Go Dutch at YAMS

  • Grimme UK is encouraging carrot and parsnip growers to ‘Go Dutch’ at this year’s Yorkshire Agricultural Machinery Show (YAMS)

Visitors to Grimme UK’s stand at the York Auction Centre on 7th February who order a new carrot or parsnip crowner will be able to take advantage of a 50% deferred payment on the ASA-Lift CR-1510, effectively going Dutch!

Furthermore, orders for carrot and parsnip machinery received after the show but before April will receive an additional early order discount.

The latest version of the ASA-lift CR-1510 offers a 150cm cutting width, with the cutting depth hydraulically adjustable from the driver’s cab. The machine’s support wheels in front and behind the four hardened conical discs ensure a constant cutting height, whether running on ridges or in beds.

Carrot growers will also be able to find out more about Grimme ‘s vegetable Varitron 270 harvester, which features a twin hedgehog 150cm wide intake at the front and a multi-separator specifically tailored to carrots.

As well as the ‘Go Dutch’ promotion, Grimme UK will also be promoting the delayed payment terms on irrigation equipment, with growers able to buy now and pay later on new in-stock reels. The offer covers the Primus 630, 550 and 490 (metre) hoses priced at £41,350, £39,515 and £36,095 respectively. Payment for orders placed in January 2024 will not be due until January 2025, and all reels come with a two-year parts warranty and pre-delivery inspection as standard.

“YAMS is a really important event for Grimme UK, and with 90% of UK growers already relying on Grimme and ASA-Lift harvesters to gently lift their crop, we’re looking forward to catching up with lots of existing customers and meeting some new ones,” says Nathan Hotchen, Grimme UK’s Sales Manager. “Since announcing our New Year Deals, we’ve had a very positive response, and we’re expecting a lot of visitors to the York Auction Centre to be interested in going Dutch with us!”
