and contractors were at the open evening which was held at P Tuckwell’s Ardleigh, Essex depot. Most were from Essex and south Suffolk and there was a mix of both long-established and more recent customers of the dealer. “We were delighted with the attendance,” said P Tuckwell director James Tuckwell. “There is a great deal of respect and gratitude for everything Tom has done for the farming community and the open evening was an excellent opportunity for those he has worked with over the years to express their appreciation and to wish him all the best for his retirement.”
The open evening started at 7pm and guests enjoyed a hog roast and a bar, the opportunity for those in the industry to get together socially enjoyed by everyone present. “It was a great evening,” said James adding that the last guests departed well after midnight.
John Deere UK managing director Richard Johnson gave an address in which he acknowledged Tom’s dedication and loyalty to the John Deere brand and its customers, and P Tuckwell managing director Paul Tuckwell also paid tribute to the retiring sales manager’s contribution over the years.
Another member of staff receiving an award was group service director Colin Coombes who celebrated 50 years’ employment with P Tuckwell last year.
New products on show from John Deere included the latest additions to the 7R series as well as a 6RC series tractor with a front loader, both supplied for the evening by John Deere. New models from JCB on display were 560-80 and 531-70 Loadalls and a 434 wheeled loader. “Visitors made the most of the evening to find out about the latest products and to discuss their requirements for the coming year,” explained James. “Our sales specialists Paul Coffey and Martin Seabrook were kept busy all evening and received many enquiries and the lawn and garden products were in demand too.”
James said the evening was a total success; “It was most enjoyable for everyone who attended and Tom was very pleased with the response. He has been handing over his customers to other members of our sales team over the past few years in preparation for his retirement but his calm nature and ambassadorial qualities will be missed, both by colleagues and his many loyal customers.”
The open evening was well attended by long-established and recent customers from the Essex and Suffolk farming communities

Mulching? facts and fiction
As we are now quickly approaching the cutting season the inevitable question of mulching vs collecting will be coming up time and time again.
Mulching grass works by the mower keeping cuttings within the mower deck and cutting it repeatedly until it leaves the deck as a fine paste / dust rather then long blades of grass.
The down side to mulching is that you must be disciplined, it is not the magic process that some imagine it is. Mulching works by cutting a third of the grass length and burying it into the two thirds remaining, this may well mean cutting three times a fortnight in the height of the growing season.
Mulching is easier to keep up with and more tempting to cut regularly as you do not need to go slowly to allow grass into the collector, you do not need to empty bags or store cut grass, you simply cut little and often.
Mulching does not work on very short grass, an inch is ideal as this gives you enough material to hide the clippings in and appear as though it has been cut and collected.
Tuckwells offer a range of mulching mowers both ride on and walk behind from John Deere, Etesia, A.S and many others, why not call into your local groundcare branch for more information?

At Ardleigh we now have various Thor log splitters in the showroom, these include electric, petrol and PTO powered models, all with the same fantastic features.

Firewood processors now at Tuckwells
Ardleigh depot yesterday supplied our first Hakki Pilke timber processor.
The processors take timber up to 50cm diameter and turn them into split firewood. The process starts by loading the timber onto a feed table, the table then takes a single length of timber and places it onto the feed conveyor, the conveyor brings the timber through to the saw which cuts it to your pre-set length (max 60cm), the cut log then drops to the ram which pushes it through a 4, 6, 8 or 12 way splitter, the split wood is now ready to burn, it is sent up the conveyor belt to load directly into your vehicle, bag, box or just a pile!
The entire process is controlled by one operator from a single control point. The processors can be powered by tractor PTO or electric.
For more information or to see the machines please contact us.

The Gator's racing pedigree
With the UK introduction of the 825i we have seen more of a cross over for Gators in work and play.
The 825i is a "work orientated" utility vehicle with a combined towing and load capacity in excess of 1,100kg the performance however is more of a racing specification. Top speed is over 45mph (14" wheels) and acceleration is exceptional thanks to a 50hp petrol engine.
A lot of the drivability, performance and tuning has stemmed from John Deere's racing Gator the RSX850i, the RSX is not currently available in the UK but it is well worth a look at the video of it running in the "Best in the desert" series.
23 September 2013

Small Tractor - Big Job!!!
Today we had a demo that was a real test for our small John Deere compact tractor the 1026R.
The demo was at a 7 acre nursery that had been left for 3 years and nature had started to take over.
We took the 1026R with the front loader to move debris, the mid mount cutter in case there was grass and fitted a used 1.2m flail to the linkage.
Arriving on site and meeting the owner we quickly removed the mid mount deck and set about plotting a course through the overgrowth. Using the loader to flatten the brambles, nettles and debris we cut a gentle path through the growth which often came upto and above the roll bar!
The 1026R exceeded expectations and a single pass took the material down to a couple of inches and pulverised the cuttings.
To see this machine for yourself please get in touch, you wont be disappointed.

This year was a massive improvement on last years show - firstly because it wasn't cancelled and secondly there was a great turnout of people despite the previous years disastrous weather!
We went all out again with 2 stands at the show, the main stand with the agricultural machinery and our Gators, compact tractors and terrain mower and the second stand proving very successful with domestic ride on mowers, quad bikes and pedestrian mowers.
Our white Gator drew plenty of attention despite the impressive number of XUV Gators being driven around the show by show staff (all machines from GatorHire).

