On 15 October 2020, the new John Deere 7310 R tractor cleared the port. The massive machine was then transported up to Beacon Farms, in Frank Sound, where it is now part of our fleet of farm equipment.
The main purpose of this huge tractor is to pull our new Valentini tiller. The combination of these two machines will greatly increase the area of land that we can quickly prepare for cultivation.
Various attachments can make this tractor a versatile vehicle. We could potentially have this tractor set up to fully prepare fields by mounding the soil into rows, laying drip irrigation hoses and covering with plastic mulch; all done with a single machine operator in one pass.
