David needed a compact tractor that was good on wet pasture land and stable on his steep lying fields. The SOLIS 20hp four wheel drive tractor was supplied with Turf tyres for added low ground pressure & stability. A 1.32m cut width Del Morino flail mower was recommended for the grass and reed clump cutting & a folding 6ft mounted chain harrow for field maintenance to help remove dead grass/weeds and level humps.

David's comment:

"Thank you very much for spending so much time giving me your help and advice yesterday. I spent a happy afternoon harrowing the fields and everything seemed to work very well."

"We travelled down to see the Kubota KX016-4 at James's yard and were surprised at the high standard of his machinery. The Kubota we had discussed was well above our expectation and really well presented. It came fully serviced with a full set of buckets & all the correct paperwork."

"Many thanks James- Great job"!

Nigel Turton, Master Thatcher, Chairman of the National Society of Master Thatchers & President of the International Thatching Society, based in Dorset, required a machine to lift, handle and stack the thatch straw & reed bales. He asked James for his help to find him the right machine for his specific requirements that would load & unload the thatch bales, work in confined spaces and stack bales 5 high in the barn.

"James found us the JCB Diesel Teletruk, which is ideal for our job and has made our lives so much easier handling the heavy thatch bales. We are absolutely delighted with the machine which was within our budget and presented to a really high standard. Many thanks James. A 'Proper Job' and we are very pleased."

Tony & Audrey required a compact tractor to replace there Quad bike for all the operations of field management for their smallholding with horses & sheep. They saw the Tallut Machinery stand at the Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show and after looking at all the different makes of compact tractor available they decided on the Solis 26 hp compact tractor for its build quality, comfort and value for money.

They took delivery of their New Solis 26 tractor the following day with a 1.5t hydraulic tipping trailer supplied by James.

A month later they asked James to fit a Solis 3300 Front Loader to their Solis 26 to manage all the tasks around their small holding and also supply a post knocker attachment, to make life easier, as they wanted to put new fencing around their fields.


"We love the Solis 26 Tractor as it is easy to drive for myself & my wife, very well built and excellent value for money. The loader unit is a high quality piece of kit and makes our life so much more productive! We have been building a winter turn out hard stand for our horses using the loader & trailer to move/spread the MOT and remove spoil."

"All our Solis kit has performed faultlessly. The industrial tyres are perfect for our type of ground with very little impact or damage caused."

Many thanks James for a great service and excellent tractor.

Ian, Simon & Matt had been looking for a 4wd diesel Gator for their farm to enable them to carry out fencing/farm jobs in wet conditions , slug pelleting and to use on farm shoot.days. They came to see James who had an immaculate condition 2013 machine with low hours, at an extremely competitive price.


Ian's quote:

We had looked at several machines at main dealers which had much higher hours and were not nearly in such a good condition. We had previously purchase a JCB Loadall from James which has done us very well and on seeing the Gator, which looked like new, agreed a deal. Very pleased.& immaculately just need to get it muddy!