All staff have remained with the new business at the existing outlets; as well as the Buckle family who now additionally carry out duties as directors of P Tuckwell Ltd.
“We have been pleased how similar the friendly and flexible cultures of our businesses are, so naturally they have integrated well” commented James Tuckwell, Joint Managing Director P Tuckwell Ltd, “we have been comparing good practices, working on new systems and investing in extra resources where required, we have some exciting changes to come”

John Deere Unveils New Generation BalerJohn Deere unveils new generation baler
John Deere’s all-new 900 Series variable chamber round balers feature a revolutionary Fast Release System (FRS), which can lead to savings of up to an hour a day during harvest. These unique balers will be available in limited quantities this year, before full commercial production begins for the 2012 season.
Designed specifically for use by contractors and large livestock farms, the new 960 and 990 balers employ state-of-the-art technology to significantly improve baler output, bale density and operator comfort. In addition, built-in reliability and durability are provided by the exclusive full-frame design, which relieves the entire bale chamber from external stress.
FRS speeds up the bale ejection process by enabling the operator to unload the completed bale in less than five seconds, which is up to 10 seconds faster than a conventional machine. It employs a unique ‘curtain’ design, which replaces the traditional heavy rear door.
As a further aid to increased productivity and efficiency, innovative side panels have replaced the usual bale chamber side walls. During bale formation, these flexible panels ensure that the baler reaches maximum capacity, and also open slightly as the bale is ejected, to prevent any risk of the bale jamming in the chamber.
The 960 and 990 balers are available with a choice of 2.2m wide RotoFlow or MaxiCut 13 or 25-knife precutter pick-ups, and produce bale diameters from 80 to 160cm and 80 to 185cm respectively. For improved crop flow and enhanced reliability, the newly designed high capacity pick-up uses five rows of tines instead of the four on traditional models. The balers are also equipped with a new drop-floor unplugging system, which operates over the total width of the rotor.
Maximum bale density is provided by the new MaxD bale chamber design, which means fewer bales per hectare need to be wrapped, handled and transported. This design features an offset density arm that transmits optimal tension to two wide endless belts, each 573mm wide. Three powered rollers inside the chamber also make starting the bale easier, especially in wet conditions.
The net wrapping system is now located at the front of the baler to allow continuous visual control of the wrapping process. The net is pulled directly into the bale chamber and plugging is therefore avoided, whatever type of net (CoverEdge or Edge to Edge) or net length is being used.
To further improve efficiency, especially during long working days, the new 900 Series balers are ISOBUS certified and can be equipped with a GreenStar 1800 display. This controls most of the key machine settings and functions, including bale density and size, soft core pressure and diameter, knife selection and operation of the drop-floor unplugging system.
The SIMA 2011 Gold Medal award winning Tractor Implement Automation (TIA) system will also be available as an option on the 900 Series balers, from 2012. When operated with a tractor featuring ISOBUS, a continuously variable transmission and electronic SCVs, this baler automation system also significantly reduces the harvest workload – instead of the driver having to stop the tractor to open and close the rear of the baler, TIA manages everything using simple fingertip controls to complete the baling process.

New 5430i Sprayer with 36 Meter Boom
John Deere’s flagship sprayer improved for 2011
A new John Deere 5430i self-propelled sprayer with 36m boom will be seen for the first time in the UK on the company’s stand (G30, Avenue B) at the LAMMA ’11 show in January.
Over 100 5430i sprayers are now at work in the UK and Ireland, providing high levels of spraying performance and productivity. The company’s European sprayer factory at Horst in The Netherlands has now started production of an enhanced machine for 2011, featuring new developments in spray boom suspension and application rate control.
A unique control system known as Boom Charge automatically increases pressure in the spraying system to optimise the application rate as the sprayer is switched on and accelerates away from the headland. This system minimises any under application that may occur, thus increasing overall spray accuracy, especially in areas where forward speed is changing rapidly, and providing much more even spray coverage.
Further design changes include an all-new boom centre frame and suspension, incorporating revised geometry for the folding cylinders, hinge points and anti-yaw system. This new arrangement increases the preloading on the anti-yaw dampers, while simultaneously reducing boom yaw travel.
In addition, new software for the BoomTrac automatic boom levelling and height control system has been introduced to take advantage of this new suspension geometry. Together, these developments have provided a further increase in boom ride performance, allowing the minimum height above the target to be consistently maintained even with wider booms and at speeds of up to 20kph.
Further details of the John Deere sprayer range are available from local dealers or by visiting the company’s website at www.JohnDeere.co.uk

JOHN DEERE BALER WINS GOLD
ISOBUS communications system for automating harvesting operations
Winner of an award at SIMA 2011
The first applications that use the ISOBUS communications protocol are a major technological leap for controlling machines and carrying out operations, particularly in harvesting:
The “ISOBUS Baler Automation” is a system that enables data to be exchanged in both directions between tractors and round baler presses. The baler press can automatically trigger various repetitive actions at the desired time, such as immobilising the tractor, binding the bale and then ejecting it. Used in conjunction with the "Fast Release System" which features on the brand-new John Deere 960 and 990 presses, it significantly reduces the amount of time it takes to eject the bales and increases their density. The two systems work together in complete synergy, increasing productivity, reducing energy/fuel consumption and improving operational comfort for the user.
Two types of tractor-tool guidance systems have been developed by John Deere in association with Grimme and Pöttinger. Grimme’s tractors are guided by Pöttinger’s tools using information exchanged over an ISOBUS connection:
Grimme’s “Root Runner” has been designed for use with its beetroot harvesters and potato diggers. The tractor is steered using information transmitted by sensors which mechanically detect rows and ridges.
The “Swath Scout” has been developed by Pöttinger for its self-loading trailers and uses a swath scanner which sends information to the tractor so that it can be steered automatically.
